Leveraging the cloud is no longer an option but a necessity when it comes to developing modern IT infrastructures. Today’s IT departments face a growing need to have workload portability as part of their overall cloud strategy. As your organization evolves, so do your IT requirements. This means having the flexibility to move data to and from any cloud provider you choose—now and in the future.
Yet, as cloud adoption continues to rise, an unhealthy misconception is taking hold: Many organizations believe that workload portability to the cloud or across clouds will be an easy endeavor. This could not be further from the truth. Partnering with a data management platform that’s simple, flexible and reliable can empower organizations with tools to enhance cloud mobility, but there are some backup and data management vendors consisting of cumbersome processes, expensive add-ons or manual conversions for cloud compatibility that increase cost and complexity.
