With traditional enterprise apps moving to the cloud, what are the most common concerns that executives face?

  • Lift and shift: Traditional apps were designed for fast, ultra-reliable hardware. But lifting and shifting to cloud environments forced enterprises to choose between poor app performance or re-architecting apps for the cloud. Forced to choose, enterprises typically postponed or simply cancelled the movement of existing apps to the cloud.
  • Vendor lock-in: Many enterprises balk at the effort and expense to move data between cloud providers or back in-house.
  • Reliability: Businesses are concerned about the possibility of data loss when they see that the annual failure rate in cloud storage is 0.2%.
  • Difficulty in migration: Moving data and applications to the cloud can be slow, especially when it is a manual process.

It reduces lift-and-shift

Today it's difficult to move traditional enterprise apps and their data to the cloud. Data mobility frees enterprise apps from the confines of traditional hosted data centres and allows them to quickly on-ramp to the cloud and back as required. It makes moving existing applications much easier and less risky without the need to re-write or re-architect them.

Don't let your data become trapped

Data is the greatest source of vendor lock-in in the cloud. Once data is stored with one cloud provider, it is very difficult and expensive to move it anywhere else. Data becomes trapped because you can only use or access it without the confines of that cloud provider.

Easy data mobility allows you to move and/or use data among multiple cloud providers, inlcuding your own data centre or private cloud.

Not only does this eliminate lock-in, but easy mobility enables enterprises to take advantage of the resources across multiple clouds—optimising for price, availability, or location.

Multi-cloud solutions are the way to go

Enterprises are moving towards easy-to-use, multi-cloud solutions that avoid vendor lock-in and provide an easy cloud on-ramp.

These enterprise-grade solutions provide cloud storage that enables you to use your choice of multiple cloud providers without the need to migrate data. They also allow you to easily move data to and from your data centre and the cloud.

This type of cloud storage is as easy to use and more reliable as native cloud storage—with all the functionality you need to run your enterprise applications.
