Deploy Applications to the Cloud

Posted by Danica Esteban on Jun 20, 2022 8:15:00 AM

There are multiple cloud deployment options for provisioning IT infrastructure and deploying applications to the cloud. Choosing the right deployment model requires you to understand your source environment, where you want to move it, and how you would like to implement the actual migration. Whether you want to deploy it in a private, public, or hybrid cloud, you need to plan it thoroughly and execute it with great precision. Else, you're at risk of performance instability, corrupting an entire database, and altogether losing customer trust.

The Role of Application Discovery in Cloud Migration

Most organizations understand the importance of having a concrete plan and strategy when migrating to the cloud. In the article we've published recently, we've recommended starting your cloud migration journey by setting business objectives and establishing key performance indicators (KPIs). These two play a significant role in defining your cloud migration success.

For this very reason, we've introduced the Discover stage as part of the cloud migration strategy we've been utilizing in IT-Conductor.

How to Secure Your Cloud Environment?

Security in any cloud environment is a shared responsibility between the organization and the cloud provider. The distribution of responsibilities between the two would depend on the cloud model implemented (i.e. IaaS, PaaS, SaaS), services in use, and applicable security compliance requirements.

Defining cloud migration success starts with setting business objectives and establishing key performance indicators (KPIs) that should meet what the business aims to achieve. In agile, think of business objectives as the Definition of Done where deliverables are discussed with the teams involved to build a common understanding of work completion. On the other hand, think of KPIs as acceptance criteria that need to be satisfied before a particular deliverable can be considered complete.
