Balancing between Cloud Migration complexity and its velocity

How to balance between Cloud Migration complexity & velocity

As you know, the word “cloud” generally has two meanings. One is the Cloud that we find in the sky and is related to nature. The other is related to technology. Both are different things. In this blog, the Cloud we are talking about is a global network of servers, each with a unique function.   

Do you know what cloud migration is?  

If yes, given below are some tips that will help you in successful cloud migration. For those who are new to this world, Cloud migration is what we call the process of moving digital assets to cloud infrastructure. The Digi-assets include data, workload, IT resources, applications, and much more. 

First, let’s have a look at some challenges faced during the migration of the database.   

Challenges faced during the migration of the database  
Selecting the proper data storage options  

It is essential to vet the suitable cloud storage options before migrating its data and applications to the Cloud. Selecting the wrong storage options may lead to the ineffective operation of applications.

Adapting Personnel, people, and processes to a cloud system  

One of the biggest challenges is to adapt people and processes to changes in data architecture. Before migration, people’s doubts at the management level, such as security, availability, and other technical concerns, need to be addressed.   

Time and Cost 

The process of migration includes some necessary resources and a lot of bandwidth which is cost-effective and time-consuming.  

Security and Compliance Adjustments 

Security has been the primary concern for people for not moving their database to the Cloud. If the enterprise forgets to develop a comprehensive security clearance system for multiple levels of users, then it could result in some severe consequences.  

The need for new IT Talent 

The field of cloud computing needs high skilled developers who have complete knowledge of cloud migration.
