Migrating an Application to AWS using MaaS

Zensar, a leading Indian IT services company delivering innovative industry-focused solutions to their customers, wanted to migrate one of their applications from a Public Cloud to AWS. Corent’s MaaS was their choice in assessing the Cloud environment for compatibility and migrating to AWS.

It is important to assess the source environment and identify a complete list of critical factors that will impact AWS migration. Zensar was able to explore their application’s workload components and develop an overarching strategy for their AWS migration.


  • Assessing and migrating an application, running on a Cloud environment, to AWS
  • Difficult to set up a new deployment of the same application on Cloud due to lack of deployment expertise
  • Comparing the application’s current Cloud cost with AWS pricing
  • Wanted to analyze if migrating this application would affect any other servers in the Cloud environment


  • Application was migrated as-is to AWS using MaaS in Lift & Shift mode, eliminating the need to deploy the application again
  • Since the Cloud environment was restricted for external access, migrated using Vanguard server that was set up within their environment
  • Comprehensive assessment reports were generated with a detailed comparison of cost between selected Clouds
  • MaaS' dependency mapping capability helped in identifying a server within the Cloud environment that was communicating with the application. Customer eliminated this dependency before migration


Zensar migrated their application from a Public Cloud to AWS with confidence. With the help of Corent's MaaS, Zensar was able to develop a cloud migration strategy which ensured that the application users faced no disruption and the migration budget was within control.
