Fremont, CA: Digitalization has taken every industry by storm. Businesses are investing large amounts in replacing their legacy systems and creating digital records. Disruptive technologies have provided new insights into the business that was once imagined impossible. These technologies have taken over every form of business, forcing managers to adopt the latest technologies to stay abreast. The highly competitive nature of each industry has forced business owners to either adapt to the changing times or perish. Cloud infrastructure is one such technology that has gained significant traction over the last few years. Companies are rapidly trying to host their applications and services on Cloud for high security, to function in terms of pay per use model and flexibility.
Cloud has emerged as the perfect alternative to physical on-premise servers. The future of business will be serverless as more and more companies adopt this model. Cloud migration is the process of moving data and applications from on-premise servers to a cloud infrastructure. This transition from legacy infrastructure to a cloud platform could be either a full transition or partial. Here are a few types of cloud migration.
Lift and Shift
This is a fruitful approach for migrating applications and data to the cloud infrastructure without making any modifications or redesigning the app. The lift and shift model is preferred by businesses to sustain and protect their business and process workflows and data present in the on-premises infrastructure. It helps organizations take steps towards modernizing IT solutions and creating adaptable architecture on Cloud.
Rebuilding is a cloud migration model that requires an application code to be re-written to make it compatible with the cloud environment. However, if making the application cloud-ready becomes too complicated, it will have to be rebuilt from scratch.
The replacement model is best suited when an application does not merely comply with the cloud environment and cannot be rebuilt or modified architecturally. In such cases, Software as a Service (SaaS) offers all the essential features of the application hosted minus the infrastructure overhead costs, development, or management processes.
