Reasons for Cloud Migration - Cloud as a Key Technology
Gradually, more and more companies are turning to cloud solutions. The reason is quite simple, large investments in expensive data centers and server or storage hardware are eliminated and likewise one benefits from shorter deployment times as well as from many innovations in the cloud.
Reducing costs with the cloud
Cost reduction is one of the most common motivators for the cloud, as replacing outdated infrastructure with more efficient cloud solutions is virtually guaranteed to reduce costs. In doing so, you only pay for what you use without long-term contracts or upfront commitments. Running your business applications in the cloud can save you over 50% compared to on-premises infrastructure. Your business applications can be ready in minutes with no upfront capital outlay, and you can realize a total cost of ownership savings of 51% from 3 years. Cloud migration is typically done with a 4-step approach - analyzing your existing systems, workloads and their distribution, followed by continuous optimization through re-engineering, re-factoring and retention, and later migrating your applications and data to the cloud.
Room for innovation, through automation.
Based on a cloud infrastructure and associated services, automating repetitive activities in your business is an important step towards the future and innovation. Automating activities that are performed multiple times brings the advantage that the activity can be repeated accurately and as often as required, there are no human errors due to incorrectly executed commands and most importantly there is a massive time saving. While the flexible cloud architecture improves your business agility, automation enables faster innovation and frees up employees to spend more time on important tasks. This allows you to innovate faster and significantly reduce time-to-market. In addition, with various AWS tools such as "Autoscaling" , Elastic Load Balancing allows your applications to scale up or down based on business needs.
Increased security through the cloud
By migrating your business applications to the cloud, you increase data security and benefit from a complex cloud security infrastructure. By deploying data centers and an international network, you can leverage the AWS cloud to automate security tasks and application security audits. By leveraging technologies such as machine learning, AWS makes it possible for you to classify and protect sensitive data. You can offload all your existing security tasks to your managed service provider, allowing you to focus on your business and its development and growth. You control where you want to store your data, who can access it and what resources they need at any given time. As you scale your resources, security mechanisms provide oversight at all times and ensure that there is no compromise of your data.
Cloud migration is a complex project that will likely present you with some unforeseen challenges. Given the rapid pace of cloud development, it can be difficult for companies to fully grasp the possibilities. As such, they risk potential sales opportunities. That's why it's important to have access to reliable support and advice. Deploying cloud technologies in the enterprise can help you achieve their goals quickly and successfully.
