Cloud migration is the process of moving workloads, data, applications, and processes to a cloud environment. In most cases, resources are moved from an on-premises data center to a cloud vendor. Sometimes the shift is from one cloud provider to another.
The reasons for this are manifold. Some companies hope for reduced costs, some for more flexibility, and sometimes regulations force you to use more than one cloud provider. Whatever the reason, simply moving to the cloud is not always a sufficient approach. By taking a few advanced steps, the benefits and promise of the cloud can be much better realized. But part of the truth is that moving to the cloud places new demands on the business and requires change. A change that is not always easy for companies with a long and successful IT history.
In this training, we would like to show you what the terms Cloud Native and Cloud Native Development actually mean and what consequences should be derived from them. We then point out the challenges of such a migration and give recommendations for a step-by-step approach. Of course, the security of the environments and data must not be ignored. We provide information on the security aspects that need to be taken into account. Finally, we formulate migration patterns that describe best practices gained in many migration projects.
