Application Migration

Move your application stress-free

Once you’ve built a successful application, the last thing you want is to be held back by your development platform. Over the course of time, you may outgrow your application platform; your business may take on new services or new customers that require a longer reach, or you may find that the platform can’t keep up with the speed or volume of data. If you find your business is moving too fast for your application environment, Custom Software Solutions can help you migrate the application to a brand-new platform as a service (PaaS) provider.

For modern applications, migration typically means one of two things: moving the app from an on-site server to a cloud provider, or moving from one cloud provider to another. Cloud-based applications can be hosted by a number of development platforms, or PaaS, including: Microsoft Windows Azure, Google App Engine, Heroku,, and many more. Each PaaS provider has a different set of pros and cons, and Custom Software Solutions can help you determine which service is the best fit for your existing infrastructure and your business needs.

The trickiest part of application migration is determining what will translate to the new environment and what will not. Applications created in a specific environment are typically built to run on that specific platform, so it may require significant changes to run in another system. The application experts at Custom Software Solutions can work with you to determine any necessary changes to the storage system, the operating system, the network architecture, and the content management tools, as well as any software needed to bridge the gap between the two environments.
