The big migration questions you need to ask—and answer Deciding what to migrate, what to modernize, and what to retain on-premises is part of enterprise IT infrastructure management. When a refresh cycle is up in your data center, there are two very different types of competing motions you need to evaluate. While they may appear to be independent, they’re also kind of not, so it can be tricky to decide which one to execute—or even to execute both—and to do so smoothly. The first migration motion is the routine refresh cycle—the process of evaluating your data center’s hardware and software as ..read more

Does Cloud Have a Storage Problem?

by Jon Cyr

Too often, when organizations migrate workloads to the cloud or build new cloud-native applications, they don’t really think about storage. The cloud provider takes care of all that, right? Well, yes and no. There are cost implications to cloud storage that many don’t adequately anticipate—until they get the bill, that is. According to our latest research, cloud storage costs are rising across the board, and over half of companies are seeing their storage spend grow faster than their overall cloud costs. Cloud storage costs are a growing problem Our survey found that cloud storage costs are gr ..read more

It’s Time To Stop Pitting On Prem and Cloud Against Each Other

Most sentences that include both on premises and cloud usually put the word “or” between them, or perhaps “vs.” But most enterprises operate in the world of “and.” In other words, they have workloads on premises and in the cloud—and that little three-letter word makes a world of difference. First, consider where we are right now. According to The State of Multi-Cloud Management survey report that Virtana published earlier this year, 98% of respondents have workloads running in the public cloud. Of course, while nearly all organizations have workloads in the public cloud, it doesn’t follow that ..read more

The Current State of Workload Portability

Have you considered cloud portability, i.e., the ability to easily move workloads between on-premises systems and across multiple cloud service providers (CSPs)? The idea is that workloads should run in the environment that delivers the most value for your organization, but as that “optimal” environment can change over time, you need to be able to move your workloads accordingly. The value of portability is understood but not yet realized According to our recent State of Multi-Cloud Management survey, only 4% of respondents said that they don’t see cloud portability as viable for their busines ..read more

Digital transformation, no matter what form it takes within your organization, is a high-stakes initiative to deliver strategic impact to the business. The cloud is a pivotal enabler to that effort. But there’s a flip side—challenges related to migrating and managing workloads in the cloud can have a negative impact on the success of your transformation efforts. According to our recent State of Multi-Cloud Management survey, this is a very real problem that enterprises are struggling with. In fact, 73% of respondents stated that siloed efforts are limiting their ability to realize the full pot ..read more

4 Signs You Have a Cloud Migration Planning Problem

Cloud migration is a complex process, and the more up-front planning you put into it, the more likely you’ll be able to avoid challenges and setbacks during execution. And yet, challenges and setbacks seem to be the norm, not the exception, with almost three-quarters (72%) of those surveyed stating that they’ve run into problems so big they were forced to move migrated applications back on premises or jump into firefighting mode to figure out how to fix them quickly. The thing is, all of those problems are completely avoidable—if you have the right planning capabilities. Here are 5 warning sig ..read more

5 Cloud Migration Planning Tool Misconceptions

by Ricardo Negrete
2y ago
By now, most of us know that migrating workloads to the cloud isn’t like simply moving software from one server to another—especially in a complex enterprise infrastructure with many interdependent services and components. There are a lot of things that can go wrong: technical public cloud provisioning issues, security and compliance challenges, lack of cloud skills, wrong public cloud service provider (CSP) selection, unexpected costs, and more. The good news, however, is that all of these issues can be significantly minimized, if not entirely eliminated, with better migration planning that l ..read more

Cloud Governance: What It Is and Why You Need It

by Mark Heslop

Cloud cost management vs. cloud governance Every company exerts some level of effort to manage costs, performance, and risk in their hybrid cloud environment. But to ensure that those activities are performed consistently and efficiently across the board, you need a framework of policies, processes, controls, and tracking. In other words, you need cloud governance. What is cloud governance? Let’s start with the definition of corporate governance, which is the collection of mechanisms, processes, and relations used by various parties to control and to operate a corporation. Similarly, cloud gov ..read more

The Question Isn’t Whether You’re Overspending in the Cloud, It’s by How Much

Everyone is doing it. No, I am not talking about the latest Tik Tok challenge… The thing that everybody is doing—every company, that is—is that they are spending more money in the cloud than they need to. In fact, 82% of respondents in our own recent survey admitted that their organizations have incurred unnecessary cloud costs. Given enterprises’ overall lack of comprehensive visibility into cloud costs, I believe that a fair number of the remaining 18% haveneedlessly overspent, they are just not aware that this waste is happening. This is not mere speculation. Another survey we fielded asked ..read more
