When migrating to the cloud, there are some pretty major considerations that should be made. What kind of aspects of such a grand change are the most important?

Some of the most common reasons that are driving these moves to cloud are: “Get strategic and take IT out of the data center business, shift costs from capital to operating budgets, [and] minimize risk or improve agility and scalability.”

Do you fall into any of these categories? Are you concerned with the costs of the entire move, or just concerned with certain parts of what would be included?

Here are the 3 most important cloud migration costs that will most likely occur:

  • Simultaneous systems spending
  • Continued on-prem business continuity and disaster recovery (BCDR) spending until after the move
  • Potential need for assistance of an MSP that can manage the move

As yourself what, if anything, is holding you back from migrating to the cloud. This could be easier than you think and even less expensive.
