Breaking down common cloud hurdles for companies

Moving from on-premises to the cloud

  • Scalability challenge: it’s hard to predict cloud usage needs, which leads to over or underprovisioning
  • Lack of in-house expertise
  • Legacy infrastructure challenges
  • Data migration costs adding to the overall transition

Moving from self-managed cloud to a fully-managed cloud service

  • Potential high upfront costs from the provider
  • Unclear migration path that leads to possible over or underprovisioning of services
  • Difficulty in managing multiple vendors
  • Uncertainty with migration to a new managed service provider

Moving from one fully-managed cloud provider to another

  • Potential vendor lock-in
  • Data Migration costs/ unclear migration compatibility
  • Possible downtime during the migration process
  • Hidden fees from different vendors
  • Different pricing models and SLA/support workflows
