Transition From Traditional IT to Cloud Computing

Every IT firm in the earlier days set the IT environment by buying servers, required hardware and software licenses and the cost of environment creation was too heavy. But nowadays, the total IT environment is replaced by newer technologies with high storage servers. The cost of buying new servers and allocating space for that created a big bottleneck to IT firms in terms of cost and space. To overcome this, Cloud computing has arrived and it is nothing but virtualizing IT systems and accessing the needed applications on the Internet, through web-based.

Advantages of Cloud Computing

  • Reduction in TCO - Total Cost Ownership

    • There is no need to buy additional servers and allocate space for keeping the server. It helps in the reduction of an abundant amount of CAPEX (Capital Expenditure) & OPEX (Operational Expenditures). Methods of payment for the data storage services also depend on the usage.

  • Implementation of IT with increased flexibility

    • High-speed internet connection itself is enough and whenever there is huge traffic, it enables us to increase the resource as well as we can decrease the resource.

  • Increased Collaboration

    • More productivity is seen as the data is available to everybody at any time and hence there is no delay in output

  • Work from anywhere at anytime

    • Across global time zone, as the data is available any time, remote work across continents are happening in a flexible manner

  • Increased competitiveness & Go-to-Market in a lesser time

    • Due to prompt workflow and deliverables, customer-centric SLA’s (Service Level Agreements). Generally maximum around 99.99% uptimes are provided.

  • Cloud computing has become the key driver in enabling the access to IT systems and functionality

The Process of Cloud Transition

Before doing the transition, organizations should understand the differences between Public/Private/Hybrid cloud before moving

Public Cloud: Anybody on the internet can access VMs, applications, or storage.

  • Pros: Heavy cost savings and flexibility because of no hardware investments.

  • Cons: Shared server is of high risk due to lack of security.

Private Cloud: For an individual organization/managed by a third-party organization.

  • Pros: Highly secured and hence greater control and there is no concept like a shared server.

  • Cons: Expert knowledge is required to manage the private cloud.

Hybrid Cloud: Public + Private clouds.

  • Pros: As data is secured, cost savings and flexibility are more.

  • Cons: Expert knowledge is required to manage anyhow.

Things need to be known about Cloud-Native applications before deciding on Cloud transition:

Architecture wise cloud applications are microservices and they can be deployed independently and the choice of development of microservice is more.

Cloud transition applications should satisfy the below factors.

1.     Security

The approach of identifying, authorizing, and authenticating users to data and network encryption. Detection as well as clear separation with co-hosted services.

2.     Networking

The issues that are related to latency and bandwidth, network topology and security, and extension of local topology to the cloud.

3.     Service, system, release, and change management

Provision of configuration management, patching, monitoring of the system, etc.
