Are you currently running a NextCloud or ownCloud instance but not entirely happy with its performance? Or perhaps you began with hosting your cloud on a physical server, and are outgrowing its capacity? Autoize provides a NextCloud migration service where we move your NextCloud instance, users, apps, and business-critical data from on-prem to cloud, or from cloud-to-cloud.
Infrastructure-as-a-Service cloud providers such as AWS, Azure, and Google Cloud let you retain more control over your data compared to hosted cloud storage such as OneDrive for Business or SharePoint Online, while relieving IT of the burden of operating an on-site datacenter.
Top Reasons for Migrating NextCloud to IaaS
- Aging, on-prem hardware reaching storage or compute capacity.
- Pay-as-you-Go – provision additional storage, or scale your instance anytime.
- Grow with scale-out storage for NextCloud — NFS, Gluster, Object Storage
- Switching from one hosting or cloud provider to a different cloud provider.
- IT-friendly features – snapshots, cloud firewalls, DDoS protection – built right in.
- Access data at high speeds, anywhere, with global cloud provider backbones.
If your existing hardware has reached the end of its life span, or your users are complaining of slowdowns such as a sluggish web interface, a NextCloud migration to the cloud can future-proof your Enterprise File Sync & Share (EFSS) solution for years to come.
Moving your data to the cloud can be fraught with challenges, especially when minimizing downtime during the migration is a requirement. When you hire Autoize to migrate NextCloud or ownCloud, we will assess your instance, make a comprehensive migration plan, and deploy a secure, reliable, and performant architecture at the destination cloud provider. Your existing NextCloud data and apps will move along with the instance.
Cloud Cost Optimization
Don’t pay too much for your cloud bill. Outgoing bandwidth is typically a high percentage of the cost of hosting EFSS in the cloud. We can reduce, and in many cases, eliminate bandwidth costs. Storage costs can be minimized by leveraging a blend of SSD, Mechanical, and Object storage types while preserving performance. Compute costs can be optimized by right-sizing instances, using newer generation instance types, and taking advantage of reservations or commitments — for an average monthly savings of 37-40%.
From the cloud cost savings alone, hiring Autoize to deploy your NextCloud or ownCloud instance can pay for itself — plus the peace of mind that everything is tuned correctly is priceless.
Security Assessment & Remediation
Security is an essential part of everything we do. Many of our customers’ existing EFSS deployments have security deficiencies that we correct as part of the migration process. When you hire Autoize to do a cloud migration, we rebuild the new instance based on the latest recommendations from Mozilla and other Internet standards setting bodies to secure the data you store in NextCloud or ownCloud.
Continuous Live Migration
Using our live migration techniques, background replicating user data & the database, while users sync with the existing ownCloud or NextCloud server is possible. With this option, you don’t require lengthy maintenance windows to migrate NextCloud or ownCloud. Live migration is ideal for instances with large amounts of data and/or limited upload bandwidth. This continuous migration option will be included in our quote if it is recommended for your cloud migration project.
When you entrust your Nextcloud or ownCloud migration to Autoize, we will leave the instance in a better state than we found it. Our many satisfied customers include the most discerning organizations, including TV production studios, national property management companies, law offices, and family offices — where privacy & security of proprietary data is critical to the business.
