Five steps to the cloud – a multi-part blog on best practices for companies migrating to the Public Cloud

Barracuda has become one of the leading security vendors in both Microsoft Azure and Amazon Web Services – our security has made successful migrations possible for thousands of customers, ranging from SMB customers who’ve provisioned and deployed their entire cloud infrastructure from the marketplaces to Fortune 500 customers who’ve engaged top-tier consultants to migrate entire datacenters.

As different as these customers may be, and as varied as their applications and requirements often are, we see over and over again that customers who are successful with the cloud perform five key steps that ensure their infrastructures and practices are “cloud ready.”  We’d like to share these tips with our readership in a series of blogs on cloud migrations.

The five steps we’ll discuss are:

  1. Preparation
  2. Strategy
  3. Qualification
  4. Security
  5. Migrate and Build

And we hope these steps will help you in your quest to leverage the cloud:  it offers cost savings, tremendous flexibility, and easy management.  The trick, of course, is to leverage it properly.  Stay tuned for the balance of our series.
