Cloud Migration

Whether you are migrating workloads from datacenters, colocation facilities, VMware clusters, or between cloud platforms, Mode2's migration services ensures you are successful at every stage of the cloud adoption journey. We help you replatform, refactor, and rearchitect your software to take full advantage of the cloud.

Simplify your cloud migration

Cloud migrations are generally more complicated than simple lift-and-shift projects. Typically changes are needed to improve reliability and maintainability, and to automate the deployment to make it more easily maintained. Mode2 provides a high-value combination of a factory approach, experts to guide the process, and a global delivery team, to deliver accurate deployments of applications on the cloud.

Migrate, automate, and optimize

The benefits of moving your applications to the cloud include:

  • ✓  IT costs aligned with demand and value creation
  • ✓  Improved user experience and service quality
  • ✓  Improved security posture
  • ✓  Improved productivity to get more work done
  • ✓  Increased business agility to get work done faster
  • ✓  A platform for future experimentation and innovation
