How to Build A Cloud Migration That’s Right for Your Business
How to build a cloud migration plan that’s right for your business.

Either your company is in the process of moving to the cloud or will be in short order. This truth can be an opportunity to unlock all those dreamed-about cloud benefits, or it can lead you into the cloud-washing trap so many companies get stuck in.

How Much Cloud Do I Really Need?
If you’re thinking about making the switch to the cloud—or if you’re already there and find yourself receiving larger bills than you expected—here’s what you need to be thinking about.
We see it all the time: A company with 50 servers moves to the cloud by creating 50 instances—one for each physical server. The thinking goes that if I’m using this much physical infrastructure, I’ll need this much cloud infrastructure. Simply convert servers to instances, and just like that, I’ve moved to the cloud. It’s a logical approach, but it’s wrong.
The Technology Behind ServerCentral DRaaS
ServerCentral provides turn-key DRaaS for virtual environments.
While virtualization has been a game-changing technology, most organizations have yet to realize the benefits of this transition. The optimization of IT processes for these environments, including security, compliance, and business continuity/disaster recovery (BC/DR), continue to lag behind. To date, BC/DR has been the most difficult. There haven’t been any virtual-ready, easily adoptable remote replication solutions. Until now.
