Today, not only data is growing at an exponential rate, but the number of applications is also growing. This growth coupled with increased heterogeneity of technology infrastructure is driving complexity in managing IT systems and applications. By migrating these complex IT applications to the public cloud, customers gain several benefits, including agility, scalability, availability, security, and reduced cost.
At Veritas, we are always seeking ways to make it easier and simpler for our customers to protect and recover data. For customers looking to rehost (aka “lift-and-shift”) workloads (multi-tier applications, physical or virtual servers, or an entire data center) on public cloud, Cloud Mobility simplifies migration by abstracting complexity in large scale migration.
In this blog post, we’ll discuss how Veritas Cloud Mobility (aka Veritas Resiliency Platform) helps customers migrate complex multi-tier applications from on-premises to AWS.
Cloud Mobility architecture:
Cloud Mobility has four main components:
Data Gateway provides customers added benefit of scale and durability by leveraging AWS S3.
You can read more about these components here.
Five steps to migrate to AWS:
Automated rehosting (lift-and-shift) using Cloud Mobility consists of five main steps:
As part of the migration process, Cloud Mobility performs the following tasks:
In this process, replication ensures consistent data of the assets is made available at AWS, and all network, storage, compute and security customization are automated. After migration, you can decommission on-premises machines.
Features that set Cloud Mobility apart:
The following capabilities of Cloud Mobility help customers automate migration to AWS:
Customers can migrate at Resiliency Plan level which makes a complex migration project easier to plan and execute. Resiliency Plan can also be scheduled to run at specific time. This could be specifically useful for testing and change control.
VBS and Resiliency Plan provides customers robust capabilities for creating recovery plans that automates orchestration necessary to ensure that business function can be quickly and accurately relocated. Combination of VBS and Resiliency Plan provides customers the ability to migrate applications from on-premises to AWS in a single click, reducing the risk of human error by automating steps required in migration.
Take on complexity with confidence
Migration of complex large-scale deployments with heterogeneous infrastructure does not need to be daunting. As we have shown, automation capabilities such as Virtual Business Services and Resiliency Plans provided by Cloud Mobility simplify complex application migrations. Leveraging Cloud Mobility, you can easily migrate on-premises workloads to AWS at scale and achieve your business goals.

And join Veritas at AWS re:Invent 2019
Please join Veritas at AWS re:Invent in Las Vegas (Dec 2-6, 2019) at booth 1201. We will be hosting a tech talk on Cloud Mobility and AWS on Tuesday, Dec 3rd at 3:00 p.m. We also will have a Data Protection lounge that will be open during the AWS expo hours where you can see a working demo and talk to a Cloud Mobility (and Resiliency Platform) specialist.
