# Stage 8: Next Steps After Migration¶

Congratulations! If you have completed all of the previous stages in this section, then you have successfully migrated your on-premises Liferay DXP installation to DXP Cloud!

Now that you have Liferay DXP running on DXP Cloud, you are ready to begin taking advantage of its features, including automated backups, built-in continuous integration, automatic service logging, and built-in security features.

However, in order to take full advantage of DXP Cloud’s capabilities, there are some additional steps you can perform while getting started:

## Set Up Teams¶

As an Administrator in DXP Cloud, you have control over inviting other members and managing their access to various areas of your project as needed. Invite your team members and then give them the appropriate team roles to ensure everyone has the level of access they need in your DXP Cloud project.

## Set Up SSO¶

Single Sign-On allows you to use your preferred identity provider to authenticate Users to Liferay in your DXP Cloud instance. This can help your sign-on experience feel smoother and more integrated with the rest of your project.

DXP Cloud supports Signle Sign-On Identity Providers that are compliant with SAML 2.0. For more information, see Using SSO with DXP Cloud.

Ensure that your environment on DXP Cloud hosts your own custom domains as needed. DXP Cloud integrates with your custom domains, allowing you to define certified domains for each environment.

## Set Up a Disaster Recovery Environment¶

By default, DXP Cloud mitigates downtime from service outages by providing automatic disaster recovery within the same region. However, in the event of a disaster causing an outage in the area servicing your DXP Cloud environments, you should also consider using a fall-back environment (or Disaster Recovery environment) to minimize downtime for Users on your production instance.

Configure a Diaster Recovery environment to maintain the most robust possible protection from unplanned downtime. Learn more about automatic and cross-region Disaster Recovery here.

Important

To set up a Disaster Recovery environment, you must have purchased a separate environment for it as part of your subscription.

In addition to the liferay service, your main DXP Cloud environments all have a set of default services that you can configure individually. Each of these services has some configurations that you should configure early on:

## Optimize and Tune Application Performance¶

As you begin using Liferay in DXP Cloud, familiarize yourself with the available tools for monitoring and tuning application performance:

• Alerts can notify you in real-time when your services are running into problems with resource limitations, when they have scaled the number of instances up or down, and when they are experiencing other problems. Configure your status alerts to fit your needs so that you are aware of these events.

• Auto-scaling automatically adjusts the number of instances of your Liferay DXP service as needed to accommodate User traffic. Configure auto-scaling to take advantage of this optimization.
