Cloud migration

Modernise and mobilise. Protect and proliferate. Work on the move!

Cloud migration is the process of transferring business data, software applications, and other essential IT components from an onsite location to the cloud. In some cases it may involve the removal, disposal or replacement of in-house IT hardware. Cloud migration can also be conducted between one cloud environment to another cloud environment.

Moving to the cloud, or between cloud environments and structures, can be a complex and risky manoeuvre for the untrained or inexperienced. Empower IT Solutions can assist you with specialised cloud migration services that are designed to: counteract common IT issues, overcome remote processing problems, and cater for your sensitive business data and valuable resources.

Migrate to cloud
For organisations looking to: upgrade their IT systems without the upfront cost of new hardware, outsource associated maintenance requirements and focus on innovative new ways customers or employees can access and use business data, Empower IT Solutions can help with migrations to the cloud. Our Cloud consultants can assess your business situation and address your needs. We offer strategic advice to help our clients determine when and how to migrate to the cloud.

Cloud to cloud migration
Our cloud to cloud migration services are designed for organisations that have had some experience with Cloud before. These organisations may have found that a previous cloud solution did not meet their exact requirements, they may have outgrown their current cloud solution, or they may be looking for a more advanced cloud structure to better protect their business data, e.g. a private cloud or hybrid cloud service.

See the Private Cloud section for more information.
