Without a strategy, Moving to the cloud is a challenging endeavor
The next step after a Cloud environment has been designed and built is to move in. Migrating to a Cloud platform can be a risky and disruptive task without a strategy. Aggressive timelines, budget pressures, limited manpower, lack of expertise, impact to current systems, and limited project planning are common challenges during migration. With a custom-designed migration plan from HOSTING, you can get to the Cloud with confidence.
Our managed Cloud hosting solutions are production-ready with enterprise-class technologies, giving you access to virtually unlimited memory, processing, and storage resources. HOSTING facilitates your Cloud migration with an efficient process that limits risk to data and dramatically reduces impact on the production environment. Whether a plan includes migrating one host machine or multiple servers, we execute the move to our Cloud platforms quickly and securely.
Our team of professionals uses the experience from the migration of thousands of machines to ensure that systems remain online and data stays secure. And our fixed price makes it easy to budget. The process requires limited involvement from your internal IT team, allowing you to focus on other business priorities.

Disaster Recovery Services
- Data Assessment
- Database Assessment
- Security Assessment
Our process starts by synchronizing the source machine to the HOSTING target environment. During this process, the data is transmitted securely to HOSTING without any changes to the source environment. For additional peace of mind, rollback is available at any time.
Throughout the process, we attentively monitor the environment to ensure the migration stays within the specified parameters. This helps to minimize downtime and impact to the businesscritical production environment.
Once the source environment is 100% synched to the HOSTING target environment, we provide full and dedicated access for final testing. Upon customer satisfaction with the migration, we coordinate a migration cutover schedule.
Using automated scripts to eliminate human error, data is typically “live” in less than 60 minutes.
