Transforming Legacy Infrastructure: A Successful On-Premises to Cloud Migration Journey with IOPS.TEAM

Challenges Faced:

1. Lack of Documentation

Our client, a prominent enterprise in the manufacturing sector, approached IOPS.TEAM had a significant challenge – its legacy infrastructure lacked comprehensive documentation. Years of accumulated systems and applications were poorly documented, making it a daunting task to understand the intricacies of their on-premises setup.

2. Mostly Not Cloud-Friendly Solution

Another hurdle in this migration project was the predominantly on-premises architecture that needed cloud-friendly. The client's infrastructure was built before the cloud era, resulting in tightly coupled systems and monolithic applications that needed to be modernized for seamless cloud integration.

3. A Real Project with Real Users

This migration wasn't a hypothetical exercise but a live project with real users relying on the client's services. Downtime had to be minimized, and service disruptions were not an option. This real-world scenario added an extra layer of complexity to the project.
