Once all the security pieces are in place, cloud deployments can begin. In nearly all cases, we’ve seen customers migrating gradually. They do a proof-of-concept, then migrate their first workload. If they’ve followed the steps in our earlier blogs, this first migration is a success, it is secure, and it performs as expected.
Companies then begin more significant migrations. Using the framework reference architecture they’re already created for the first migration, virtually any VM that’s running on-premises is a candidate for deployment in the cloud. To oversimplify things, the cloud can be thought of as a way to run VMs on someone else’s hardware.
