Decoding Cloud Migration Options and Tradeoffs for OEMs

Migrating applications to the cloud is a complex process that requires careful planning.  You’ll need to re-architect and optimize your existing solution to run in a cloud environment.  And you’ll need a well-thought-out plan for transitioning your installed base to a secure, multi-tenant, cloud infrastructure.

As a first step, I’d encourage you to read a blog from Christian Verstraete, CTO for Hewlett Packard Enterprise's (HPE) Cloud Strategy Team.  The blog explains how you can use open source platforms like Docker to efficiently re-build your applications in the cloud.  It also provides considerations for moving your existing premises-based customers to the cloud. 

There are a variety of ways to transition an application in the cloud, from re-installing software, to cloning images, to migrating binaries.  Christian describes the advantages and tradeoffs of the various approaches and demystifies common cloud migration terms and concepts.

As you’re engineering your cloud-based environment, I’d also encourage you to consider pushing workloads and development environments to HPE Helion solutions. HPE’s cloud computing products and services can help you accelerate time-to-market and reduce development expenses. As always, by partnering with HPE you can stay focused on running your business, not bootstrapping a cloud services subsidiary.
