4. Pick a Cloud Vendor
Next, you need to choose a cloud provider that suits your business needs, budget, technical requirements, and service model. For example, AWS, Microsoft Azure, and Google Cloud Platform are popular IaaS or PaaS deployment options. For a SaaS EDA solution, you should ensure the vendor provides all the functionality you need and scalable, on-demand licensing, such as Synopsys Cloud.
5. Develop a Migration Plan
Now, it’s time to plan the nitty-gritty details of the actual migration. Some of the steps that need to be planned include:
- Notifying and training the user base
- Data and application backups
- Data transfer
- Application or workload installation
- Incident response procedures
- Recovery and rollback plans
6. Execute the Migration
It’s finally time to execute the migration! Put your plan into action, documenting each step as you go.
7. Monitor and Optimize
Once the migration is complete, you’ll need to continuously monitor your deployment to catch any bugs and ensure optimal performance.
