Migrating IBM Cloud data

Today, every information technology (IT) business wants to reap the benefits of moving its workload to the cloud. But as we all know, not everything is suited for cloud migration. In order to assess whether it’s beneficial to move to a given workload to the cloud, workload analysis is vital. Two common questions faced by business and IT architects are:

  • What principles should I consider when determining what workloads are best suited for cloud?
  • What is the best way to measure the criteria with minimal effort and impact on business?

Assessing workloads and aligning them to an appropriate cloud type (private, hybrid or public) and a relevant delivery model (infrastructure as a service, platform as a service or software as a service) is a pivotal step in cloud migration strategy that can ultimately determine the success of that strategy. If a comprehensive workload assessment is not completed, then migrating a workload to cloud could prove to be a hassle that may end in migration project failure and unhappy customers.

Many enterprise-level IT architectures consist of a number of different technologies, layers that have been added on over time to increase functionality of systems. This results in large and complex systems that are difficult to manage and assess for cloud suitability. Therefore, an attentive and effective workload assessment outline is required so that you can simplify and streamline the analysis. Without the right methodology, it can be difficult to know where to start. The larger the workload, the more complex and important it becomes to order the tasks.
