Who this paper is for:
Another Interxion whitepaper, “The Enterprise Guide to Cloud Migration,” explores Gartner’s five key migration paths: (1) rehost on IaaS, (2) refactor for PaaS, (3) revise for IaaS or PaaS, (4) rebuild on PaaS, or (5) replace with SaaS.
In this paper, we’ll focus on paths 1 and 3. These are migrations that 'forklift' applications (or virtual machines and the applications that run on them) into a virtual private cloud or public cloud environment without the need for major refactoring or rebuilding. We lay out some key considerations for IT decision-makers who want some answers to the 'how' of application onboarding.
