Cloud Migration

You’ll find yourself in the Cloud one way or another. Do it right.

The Why

Optimize cloud ROI with a clear strategy.

Cloud is all the rage nowadays and with good reason, but being trendy doesn’t make it right for every organization or every workload. The cloud has a defined set of characteristics. Successful organizations evaluate their workloads according to these characteristics to make sure they’re using the right tool for the job.

Migrating to the cloud is about more than shifting infrastructure management; the benefits to be gained only come with matching the right cloud solution to each need. Before moving to the cloud, use a consistent framework to identify its true value.

“I know I can benefit from the cloud, but I am overwhelmed by the options.”
“I don’t know how to choose and appropriately map a custom cloud solution.”
“My business is suffering from a cloud strategy that lacks a clear plan for changes in staff responsibility, governance, and financial controls.”
...just to name a few, of course.

What’s the benefit of hosting in the cloud vs. traditional options?
Reasons not to host in the cloud are few and far between. If you don't host in the cloud, you will spend more in both CapEx and OpEx to manage your applications or websites in a traditional environment.

How can I improve the performance of my application?
There are several primary reasons that applications perform poorly, and in some cases it’s a combination of several. 1) Data latency: If your application is making calls to a data source (whether it’s an API or a direct call) and there is latency at the data provider, your application performance will suffer.

Should I move my application to the cloud?
The answer is ‘probably yes’. There aren’t many reasons for an application to be hosted elsewhere, aside from occasional compliance standards, or requirements to integrate with local services that would require large amounts of data to move from on-premise to cloud.

Where should my application be hosted?
There are many different options for hosting, but most applications would do well with one of the cloud providers -- Amazon Web Services, Google Cloud Platform, Microsoft Azure.
