Migrating Workloads

Everything You Need to Know About

Migrating workloads can be complex. To help you with best practices for workload migration, here’s what you need to keep in mind to keep you moving.

Making Sense of it All

What Migrating Workloads Really Means

Migrating a workload simply means that you’re moving data, assets, software, etc. from one location to another. For example, a previously on-premise workload can be moved into a cloud environment or migrated between physical locations.

Cloud migrations in particular are proving to be enormously popular. The cloud migration service market grew almost 32 percent in 2018, reaching a valuation of $72.4 billion in the year. A Forrester analyst has also found that 69 percent of companies in Europe and North America are migrating workloads to cloud environments.


What Moves You?

Good Candidates for Migration

Just about any workload can be migrated, so long as its assets and components are currently in definable locations. Not all workloads may be good candidates for a move, but the best include:

  • Storage, backup and archiving data
  • Workloads or applications that are loosely coupled
  • Multi-tiered applications
  • Applications that have been architected to scale
  • Workloads that have variable utilization or are bursty in nature
