Cloud Migration Assistance
Data is the cornerstone of successful cloud application deployments. Your evaluation and planning process may highlight the physical limitations inherent to migrating data from on-premises locations into the cloud. We offers a suite of tools to help you move data via networks, roads and technology partners. Cloud migration is something your business can do itself, one way or another, with greater or lessor effort and required time. However, if you want to migrate to cloud for your business successfully, then cloud migration assistance should be your number one option.

Cloud Adoption Strategy
Core areas of focuses in this chapter, "The life cycle of your enterprise cloud adoptionstrategy," include:• Initial cloud planning
• Enterprise capabilities and cloud vision
• Target architecture and cloud enablers
• Gap analysis and transition planning
• Implementation planning
• The significance of service-oriented architecture (SOA)
• Cloud standards
Enterprise capabilities and cloud vision
It is essential that you understand your enterprise goals and objectives. You need this information so that you establish a realistic cloud adoptionstrategy, and just as with enterprise architecture (EA) you want alignment between your enterprise vision and your strategic vision for cloud adoptionso that activities and outcomes add value to your organization. Specifically, you want to understand your enterprise goals and objectives in the following areas:• New capabilities that the business needs to bring to the market in the next 12 months
• Services or applications currently constrained due to time to market needs
• Opportunities to preserve capital or avoidance of operating expense
• Requirements or needs to provide ubiquitous access to consumers, customers, or devices
• Needs for improved scalability
Factoring in your understanding of enterprise goals and needs into the formation of your cloud computing vision provides the business context to make cloud computing transformational for your business. That is, the business use of technology changes as technology related business risk is identified and managed; and IT queues get eliminated as a barrier for creating new business capabilities.
All of this requires you to plan for governing your cloud adoption strategyas it ensures appropriate development with proper controls for progression with business continuity, and upon execution governs implementations so that cloud projects are in alignment with your strategy. The introduction of any new technology or technology paradigm shift creates pressure on the organization. Previously, enterprise architecture may have evolved solely to address internal provided technology solutions, and now it extends to address unique aspects of cloud computing in improving agility, enabling new business models or simply preserving The cloud adoption strategy is meant to achieve three broad goals:• To help bring the supply of IT service into balance with the demand for those services; and
• To provide a consistent approach to managing the risks of cloud adoption,
• Prepare the IT workforce for cloud
Balance Supply with Demand
The demand for IT services is outstripping the available supply of those services. Digital service delivery is driving the need for increased capabilities and increased capacity. Cloud enhances the ability of IT professionals to meet the demands of the GC’s diverse portfolio of programs and projects. Through cloud adoption, IT supply and demand can be brought into balance.
Consistent Risk Management
Cloud continues on with risks similar to those faced in the current IT landscape, including span of control, security and privacy. This strategy describes how these risks will be managed consistently, while still allowing departments and agencies to exercise flexibility based on their risk tolerance.
Prepare the Workforce
The adoption rate of cloud services is directly correlated to the rate at which IT professionals can acquire cloud skills. Successful cloud adoption will depend on developing talent and acquiring professional IT credentials.
Private & Hybrid Cloud
Cloud computing comes in three forms: public clouds, private clouds, and hybrids clouds. Depending on the type of data you’re working with, you’ll want to compare public, private, and hybrid clouds in terms of the different levels of security and management required.
A private cloud is one in which the services and infrastructure are maintained on a private network. These clouds offer the greatest level of security and control, but they require the company to still purchase and maintain all the software and infrastructure, which reduces the cost savings. A private cloud is the obvious choice when • Your business is your data and your applications. Therefore, control and security are paramount.• Your business is part of an industry that must conform to strict security and data privacy issues.
• Your company is large enough to run a next generation cloud data center efficiently and effectively on its own.
A hybrid cloud includes a variety of public and privateoptions with multiple providers. By spreading things out over a hybrid cloud, you keep each aspect at your business in the most efficient environment possible. The downside is that you have to keep track of multiple different security platforms and ensure that all aspects of your business can communicate with each other. Here are a couple of situations where a hybrid environment is best.
Your company wants to use a SaaS application but is concerned about security. Your SaaS vendor can create a private cloud just for your company inside their firewall. They provide you with a virtual private network (VPN) for additional security.
Your company offers services that are tailored for different vertical markets. You can use a public cloud to interact with the clients but keep their data secured within a private cloud. Braingrid provides services for both private and hybrid clouds..
Cloud computing has the potential to deliver agile, flexible and cost-effective IT services. In the cloud-computing paradigm, the GC collaborates with the provider on many aspects of security and privacy and establishes a level of trust with the cloud provider. At the same time, GC departments and agencies that use cloud services remain accountable for the confidentiality, integrity and availability of IT services, as well as for related information that a cloud-service provider hosts. Departments and agencies will adopt a structured approach for managing risks that accounts for the integration of cloud services into their IT services to support their program objectives and outcomes.
Cloud computing security is the set of control-based technologies and policies designed to adhere to regulatory compliance rules and protect information, data applications and infrastructure associated with cloud computing use.
Cloud computing security processes should address the security controls the cloud provider will incorporate to maintain the customer's data security, privacy and compliance with necessary regulations. The processes will also likely include a business continuity and data backup plan in the case of a cloud security breach. Braingrid provides the best secure cloud environment for you..
