Embracing the cloud is a transformative experience, and the journey to get there is filled with numerous challenges. ReluTech provides comprehensive solutions to help you migrate to the cloud and optimize the entire process.
From financially empowering your strategy to ensuring you’re not locked into contracts that no longer serve your goals, we’re here to align with your objectives. Dive into our innovative services and discover the benefits of cloud migration with ReluTech.
Asset Purchase and Leaseback
Straight Hardware Purchase
Begin your cloud migration journey with a firmer financial footing.
As your equipment becomes redundant in line with your cloud migration plan, ReluTech is ready to purchase it.
This straightforward purchase method will replenish your funds, allowing you to channel those resources into a well-thought-out cloud migration strategy.
Hardware Purchase Leaseback
By purchasing your IT assets and leasing them back to you during your cloud migration period, we ensure a seamless transition from on-premise to the cloud.
This not only provides an immediate cash boost but also:
- Guarantees a predictable financial landscape
- Removes assets from your balance sheet
- Locks in residual value
Multi-vendor support all under one contract billable through AWS Marketplace.
An often overlooked barrier to an AWS cloud migration is the overwhelming cost of legacy IT maintenance. Companies need help with budgeting expenses for AWS resources when much of the budget is spent just keeping existing hardware running.
ReluTech can take over maintenance of all legacy equipment, cutting potentially millions of dollars of expense that can be repurposed to your AWS cloud migration. All on one contract and at substantial savings.
- Flexible SLAs: customized solutions to match your AWS migration goals.
- 50-90% savings from traditional Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEM) maintenance, with savings that can fund your AWS migration.
- All major OEMs covered: Unlock savings in all server, storage, and network equipment.
- Elastic contract terms: Scale up to scale down as your AWS migration proceeds.
- Support for EOSL equipment: We can keep your legacy equipment running for the duration of your AWS migration.
Migration Gap Rental
Migrating to the cloud is dynamic, and capacity needs can change. Instead of being pressured into pricey OEM equipment refreshes or contract entanglements, choose ReluTech’s certified refurbished equipment rentals.
Whether it’s for the entirety of your migration or a short-term project, we’re here to ensure that your cloud migration tools are cost-effective and in line with your objectives.
Unplug to Monetize
Maximize your cloud migration benefits by turning redundant or aging equipment into a revenue source. As you transition and some on-premise equipment becomes obsolete, our team steps in to:
- Decommission and cleanse your IT assets.
- Provide data sanitization and disk destruction, ensuring compliance with DoD/NIST standards.
- Pack, ship, and manage the logistics of your equipment.
Let us help you turn your old assets into new opportunities, ensuring a smooth and efficient migration to the cloud.
We’re an Advanced Tier AWS Partner
As a member of the AWS Partner Network (APN), we can successfully overcome the costly barriers that companies face while migrating to the cloud. Through our unique position with AWS, we help customers at any stage of their cloud migration with data center solutions and AWS talent.
Cloud Migration Services FAQs
What is cloud migration?
Cloud migration refers to the process of moving digital assets — such as data, applications, IT resources, and services — from on-premise infrastructure or another platform to a cloud-based environment. This migration can take various forms, such as:
- Lift and Shift: Transferring applications and data to the cloud without any modifications.
- Application Refactoring: Adapting an existing application to leverage cloud-native features.
- Replatforming: Making minor adjustments to optimize for the cloud without changing the application’s core architecture.
- Repurchasing: Moving to a different product or service within the cloud ecosystem.
- Retiring: Decommissioning legacy applications that are no longer needed.
- Retaining: Keeping certain applications on-premise while moving others to the cloud.
How to migrate to the cloud?
Migrating to the cloud is a multi-step process that requires careful planning and execution. Here’s a general roadmap to guide you:
- Assessment: Understand your current IT environment. Identify which applications and data you wish to move, and consider their interdependencies.
- Choose a Cloud Provider: Research and select a cloud service provider that aligns with your needs, such as Amazon Web Services (AWS), Microsoft Azure, Google Cloud Platform (GCP), among others.
- Design Your Cloud Architecture: Determine how your applications and data will reside in the cloud, considering factors like scalability, security, and compliance.
- Migration Plan: Prioritize the order of migration, especially if not all workloads are being moved at once. This involves creating a detailed cloud migration strategy outlining the specific steps, tools, and manpower needed.
- Execute the Migration: Utilize cloud migration tools and services to shift your data, applications, and other components to the cloud. Depending on the strategy, this may involve downtime or be done in real time.
- Testing: Once the migration is complete, rigorously test the applications in their new environment to ensure they function as expected.
- Optimization: Monitor and optimize your cloud environment for performance, cost-efficiency, and security.
Why migrate to the cloud?
Migrating to the cloud offers several compelling benefits:
- Cost Efficiency: The cloud’s pay-as-you-go model eliminates the need for significant upfront capital expenditure on hardware and reduces ongoing maintenance costs.
- Scalability and Flexibility: Cloud platforms allow businesses to scale resources up or down based on demand, ensuring optimal performance without overcommitting resources.
- Innovation and Speed: The cloud provides access to many services and tools to accelerate development, analytics, and other critical business operations.
- Reliability and Uptime: Leading cloud providers offer high availability and disaster recovery solutions, minimizing the risk of downtime and data loss.
- Remote Access: Cloud platforms enable access from anywhere with an internet connection, facilitating remote work and global collaboration.
- Security and Compliance: Cloud providers invest heavily in security protocols and often provide tools to help businesses adhere to compliance requirements.
- Environmental Impact: Businesses can reduce their carbon footprint by leveraging shared resources in cloud data centers.
