Lift and Evolve: Transform & Explore as you Migrate
“Lift and shift” has proven a great way for the companies who are looking for cloud migration of the workloads in a low-risky way. The path to digital transformation is full of challenges, deciding which legacy applications to migrate on modern platforms and which to modernize to enhance reliability, serviceability, and functionality.

Finding “quick wins” by moving the workload from on-premises to the cloud is a proven way to start-up with a kick start of cloud migration. Applications are effectively “lifted” from the current environment and “shifted” over the cloud. As such no significant changes are made in the application architecture, data flow and authentication mechanisms.
This is known as the “lift and shift” approach. But let’s take a step back and see the four ways of migrating the workloads on the cloud according to AWS:
- Rehost (Lift and shift)
- Replat form (lift, tinker and shift)
- Repurchase (drop and shop)
- Refactor/ re-architect
There is no-one size strategy, so if you were to ask a cloud specialist, which one is best then they are more likely to say “It depends”. The drivers for choosing the right approach range from using the least-disruptive approach to application compatibility, risk management to ROI, performance to cost.
