How to migrate to the SAS environment with Selerity
Migrating your SAS environment to the cloud instead of running your own on-premises server(s) really makes sense on so many levels.
Once you migrate your SAS environment to the cloud, some of the things you will no longer have to worry about include:
- The hidden costs of maintaining your own hardware, including physical rack space, power and cooling
- Capital investment in hardware and infrastructure
- Disk failures
- Hardware failures
- Finding enough disk space on your server
- Your ability to restore to a previous version of your SAS system if there are any problems
Cloud hosting will provide you with substantial cost savings, as well as fewer administrative headaches. It also allows you to pay in smaller monthly instalments, at a fraction of the upfront fee a server costs… and it delivers peace of mind.
Moving to the cloud is not as hard as you think
At Selerity we deliver a complete SAS cloud migration service, safely and securely migrating your system from on-premise to the cloud, while minimising any downtime.
Assess: We assess your existing on-premise environment
We take the time to assess your existing SAS environment and discuss how you are currently using and administering SAS, as well as your plans for the future.
Plan: We work out the best way to architect your cloud environment
Before we construct your new cloud environment we consult with you so we can work out the best way to set up the cloud for your SAS environment, including how to integrate with your existing infrastructure to provide seamless access to data sources as well as how your users will interact with the cloud.
Build: We create your new cloud environment
We build your target SAS environment in the cloud. At this crucial time we act as liaison between SAS and you, work closely with your IT department and follow tight procedures.
Validate: We validate your new cloud environment
Our extensive installation experience and well documented procedures validate that your cloud environment is provisioned to the high standard we expect.
Migrate: We seamlessly migrate your SAS content to the cloud
Once we’ve made sure all aspects of your cloud environment work as they should, we migrate your SAS content to the cloud and work with you to run through a number of test cases to ensure everything is working as expected.
Cutover: Time to switch!
Now that your SAS system is in the cloud and working we take you through your new SAS cloud environment and ensure you’re comfortable with all aspects of using it. We also show you how to take advantage of any new functionality.
You can now enjoy fast, worry-free access to the SAS environment you need, while your IT department can focus on your business initiatives rather than on maintaining your system.
