You need to set realistic KPIs and expectations as to what you want to save or spend following the migration. Otherwise, how can you determine whether or not you are successful?


When to perform cloud migration

Cloud migration is essential to organizations that want to digitally transform to realize efficiency, growth and disruption. That is why more and more organizations transition to the cloud.

But envisaging a cloud strategy and a rigorous end-to-end cloud migration plan is a daunting and time-consuming task as you also have a business to run. CloudNation can help you make a success of your cloud journey.


Cloud migration challenges

Examples of common challenges are:

  • Safety
    The cloud uses a shared incident response model, meaning the cloud vendor takes care of the infrastructure while you are responsible for securing the data and workloads. A new way of thinking and acting is required to ensure proper cloud security from the very beginning.
  • Cloud migration strategy
    An inventory assessment of the current workloads is required and a cloud migration strategy has to be selected that fits each workload best. There are six strategies (the “6 Rs”) to choose from when migrating to the cloud:
    1. Rehost
    2. Replatform
    3. Repurchase
    4. Refactore
    5. Retire
    6. Retain
    The use of this cloud migration model to determine the best migration strategy for your workloads is explained in one of our blog posts.
  • Cost control
    You need to design a cloud architecture for the new infrastructure first to get a clear picture of the costs involved. The selected cloud migration strategy has a significant impact on the total costs. For example, if you decide to modernize an application (Refactor) to become cloud native, the recurring costs can be reduced dramatically. The application is optimized to use cloud-native resources.
