    ICYMI: Reducing the Risk of Your Cloud Migration

    ICYMI: Reducing the Risk of Your Cloud Migration

    The scheduling of a cloud migration is a complex undertaking that should be thought and planned in advance.
    But in order for a migration to be successful, it’s important that you limit your risk as much as possible during the migration itself, so that unforeseen problems don’t show up and cause your migration to go sideways, fail outright, or result in unexpected outages that negatively impact your business.

    ICYMI: Avoid Downtime When Migrating Data to the Cloud

    ICYMI: Avoid Downtime When Migrating Data to the Cloud

    Moving your data is one of the trickiest parts of a cloud migration. During the migration, the location of your data can have a significant impact on the performance of your application. During the data transfer, keeping the data intact, in sync, and self-consistent requires either tight correlation or—worse—application downtime.
    Moving your data and the applications that utilize the data at the same time is necessary to keep your application performance acceptable. Deciding how and when to migrate your data relative to your services, though, is a complex question. Often companies will rely on the expertise of a migration architect, which is a role that can greatly contribute to the success of any cloud migration.
    Whether you have an on-staff cloud architect or not, there are three primary strategies for migrating application data to the cloud.

Like having an expert in your ear

This podcast contains some essential content for anyone working in or toward modernizing their applications in the cloud. Lee covers the topics that, after you listen to him, you'll wonder why you aren’t already doing them. Lee dives into concepts that every decision maker needs and explains them throughly.

One big note, you may know Lee by his book: Architecting for Scale. I’ve read that book (highly recommended) and a lot of the concepts in his book are topics covered in this podcast. So, if you don’t want to read the book, this is a perfect way to consume that knowledge. It was a little more personal listening to Lee describe best practices and the examples he uses to explain his points than reading it. Either way, it’s great content.
