KCS provides end-to-end services for the Azure app migration. Before we move your apps to the Azure cloud, we will conduct an application compatibility analysis for the cloud environment, a compliance requirements assessment, a disaster recovery readiness assessment, an SLA options check, and checks on security.We specialize in leveraging the Azure App Service Migration Assistant to help enterprises like yours create, test and deploy scalable web apps from Umbraco, WordPress and Drupal on the Azure cloud platform – all at the click of a single button.
The Azure Web App Service Migration Assistant employs comprehensive development tools, software kits, and virtualization to move large web apps to Azure along with their databases. Azure's pay-per-use model, flexible computing options, and efficient resources management decrease the overall TCO significantly.
