Many companies are moving their IT infrastructure to the cloud because of various reasons like minimized IT requirements, physical data storage, cost, accessibility, quick deployments, consolidation, controllability, increased productivity, efficiency, and security. Nearly 60 percent of the corporate data are stored in the cloud by the end of the year 2022. There are several ways to migrate to the cloud, including Re-Factor/Re-Architect, Re-Host, and Re-Platform. Comparable to switching databases and altering the data schema is Re-Factor. Refactoring the data model and switching from Oracle to Redshift are two examples. Re-Host is similar to taking the data and copying it onto the cloud because it is a Lift and Shift migration. For smaller datasets, it works well. Similar to switching from Oracle to Snowflake, Re-Platform is moving to the new database that is hosted in the cloud.
To migrate to the cloud, we must select the right model. We are able to transfer both data and apps from on-premises to the public cloud. The hybrid cloud concept entails shifting some workloads to the cloud while leaving others on-premises. Comparable to moving on-premises applications and data to various public clouds is the multi-cloud model. Building a private cloud is similar to creating an on-site cloud computing infrastructure.
Data virtualization can be implemented with Denodo. A straightforward approach to cloud migration is provided by a logical data fabric made possible by data virtualization. It eliminates the necessity for cloud data replication. Your data architecture is made simpler, making the migration to the cloud quicker, less expensive, and resource-constrained. By separating the consuming application from changes in the back end and enabling IT to transfer data between systems without modifying the consuming application, data virtualization's decoupling and abstraction features ease the migration process. Both on-premises and cloud systems now share a similar access layer thanks to data virtualization. One virtual layer provides access to all the data. Regardless of the location or original format of the data, it also makes the merging of data simpler. It permits the creation of semantic models and gives all the data superior security settings.
Cloud computing allows for user-demand access from anywhere worldwide to a unique pool of computer data and networking resources. This includes services that can be functionally provisioned and released and, in addition, servers that can store data applications. Cloud computing offers three options for cloud deployment- public cloud, private cloud, and hybrid cloud.
The global cloud migration market is estimated to grow at a CAGR of ~28% by 2035. Moreover, in the year 2022, the market registered a revenue of approximately USD 10 billion.
To summarize, cloud migration is essential as firms strive to become more efficient- and- nimble in their processes. However, developing an AWS cloud migration strategy and working throughout the cloud migration processes necessitates the correct talents and tools.
