from Dev to Ops

Hello Guys, i am a mid level software developer, with ~2 years working in development, specially with Go and Python. But in the last year i’ve leaning towards a career migration.

I love programming, but i discovered that i love the cloud and IT operations even more. Creating CI/CD pipelines, build automations, cloud platforms, Linux etc.

What are some core medium/advanced abilities that i should learn in order to become a good SRE, DevOps Engineer or something related to that? What would guys recommend me to study? What path should i be following to leverage my knowledge in Development and bring it into Ops?

10 significant steps for an effective cloud migration


Moving your IT infrastructure to the cloud has become a business necessity for many organizations. However, the plethora of cloud providers and complex cloud migration challenges can be intimidating to organizations stuck with legacy applications and an on-premises setup for their enterprise systems. In this blog post, we will describe the 10-steps that you must undertake for a successful cloud adoption.

1) Decide the objectives of migrating to the cloud

This is the most important step in the process. You must analyze if its reduction in cost, competitors in the market or security for your IT infrastructure that is behind your motivation for cloud migration.

Cloud migration is significant for attaining real-time efficient performance and competence. That is why the cloud migration strategy necessitates cautious analysis, preparation, and implementation to guarantee the compatibility of the cloud solution with structural necessities. This step of charting your aims will support everybody in the team to comprehend the idea of migration and to understand its benefits for the organization.

2) Analyze the expected outcomes

When you’ve finally made up the decision of moving to the cloud, you must do an analysis of the advantages and drawbacks. This is because of the fact that cloud migration enhances the operations if done right but it may turn out to be troublesome if not done right. SWOT (Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities, and Threats) analysis is the best way to figure this out. Perform this analysis and list the derived outcomes.

3) Evaluate your environment

Before initiating the process, you should make a detailed valuation of your present condition like applications to be migrated and present infrastructure-for prices and resources. This is essential as it will be the basis for determining the further steps to be taken in the process of migration.

A few points you should evaluate:

  • List the applications to be migrated
  • Audit your current infrastructure
  • Understand current cost and resource levels

4) Determine your deployment model

As per your requirements, you can choose among the following methods of “aaS” (as a Service):

Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS)This allows the user to control all hardware and software via the cloud.Platform as a Service (PaaS)This supplements features of development to IaaS features.Software as a Service (SaaS)This is simple as compared to IaaS or PaaS, and is most effective for smaller establishments.

5) Select the right cloud partner

It is very important to choose the right cloud partner. While doing the same, you must consider looking at the partner’s past practices of working on projects similar to yours. It would be better if you could find partners who have worked with clients that are similar in size and belong to the same industry as yours.

Microsoft Azure, Amazon Web Services, and other cloud providers provide certifications. Choosing a certified partner can make the difference between an effective cloud migration and an unfortunate setback.


Cloud strategy and assessment workshop

The adoption of cloud-based infrastructure by enterprises is increasing greatly. However, a lot of enterprises are still reluctant to adopt a cloud strategy due to lack of skills or knowledge.


6) Types of cloud environment to choose

Here are the three elementary cloud types for web hosting and their main features:

The public cloud – it is nearly equal to a common offsite server.

  • Convenient to use
  • Cost-effective as it is a pay-per-use model
  • Run by a third party at a remote location
  • Flexible and highly scalable
  • Geo-redundancy

The private cloud – it gives a single occupant solution to a company.

  • Company-specific
  • Better control and reliability
  • Can be customized
  • Company incurs maintenance cost
  • Needs internal IT proficiency

The hybrid cloud – it is a mix of the above two.

  • Hypervisor and cloud software layers needed
  • Ideal for dynamic workloads
  • Cloud bursting is possible

7) Define the architecture

After selecting the type of cloud the next step is to define the architecture required for the migration. Make a list of the apps that you’ll migrate. As per the analysis that was done in step 3 (Evaluate your present condition), define the constituents that you’ll require. Consider the storage requirements and computing power etc.

Since the traditional and cloud apps do not port well into each other all the time, there are chances that they may not give the best out of them, even if they are ported. In order to avoid difficulties in the future, you must check if your hosting requires outsourced cluster equivalents, load balancers, or database replication.

8) Choose the right cloud provider

Next step is to select the cloud provider that will fulfill all the requirements. Look at all the factors while selecting the provider. Don’t forget to consider the assured SLA, quick customer service, better feedback, etc.

9) Deployment

By the time you reach this step you have prepared almost everything, and you are ready for the migration process. Now you’ve to plan how to do it. Following are the points to be taken under consideration here:

  • Nominal interruption time
  • Sequence of migration of applications
  • Time limit and constant monitoring for a successful migration
  • Alterations in end-user processes
  • Preparation requirements

10) Execute the plan and monitor the implementation

Execution is the most crucial step. Make sure that you perform this real challenge with cautions. Begin with a double check on planning, timing, and strategy.

