1 Things to Consider Before Choosing Cloud Migration Services For Business ds-inc.com (609)

2 Things to Consider Before Choosing Cloud Migration Services For Business Dynamic Strategies engineers have assisted in several successful projects over the past four years. The engineers have been very helpful in dealing with all of these projects. Their dedication to successful implementations has been remarkable. In addition to technical expertise, the engineers were very cooperative with other vendors and customer staff. The Cloud has transformed the landscape of technology and how we access and share information more completely than any other technology has over the last two decades. Industry reports have shown cloudcomputing solutions for business does in fact increase business productivity, build a more collaborative work environment for employees, and can even lower your overall operating costs. For all of the benefits cloud migration services offers right along with the cloud, there are things any business must consider before going full-steam ahead to implement any sort of change. Project Manager, Siemens Inc

3 Cloud Migration Services for Business Security Let s face it, there s a certain risk to anything businesses do when it comes to the cloud, not the cloud, and so on. However, given how easy it is to send and receive data in the cloud or make changes to information stored in the cloud you would be foolish not to take cloud security seriously. Some of the biggest concerns when it comes to data security in the cloud revolve around not always being the one in control over who exactly has access to your information. By utilizing the cloud your business has the ability to store far larger, and more critical and sensitive data needed to run your company. Ensuring that only those that should have access to that information do requires careful planning and designing a thorough security infrastructure to ensure no one gets in and hijacks your company. If you skip that most basic requirement for migrating to the cloud you might as well roll out the red carpet for hackers to potentially put your company under.

4 Cloud Migration Services for Business Reliability Regardless of how your business plans to use the cloud, it is extremely important that your company s services, business applications, and network infrastructure remain up at all times. Any reputable cloud service provider should have certain safety nets in place to ensure your business isn t impacted by any potential disruptions within the cloud. These safety nets typically include redundancy of power, cooling systems, Internet connections, servers, security systems, storage, and even fire suppression systems. As a business owner you will also want to find out what kind of track record any particular cloud service provider has when it comes to overall uptime. Any quality cloud for business service provider should provide an SLA (Service Level Agreement) for all services. The industry standard SLA offerings are based on how many nines are included with a given percentage. The standard runs from a 99% to % uptime guarantee. Anything less than that and you re playing with fire as far as cloud migration services for business is concerned. Cloud Migration Services for Business Integration The rise of more robust APIs (Application Program Interfaces) has provided a means to easily

5 interconnect multiple applications in the cloud that simply wasn t possible with on-premises systems. However, just because there are more APIs out there that are more flexible and offer far greater functionality than what used to be available does not mean all of your business applications vital to YOUR business operations will be supported. If you have certain business applications that aren t supported by the cloud then it would not be wise to move your business to the cloud just yet, or at least not all of it. When it comes to certain applications or processes that your business can t do without and is not supported by the cloud, then you can either find a suitable alternative, attempt to do without it (not recommended), or stand pat until it is supported. One other thing to take into consideration regarding integration of business applications into the cloud is the fact your business may be using an application that is outdated. Moving to the cloud with that specific application likely means having to adopt the newest, or a newer, version and training yourself

6 and necessary staff on how to utilize it in a way that benefits your business. Ready to Migrate? Knowing what s at stake before deciding to dive headfirst into the cloud and having learned the different things to take into consideration, you may feel as if you are more than ready to make the switch. Dynamic Strategies offers cloud migration services for businesses that are designed to meet the needs of your company.
