Lift and Shift

This methodology allows to migrate everything from Your regular Data Center in the exact same state as it is nowadays. This approach is usually chosen in situations where You want to empty Your Data Center as soon as possible or have no documentation on how applications work and time is the key factor. AWS provides several tools that allow Us to perform this task efficiently. Usually, after Lift & Shift, We suggest so called “Transformation Phase” where We advice on how to make Your applications cloud aware and, if possible, how to optimize them to work in the Cloud more Efficiently.
