Frequently asked questions

Who is eligible for cloud migration support?

Our cloud migration service is primarily for businesses that don’t use DigitalOcean as their cloud provider currently but are looking to move over their production workloads to DigitalOcean. If you are an existing DigitalOcean customer, we can connect you to your Customer Success Manager (if applicable) or provide you on-demand resources to help try out a new product with DigitalOcean.

Who is a good fit for our cloud migration program?

Businesses with large workloads that need help with migrating their production workloads or data migration from on-premises data center or another cloud provider – like AWS, Google Cloud or Azure can benefit from our cloud migration process and program. Companies spending more than $1000 on their current cloud providers or cloud environment are good candidates for DigitalOcean’s cloud migration support. Leverage expert guidance and hands-on support from an experienced partner to confidently plan and execute your cloud migration strategies.

What is included as part of this cloud migration process?

Based on the review of your cloud environment and needs, our team will determine your eligibility to receive a one time promotional credit that you can use for DigitalOcean products that will save you from having to pay for two cloud hosting companies at the same time. Our team will work with your business to determine how to ensure you have the right amount of credit to support your cloud migration and assist in any other way we can with our cloud services.

Your business may also be eligible for consulting from our solution experts to help plan out your cloud migration to DigitalOcean.

What services can I migrate to DigitalOcean?

DigitalOcean is a cloud provider that offers a wide range of cloud services suited to the needs of small-to-medium businesses. The core of our platform consists of infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS) technologies that include our compute offering – called Droplets – network, and storage services. DigitalOcean also provides a highly select set of platform-as-a-service (PaaS) technologies including Managed Kubernetes, Managed databases and App Platform.To learn more check out our portfolio of cloud infrastructure products and services.

How long do cloud migrations take?

It depends on the size and complexity of the workloads and both your current and desired cloud environments. You can consult with our solution experts on the best approach for your cloud migration or get hands-on help from a cloud migration partner.

How much of the cloud migration is truly managed by the cloud provider versus requiring work on my end?

It depends on the level of support you’re seeking. You can either get guidance from our solution experts, run through the cloud migration checklist, create a cloud migration plan, and then run tests and execute the cloud migration yourself, or pay a cloud migration partner to work with you hand-in-hand throughout the entire cloud migration process.

Is it possible to migrate workloads that are managed by another cloud provider?

Yes, DigitalOcean offers a wide array of IaaS, fully managed PaaS, and container based Kubernetes services to meet your needs as you grow. We can advise you of the right mix of products and services to achieve an equivalent or better solution across your cloud environments.

What is the difference between a public cloud and a private cloud?

In a private cloud, a single company or institution has full control of their cloud infrastructure and is responsible for maintaining these IT resources fully. In a public cloud, cloud providers like DigitalOcean, help deliver your IT resources and manage your infrastructure for you.

While choosing a public cloud may mean you are sharing some of your cloud computing resources with other organizations, DigitalOcean offers security and protection to ensure that no one but you has access to your cloud platform even in the public cloud. The vast majority of businesses today use a public cloud for its affordability and reliability benefits. Speak to one of our cloud to cloud migration experts to learn more about the public cloud and our cloud platform.

Our cloud services could include helping you with multiple cloud migrations, data migration (moving data), better understanding cloud migration tools, public cloud services, strategies around choosing data centers, and much, much more. We’re here to help you realize your cloud strategy and have a successful migration.

Will the migration process be difficult?

This is dependent on how complicated your cloud computing infrastructure is today and how you want your cloud computing to look in the future. Our team is excited to help with your migrating to the cloud or cloud to cloud migration. Let us partner with you in your migration process and provide the cloud service you need for a successful migration.