Here are the steps you need to follow for a successful execution:

  • Data backup – Before migration, you must back up the present servers and data. This would ensure that no information will be lost. Store your data safely and make sure that it can be easily retrieved.
  • Deployment – Set up the cloud environment. Do the provisioning, connections, and testing of all the individual constituents separately.
  • Migration of the data – Post-deployment, migrate the present data to the cloud. This process will take time and may require some changes to fit. Test all the connections and ensure that they are working appropriately.
  • Testing – This final step is very important. Do the testing and rectify errors, if any. After migration of all the data, check that everything is working as estimated. Double check the presence and safety of the data in the environment. You must test it so that the end users do not face any issues while using the app and if any corrections are required, they should be done easily as a part of this testing.
  • Monitor the implementation – Implement monitoring after successful migration. You should get notifications if any issue arises with the cloud environment to get it fixed in time.

Additional things that you must keep a check on:

  1. For an appropriate cloud hosting, scalability is a must. The application that is required to get scaled must be positioned on a load balancer so that it can respond in real-time whenever there is an increased necessity for means. If you are selecting IaaS as your infrastructure, you’ll have to check if the service provider charges extra for this feature. PaaS solutions have a built in scalability to some extent. However, the company providing the infrastructure decides the total cost.

  2. For every monitoring, computing and storing system, proper security is necessary. The cloud providers take care for security concerns like avoiding unnecessary traffic outside a particular range from accessing the machines on which your data is stored. They also assure that automatic security updates are applied to their systems to safeguard your data from being susceptible to the latest known security threats. By storing your data in the cloud, you can access it from any device, and make changes remotely.

  3. For any assistance, good customer service is needed. You must check if your hosting company assures a certain level of uptime or not. This is because after moving the data and customer-facing applications into the cloud, if you still face downtime, it would result in a huge setback. So, the hosting company must guarantee that this will not happen. You must figure out the automated maintenance schedule, and confirm appropriate and in-time security and software build updates.

  4. Coordinate with your cloud provider to stay in agreement with municipalities and software company licenses. When you make your business global, laws in diverse jurisdictions must be followed.

How to document my cloud journey?

I started learning cloud in Jan'24. The first thing I'm doing is Stephane Maarek's course on SAA-C03 preparation as I aim to give the exam by the end of April. But I really struggle with documenting it along the way.

By documenting I mean just posting stuff learned along the way on any platform (preferably Linkedin) so that Job hunting is easier. I found this advice multiple times online but the problem is that I can never bring myself to post on LinkedIn.

Can anyone suggest a good way for me to document my cloud journey that would attract employers along the way?

Best cloud service to master linux skills

Currently I have basic understanding about Linux server administrations (learned mostly by working with systems), things like user creations, file permission, bash-scripting, software installation etc. Ubuntu and RedHat are the main OS currently I am working. I currently use VirtualBox for my learning.

I want to improve my Linux skills into advance by doing more Linux related things, like backup and restore OS, mounting, routing, FW etc.

For that I thought going for a cloud service provider (not free tier). Which has the best solution for my requirement? Where I can learn mainly Linux administration and as a bonus cloud tech. Also suggest if there is a good course to master Linux skills.

Suggestions for hands on experience with Cloud concepts

Hope you guys can provide some guidance on this. I currently hold a senior management position in software product development and, while I'm a bit removed from hands-on coding, I do engage in coding activities over the weekends to stay current.

I am interested in gaining a deeper understanding of cloud concepts and being able to actively participate in discussions regarding the migration of applications to the cloud. To further my knowledge, I've recently purchased courses from Udemy by Stephane Maarek and Cantrill courses.

I'm wondering if there are any additional opportunities or sandboxes where I could gain hands-on experience with cloud concepts. Any recommendations or suggestions would be greatly appreciated. My goal is to understand Cloud concepts, actively participate in a design discussion and probably motivate myself with Certifications. Thanks much for your help !

Cloud Service Advice - help wanted

Hi, I just wanted some advice around a cloud service to use (apologise if this isn’t the right place, quite new to reddit and still getting the hang)

So I currently use iCloud and have the package where i get 2TB of storage space. I have an iphone, Ipad and Previously had a mac.

It works really well but my only problem is i have alot of video files that i use for my hobby part time, some are very big and on icloud it always downloads them to the device before playing them.

My question is, is the a cloud service that will allow videos and audio to be streamed rather than downloaded?? I’d like this on my phone and ipad. i also have a work windows computer so if the same could happen on that, that would be great. The service would also need to hold a sizeable number of other files (word, excel, other programs)

I no longer have the mac (it was very old and i barely used it so just use my work computer if i need the extra power) so it doesn’t have to be native to apple but does need to work with it.. I’d like to avoid one drive as we use that for my day job work and wouldn’t want to mix the two.

I’m happy to transfer all of it across so happy to come away from icloud. I have 525gb on there currently so need a plan that could manage similar sizes. I’m happy to pay but ideally similar price to what i do currently which i think is less than a tenner a month and also happy to get apps on my ipad and iphone to make it work, just want the option to stream really.

Many thanks for any help

How Azure keeps instance warm?

I'm new to cloud. I was looking at Azure's payment options, and under Premium plan for hosting, it was mentioned that Azure provides pre warmed workers

  1. To reduce cold start, instances should be kept warm right? So who are these workers and why are they being kept warm?

  2. How does it keep warm?
