MOVING OR MOVING BACK
There are various types of cloud migrations a client can perform. One common model is the transfer of data and applications from a local, on-premises data center to the public cloud. However, a cloud migration could also entail moving data and applications from one cloud platform or provider to another, a model known as cloud-to-cloud migration. A third type of migration is to uncloud also known as a reverse cloud migration or beclouding is where data or applications are moved off the cloud and back to a local data center. We can help with all of these and ensure no data loss and minimal down time.
The general goal or benefit of any cloud migration is to host applications and data in the most effective IT environment possible, based on factors such as cost, performance and security. Greater availability of applications from remote locations and devices.
Common challenges we face during a cloud migration include interoperability, data and application portability, data integrity and security, and business continuity. Without proper planning, a migration could negatively affect workload performance and lead to higher IT costs.
The steps or processes we follow vary based on factors such as the type of migration to be performed and the specific resources being moved. Evaluating performance and security requirements, choosing a provider, calculating costs and making any necessary changes.
Before moving to the cloud several things need to be considered. Primarily is your internet connection bandwidth and dependability. Then of course the monthly or annual cost for cloud server space must justify the move. We will help with these considerations were ever possible.
