The Top 4 Reasons to Migrate Your Company to the Cloud

The thought of migrating your company to the cloud can be a daunting one – is the cloud secure? How expensive is this technology? Will I be paying for services that I am not using? How will I know that moving to the cloud has helped my company? By being a partner with Amazon Web Services (AWS), we are able to provide a cost efficient and secure cloud migration and development service.  At Tricolor, we do not believe in the “lift and shift” method of migrating your business to the cloud. We map out a custom plan tailored specific to your wants and needs. Tricolor has specific expertise that helps you achieve the benefits of the cloud, including cost reduction, security, flexibility, and scalability. 

Cost Reduction

One of the most important thoughts when thinking about migrating to cloud computing is, ‘How expensive is this process going to be and how can it help me cut costs in the long run?’ One of the largest savings from migrating to the cloud comes from the change in infrastructure. Moving to the cloud means that your company no longer has to purchase, create, and maintain bulky physical servers – Tricolor uses Amazon Web Services (AWS) to manage the cloud server aspect of your business. Cloud migration cost is completely flexible and scales to your business needs – you only pay for how much you use. As cloud computing continues to grow, prices will continue to drop as a result of an increased customer base.


Security is of the utmost importance for every company that migrates to the cloud. When migrating to the cloud, it is not uncommon to wonder about the security of applications and data being ran on the cloud. Due to our partnership with Amazon Web Services (AWS), 1/3 of all cloud updates are security updates. Tricolor will help your company build a secure infrastructure in the Cloud by pinpointing network threats with continuous detection and security monitoring. We will store, correlate, and monitor real-time log data, including sources like AWS CloudTrail and protect web applications from attacks like the OWASP Top Ten with technology that auto scales with your AWS workload.


Once your company migrates to the cloud, Tricolor can assist you in assessing your company’s needs and creating different applications to solve the main problems, while reducing cost and increasing efficiency. Cloud computing is much more than simply storing data – web, mobile, social, and business applications are created and maintained on cloud servers, as well. When developing a cloud application, Tricolor uses the operating system languages and libraries that work best for you. Thanks to the cloud’s virtual environment, you select exactly what and how we migrate and manage your data.  


Tricolor uses a completely elastic cloud infrastructure, which allows us to quickly create, test, and deploy new applications. Once the application is created, we use Amazon Web Services (AWS) to scale the application depending on different loads during different time periods – we analyze website or application data to scale when you need it the most. Thanks to the use of Amazon Web Services, you only pay for what you use – your company no longer needs to estimate data usage months in advance.

Migrating to the cloud can be a challenging process, but Tricolor is here to streamline the migration process to allow your company to transition quickly while increasing and maintaining efficiency.
