Cloud Migration

Definition - What does Cloud Migration mean?

Cloud migration is the process of partially or completely deploying an organization's digital assets, services, IT resources or applications to the cloud. The migrated assets are accessible behind the cloud's firewall.

Cloud migration is also known as business process outsourcing (BPO), which may entail migrating a total organizational infrastructure, where computing, storage, software and platform services are transferred to the cloud for access.

Techopedia explains Cloud Migration

Cloud computing is attractive to many organizations due to its scalability, ease of management and low costs. Cloud migration facilitates the adoption of flexible cloud computing.

An organization's cloud migration process often involves merging an on-site IT infrastructure with a hybrid cloud solution, which may be accessed over the Internet for a fee. Hybrid cloud solutions transition between one or more cloud providers and usually provide on-demand and provisioned server space, applications and services.

Cloud migration is critical for achieving real-time and updated performance and efficiency. Thus, cloud migration requires careful analysis, planning and execution to ensure the cloud solution's compatibility with organizational requirements.
