Don't Move Your Apps To The Cloud

Use The Cloud To Transform Them Instead

Why Read This Report

It has become conventional wisdom that leveraging cloud services will save you money. But that isn't universally true. To achieve these benefits, especially from cloud platforms (infrastructure-as-a-service and platform-as-a-service), your application must achieve high availability (HA) and performance on its own through its design and configuration. It will also need to activate the economies delivered by these platforms by scaling up and down incrementally, ideally automatically. Most applications running in your data center today don't fit these requirements and thus should not be moved to a cloud platform. This report explains the key differences in infrastructure-as-a-service and platform-as-a-service public services, how you can best match your applications to them, and why new code may be your best bridge for legacy applications.
