The benefits of cloud computing are a no brainer—lower costs, greater flexibility, on-the-go productivity and more. Who wouldn’t want to leverage the cloud right away? But, before you make the leap, make sure you have the answers to the following questions.
Which cloud model will work best for my organization?
The cloud isn’t a one-size-fits-all solution. You’ve got options and you need to know which is best for you. Deciding between public, private or hybrid cloud comes down to the complexity of your applications and data, your IT budget and what industry-specific regulations you must comply with.
Which applications should I move first?
The best answer to this question is to prioritize. If you’re a small business, you should migrate applications that don’t require very low latency or high performance and availability such as email, messaging and file sharing.
How can I maximize performance and security?
Teaming up with a cloud provider will make this an easy task to check off of your list. Most major cloud providers are well-equipped with exceptional security measures at smaller cost than what most SMBs could afford to implement on their own.
