Cloud migration is a big step for any organization, and potentially, a very smart fiscal decision. But, there are a whole lot of questions that need to be answered as you begin to think about migration, specifically:
Are you making the move for server virtualization, disaster recovery, business continuity, storage, etc.? Don’t just take on a migration because it’s what everyone else seems to be doing. It’s vital that you understand which of your workflows, applications and data are right for the cloud and exactly how much your organization would benefit from it. Then address the following questions.
From servers to networking, storage, replication and recovery services, licenses and more, it’s essential that you think through exactly what parts of your infrastructure are going to be a part of your cloud, and whether or not you want to own, rent or buy these capabilities.
There’s a different “right” migration plan for every business. But, it’s probably going to be more work than you think. Let Latisys put together a Migration Portability Matrix for you, grading every IT aspect of your business in terms of portability from a cost-benefit standpoint – and determining what parts of your infrastructure make the most sense in the cloud.
