Cloud migration is the process of migrating applications, VMs, database either public, private or on-premise to cloud. Migrating your data from one cloud to another cloud sometimes leads you with messy steps. Say, for example, AWS cloud provides the services which lead to consumption and increased billing. The best option here is to migrate it to Alibaba cloud.
The general goal or benefit of any cloud migration is to host applications and data in the most effective IT environment possible, based on factors such as cost, performance and security.
For example, many organizations perform the migration of on-premises applications and data from their local data center to public cloud infrastructure to take advantage of benefits such as greater elasticity, self-service provisioning, redundancy and a flexible, pay-per-use model.
The Cloud Migration tool allows you to perform online migration. You can use the Cloud Migration tool to migrate a source server to an Alibaba Cloud instance to achieve unified resource deployment. Source servers can be IDC servers, virtual machines (VMs), cloud hosts on other platforms, or other types of servers that you want to migrate. User do not even require spending their time-wasting on migration processes.
Cloud Migration process
The first step towards a successful data migration process is the evaluation of businesses basic needs as well as its future capacity and use.
To understand it Let's take an example, say you have virtual machines running on AWS and you would like to calculate how much this infrastructure would cost in Alibaba. Doing this by accessing server by server review could take time.
A migration plan is incomplete without a backup plan. There is always a non-zero probability for errors to happen in a migration process, and damages are often irreversible. Schedule migration notify users if there is any down time expected during cut over.
Migration tool helps to analyze your infrastructure and show you in two minutes how much money you can save by migrating from Azure and On-premises VM's to Alibaba cloud.
