There is simply no getting around it. Change is upon us. The great cloud migration is here.
The costs of maintaining on-premise computing infrastructure is becoming increasingly difficult for businesses to justify and, by 2019, it’s expected that 50% of enterprises will be in the cloud. But such migrations come with plenty of complications.
Migrating in-house workloads to a cloud environment is a daunting and complex maneuver, from both a technical and operational standpoint. Efficiency is key, as it is way too easy to waste money on a poorly configured cloud.
Cloud migration considerations: The most important factor to consider during a cloud migration is that your cloud solutions align with your business requirements. There are as many different types of cloud architectures as there are businesses using them, and it can be very expensive to redesign your deployment.
As with all complex business projects, there are some good and some not-so-good ways of managing a cloud migration. Come along with me as we discuss some best practices for cloud migration processes.
