VM Migration

Moving your Small or Medium business VMs to the cloud can help you escape capital-intensive refresh cycles. With on-premises discovery and analysis tools, you can understand the cost benefit of moving to the cloud.

Once you're ready, we've got the tools and processes to help you migrate using the lift and shift strategy

VM Migration Project Process


(For a free assessment click here)

Project starts with Discovery of your current environment. Can be done in 2 ways:

  • Manual process : We fill in a discovery with the current environment details such as VMs Sizes, Operating Systems and so on

  • Automated Process: Using tools to do environment discovery such as CloudPhyscis . Useful for 10+ servers discovery. Also shows an accurate cost comparison for the servers on GCP and other cloud providers


Kick-off your new Google Cloud Platform project with a focus on your foundation architecture, technical design, long term operations and migration planning for your workloads.

Step 1: Technical infrastructure and Operation Kick-off (Workshop) :

  • Prepare and plan the needed configuration such as Security, Networking, Systems monitoring

Step 2: Technical and Application Design document:

  • Cloudypedia will provide a technical design document based on the infrastructure and Operation workshop for review

Step 3: Build the Enterprise Foundation:

  • Implementation of the Google Cloud Platform Project including users access, security , Billing, Networking, systems monitoring and others


Once the VMs discovery and Foundation for GCP project is setup actual data and VMs migration kicks off:

  • Utilizing Sureline ot Velostrata for the migration process

  • Update networking and other related conflagration on the go
