If you aren’t already utilizing cloud capabilities, now is the time to make the switch. Cloud migration involves moving data, applications and processes from on-premise infrastructure to the cloud. Even if you are a business that relies on on-premise infrastructure, partial migration to the cloud is still possible and will be especially useful during the coronavirus pandemic.
What are the benefits of migrating to the cloud?
Cloud computing can support larger workloads and a larger number of users. The cloud can also reduce the amount a company may spend on IT operations, as cloud providers typically handle maintenance and upgrades. Migrating to the cloud can also lead to better performance and efficiency, especially in a work from home situation. Instead of requiring various on-premise servers, the data will have a shorter distance to travel, reducing latency which can have a positive effect on productivity. The cloud is also more flexible, making it easier for employees to access data, anywhere and anytime.
The cloud can put your business in a much better position should there be an outage, security breach or natural disaster. It also comes with improved data backup and a quicker recovery plan, which can help protect sensitive information should it be compromised.
Hybrid, multicloud or single cloud deployment
Before making the switch, businesses must evaluate how cloud deployment will look after migration. Hybrid cloud options combine public clouds and private clouds or on-premises data centres. Multicloud deployment combines two or more public clouds and is usually utilised when backup is required. Single cloud provides both public and private clouds to save and share data.
