During the course of this migration assessment engagement, the Oakwood team will work with you to accomplish the following objectives (the scope of this engagement is not limited to a particular data platform, DBMS, version etc.  We can assess SQL, Oracle, MySql or other data platforms for readiness to migrate and for ultimate data and landscape modernization):

This engagement assumes readiness to migrate the client organizations data platforms, DBMS systems and payloads to the Azure cloud, as part of a broader data modernization effort.

Identify

  • Conduct a physical inventory of all of your Data / DBMC Servers using a tool-based approach (Movere or Azure Migration Tool)
  • Create an inventory of existing physical and virtual servers and storage to determine Azure readiness. This process will utilize the native Azure Readiness/Planning tool to document and provide data/metrics on current architecture utilization
    • Determine storage requirements for applications and solutions related to the organizations data platform / DBMS, that are identified for migration into Azure services
    • Catalogue and review data platform and DBMS servers and network architecture to facilitate design discussions for Azure foundational architecture
  • Identify and discover the current environment that exists in the current Azure Tenant (if present)
    • Document and identify design recommendations in preparation for Azure Foundational design.
  • Discuss and review regulatory requirements as needed. Document all requirements for inclusion in the Azure foundational design
  • Analyze and review connectivity model into Azure in accordance with Microsoft best practice and discuss final design of connectivity
  • Determine Azure sizing based on server utilization
    • Deliverable – Utilizing native Azure tools, provide a cost prediction estimate for identified solutions to migrate into Azure
    • Deliverable – Provide a cost analysis for the Azure foundational architecture based on agreed upon designs

Deliverable

Document and design a design diagram depicting the recommended Azure foundational architecture design.
