Amazon Web Services (AWS), which automates and simplifies many tasks, has made it easier to migrate servers on-premises to the cloud.
It is called the AWS CloudEndure Migration Factory Solution. It leverages the CloudEndure Migration Service that provides an automated lift and shift solution with the goal to simplify and expedite cloud migrations while reducing costs.
The new AWS CloudEndure Migration Factory Solution, which uses that service, is designed to automate many manual migration processes.
“The solution automates many of the manual, time-consuming tasks that enterprises commonly face in migrating servers from on-premise to the cloud; for example, checking prerequisites on the source machine, installing/uninstalling software on the source and target machine,” AWS said.

This offering uses an AWS CloudFormation template (used to model and provide cloud infrastructure resources) to launch the cloud services required to help organizations migrate their servers. This template uses Amazon Elastic Container Service to create a web interface. It also uploads the code into an Amazon Simple Storage Service bucket (Amazon S3).
The company stated that the new solution is particularly useful for large organizations that need to migrate large numbers of servers faster and more efficiently.
