• Cloud Migration

    • Accelerate cloud migration with Dell Technologies

    • The rise of Multicloud architecture has created significant challenges for cloud migration. With the ability to deploy workloads to the optimal public, private or edge cloud resource, enterprises can realize big benefits in application efficiency and cost savings. But migrating workloads to the cloud or between clouds can be an extremely complicated and time-consuming endeavor, adding considerable cost and complexity that mitigates many of the benefits of cloud computing services.

      Dell Technologies Cloud offers a solution – a suite of cloud infrastructure solutions powered by Dell Technologies that dramatically simplifies and accelerates cloud migration. With Dell Technologies, enterprises can reduce the cost and complexity of cloud migration, deploying and managing workloads with ease across public, private and edge cloud resources.

    • The challenge of cloud migration

    • As the cloud has evolved for more than 10 years, a great diversity of elastic cloud services has enabled enterprises to adopt business cloud solutions that are ideal for running specific workloads. By aligning the requirements of a workload with the needs of the business and the offerings of a certain cloud platform, IT teams can significantly increase performance while reducing costs.

      In addition to public cloud services, more enterprises are deploying workloads to private cloud infrastructure and to edge locations. Private clouds provide greater levels of security and control, while the decentralized processing of cloud edge computing can help to reduce costs and enable low-latency experiences on edge devices.

      While all of these cloud resources individually offer tremendous benefits, the task of managing them and migrating workloads between clouds has become onerous. Each platform has its own set of tools and processes, requiring administrators to toggle between management frameworks. And with no consistent management infrastructure, cloud migration can take months, adversely impacting productivity and hindering innovation.

      What’s needed is a solution that lets IT teams determine where a workload is best deployed by identifying cloud the best workloads for each cloud, and to easily migrate workloads between them using a common set of tools and consistent infrastructure. That’s why, when seeking to implement a true hybrid cloud infrastructure that simplifies cloud migration, more enterprises today choose solutions from Dell Technologies.

    • FAQs: What is Cloud migration?

    • What is Cloud migration?

      Cloud migration is the process of moving workloads from on-premises infrastructure to Cloud environments, or moving workloads between one Cloud environment to another. 

      What are the challenges of Cloud migration?

      Moving workloads between public, private and edge Clouds can be costly, time-consuming and risky. The major challenge of Cloud migration is the difficulty that IT teams experience when working with Cloud resources that have drastically different management frameworks, tools, SLAs and security issues. Without a consistent infrastructure between Clouds, the task of Cloud migration can take much longer and place the organization at greater risk. 

      How does Dell Technologies Cloud accelerate Cloud migration?

      Dell Technologies Cloud simplifies Cloud migration by providing IT teams with a consistent management experience and familiar tools, creating efficiencies and increasing comfort with tasks and reducing errors.
