Service Migration

Definition - What does Service Migration mean?

Service migration is a concept used in cloud computing implementation models that ensures that an individual or organization can easily shift between different cloud vendors without encountering implementation, integration, compatibility and interoperability issues.

Service migration is a technique by which an application, infrastructure or any cloud-hosted applications or services are prevented from being locked into a single vendor. Service migration also defines the process and framework by which these applications can be deployed on another cloud vendor or supported private cloud architecture.
