Migrating to the Public Cloud

Click through for six best practices organizations should consider before migrating systems to the cloud, as identified by HotLink.

The public cloud beckons. Gartner says that nearly half of large enterprises will have hybrid cloud deployments by the end of 2017. That significant growth stems from the clear business case for public cloud adoption. Enterprises want more cost-effective migration, disaster recovery and business continuity options. The public cloud delivers with a low cost, pay-as-you-go model. Elasticity helps IT teams manage unpredictable application needs. Teams can set their budgets on time and still adapt to shifting resource demands thanks to the public cloud's economic advantages.    

However, companies are still figuring out how to begin incorporating public cloud services into existing IT operations. High-priority considerations early in the process include: streamlining the migration process, reducing risk wherever possible and targeting early wins. These should be a CIO's top concerns as the process gets underway.

In this slideshow, HotLink, a cloud solution provider, highlights six best practices to help IT leaders stay focused and see their businesses through a successful cloud migration.
