Cloud and migration – what and why?

As we say, CloudOnMove is a unique migration tool that moves your workload to the cloud. But what does ‘cloud’ actually mean? Why do companies move to the cloud?

What is cloud computing?

To put it simply, cloud computing means storing and accessing data and programs over the Internet instead of your computer’s hard drive or local servers. In other words, cloud computing is the delivery of computing services—servers, storage, applications, databases, networking, software, and analytics among others—over the Internet. The term ‘cloud’ is generally used as a metaphor for the Internet.

When a company wants to start changing to cloud computing, it needs to migrate.

What does migration mean?

“Cloud migration is the process of moving data, applications or other business elements from an organization’s on-site computers to the cloud, or moving them from one cloud environment to another.” (Definition by TechTarget)
