Is migration to cloud simple?

The cloud market is rising rapidly with a CAGR of 16.3% seizing a market share of USD 445.3 billion in 2021. Currently, 94% of enterprises are using the cloud for storing data. It is estimated that by 2025, 100 zettabytes of data will be on the cloud. Industry clouds like Google, Amazon web services (AWS), and Microsoft are gaining traction by embracing the business-as-a-service model. In the 3 major sectors of cloud computing, AWS is ruling the IaaS market holding 31% market share whereas Salesforce is driving most of the SaaS market.

The more advanced technology gets, the quicker it becomes advanced. The advances in cloud computing from the multi-cloud and hybrid cloud to AI and ML have unsealed new opportunities. It is critical to adopt cloud technology as quickly as possible to maximize its value.

The very first step is to migrate sizable portions of applications and data to the cloud. It is important to figure out where you are standing currently and where do you want to end up after moving to the cloud. The basic process of migration to the cloud would start with getting a cloud hostname. Once you have decided on the on-premises that you want to move to the cloud, there are 2 ways you can go with. Eda data mirror sync where you can directly copy-paste all your data to the cloud. The other is the system copy method through which we can back up to the cloud. Install and run SWPM to directly move the data to the cloud. As the data gets copied to the cloud, change the old hosting to the cloud hostname and restart your serves. You are ready to use your applications on the cloud.

The migration process is as simple as such although it may vary through industries and organizations. Here is how you can access what to migrate to the cloud on a priority basis:

  • Cease the applications that are no longer in use
  • Reserve the on-premise applications that are difficult to migrate
  • Substitute applications to which there are better solutions available
  • Reconceive your business processes to gain an advantage of the cloud
  • Restructure the applications which require rework for the cloud

Migration is the essential first step to maximizing cloud value. In the long run, it enables your enterprise to run in a different way unlocking new value for business providing scalability, resilience, security, and lower cost of ownership. We hope this article helps you with your first step to the cloud.
