What is cloud migration?
Cloud migration is the process of relocating an organization’s data, applications, and workloads to a cloud infrastructure. Your organization may choose to relocate all of its computing assets to a cloud; however, in most cases, some applications and services still remain on-premise.
Migration may involve one or more clouds. Some clouds are public, whereby services are delivered over the public internet, and some clouds are private, consisting of secure cloud infrastructure available to only a specific organization. Organizations commonly use several clouds, both public and private, in a hybrid cloud environment that also includes on-premise computing assets.
