"Within three days, I had four different people coming into my office telling me to check out RiverMeadow's Cloud Migration SaaS. We never expected this level of engagement or support throughout this process. Our whole team is overwhelmed with satisfaction."- Chris Swadish, VP & CTO, PCM.
This whitepaper seeks to address a range of factors associated with data center migration. Starting with business drivers, we investigate the typical triggers for a customer to engage in this activity. This is followed by an overview of relevant tools and technologies, ranging from discovery, planning, governance, to migration automation using RiverMeadow’s SaaS solution. We explore in depth each phase of a data center migration from a practitioner's point of view, including a walk through of specific migration methodologies (such as physical lift and shift, versus physical to virtual migrations). Lastly, we explore the relevance and benefits of applying migration automation to a data center migration project, and the associated technical and business benefits.

Cloud computing is a widespread phenomenon that promises economic advantages, speed, agility, flexibility, scalability and innovation. By 2014, IT organizations in 30% of Global 1000 companies will integrate and customize two or more cloud services for internal and external users. This white paper examines the hybrid cloud environment and identifies solutions that make migrating into and between cloud environments an automated process.
For good reason, clouds are a popular topic in IT. They offer numerous benefits, such as pay-as-you-go billing models, seemingly infinite resources and the ability to place workloads around the globe to boost capacity. Still, as you consider a cloud migration, you will likely have to make changes to your data center infrastructure and your organization to prepare for the move. You need to think carefully about the impact on all aspects of data center infrastructure and on IT teams.
Enterprises across the board are hesitant to outsource majority of their applications to public cloud computing, but on the other hand, not every application or enterprise is a fit for private cloud computing.
