Cloud/server migration/migration

Beyond service information

Supports data migration for server environments

By supporting data migration from on-premises (physical servers) to the cloud and from legacy server environments to new server environments, we create a business environment where customers can make the most of the cloud.

Migration methods that involve importing data exported from the database of the current server (dump files, etc.) to the new server, migration methods that use migration tools that support P2V and V2V migration methods, and OS/middleware associated with data migration. We support server data migration work according to the customer's system requirements, such as version upgrades.

In addition to migrating data to a new cloud environment, we also carefully check important points such as whether database data is reflected without problems and whether there are any problems with the operation of services and content.

By leveraging the experience, technology, and advantages of data migration to various clouds that we have cultivated up to the present, we provide optimal cloud designs and configurations tailored to our customers' purposes and uses.

Cloud/server migration/migration

◆ Beyond's cloud/server migration/migration strengths ◆

Cloud/server migration/migration

There are various methods for server migration/migration depending on the customer's system environment. We thoroughly listen to the customer's current service/system environment and requirements, and sort out any infrastructure issues that may arise during data migration.


In addition, Beyond handles data migration work for various services and systems in more than 30 projects a year, so our knowledge and technology regarding data migration is constantly updated. By using the data migration technology, procedures, and know-how that we have cultivated over the years, we are able to perform data migration work on a short schedule and with a low risk method.


Of course, we not only migrate from on-premises environments to the cloud, but also have extensive experience in migrating rental servers/VPS to the cloud, and migrating data from one cloud to another.


DB dump import

● DB dump import

This is Beyond's most proven data migration method. Data can be referenced even while data migration is in progress. However, data migration may take some time due to the time required to set up a quiescent point during which the database cannot be updated, and the amount of data to be migrated.

Data area copy

● Data area copy

It is a reliable method for data migration as it provides a complete quiescing point for the system. Although the data migration time itself can often be reduced compared to exporting and importing a database dump file, the downtime will be longer because the database will be completely stopped during data migration.

remote replication

● Remote replication

This is a short method of securing a system standstill point, and data can be referenced and updated until just before the system is switched. However, if the infrastructure of the system migration source or destination uses PaaS, there are cases where it becomes more difficult to build a replication environment and the work process increases.

data migration tool

● Data migration tool

Because it is a dedicated tool for data migration, it is highly reliable and has short system quiescence points. Data migration between heterogeneous databases is also possible, but there are many restrictions and considerations depending on the version and data format of the source database, so depending on the system, it may not be possible to use this as a migration method.

◆ Cloud/server migration/migration flow (example) ◆

Hearing schedule image icon

Step 1: Hearing/scheduling

When migrating from the current server to the cloud, select a new cloud/server to introduce, thoroughly identify bottlenecks and risks during data migration, and consider data synchronization methods for databases and content, system downtime, and DNS switching. We will finalize the work process and schedule until confirmation of the work and operation.

Design and construction of a new server Image icon

Step ②: Design and build a new server

Define server design information such as OS, middleware, modules, subnet design, security policy, etc. to be installed on the newly introduced cloud/server, and build the new cloud/server to be migrated based on the designed parameters. We will continue to do so.

Data migration work to new server (1st time) Image icon

Step ③: Data migration to new server (1st time)

First, we will migrate the first database content data to the destination cloud environment using data migration methods such as dump file import or server migration tools. Once the data migration is complete, we will check the operation of the service and system in the new cloud environment. (There is no service system outage at this point)

Data migration work to new server (2nd time) Image icon

Step ④: Data migration to new server (2nd time)

We will migrate the data differences on the old server side that were updated from the first data migration to the new server. After data migration is complete, we thoroughly check whether the data has been reflected in the new cloud environment. (The service system will be stopped at this point)

DNS switching/operation check image icon

Step 5: Switch DNS records and check operation

If there are no problems with the data and content on the new server, we will switch the DNS server records and cancel the service system maintenance suspension. After that, services and systems will begin operating in the new cloud environment.

*The above server migration/migration work process is an example. The server migration method will vary depending on the customer's system environment.

What kind of applications are the services provided by Beyond suitable for?

What kind of applications are the services provided by Beyond suitable for?

Web services such as games, apps, EC sites, media sites, and digital content require speed and flexibility, and are suitable for companies that operate services that are directly linked to sales, and for content development and management. This is probably suitable for companies that want to concentrate, or companies that do not have a server administrator in the first place.

Additionally, there is a tendency for companies facing such issues to outsource their services to MSPs (managed service providers) like Beyond, which specialize in cloud/server construction, operation, maintenance, and monitoring.

Please tell me the comparison and differences between cloud servers and physical servers.

Please tell me the comparison and differences between cloud servers and physical servers.

Comparisons and differences between cloud servers and physical servers (on-premises) include the following features:

Characteristics of cloud servers
Safety ・Since the hardware infrastructure (server/network) is redundant as standard, there are fewer service outages due to hardware failures.
Operational aspect ・You can immediately build a server, add more servers, and improve specifications without choosing the location of the server.

- The server can be scaled out for high load access.

Price aspect ・Since most cloud services charge a pay-as-you-go fee for the amount of data transferred, monthly costs fluctuate.

・Service fees for overseas cloud services, such as AWS, GCP / Azure / Oracle Cloud, etc., fluctuate monthly due to exchange rates.

merit - Resources can be added as needed and in the amount needed, making it easy to add resources.

・Even if the server configuration is the minimum configuration at the time of cloud introduction, specifications can be increased or decreased after the service starts.

Demerit - Since the hardware infrastructure and configuration are black boxes, it is difficult to determine the cause and evaluate performance when a failure occurs due to hardware.

・Since the amount of data transferred is pay-as-you-go, the cost of monthly service usage fees may increase.

comprehensive evaluation ・For web services and systems where the access load to the server changes suddenly, such as games and apps / EC sites / media sites / digital content, the cloud is suitable because it can quickly respond to resource additions and scale-outs.

・When it comes to cloud reliability, most cloud services are audited annually by internationally recognized third-party auditing organizations to provide assurance regarding security, privacy, and compliance controls.

Characteristics of physical server (on-premises)
Safety - Since the data is stored in a physical environment, the location of the server is clear.
Operational aspect - Machine resources such as servers, firewalls, and load balancers can be monopolized by one company, making it easy to customize as a unique system according to the company's requirements.
Price aspect ・Although initial installation costs are required, monthly costs are often fixed, so monthly cost management is stable. However, there are indirect human costs that are not visible, such as infrastructure maintenance man-hours, data center rack costs, electricity costs, and hardware manufacturer maintenance updates.
merit - Because it is exclusively owned by one company, it is not affected by other users' systems.
- Performance of machines and resources such as CPU/memory is clear.
Demerit ・There is a risk of server outage due to physical hardware failure.
・It is difficult to improve the specifications of hardware resources.
・When initially introducing hardware, it takes time to size and estimate the system.
comprehensive evaluation ・Since server machine/hardware resources can be used to the maximum, when developing a mission-critical system that does not go through the external Internet, a physical server can maintain stable and high performance than a cloud. I can.

・In performance evaluation compared to cloud services, some studies have shown that the performance results are more than three times higher.

*Beyond does not design or construct on-premises (physical server) infrastructure environments or provide on-site support. In addition, even in an on-premises (physical server) infrastructure environment, we can provide server operation, maintenance, and monitoring (24 hours a day, 365 days a year).
