Key Excerpts from the Webinar are as follows:-
Cloud Computing can help you focus on your core business. It can help you to reduce the capital expense on support elements.
One of the things that is very important and should be kept in mind when you plan or when you discuss your cloud transformation is there could be some industry regulations that may have stringent restrictions in a certain country or locality as well, which is something one needs to be aware of and plan accordingly.
There are common migration drivers that trigger anybody to start off with the successful cloud migration journey.
The factors that make a business or an enterprise embark on a cloud transformation journey are:-
- Agility or Development Productivity
- Data Centre Consolidation
- Merger / Acquisitions or Divestitures
- Large scale compute-intensive workloads running on the data centers.
Every business is now looking at innovation. They want to make sure they adopt digital transformation. Such initiatives generally lead to the purchase of newer hardware because the existing data center will definitely need an expansion. That becomes a necessity. The quick turnaround expected for the infrastructure provisioning for the development and application team to start working and then deliver it to the business is also very key.
Industry leaders are building on AWS:-
- Businesses of all sizes from different industries have been using AWS for quite a long time
- Small to medium businesses
- Fortune 500
Netflix has been building their application, their workload natively in AWS, and keep reinventing their workload by leveraging the services as a differentiator for the end-users.
AWS has been positioned as a Leader in the Gartner Magic Quadrant for Cloud Infrastructure as a Service for 10 years.
What does it take to migrate to the cloud?
The journey starts off with an assessment and discovery phase. Then plan on what should move and in what order. The planning phase becomes important here. Once the planning is done, migration falls in place which is about picking the best-fit path and lastly, optimizing the operations continually for expenses, security, and performance.
