Cloud Migration Experience
When asked about the migration experience, Andy said “from a practical point of view, no one noticed honestly.”
“The guys/girls using it every day, I honestly don’t think they even know. Life just kinda carried on.”
We know that this is often a worry a lot of business owners often think about when migrating to the cloud. They think they will have to overhaul their workflows that it will take too much of their time.
Yes, there may be some behavioural change, but for the most part, if the migration is done properly, most users will not notice it.
From a practical point of view, no one noticed. It’s more from a risk management point of view. We’ve tidied up big holes in our security and backup systems.Andy Corbett, Commercial Manager
4 Reasons Why Migrating to the Cloud Is a No Brainer
The accounting treatment of the operating cost is slightly better on our balance sheets. Instead of outright capital expenditure, switching to the cloud gives you subscription costs which you pay out monthly in smaller amounts. This frees up your cash flow for better things.
No sense of having our own data center
The other reason why we chose the cloud is we want to get the gear off site. Especially last year, with the idea that everyone is working out of the office, why do we need to run our own data centre?
Cloud is scalable
We’re constantly running out of physical space as we grow. Why constrain ourselves with servers in the office.
Technology is constantly changing
On-premise servers have to be maintained. With the cloud, we don’t have to think too much about it. It’s “one less thing to worry about really.”
The Cloud Isn’t Just for Big Businesses
Using the cloud has a lot of advantages. Unless you’ve got the knowledge and technical skills to maintain servers properly and troubleshoot them when something goes wrong, using the cloud for your business is a no brainer.
