Cloud Adoption Consulting
Whether your business new to the cloud or already there, you need a solid architectural foundation to your infrastructure, and a robust security posture to maximize performance and cost and business benefits of digital transformation. Our cloud adoption and cloud migration consulting services will get you there.
Application and Data Migration Services
We care about your security and compliance requirements in the cloud
You're tired of managing your own servers and data storage so you want to move to the public cloud. Your company is growing, but it feels like your on-premises IT infrastructure just can't keep up.
Call up an AWS partner consulting team with technical expertise dedicated to making sure that your company's transition to the cloud is as smooth and seamless as possible. Through our cloud migration consulting services, we'll help you with the full cloud migration process to digitally transform and migrate all of your workloads including data and applications from on-premises infrastructure or other cloud environments and platforms into Amazon Web Services. The end result is that everything will run faster, more efficiently, at a more manageable price point, and meet your business needs better than ever before.
Moving to the cloud is not just about cloud migration, it's about the cloud strategy, your business goals, and the process of cloud adoption. For a successful cloud adoption project you need secure and reliable cloud infrastructure in terms of both the technical architecture and the processes within your company to enable you to leverage the full power of the cloud.
Cloud adoption is enormously rewarding, and even if you are already in the cloud, you may not be scratching the surface of what the public cloud has to offer. Our combined years of cloud consulting experience in migrating companies' workloads into into the public cloud has made enormous differences for our clients. Let our cloud infrastructure consultant team handle the migration process for your business to ensure everything runs smoothly.
Migrate with confidence and without cost surprises
Seamless transition, minimal down-time
Cloud adoption has many benefits, but the cost of cloud migration can vary heavily depending on how complex your data and applications are and which services you need to use. Our AWS consulting experts offer a collective level of specialization to ensure project success. We will work closely with you through the customer lifecycle to ensure your architecture is fine-tuned for security and cost savings, and we'll suggest solutions you may not have thought of. Some of the ways your cloud migration process will do that include:
Once you have assessed your readiness for digital transformation, identified potential initiatives and aligned them with key stakeholders and measurable business benefits, it is time to prioritize the initiatives to focus on. This will allow you to maximize the benefits of your limited resources. We'll help you with this planning phase to identify the cloud services that could best optimize, complement, modernize, and deliver business value for your workloads and business applications.
Selecting cloud migration strategies
The cloud migration consulting process begins with a deep dive, identifying the dependencies for each application that is under consideration for migration to the cloud. Whether using automated tools or manual processes by our cloud experts, it's critical to work with your internal team to choose the right cloud migration strategy for each workload. The broad cloud migration strategy options include rehost or "lift-and-shift," replatform, repurchase, refactor, retire, and retain. Once the most logical option has been chosen for each workload, we then we choose the right cloud migration tools to get the job done.
Our application modernization consulting service will help you make your applications optimized for the cloud. With this service, our experienced consultants will work with your team to apply best practices to reduce the number of servers, virtual cloud machines, overall data center footprint, and operational overhead associated with your application infrastructure and help you save costs. Our cloud experts will work with your team to evaluate the application's architecture and recommend steps to improve your application's performance, security, use of appropriate cloud services for the workload.
Cloud migration presents an opportunity when it comes to including automation for both provisioning and managing cloud infrastructure data centres in cloud regions that ensure your data is secure and compliant with data residency regulations. We can help your company leverage cloud based solutions to standardize resource configurations across your IT infrastructure using infrastructure-as-code tools such as Terraform and cloud services like AWS CloudFormation. This is a critical component of your cloud journey because it frees your teams to spend less time maintaining servers and more time writing great code.
Deployment and testing automation
Our cloud migration solutions provide DevOps engineers to lay the foundation for software development life cycle (SDLC) automation. This will enable your team to maximize software quality through continuous integration, build testing, and continuous delivery, reducing time to market and dramatically reducing bugs in production. This makes your internal or external customers, and development teams happy.
Monitoring and measurement
At part of our cloud migration services, we provide operational support by monitoring and measuring your deployments and infrastructure to identify issues and opportunities in your cloud environment, optimize its performance, ensure a smooth transition, meet your business goals, and increase the return on your technology investment.
We started using Pilotcore to handle our AWS assets and configuration. They've done an amazing job. The implementation of Terraform for asset configuration brought us to a new level of organization and security. We were lucky to have found Pilotcore.

Frequently asked questions
In the context of cloud, architecture refers to the network design, permissions, firewall settings, security groups, data storage, compute resources, monitoring tools, disaster recovery plans, and other components that go into a cloud environment. A cloud architect will usually produce an architecture design based on client business and technical requirements that will be used by engineers for the build and migration. Cloud computing architecture should be completed and approved in advance of any implementation.
The cloud refers to compute, storage and other resources provided on-demand using pay-as-you-go billing. Underpinning the cloud is a network of highly secure data centres with physical hardware. The cloud offers three service models, Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS), Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS), and Software-as-a-service (SaaS). Please see our blog post What Are the Different Types of Cloud Computing? for more information.
The term "cloud native" refers to an application architecture using tools and principles unique to the cloud. Migrating to cloud native application architectures can be enormously rewarding. Please see our blog post What Is Cloud Native? A Primer for more information.
Infrastructure-as-code or IaC is the practice of using software tools like Terraform or AWS CDK to define cloud infrastructure in coded files that are then executed to create the defined resources. This enables a high level of transparency and ease of collaboration on building and maintaining cloud infrastructure because the code can be managed through source control systems like Git. Management of infrastructure using this model can also be automated through CI/CD pipelines.
