Lift-And-Shift Migration To Azure

Lift-and-shift – also known as re-hosting – is a migration strategy that involves moving data and applications from an on-premises location to Azure-based virtual machines in the cloud. It’s a popular approach, mainly because it is relatively quick and painless.

Lift-and-shift allows organizations to keep running their applications with minimal changes and disruption. They benefit from all Azure’s advanced platform capabilities and scalability without having to invest in the re-architecture of applications or the refactoring of code up front.

Key Benefits Of Lift-And-Shift Approach

  • Lift-And-Shift approach Reduced risk and cost
  • Lift-And-Shift approach minimize re-architecture and refactoring
  • Lift-And-Shift approach required minimal or no downtime
  • Lift-And-Shift approach is faster and easier migration
  • Lift-And-Shift approach required low initial cost compared to re-platforming
