Cloudsoft can migrate, run and evolve your application in the cloud to reduce costs, increase uptimes, respond to events and exploit the pace of cloud innovation.
Challenges and Opportunities in the Cloud
If you run your application correctly in the cloud you will reduce costs, increase your uptimes, be able to prepare and respond to business events, and best of all your application will be able to exploit new cloud innovations.
Are your cloud resources right-sized or wrong-sized? Are you wasting money and does it cost you too much to change?
Are you leveraging all the availability and automation features of the cloud? Is your application resilient to the unknown?
How does your application respond to planned and unplanned events? Is your application scalable and resilient?
How do you adapt your application to leverage cloud innovation to save more money, get more performances, and add new features?
Evolving your Application in the Cloud
Customers need confidence that their migration will be friction-free and that risk is mitigated. And there's no point going to all these lengths if your application in the cloud isn't able to deliver on business benefits: what a waste of time.
The Cloudsoft approach is to essentially "liberate" an application from where it is, and turn it into something that is well run and adaptable for future business needs. Cloudsoft achieves this in three steps:
- Migrate the application by replatforming it to a professionally-run cloud environment on a leading cloud provider.
- Run the application in our high quality managed services operations.
- Evolve the application by refactoring it and swapping out components to continuously enhance its business value.
While Cloudsoft leverage AWS best practices and patterns, we enhance them with our own techniques and software to create a specialised 'replatforming' approach to migration. This is different from other migration techniques such as Lift and Shift, which in Cloudsoft's view is a brittle approach that leaves your application in a difficult cloud dead-end.
Cloudsoft specializes in migrations to AWS and in running and evolving applications to specifically exploit AWS innovations. As experts in running applications on AWS, we help customers reduce costs, increase uptimes and respond to business events.
Cloudsoft replatform your application into the cloud by modelling it and required resources in a blueprint, then migrating data and deploying to the cloud.

Ed: I’m getting a bit worried about our VP of Engineering, Aled: he is at his happiest doing cloud war games and pre-/post-mortems! This is the first of many upcoming posts from him about solving customer application challenges on AWS. Notice…
Why bother migrating to the cloud? Seriously, who is really doing it? Why are those people doing it? For what outcomes? Hang on a minute, isn’t cloud bad for security? Doesn’t cloud cost “a lot”? Isn’t cloud “just a trend”?…
I’m writing this while hurtling down the east coast of the UK in a train at 125mph en route to #CEE18 CloudExpo Europe 2018. Very excited, and here’s why! I’m representing Cloudsoft and talking about our Rx3 solution that will migrate,…
Formwize now has full control of its IT estate for the first time. The virtualization solution provides for zero downtime; eliminated six-figure bills for staffing and IT consultancy; achieved ROI in just 12 months; and save 60% on hosting costs. By leveraging Cloudsoft AMP the application can scale rapidly when needed and shrink when high usage abates. This reduces the Cloud OpEx based running costs whilst allowing for spike demands to be resourced automatically.
“With Cloudsoft we have a partner who makes cloud technology work for our business. We are more agile and better integrated than before which reduces our costs and accelerates our time to market.”
