With growth of its business, this ISV was concerned about the risk presented by their on-premises databases and lack of disaster recovery processes. Assuming that upgrading the on-premises infrastructure wouldn't eliminate these problems, they were considering a lift and shift cloud migration.


A UnifyCloud partner used the CloudAtlas platform securely scan and analyze the company's 3 applications and 1,600 databases at the code and schema level. Using a custom SQL script within CloudAtlas, they collected all SQL data for the databases while adhering to the company's strict security requirements. Using this secure discovery data, the a CloudAtlas assessment and cost analysis was conducted to provide detailed insights into the different IaaS and PaaS Azure services available.

CloudAtlas analysis showed that PaaS presented significant savings over an IaaS lift and shift migration, modernizing 3 custom-built .NET apps and 1,600 associated databases to a SQL Elastic Pool app server. Had the company pursued its original plan, it would have spent 90% more and missed out on the myriad benefits of a PaaS migration.
