Enterprise workload migration to the cloud is a strategic undertaking that requires careful step-by-step planning and execution if you’re going to meet your desired business outcomes.
After clarifying your organization’s business motivations for the shift, your plan has taken into account your enterprise’s needs in the cloud, how to securely deploy and test systems, and how data is going to be synced across what is most likely going to be a hybrid and multicloud architecture.
Are you ready for the move? Key components of the plan you should have in place include:
- Identifying the workloads that can be feasibly moved to the cloud.
- Calculating the costs of the required cloud compute, storage, and networking resources.
- Determining how to meet availability and recovery objectives.
- Determining the appropriate migration models (lift and shift, refactoring, etc.) and tools.
- Setting data protection and security controls.
