When you are involved in cloud computing for a long time, you will indeed know a lot of executives who are working on the move to cloud-based computing. Nowadays, everything is becoming cloud-based. We are starting to depend a lot on clouds which are connected to our personal devices. After the cloud was introduced, a lot of companies actually started migrating all of their work and their content into clouds because if their equipment were sabotaged, they would still have their work no matter what and no matter where they are, if they have an internet connection they could access it by all means.
All they need to make sure is that they have a device with enough battery to load the data as well as a decently established internet connection that will stay connected to the server. In this brief guide, I will provide a checklist:
- You should establish the migration-architect roles
- Choosing the level of cloud integration
- Make sure that you establish the cloud KPIs
- Selecting a single cloud or even go multiple clouds
- Make sure that you establish a decent performance baseline
- Prioritize the migration components
- Perform any kind of necessary refactoring
- Make sure that you create a good and decent data migration plan
- You should also switch over production
- You should also review the application resource allocation
The things in the checklist have been known to cover a lot of ground, but you should also know that there are a lot of other things that you should consider when you are thinking about cloud migration. You should also create a safe and secure cloud environment and is indeed a critical part of any kind of cloud migration. The major cloud systems have been known to offer some significant resources and tooling in order to help you build and even maintain a good and also secure system.
When we are talking about cloud costs, there are indeed two rules of thumbs about the cloud pricing, one being the cloud is certainly cheaper than an on-premise option and two being; the cloud is more expensive in other cases. Both can be either true or false, and that would completely depend on the situation. It is indeed possible to start using the cloud, and you can also find out that the infrastructure bill has increased when compared to what you had been spending on the physical data center.
When you want to go for an on-site option, you will actually have to deal with the costs of having a dedicated place that has all of the data and you will also have to protect it, the cloud provides a better option.
