Lift-and-Shift Application Workloads
Accelerate your AWS migration by starting with lift-and-shift of your business-critical applications
Most organizations have on-premises applications burdened with high capital expenses, complex management, scalability challenges, and hardware that needs to be replaced every 3-5 years. Maintaining existing on-premises infrastructure results in increased operational burden and drains IT budgets for organizations that are already budget and resource strapped. With these on-premises challenges, enterprise IT organizations want to move to the cloud and away from the traditional, costly lifecycle of buying, managing and replacing on-premises hardware, software, services, and networking.
Most migrations happen in phases to minimize risk and speed up time to production. The most common approach is to lift-and-shift (also known as "rehost") an application and its data with as few changes as possible. This enables the fastest time to production. Once on AWS, it is easier to modernize and rearchitect application elements, leveraging cloud services and optimizations that provide the most significant benefits.
AWS offers fast, reliable, and seamless lift-and-shift migration by providing automated tools such as AWS Application Migration Service.
