Here’s a very quick sneak preview of that transcript in which Mark offers advice to any businesses or individuals who are considering undertaking a cloud migration strategy.
Basically, there are two options.
“One is a shallow integration and this option means you’ll move your entire onsite application to the cloud, making limited changes to the servers. You essentially lift your applications and systems as is and move them to the cloud as one. You may hear this being referred to as a lift and shift.
And option two is a deep cloud integration and with this option you modify your applications during the process of migration to take full advantage of the key cloud capabilities on offer. This may be relatively simple or may involve a more sophisticated modification.
Then you need to decide if a single or multicloud solution is best.”
