Overview - AWS CloudEndure Migration Factory Solution

Overview

The AWS CloudEndure Migration Factory Solution is designed to coordinate and automate manual processes for larger scaled migrations involving a substantial number of servers. This solution helps enterprises improve performance and prevents long cutover windows by providing an orchestration platform powered by CloudEndure Migration for rehosting servers to AWS at scale. AWS Professional Services, AWS Partners, and other enterprises have already used this solution to help customers migrate thousands of servers to the AWS Cloud. CloudEndure Migration simplifies, expedites, and reduces the cost of cloud migration by offering a highly automated lift-and-shift solution.

This solution helps you to:

  • Integrate the many different types of tools that support migration, such as discovery tools, migration tools, and configuration management database (CMDB) tools

  • Rehost migrations that involve many small, manual tasks, which take time to run and are slow and hard to scale

For a complete end-to-end deployment guide using this solution, refer to Automating large-scale server migrations with CloudEndure Migration Factory in the AWS Prescriptive Guidance CloudEndure Migration Factory Guide.
