If you’re running a hybrid environment, you know the

public cloud isn’t one-size-fits-all.

Page 3: How to move data to the cloud without losing your mind

You’ll hit roadblocks if you aim to simply “lift and shift” data to cloud services –

but it’s not always clear how to transition better.

Page 4: How to move data to the cloud without losing your mind

A successful move to hybrid IT depends on three factors:

availability, performance and latency.

1. Availability: One benefit to on-prem data center infrastructure

is controlling its availability.

When a cloud provider houses your applications, you take a passenger seat.

Cloud servers need maintenance, too – and sometimes, that happens at the exact moment you need to

access a virtual machine.

Does this app require the high availability of

an on-prem environment?

Before moving apps to the cloud, consider:

Page 8: How to move data to the cloud without losing your mind

If it does, you’ll need to consider rewriting the app for the cloud – or keeping it on-premises –

to avoid your end users taking a hit.

2. Performance: There’s no guarantee your cloud provider will mirror

the benchmarks you use to gauge performance on-premises.

Page 10: How to move data to the cloud without losing your mind

How much compute do your apps use?

Will they deliver the same results running on cloud infrastructure?

What’s the app’s performance SLA, and can the cloud meet it?

Page 11: How to move data to the cloud without losing your mind

If the answers to these questions are surprising, you might find

yourself raising your cloud budget to maintain a performance status quo.

3. Latency: If you move an app to cloud services, it might affect users’

experience interacting with it.

Cloud hubs might be located thousands of miles away from your data center.

Page 14: How to move data to the cloud without losing your mind

If your data uses the internet to travel to the cloud, it’s effectively taking a public subway ride – delays and all.

Page 15: How to move data to the cloud without losing your mind

To avoid pushing latency issues on your users, adopt an edge computing approach to keep

apps running in your data center while moving their related storage to the cloud.

Page 16: How to move data to the cloud without losing your mind

Remember: Many apps can run in the cloud. It’s just a question of how much

time and how many resources you’ll invest to get it there.

Balancing on-premises infrastructure, enterprise data centers and regional cloud

hubs is a challenge for every team–

but keep your priorities straight, and you’ll reach the right combination of cloud and on-prem infrastructure in no time.
