Why the DevOps practice team is required to involve in Infra cloud planning?
I was talking to some clients recently on the importance of Cloud migration activities planning. I have come with some guidelines for them as part of my engagement. Some of my guidelines given to them, I would like to share as below.
When the DevOps practice team need to do the infra setup for a cloud migration they also need to participate on the identification of Infra activities and the specifications. Which is very essential.
This need to be done as initial step with any Cloud services migration.
As per my opinion we can work with any cloud services like; AWS/AZURE/Google Cloud, etc., by having the above activity as mandatory.
The attached blog/Video contains the same discussion with the details of the steps required to setup a Virtual Private Cloud. The VPC nomenclature we might have seen with AWS. But similar setup or name cane be there with other Cloud service providers also.
Once this VPC is created the systems are going to be hosted on Cloud.
The Ops team’s responsibility is; to make sure the Cloud migration is correctly and completely done for all the live setup.
At the same time they also need to conduct a pilot testing activity successfully which is mandated as per the Agile Projects management [Agile PM] standards before they announce go live.
They also need to do a parallel run along with the past production setup with a new cloud setup for few weeks.
