We all know the benefits of Cloud: cost saving, scalability, evergreen features, etc. But often times I have heard from customers complaining that it’s cost them more to host their applications and it’s more complex to deploy and manage resources in the cloud then it did on-premises. When I assess the causes of that dissatisfaction, 99% of the time it is due to lack of a solid cloud roadmap to make the right decisions at each milestone of that journey to the cloud.
Here, I wanted to share a simple, easy to follow roadmap that can be utilized to avoid those pitfalls and have a smooth journey to the cloud. The following diagram is a high-level view of that roadmap. Please feel free to reach out if you have any questions or need any assistance with your current or future datacenter transformation initiative.
