Determining what platform options there are to move to a software as a service-based model
The number one reason companies migrate to the cloud is to capitalize on better performance based on increased speed and agility. On top of this, companies are able to utilize a plethora of services like storage, compute, databases, data analytics, AI, and continuous integration.
Many companies consolidate their data centers in order to increase workforce productivity, modernize technology and digital transformation programs, reduce infrastructure sprawl, increase data security, and improve their bottom lines by reducing IT expenditures.

There are multiple types of cloud migrations for enterprises. Transferring data and applications from on-premise, local data centers to the public cloud is a common model.
Moving data from local, on-premise data centers to a private cloud is another option for enterprises.
Transferring applications and data from one cloud provider to another cloud is known as the cloud-to-cloud migration model.
The hybrid cloud model is a combination of keeping data and applications on-premise and also in a private and third-party public cloud. Hybrid clouds combine a public cloud and a private cloud by allowing data and applications to be shared between the two. Storcom can securely connect your company’s dedicated hosting environment to other data center locations and the private and public clouds of your choice, including Amazon Web Services, Microsoft Azure®, VMware® and Google Cloud Platform™. For the ultimate in hybrid/multi-cloud flexibility, let Storcom help build your hybrid cloud environment. We back our cloud services with 24x7x365 support.
Multi-cloud models are when organizations use more than one cloud vendor. This enables companies to have flexibility with their data and allows them to leverage the strengths of each cloud platform to suit their specific IT needs.
Lastly, an organization can choose to uncloud, decloud, or perform a reverse cloud migration by moving their data and applications off of the cloud and back into local, on-premise data centers.
Unfortunately, there isn’t a one-size-fits-all approach when migrating apps and data to the Cloud. Each company and their data, applications, infrastructure, and architecture are different. As a result, many organizations don’t know the proper steps to take and are ill-prepared when undertaking a cloud migration internally.

The hybrid cloud allows for maximized IT utility, resilience, and agility. Public and private clouds have different areas where they each excel, so companies are able to reap the benefits of each platform when using a hybrid cloud solution. Private clouds enable organizations to scale up and down based on demand, which often comes with a lower cost, and private cloud solutions offer superior security and control. Some companies prefer that their critical data is stored in a private cloud, and other data and applications can be stored in a public cloud to lower cost. When using a hybrid cloud, your company is able to find the most suitable use cases for your IT environment and your cloud experience and utility is not limited by an either/or decision.
Migration to a multi-cloud environment leverages multiple cloud platforms for different purposes. When migrating to a multi-cloud environment, it is very important to do a thorough analysis of your applications and your data to properly leverage each platform for its optimal usage. Storcom’s Cloud Enablement Roadmap™ can help plan your evolution to the multi-cloud environment.
With a hybrid cloud, organizations can custom-tailor which data they want to host in a public or private cloud, and also leverage a local data center(s).
Companies have several options to perform data transfers from local data centers to a public or private cloud which depends on the type of data being moved and how quickly the migration needs to be completed. A company can:
