What is Cloud Migration?
The question is no longer when, but how companies should migrate to the cloud. Fully 96% of companies are using the cloud today and 81% have a multi-cloud strategy.
Yet the transition to cloud can present multiple challenges for any organization. Cloud-native architectures, which are increasingly portable, containerized, and distributed, make application migrations complex and difficult to manage. Incomplete migration planning makes application components difficult to identify leading to delays, overprovisioning, unexpected performance issues, and ultimately poor end-user experiences. And, once you have completed your cloud migration, you will still need to monitor the digital performance to ensure that it is the same or even better than the on-premise experience.
Riverbed solutions can help you speed your migration to the cloud by keeping network and application performance consistently high and improving productivity by delivering a better end-user experience.
Understanding before and after performance Migrating on-premises applications to public cloud can be difficult. Performance can be negatively affected by differences in the infrastructure stack and insufficient network design, as well as changes to latencies between application tiers.
Riverbed solutions provide complete lifecycle support and help you identify hidden risks and constraints that can lead to performance issues, unexpected delays and unplanned costs by: • Establishing network baseline and providing survivability analysis • Projecting traffic patterns and determining latency for mission-critical apps before migration • Mapping application dependencies • Using quantitative analysis to predict post-migration performance • Modeling application behavior on the network
Our suite of performance management tools for applications and networks provides the insights that are central to this cloud migration planning phase.
