The cloud offers many benefits to businesses who decide to host their applications there: like speed, scalability, and cost savings. Unfortunately, cloud migrations are not always as easy as we'd like them to be.
Depending a wide variety of factors, like data types, security, level of usage, and compliance requirements, migrating business-critical applications to a cloud environment can be a huge undertaking.
That's where Sysgain comes in.
Sysgain specializes in helping businesses migrate their critical applications, like Windows Server, to reliable cloud platforms like Amazon Web Services (AWS).
In the video below, Parthu Kishen (VP of Engineering) explains this service in more detail, using the Windows Server 2003 end-of-life issue as a real example:
"I think it's fair to say that we are in a cloud computing era. The questions from customers these days are... 'what applications do we move to the cloud?' rather than 'why or whether we should move to the cloud.'" - Parthu Kishen
So, is migrating to the cloud right for you, and your business?
The truth is, it all depends (as usual).
As an experienced cloud solutions provider, we can say with certainty that: yes, the cloud does offer serious value to organizations who decide to migrate certain business applications. However, depending on the size of your organization, your challenges, your industry, your infrastructure and more, certain applications or workloads would work better on the cloud than others. Understanding these factors and identifying areas of opportunity are the keys to delivering high value with the cloud.
But, as stated previously, this can be a huge undertaking for many organizations. Thankfully, there are many resources out there to help you understand your options and decide how best to utilize cloud computing and cloud migrations. Including:
- Videos and tutorials (Like this great intro video from AWS!)
- Blog Posts (Microsoft has a pretty informative post, here.)
- Test Drives (Free demos of enterprise cloud applications! Check out Sysgain's here.)
- and even FREE consultations!
There's a lot of great information available out there, but sometimes the easiest and most time-efficient option is to ask a professional.
For example, Sysgain offers free consultations and demos to any people who are interested in learning more about how their organization can use the cloud. All you need to do is send us a message via our website.
