The biggest challenge any enterprise has to get over when migrating workloads to the cloud is SCALE! Large organizations have massive amounts of data; thousands of virtual machines and hundreds of terabytes of data. With this level of scale, migration to the cloud is much more than just copying data from a source site to a destination cloud.
There are four challenges to be considered while performing large scale migrations that enterprises need to overcome to establish a truly viable cloud strategy.
- The Data vs. Bandwidth Problem – high-speed network bandwidth is not enough
- The Manual Migration of Hundreds of Workloads – automation is imperative
- The “Start-All-Over” Problem – due to unreliable network connectivity
- Keeping Sites In-Sync – intelligent utilization of limited bandwidth
