Cloud Step 10: The Importance of Data migration
Cloud computing does not just ‘happen’. Vendors need to explain to their clients how data migration will be implemented. This is the most important task for cloud computing vendors because this will not only deal with the future efficiency of the application but also the security of the data.
A detailed plan with a corresponding time frame should be discussed. Some companies may have more requirements from their clients for data migration than others, these are done to ensure proper migration without having to deal with future insecurities.
The cloud represents significant improvements in both capital and operating costs, particularly as businesses struggle to maintain control of increasingly large and complex data loads. However, the transition from traditional data center infrastructure to the cloud can be disruptive if not handled properly.
One of the main concerns is the fact that the cloud is built on virtual resources. This means a fair amount of preparation is needed to ensure data availability.
