Migrating to the cloud can be complex, time consuming, and risky, especially when you have hundreds or thousands of existing workloads to move. Make your journey fast and smooth by planning ahead and using tried-and-true best practices. To help you get started, we’ve created a guide that outlines four basic phases of a successful cloud migration:
• ASSESS. Identify your team, get an overview of your IT landscape, and decide which applications to move first.
• PLAN. Choose one or more migration strategies, consider a streaming-based solution, and test your applications’ performance in the cloud.
• MIGRATE. Use a phased, agile approach that allows you to revert back to the on-premises configuration if necessary.
• OPTIMIZE. Fine-tune your cloud environment to align usage with demand and implement capabilities like cost controls and governance tools.
