Cloud Migration Is An Activity That Demands Diversity And Collaboration
Securing enterprise critical data on a cloud infrastructure has become inevitable for enterprises belonging to just any sector today and continuing to operate in a legacy environment is undesirable for sustainment. The recent past has witnessed many enterprises seeking the services of leading cloud service providers such as Amazon, Google, and Microsoft to protect their data and eliminate the need to acquire more hardware to store confidential data. It's a common notion that these globally popular service providers are the crusaders of cloud migration today. Intelligent cloud migration is a joint responsibility of solution providers, enterprise bosses and software developers alike. Decision makers need to employ an enterprise-specific cloud migration strategy by looking into several factors such as SLAs, compliance regulations, budget constraints and the organization's roadmap. Most importantly, the role of the average CIO of a company looking forward to migrating its data to the cloud is to decide whether his firm's existing hardware needs to be shunned or seamlessly integrated with a cloud infrastructure. Collaborating with a known cloud service provider helps in the achieving reliability, disaster recovery, security, and performance. Hence, cloud migration is equally the responsibility of companies and not merely a service provider.
