Cloud migration Best practices

Cloud migration moves data, apps, and on-premises infrastructure to the cloud

Businesses are adopting cloud infrastructure for its scalability, flexibility, and cost-effectiveness

Cloud companies also upgrade their services with new features, security fixes, and technologies

By moving all data and activities to the cloud, companies may save expenses and eliminate on-premises deployments

Hybrid cloud migration involves moving some resources to the cloud and certain data on-premises

Organizations migrate resources between clouds in cloud-to-cloud migration. This migration type seeks cost efficiency or security

Strategic multicloud migration uses services or resources from various cloud service providers

Lift and Shift, or rehosting, includes migrating programs from on-premises to cloud without major modifications.

Repurchasing replaces an app with a SaaS equivalent. Instead of transferring the program to the cloud, organizations choose a suitable SaaS solution

Decommissioning old or useless apps during transfer called retiring. It reduces maintenance expenditures and unnecessary resources

 Cloud services may save long-term costs, but data transfer, re-architecture, and training can be costly during migration
