Why Moving to the Cloud? | Video Blog

Cloud-native projects demonstrate long-term resilience and are constantly growing while easily adapting to market needs. To compete fairly, companies that weren’t born in a cloud environment need to add cloud services to their expertise. 

Today, moving services to the cloud is a must for digital transformation. Due to the virtual nature of the cloud, network businesses become more elastic and scalable if the environment facilities are correctly used.  

Customer demand for higher internet speed is anticipating technology connectivities that will become a substantial revenue for CSPs. How to monetizing 5G? Learn 4 strategies for the future.

Developing in the Heights

From a development point of view, moving services to the cloud entails several advantages. The top ones are:

  • New features and bug fixing are available as they are continuously deployed.
  • The possibility of managing everything from one place.
  • Updating components is much easier. You move towards continuous delivery, where every successful build triggers an update, without downtime for the customer. 
  • Infrastructure management is gone, as the cloud provider does that for you. It implies not only hardware, but also OS updates, new versions of components, and security updates.

Preparing the Field

There are many pre-production processes to consider before the migration. The big cloud move is not just adopting new technology. Entire teams need to learn and plan, as the technology adoption demands a skilled approach before, during, and after the change. Though features may vary among cloud providers, the main insights to manage are:

  • Virtual machines
  • Kubernetes cluster
  • Databases
  • Logging stack (Elasticsearch – Logstash – Kibana)
  • VPNs
  • DNSs
  • Load balancers

TIP! Consider your cloud provider very carefully since it supplies most of the resources to develop the project, from the set up of the pilot test to the definitive intern processes.

Is it Safe?

Security is a matter of deep concern among customers. As they are exposed to the internet, there are security risks, mostly related to weak configurations or outdated systems. Service providers must treat cloud security risks as a shared responsibility.

Some tools can help to achieve a secure environment, and they MUST be used to meet the standards. Cloud access security brokers (CASBs), for example, is software that sits between users and apps to make some features visible, such as usage, data protection, and governance. It allows us to monitor all activity and enforce security policies.

Above all, moving to the cloud allow for services that used to take long sales cycles and long adopting processes to be available at a click. 

At Intraway, we have been working on moving our products to the cloud. We began with Symphonica, our service orchestrator, and now we are working on the rest of the solutions of our portfolio. We did it very fast, and nowadays we have customers using such instances.
