How to build a comprehensive cloud migration strategy with VMware HCX
Over the past few years, the hype surrounding cloud services has prompted many organizations to consider a transition from on-premises data centers to cloud-based infrastructures. The main reasons for such transitions are to boost IT agility, speed up time to market, avoid capital investments, lower TCO, and increase redundancy and disaster recovery capabilities.
There is much to gain, but at the same time, migrating to a cloud environment can be a highly complex project, with many pitfalls and hurdles to overcome.
Enterprises must face the challenges of zero-downtime migration for business-critical applications, possible performance degradation during the transition period, bandwidth hiccups while pushing petabytes of data to the cloud, and advanced network issues, including the need to re-IP workloads.
