Google Cloud Platform (GCP) migration strategy
There are several strategies for migrating to the cloud, here is a high-level listing of those strategies:
Lift & Shift
This strategy involves moving existing applications and infrastructure to the cloud without making any significant changes. It’s a simple and straightforward approach that can be used to quickly move an application to the cloud.
This often means transferring Virtual Machines (VMs) as is without utilizing any Cloud Native service. It is the simplest method for migration, but it’s also the most costly method to operate.
Re-platforming involves making changes to the application architecture or infrastructure to take advantage of cloud-native features and services.
This approach can improve the scalability, availability, and performance of the application, but it requires more effort and planning than lift and shift.
Re-hosting is also known as “cloud-native” or “cloud-optimized” migration. This approach involves rewriting the application to take full advantage of the cloud provider’s services and features. This strategy allows you to fully leverage the benefits of the cloud and optimize your application for the cloud environment, but it can be more time-consuming and requires a significant development effort.
Choosing a migration strategy always depends on the specific needs and requirements of your organization. Our experts will advise you as well as conduct a careful assessment of your existing environment and can provide a tailored solution.
When it concerns migration from other cloud providers such as AWS, Azure, and Heroku, GCP offers several services, such as GCP Data Migration Service and GCP Database Migration Service.
In turn, Exeo, as a trusted Google Cloud migration partner, provides specialized services such as application migration, data migration, and disaster recovery.
Here are the two main techniques of a google cloud data migration service that we use:
- GCP Data Transfer Service: This service allows you to easily transfer large amounts of data to GCP storage and compute services, such as Cloud Storage and BigQuery, using a variety of transfer methods, including online transfer, offline transfer, and transfer appliances.
- GCP Database Migration Service: This service provides a fully managed and automated solution for migrating databases to GCP, including MySQL, PostgreSQL, and SQL Server.
GCP Migration and Application Sorting
Our specialists will offer you the migration plan that starts with application sorting. Application sorting can help you to prioritize and make the migration of applications easier. The process typically involves the following steps:
- Identify and assess the applications that will be migrated to GCP. This includes gathering information about the current environment, dependencies, and requirements of each application.
- Sort the applications based on their priority and readiness for migration. Applications that are critical to the business and have minimal dependencies are typically prioritized for migration first.
- Create a migration plan based on the sorted applications. This includes identifying the migration method and tools, such as the GCP Data Migration Service and the GCP Database Migration Service, that will be used for each application.
- Test and validate the migration plan, and make any necessary adjustments.
- Execute the migration plan, starting with the highest-priority applications. This includes migrating the data, applications, and workloads to GCP, as well as any necessary configuration and testing.
- Monitor and optimize the migrated applications in GCP. This includes ongoing monitoring and troubleshooting, as well as making any necessary adjustments to the environment to ensure optimal performance.

Google Cloud migration involves the process of moving data, applications, and workloads from on-premises or other cloud environments to GCP. GCP offers a range of migration tools and services, such as the GCP Data Migration Service, to make the process easy and efficient. GCP also partners with other companies -like Exeo- to provide migration services. The migration process starts by assessing the current environment and identifying the data, applications, and workloads to be moved, then selecting the appropriate migration method and tools, such as the GCP Data Migration Service. This is followed by the actual migration process, where data, applications, and workloads are transferred to GCP. After migration, the new environment is tested and validated before the cutover to GCP. The process is completed with post-migration activities such as ongoing monitoring and optimization.
