What is Cloud Migration?
Cloud Migration is the process of partially or completely transferring an organisation’s data, services, applications, IT resources and other digital components to a cloud environment from an on-premise infrastructure. If an organisation chooses to only partially move its digital assets to a cloud, it’s called hybrid migration. Once migrated, all data and services can be accessed on demand behind a secure cloud firewall.
Points to Remember
- In today’s digital era, cloud migration proves to be the ideal solution and motivation for organisations to adopt a cloud-based infrastructure. It provides many advantages over its traditional on-site solutions, such as speed, operational efficiency, security, availability, and more.
- Although it has many benefits, cloud migration is a critical process and should be done only after a thorough planning and analysis organisation’s goals and compatibility of cloud solution with those requirements.
