What is Cloud migration?
Migrating to the Cloud is the process of moving your digital assets to a Cloud-hosted infrastructure. Often from on-premise hardware, migrating to the Cloud is moving your business’ data, resources and applications to a Cloud data centre.
A lot of businesses move their IT functions to the Cloud to help with computer resources and hardware issues. The Cloud is limitless, so moving your IT gives as much computer resource as you need and removes the burden of physical, on-premise hardware and storage limits.
When businesses are dealing with on-premise resources, you’re limited to the amounts you have, and growing your resources will mean having to purchase additional storage and data. This can slow your business down and can be less dependable for reliable IT. Businesses that rely on applications, data software and platforms will need to ensure they’re optimised at all times. This is where the Cloud, with its on-demand, self-service offering, is beneficial.
