There are many reasons why organizations migrate from on-premises data centers to the cloud. First, by doing so, you eliminate the need to buy expensive infrastructure, such as servers, storage appliances, and networking equipment. Next, is automation—where the resources you need to run applications and VMs can scale up or down on demand. Then, of course, there are cost savings—not only CapEx on physical infrastructure, but because you only pay for the resources you actually consume in a cloud model.
In this ebook, you will learn about the value of moving an on-premises data center to the cloud, how you prepare a migration, how leading cloud vendors support migrations, and how to complete your first project on either Microsoft Azure or AWS.
