With today’s technological environment, moving your database to the Cloud makes perfect sense. The advantages of the Cloud are many compared to old-school on-premises data centers. With the Cloud, you don’t have to worry about keeping IT staff and paying for exorbitant data packages which you may or may not use. With the Cloud, you only pay for what you actually use or incur with your service on a month-to-month basis. Frequent backups and minimal downtime are also part of what you get with the Cloud.
Migrating to Amazon Web Services (AWS) from a Data Center is easy and pain-free once you figure out which strategy to implement. You also have to select which AWS that you’re migrating to and devise which migration strategy to go with. Once you have your backup and recovery plans put into place, you’re all set!
