Cloud Migration Elements and Strategies

Cloud migration improves your workflow in a business and lowers down operating costs. It is a complex process involving various steps to transfer data, applications, and other business technical elements. It is the shift/migration to the cloud computing infrastructure from a local, on-premises data center. The migration process demands extra care for an effective transfer. Cloud infrastructure offers several benefits as compared to the on-premises infrastructure: -

  • Reduction in cost

  • Much secure and complaint

  • Scalability

  • Disaster recovery

  • Centralized control

  • Mobility and flexibility

  • Competitive edge

  • Improved performance

  • Better management for increased customer expectations

  • And others

The cloud migration can be from a local on-premises data center to the cloud platform or cloud-to-cloud platform. Here are the common elements of cloud migration strategies that a professional focuses upon during the whole process.

1.     Strategy Development

The process starts with getting the baseline metrics of the IT infrastructure in your organization. It will define the workload stats on your assets and applications. It is crucial to understand and establish the key performance indicators (KPIs) such as memory usage, page load times, and conversion rates before initiating cloud migration.

2.     Discovery and assessment of applications

Every application is not public cloud friendly. Some may need a private or multi-cloud. Some apps may require some changes in codes to transfer effectively. The process may involve rehosting, refactor, rebuild an application. It is the strategy explaining what to move, where to move it, and when to move it.

3.     Data Integrity

There may be a risk of data exposure during the transition process. Professionals make extra careful efforts to keep sensitive data safe and secured.

4.     Operational Continuity

After completing the migration process, validation of business processes is necessary. Professionals ensure that automated processes do not disrupt normal operations and produce the same outcomes.

5.     The suitable cloud delivery models

The cloud service model can be SaaS (Software as a Service), PaaS (Platform as a Service), or IaaS (Infrastructure as a Service). You will need complete support in the process. The cloud service provider provides the just-right model for storage, networking, and servers. Look at their facilities, tools, and post-migration services for a particular cloud platform.

Thus, adopt a cloud platform with the right approach. Consider which applications can decrease the workload and how the migration should take place without disrupting business operations.
