Where is your company in relation to the cloud? How about a hybrid cloud solution? Considering a partial migration or a full migration? What's the upside? The downside? At Oakwood, we know that a hybrid cloud approach is a good starting point on your way to a full, public cloud plan. Many of our clients have seen the benefits of beginning with a model like this.
Hybrid Cloud Starting Point
One idea is to think about migrating just your workloads and disaster recovery to the cloud. Information technology employees at companies, big and small, are familiar with this idea as a starting point. A segment of our clients has seen success starting slowly.
What About Cost?
What costs savings will you see? It's a key reason that companies see success when migrating to a hybrid cloud model. Spend less money. See more benefits. Think about the costs your incur related to server leasing and long-term contractual renewals. Costs for team members to manage your on-premise data environments. Costs for software upgrades. Cloud migration helps to eliminate the worry of many, if not all, of these expenses. It can be a tough decision, however, companies who have made the move have greater peace of mind and confidence their decision was the right one.
