SAN JOSE, CA, UNITED STATES, December 18, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — A wide range of cloud migration and disaster recovery innovations have recently hit the market. With the wide variety of technologies and marketing messages, it is becoming increasingly more difficult to evaluate the myriad of product choices and make strategic purchasing decisions. George Symons, COO of Sureline Systems, an innovative leader in enterprise-class cloud migration and disaster recovery solutions explores five key questions customers should ask themselves when planning their cloud migration and disaster recovery projects slated for 2019.
1. Is security or ease-of-use more important when contemplating a migration strategy? In most cases, they should be equally important, but, with the recent rash of data breaches across all sectors and geographies, security should remain the prime consideration.
2. What is the impact of disappearing enterprise data centers having on cloud migration initiatives? Migration continues to be important as enterprises are modernizing their data centers with private clouds, as well as moving more workloads to public clouds.
3. What is the impact of the move toward greater adoption of SaaS having on migration and or DR strategies/initiatives? How is this changing the landscape and why has it become so prevalent? There are three options when moving to a public cloud. You can migrate the application and server as is; you can refactor the application to be cloud-aware; or you can move to a SaaS solution. Each of these has to be considered based on strategic questions and each one depends on the specific application. This is not a one size fits all.
4. What direct impacts on staff are important to consider when initiating a cloud migration strategy? Automation of offerings? Ease-of-use? Speed with which staff can implement? Migration is a project that requires staff time, so the more the actual movement and transformation can be automated, the easier it will be on staff resources. Planning is always important, but the staff should be utilized for that aspect rather than the repetitive tasks.
5. If, as economists are projecting, the tech sector continues to soften, what impact will this have on migration initiatives? Should companies re-prioritize their initiatives? The issue is not the tech sector, but rather enterprises across all industries. With the economy still hot, this is the time for enterprises to plan and execute to be in a position that their infrastructure is modern. This will lead to additional migration projects to both private and public clouds.
