“Whether a cloud migration project fails depends less on the cloud you choose than on not choosing the right workloads to migrate and not paying attention to security, monitoring and other critical services.”
We started this post with this quote from David Linthicum because despite the fact that companies have the idea of the cloud increasingly integrated into their growth strategies, they struggle to provide answers to basic questions about cloud migration. In this sense, there is a sense of business frustration.
A data migration follows logical steps to be cost-effective
At Nubalia Part of Devoteam we know where the crux of the matter is. Companies need an experienced organization like ours to help them understand the optimal process of a data migration in order to make it profitable.
We trust the cloud of Google and the possibilities offered by Google Cloud because they are able to offer what companies need: a balance between flexibility, security, cost and speed.
For this reason, we want to show you the basic links that your organization should follow so that the journey to the cloud can be successful.
The first step will always be to be clear about the characteristics of the environment to be migrated. It is also necessary to measure the vicissitudes of the specific migration to be carried out.
It is essential to organize the data and determine what needs to be migrated so that we do not overload ourselves with useless elements.
In this step the applications are ordered according to the migration effort they require. A model is also made with the information available.
Finally, this is the moment when all migrations are validated.
And it is at this step that the main objective of any company takes place: data migration.
At this point the applications are running in the cloud and all data is transferred and synchronized.
In this last step of the migration to the cloud is the restructuring of what has been migrated to improve performance rather than opting for a one-to-one mapping from on-premise systems to the cloud.
