The leader in cloud-native business solutions
PRODYNA can help you to transform your custom software development and system architecture into a cloud-native landscape.
PRODYNA supported leading organizations across industries by transforming their business to the cloud. As a result, we can speed up your migration securely with the knowledge we gained.
Many strategies can be used for cloud migration depending on the software architecture and its dependencies. Rehost, often called ‘lift and shift,’ is the simplest method to migrate applications to the cloud without any code changes. However, minor changes to the code, known as refactoring, or more fundamental changes to the primary application design, known as rearchitecting, may be necessary to get the software to run in the cloud. Completely rebuilding an application from scratch using cloud native technologies such as those found on the target platform is an option if the software architecture prohibits a migration to the cloud (e.g., hardware dependency).
PRODYNA is the ideal partner for your IT cloud migration. We have developed and tested a four-step approach designed to assist our clients in achieving greater success in the digital arena.
Profit from flexible contract terms and use only the computing power you need. Scale your servers during the day and shut them down at night. Automated scaling is a best practice, enabling us to work with minimal resources. Infrastructure as Code is also an excellent opportunity to provide a stage only if required.
Use the management, administration and scalability aspects of the cloud to increase the availability and reliability of your IT. For example, working with availability zones is one of the standard features which ensures that the application keeps running if there is an issue in one of the zones.
Benefit from default security implementation like protection against denial of service attacks. Componentes like a Web Application Firewall
are easy to add and perfectly integrated into the hyper-scale infrastructure. Additionally, backup services can be used to prevent data loss.
Do everything faster. Faster provisioning, faster de-invest, faster adaption to your business and market requirements. Since the provider will care for the physical hardware, you can focus on your core business and use technologies on demand.
A typical cloud transformation has three main phases. In the first phase, we discover your IT environment and plan a transformation strategy with you. In the second phase, we choose the right technologies to build up and start the migration. Afterward, we will identify the potential to optimize costs.
Discover & plan
In the discovery phase, we inspect your IT environment to determine the current situation and the general feasibility of migrating to the cloud. We need to look at the topology of your network, the machines, the operating systems and the applications you are using. The information we collect is collated into a report detailing our findings and recommendations.
Using the topological information collected during the assessment phase, a map of all on-premises applications, virtual machines, and servers is created to determine existing software dependencies and network connections. Next, the map evaluates an optimal migration strategy for each application and server, defining an appropriate sequence for migrating applications. At this stage, the future IT environment has been clarified, along with a gap analysis and a project plan of the steps needed.

Optimize & support
Following the cloud migration is a great potential to optimize costs by monitoring the needs of each application and reducing computing capacity or shutting down applications during the night completely.
Replacement of an existing application with an appropriate alternative already available as a service in the cloud can be considered a cost-effective form of migration and as an alternative to not moving a particular application to the cloud - either through simple retirement or by simply retaining a single application on-premises in a hybrid-cloud scenario.
Microsoft offers various software products and services for different user devices. The product range extends from the Windows operating systems for laptops, mobile devices, and networks to server software for client-server environments, application programs and desktop applications for companies and private users. Also, Microsoft offers multimedia applications, internet platforms, and developer tools. However, the company's mainstay is the world's most widely used Windows operating system and the Office software suite, Office.
Amazon Web Services offers a broad set of global cloud-based products, including compute, storage, databases, analytics, networking, mobile, developer tools, management tools, IoT, security and enterprise applications. These services help organizations move faster, lower IT costs, and scale. AWS is trusted by the largest enterprises and the hottest start-ups to power various workloads, including web and mobile applications, game development, data processing and warehousing, storage, archive, and many others.
Google Cloud Platform (GCP) is a suite of public cloud computing services offered by Google. It provides services for compute, storage, networking, big data, machine learning and the internet of things, as well as cloud management, security and developer tools.
There are many benefits of a private cloud, like scalability or self-service. The services run on company-owned hardware, which will ensure that no provider will have access to the data or the processes. PRODYNA can support you in building a private cloud.
