3 tips for successfully migrating data to the cloud

3 tips for successfully migrating data to the cloud

If your enterprise is ready to move data to the cloud, you need to think long and hard about how to migrate the right way.

The use of public cloud providers as hosts for big data or transactional data is the real killer use of public clouds. Consider how much enterprises spend on data management these days, which can be as high as 70 percent of IT spending. The use of public clouds can drastically reduce those expenditures.

But enterprises often underestimate the amount of work needed to do the data migration, as well as the amount of planning needed before doing the work. Many fail a few times before they succeed. You don’t want to be in that situation.

Here are three tips for avoiding that trap and doing it right:

First, consider the data volume early in the process. You cannot simply upload terabytes and petabytes to public clouds. You need to consider shipping physical drives to the cloud provider for the initial data loads. This is a huge headache and takes close coordination between you and the cloud provider, so start early and put a plan in place.;
