Commonly Asked Questions on Cloud Migration
Cloud migration is the process of transferring data, applications, or workloads from on-premises infrastructure to cloud-based services. It involves moving various assets such as servers, databases, applications, and storage to a cloud environment. Cloud migration can take many forms, from “lift and shift” migrations where existing workloads are moved as-is to more complex approaches like rearchitecting applications for the cloud.
There are many benefits to migrating to the cloud for data analytics, including:
- The cloud offers a variety of features that can help you improve the performance and scalability of your data analytics workloads, such as high-performance computing (HPC) and managed data services.
- The cloud can help you reduce your IT costs by eliminating the need to purchase and maintain on-premises hardware and software.
- The cloud can help you become more agile and innovative by enabling you to quickly and easily deploy new applications and services.
The cloud offers a variety of security and compliance features that can help you protect your data and meet your regulatory requirements.
There are different types of cloud migration strategies that businesses can consider when moving their applications and databases to the cloud. Here are some of the most common types of cloud migration strategies:
- Rehosting (lift and shift): This entails moving your data and applications and shifting it from on-prem to the cloud. This process involves transferring an exact replica of your existing setup with minimal changes.
- Replatforming: This process makes a few selective modifications to adapt your infrastructure to the cloud, while retaining the core architecture of your applications.
- Refactoring: This encompasses substantial architectural changes to your applications to harness the full range of cloud-native features.
- Repurchasing: This involves the migration of applications to cloud-native products, typically in the form of Software as a Service (SaaS).
- Retiring: This involves decommissioning applications that are unnecessary or unsuitable for cloud migration.
- Retaining: This involves keeping some applications on-premises while moving others to the cloud.
When choosing a cloud platform for data analytics, you should consider the following factors:
- Your data analytics workloads: What types of data analytics workloads do you need to support?
- Your budget: How much are you willing to spend on cloud computing?
- Your security and compliance requirements: What security and compliance requirements do you need to meet?
- Your vendor preferences: Do you have any preferences for a particular cloud vendor?
You should also compare the features and pricing of different cloud platforms to find the best one for your needs.
