IaaS, PaaS, SaaS, Storage, Hybrid etc. etc. are you confused? If you are, that’s ok. In this session I explore the different capabilities that are available to migrate on-prem workloads to the cloud. I discuss what workloads are more conducive to a cloud migration and how you can determine the ‘low hanging fruit’. I will walk you through a framework I developed to examine all the dependencies that you need to understand and evaluate before migrating to the cloud. I will also lead you through various migration options and architectures that are being commonly deployed in the cloud.
