Migrating workloads to public cloud

Cloud adoption and migrations have continued to accelerate over the years. According to Flexera’s 2021 State of the Cloud report, 31% of respondents spend at least $12,000,000 per year on public cloud, which is up from 16% in the same survey in 2020. Additionally, enterprises already run about 47% of their workloads and store 44% of their data in the public cloud. Organizations have come a long way, but we still have at least half way to go to full migration to the public cloud. 
As the public cloud becomes a multi-billion dollar business and the IaaS market share of computing continues to grow, enterprises leverage the public cloud more and more each year. But even though self-provisioning of new workloads in public clouds is simple, migrating existing services to the cloud requires more preparation. A common perception is that migrating existing workloads to the public cloud, especially those with a lot of data, is complex, time consuming and risky. With the right planning, however, enterprise IT organizations can rapidly establish good migration practices to accelerate migrations and lower risk. Plus, migration technology is evolving quickly to support the enterprise.
