There’s a common misconception that with cloud, a company can just swap its current dedicated infrastructure for a server in the cloud. And it’s going to be cheaper, just as fast, and easier to provision. That’s not necessarily true because the applications that were written for dedicated infrastructures are not necessarily written for cloud architectures to support. A company can’t assume that cloud computing architectures are going to replace everything in the next few years. More than likely, in order to leverage legacy environments and support security and compliance needs, companies will have a combination of environments ranging from in-house, to dedicated hosting, to cloud. A company needs to understand what its workload looks like today and what the demands of that workload are in the future.
