What does this AWS Solutions Implementation do?

This solution coordinates and automates large scale migrations to the AWS Cloud, involving numerous servers. Enterprises can improve performance and prevent long cutover windows by automating manual processes and integrating multiple tools efficiently. This is possible through this solution's orchestration platform powered by CloudEndure Migration that rehosts servers to AWS at scale. Today, this solution is used by AWS Professional Services, AWS Partners, and other enterprises.

Migrate large numbers of servers to the AWS Cloud

Simplify, expedite, and reduce the cost of cloud migration through a highly automated lift-and-shift solution.

Automate small, manual tasks to rehost migrations

Rehost migrations that involve many small, manual tasks, which take time to run and are slow and hard to scale.

Manage migrations using a web interface

Manage application and server schema definitions; and update wave, application, and server metadata.

Monitor migration progress

Track the progress of your migration with a migration tracker and visualize migration metadata using Amazon QuickSight.

AWS CloudEndure Migration Factory Solution architecture

The AWS CloudFormation template launches the AWS services necessary to help enterprises migrate their servers to the AWS Cloud. The template deploys Amazon Elastic Container Service (Amazon ECS) to build a web interface and uploads the code to an Amazon Simple Storage Service (Amazon S3) bucket.

The solution also configures an Amazon API Gateway that receives migration requests from the migration execution server via RestAPIs. It uses AWS Lambda functions to provide the necessary services for you to log in to the web interface, perform administrative functions to manage the migration, and connect to third party APIs to automate the migration process.

AWS Lambda functions ingest the migration metadata into an Amazon DynamoDB table, process external RestAPIs, calls CloudEndure Migration for AWS migration, and initiates workload ingestion (WIG) request for change (RFC) calls to AWS Managed Services (AMS) for AMS migration. The migration metadata stored in Amazon DynamoDB is routed to CloudEndure using a CloudEndure API to trigger a migration job and launch servers housed in CloudEndure.

This solution also deploys an optional migration tracker component that tracks the progress of your migration. AWS Glue retrieves migration metadata from the CloudEndure Migration Factory DynamoDB table and exports the metadata to Amazon S3. You can then create visualizations and build a dashboard to view the progress of the migration.
