Trust DB Best as a worldwide leader in database, application and infrastructure migrations to the cloud. Our team delivered hundreds of successful “lift and shift” and modernization projects with customers worldwide across industries.

Moving your workloads to GCP, you can take advantage of a flexible and reliable infrastructure. Also, you can utilize a whole set of valuable cloud services to securely manage your data and build scalable applications.

The core advantages of the GCP platform usually include better pricing than competitors and tremendously fast data transfer speed. The later is courtesy of Google’s private global fiber network. Other cloud providers also use this Google’s fiber network but for GCP it is a backbone.

Typical challenges that we see

Database migration is a daunting task with a lot of hidden issues and possible problems. With our extensive experience, we can overcome database migration challenges.



Getting the best value from all the Google Cloud Platform migration options

Finding the best value in the Google Cloud Platform is a balancing act. Here are some key questions you need to ask yourself:

  • How much do you want to support yourself or how much do you want managed support?
  • Are you planning to run lean or are you planning for periodic expansion?
  • Are you looking for a short-term commitment or could you improve pricing with a long-term commitment?

DB Best can help you evaluate your current environment. We then can determine the most cost-effective environment for your migration base on your needs. DB Best knows the most efficient way to migrate to GCP.

Choosing which workloads to move to the Google Cloud Platform

We take a data-centric approach to determine which workloads are most appropriate for the Google Cloud Platform. We start with data collection that gives us a profile of each workload environment such as CPU, RAM, etc. DB Best then gathers performance metrics over a period of time using our agentless DBMSys software. We also work with our customers to understand the business needs and restrictions of each workload. This helps determine a list of potential candidates that can be moved to the cloud.

Migrating away from your current data solution

Traditionally, this means a switch from one data platform to another. However, just switching the nameplate on the back-end DB server may not be the best solution. Some data patterns and use cases may have a better fit for a NoSQL or Data Lake solution.

DB Best Architects are trained to spot these patterns and discuss with the customer another approach that may be a better fit or be able to leverage new technology such as IoT devices.
