Cloud Migration Metrics: Our Guide
Navigating the world of cloud migration can often feel like a daunting task. In our freshly updated report, we delve into the most crucial cloud migration metrics you absolutely need to know. From cost and time-efficiency to performance assessment, this comprehensive guide will effectively pave your pathway to successful cloud strategies.
Cloud Migration Metrics
The amount of time the system is unavailable during the migration process. This metric is critical to ensure minimal disruption to users and services.
The costs associated with moving applications, data, and infrastructure to the cloud, including expenses such as labor, tools, and consulting services.
Time To Migrate
The duration of the entire migration process, from planning to completion. This metric helps in tracking the efficiency of the migration team and progress of the project.
Re-Hosting / Re-Platforming Frequency
The number of applications requiring re-hosting or re- platforming during migration, indicating cloud readiness in the application portfolio.
Google Chat’s strong file-sharing feature removes email chains and manual file sharing via external storage.
Resource Utilization Comparison
The comparison of resource utilization (CPU, memory, storage, and network) before and after migration, which can help in identifying areas of improvement and potential cost savings.
Service Level Agreement Compliance
The percentage of times the cloud provider meets their agreed- upon service levels after migration, which can indicate whether the chosen cloud provider is a reliable fit for your requirements.
Security And Compliance
Post-migration risk profile changes measure security and compliance in the cloud.
Cloud Resource Optimization
Resource optimization post-migration assesses cost and performance efficiency in the cloud.
Modification count during migration reveals the complexity of the process and optimization possibilities.
User Experience (UX) Impact
The change in user satisfaction and application usability after migration, which can be measured through user surveys and feedback, as well as application analytics.
Post-Migration Issues And Incidents
Post-migration issues and incidents indicate success, areas for improvement, and the need for better cloud management.
