Home / Insights / Blog / Cloud Migration Checklist: Top 20 Considerations
July 3, 2020 - by Synoptek
Cloud Hosting is where businesses, customers, and technology blend. We would like to help you leverage the value of cloud hosting technology instead of building your own IT infrastructure for complex information technology scenarios, collaboration tools, and business systems.
After performing hundreds of cloud migrations, Synoptek can assist you in selecting the cloud hosting solutions that are “right-sized” for your business. Our Cloud Migration Checklist below will provide many of the items you need to consider when embarking on a cloud migration project or moving between cloud providers. Our Cloud Assessment Report will provide you the “hard data” measuring usage and performance parameters for every device and application.
Your “information architecture” mainly consists of various data assets and applications used to manage those assets in a number of ways. Try to imagine that you have to move all of those data assets and applications from your entire data center to another data center.
That’s what a migration to cloud computing is. Migrating data and applications from your on-premise computing infrastructure to someone else’s data center. Now you have a picture in your mind of how much needs to be done, and all the concerns around storage, performance, networking, security, privacy, and compliance.
What will your information architecture look like when you’ve completed your migration?
You may hear IT experts refer to this process as developing a “technology roadmap” between your current state and your desired future state. Without performing this exercise, you’ll likely create far more business process disruption than desired, resulting in a far more expensive transition.
Like any trip from one place to another, you need to start by knowing where you’re coming from, what you’re bringing with you, and where you’re going.
The very first thing on your checklist must be a comprehensive inventory of questions including:
