What is a hybrid cloud migration? Hybrid cloud is a cloud computing environment that uses a mix of on-premises, private cloud and third-party, public cloud services with orchestration between the two platforms. This process of migrating applications, VMs, database either public, private or on-premise to cloud is called cloud migration.
The companies cannot solely rely on either private cloud network (due to lack of versatility) or public cloud network (companies are hesitant to put their sensitive intellectual processes on public cloud). Hence, the migration to hybrid cloud seems logical as it offers the best of both worlds.
Migrating your data from one cloud to another cloud sometimes leads you with messy steps. Say, for example, Azure cloud and on-premises VM's provides the services which lead to consumption and increased billing. The best option here is to migrate them to Alibaba Cloud instance.
Hybrid Cloud Migration
Alibaba Cloud offers highly reliable and secure hybrid cloud deployment solutions, with a focus on allaying organizations' concerns regarding availability, security and connectivity.
User can easily migrate their data, applications, VMs from Azure and On-premises VM's to Alibaba Cloud in just few easy steps with the help of migration feature. User do not even require spending their time-wasting on migration processes.
There are certain steps organizations should take before adopting a hybrid cloud. These include an assessment of existing software and applications to determine those ideally suited for public cloud deployment, and those that need to be kept on dedicated infrastructure. Businesses can start by moving a small part of their workload to the cloud and optimize along their way to full-scale deployment.
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 Lets take an example, say you have virtual machines running on Azure and On-premises VM's and you would like to calculate how much this infrastructure would cost in Alibaba for both at the same time. Doing this by accessing server by server review could take time.
The 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.
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.
