AWS migration is used to relocate an IT infrastructure or some of its components to the AWS environment, such as databases, data warehouses and data, applications, and virtual desktops. AWS migration can provide benefits such as reduced costs, improved service performance, and simplified scaling of storage and compute resources up and down in Manin projects.


The complexity of your existing IT infrastructure, as well as the timeline and budget you have for migration, all have an impact on your AWS migration initiative. While each migration project is different, Manin has distilled the typical steps of each AWS migration that we undertake in our projects.

Step 1. Specifying the scope of the AWS migration

Duration: 1 - 2 weeks

    • Based on the specific AWS migration goals, create a list of IT infrastructure elements to migrate (databases, data warehouses and data, applications, virtual desktops, or a combination of them).
    • Analyze the interdependence of the infrastructure elements to be migrated.
    • Examining the migrated data’s data model: the size of the database, the number and complexity of schemas and tables.

Step 2. Choosing a migration strategy and model

Duration: 3 - 4 weeks

 Manin takes the following steps during this stage:

    • Selecting a migration strategy: rehosting, replatforming, repurchasing, or refactoring.


Transferring existing workloads to the AWS cloud with no changes


Transferring existing applications to the AWS cloud with minimal code changes and some optimization, for example, to improve the performance of the migrated app in the cloud


Modifying and optimising applications, databases, and other systems to make them cloud-native


Removing a legacy app that is incompatible with the AWS cloud and replacing it with a new SaaS app This model typically necessitates the migration of existing data to the new app.

    • Choosing a deployment model (AWS public cloud, Amazon VPC, or on-premises + AWS).
    • Assessing the degree of change in the code of a database, app, or other system that the migration process necessitates.
    • Designing a target architecture of migrated IT infrastructure elements for the AWS environment (as part of a refactoring strategy).
    • Calculating the amount of cloud storage and compute resources required (including at peak times).
    • Choosing whether or not to keep the source databases and apps after the migration.
    • Deciding on a migration toolkit.

Step 3. Making plans for a migration project

Duration: 1-2 weeks

    • Creating a project plan with outlined resources, costs, and timelines to migrate to the desired AWS environment, risk mitigation approaches, and a roles and responsibilities matrix (e.g., RACI).
    • Setting KPIs for AWS migration (availability of critical services, memory usage, network latency, etc.).
    • Developing a communication strategy for stakeholders that includes reporting and escalation procedures.

Step 4. Migrating to the Amazon Web Services environment

Duration: 10 - 12 weeks

    • Putting together an AWS production environment.
    • Configuring DevOps tools and processes for rapid delivery.
    • Workload and data migration to the AWS environment

Step 5. AWS cloud environment testing and optimization

Duration: 3 - 4 weeks

    • In the AWS environment, we tested the performance of the migrated solutions.
    • Conducting a HIPAA, GDPR, or other regulatory compliance assessment, penetration testing, and technical audit of the AWS infrastructure and migrated workloads (to identify operational flaws).
    • Improving security and cloud performance (as needed).
    • Configuring cloud monitoring tools such as Amazon EC2 Dashboard, Amazon Cloud Watch, and AWS X-Ray.



  • Uses an infrastructure-as-code approach and automates continuous integration and delivery (CI/CD).
  • Configures monitoring and alerting systems in the AWS environment to proactively resolve workload issues during and after migration.


  • Ensures that the AWS migration project’s milestones and goals are met while adhering to the approved budget and project timelines.
  • Manages the AWS migration team and assigns tasks.
  • In charge of ensuring the quality of AWS migration deliverables.
  • Reports on the progress of the AWS migration project on a regular basis.


  • Uses an infrastructure-as-code approach and automates continuous integration and delivery (CI/CD).
  • Configures monitoring and alerting systems in the AWS environment to proactively resolve workload issues during and after migration.


  • Creates a strategy for AWS migration.
  • Creates the target architecture for the workloads to migrate in the AWS environment.


  • Describes the security requirements for data transfer, server, and data access prior to the migration.
  • Ensures that the migrated workloads meet the requirements for security and compliance.


  • Modifies workloads in the AWS environment to migrate them in accordance with the target architecture design.
  • Workload issues in the AWS environment are resolved during and after migration.


The following are the primary cost factors for AWS migration:

  • The current IT infrastructure’s complexity (e.g., a database size – how many schemas and tables should be migrated).
  • The amount of data to be migrated.
  • The chosen migration strategy, such as rehosting, necessitates fewer efforts than refactoring and thus is less expensive.
  • The readiness of the current IT infrastructure for migration.
  • The extent of migration automation and migration costs.
