How to resolve cloud migration challenges in physical and virtual applications by Paul Miller:

Enterprise IT infrastructure largely predates the emergence of cloud computing as a viable choice for hosting mission-critical applications. Although large organizations are now showing real signs of adopting cloud computing as part of their IT estate, most cloud-based deployments still tend to be either for new and self-contained projects or to meet the needs of traditional development and testing functions.

Compatibility, interoperability, and performance concerns have kept IT administrators from being completely comfortable with the idea of moving their complex core applications to the cloud. And without a seamless application migration blueprint, the project can seem more of a headache – and risk – than it’s worth. This report will highlight for systems administrators, IT directors, cloud architects, and decision-makers at Software as a Service (SaaS) companies and Cloud Service providers, the different approaches they can take in moving existing applications to the cloud.

In the interest of clarity, it should be noted that I wrote this report in 2013.

Despite this blog post appearing, in 2017, under my byline, I am not currently associated with Gigaom or Knowingly.

Gigaom and Knowingly have every right to continue using the report. It is less clear that they have the right to publish blog posts that appear to be authored by me, when I no longer work with Gigaom and have never worked with Knowingly.

Having said all that, enjoy the report!
