Cloud Migration Blog
Cloud migration is now the new buzzword in the world of business. The leadership of nearly every company knows what this process is and what it means for the long-term growth of their business. But taking a company’s workloads from on prem and migrating them to the cloud is not the only scenario. What does a company do when it already stores its data in a cloud but wants to relocate it to another service provider? How can a company ensure a multi-cloud strategy without affecting business operations? These are just two examples of why companies might want to carry out a cloud to cloud migration.
The cloud computing industry continues to grow at double-digit growth rates. As highlighted in our recent infographic, the cloud applications market will increase by 17% by the end of 2020. Companies have begun to understand the advantages provided by the cloud environment and have jumped into this digital world. Any migration made without the proper tools, however, can be risky and potentially expensive, which is why we recommend using the RiverMeadow SaaS Cloud Migration Platform for your migration.
Over the last decade, cloud computing has evolved to become a business imperative. Companies that fail to adopt a clear migration strategy risk falling behind their competitors and losing out on the significant benefits that cloud technology has to offer.
Cloud migration can be a gold mine for companies. Those companies that take the path toward digitization can reap the vast benefits provided by the cloud and also put themselves ahead of the competition. However, the complexity of such a project can pose challenges, as was highlighted in a recent report on cloud adoption in the United Kingdom. In the report, as many as 43% of companies reported migration complexity as a primary difficulty while another 32% noted the lack of internal knowledge.
Launched a year ago, the AWS Migration Hub is a portal for Amazon and third-party cloud migration tools and services that enable companies to move their servers and databases to AWS faster than ever before. Although the Migration Hub was not built from the ground up, it is an exciting new development in that it brings together three existing AWS migration services, namely the Application Discovery Service, the Database Migration Service, and the Server Migration Service. By doing so, Amazon has provided a single dashboard for discovering apps, moving servers and databases, and for post-migration workload optimization.
Today, businesses evolve alongside technology. Decision-making must be done with a long-term view in mind while also keeping an eye on a company’s competitive edge. Yet as we move forward, what are a few wise technological investments that a company can make to keep its businesses ahead of the pack?
The cloud migration is now commonly recognized as the backbone of business infrastructures for many of the world’s enterprises. In 2016, 70% of enterprises were running at least one application, hosted in the cloud. Advancements in technology have enabled organizations of all sizes and industries to leverage this vital technology for so much more than just data storage.
