Post-Migration Validation Service: Speed up Time to Value

RiverMeadow will assist in the post-migration acceptance testing process by validating if application components are communicating as required and that application and operational services are running. This reduces the burden on Application Owners, allowing for an easier transition from the migration factory to Operation, post cutover.

The Post-Migration Validation phase occurs once the migration and post-migration stack transformation phase has been completed. It serves as a combination of automated and manual tasks to ensure the migrated workload is ready for handoff with additional testing as needed.

Post-migration Validation seeks to provide some level of functional testing as applied to the Cloud, Virtual Machine, Operating System and Application.

Activities in this phase could include but are not limited to: 

Cloud agent to backplane communication
Cloud Backup/ Recovery configuration and enablement
RDP or SSH connection validation
Windows Firewall, iptables, SELinux, and NSG/SG configuration validation
Domain / LDAP joined
Windows Operating System activation with KMS servers
RedHat Operating System activation with Cloud Access
Group Policy Objects being applied
Access to Microsoft SQL databases via SQL Management Studio, Azure SQL, Connection Strings, ODBC etc. to ensure DB Engine is ready to serve applications
Windows Services / Linux Daemons are functional and event logs are clean
Light Application reconfiguration testing based on provided documentation – includes reconfiguration eg: changes to ODBC, Database Connection Strings or static configuration files for repointing IP addresses
Light Application testing based on provided functional test plan: load application UI / Portal to ensure authentication and connectivity with other systems
