SlideShare: Why Cloud Migrations Fail – Learn the Keys to Cloud Success

Many cloud migration and cloud first strategies fail to live up to expectations. The problem is organizations spend too much time on micro issues like product selection and not enough time on big picture items like the cloud strategy’s foundation. In our on demand webinar, Storage Switzerland and SoftNAS discuss the problems these different cloud projects create, and how to create a foundation for your cloud strategy that guarantees success.


Most cloud products are point solutions designed to solve a specific problem. There are products to back up to the cloud, products to migrate data to the cloud and products to run applications natively in the cloud. Each of these products run independently of each other and it often takes more than one of them to meet all the organization’s needs, making the organization’s journey to the cloud more complicated and expensive than it needs to be.

The key to a successful cloud strategy is the foundation. Organizations need to consider using a cloud data fabric that allows any application, on-premises or cloud-native, to seamless interoperate with cloud compute, multiple cloud storage types and even multiple clouds.

In this webinar, Storage Switzerland and SoftNAS explain the shortcomings of a product focused strategy and how a cloud data fabric paves the way for, not only a successful cloud project; but also, full utilization of cloud resources for maximum return on investment.

All attendees receive a copy of Storage Switzerland’s latest eBook “Developing a Holistic Cloud Strategy“.
