To some, the term cloud may seem daunting and ambiguous but actually, it’s a term used to really describe, “The internet”. Simply put, cloud computing is taking services, also known as ‘cloud services’ and moving them beyond a firewall to a shared structure. This means that any application or services are now accessible via the Internet and many people can use it at once. For example, take Google Docs: Imagine many users using this same document to add information and communicate; and one computer crashes while on that document, nothing happens!
Cloud migration is the method in which we move a business into the cloud. Cloud migration, simply put, is like physically moving your furniture to a new home, except here it involves moving data, applications, and IT processes, into a new home (The Cloud).
