Frequently asked questions

Who is eligible for migration support?

This service is primarily for businesses that don’t use DigitalOcean 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 migration program?

Businesses with large workloads that need help with migrating their production workloads from on-premises or another cloud provider – like AWS, Google Cloud or Azure can benefit from the program. Companies spending more than $1000 on their current cloud providers are good candidates for this program. They can leverage expert guidance and hands-on support from an experienced partner to confidently plan and execute their migration.

What is included as part of this offering?

Based on the review of your use case, 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 use case.

Your business is also eligible for consulting from our solution experts to help plan out your migration to DigitalOcean. For more complex workloads that need hands-on support, you can work with one of the experienced migration partners to plan and execute migration. The level of support is dependent on your migration evaluation and size of the workload you plan to bring over to DigitalOcean.

By filling out the form do I automatically qualify for a supported migration?

Unfortunately, no. The supported migration offer is restricted to businesses who meet certain spend and workload sizing thresholds.

What services can I migrate to DigitalOcean?

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 product portfolio.

How long will it take to migrate my workloads?

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

How much of the migration is truly managed 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 migration checklist, create a migration plan, and then run tests and execute the migration yourself, or pay a migration partner to work with you hand-in-hand throughout the entire migration process.

Is it possible to migrate workloads that are managed by other cloud providers?

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.
