As concerns over cloud security fade, they’ve been replaced by a new fear: the pain of migration. Failed migrations are forcing businesses to second-guess moving to the cloud. But the ability to migrate to new platforms is essential for businesses seeking agility in competitive markets. Here are five common mistakes you should avoid to ensure successful, non-disruptive migration from any source to any target.
Growth in new markets introduces new costs to
control, regulations to manage, and supply chain
complexities to solve.
Longer, more complicated cold chains mean that
collaboration with third party logistics providers
(3PLs) can help make the difference between
profitable simplicity and unmanageable complexity.
Companies are increasingly relying on their 3PLs
for services such as monitoring and intervention,
contingency planning, and cost control.
Reduce risk by improving packaging, visibility, and
establishing QA best practices.
Improved visibility, new tools, new monitoring
capabilities and appropriate packaging can also help
drive down costs for shippers.
The primary goal of this guide is not simply to provide a checklist of tasks, but to help you develop an understanding of the disaster recovery (DR) planning process and the principles that underlie it. Before getting into the details, let’s consider first just what this guide will do for you and equally importantly, what it will not do. What this guide will do is to lay out a framework for DR planning that keeps things conceptually simple and helps you know what steps must be carried out and why, without a lot of jargon or unnecessary formality.
While a public cloud provides an easy and scalable way to manage and deploy your app or website, you also need to have a contingency plan for business continuity and disaster recovery. Often overlooked on Amazon Web Services (AWS), an extremely effective cloud disaster recovery (DR) strategy is to spread the application stack across regions versus availability zones. This eBook provides a guide for planning and implementing a robust cross-region cloud disaster recovery (CDR) plan for business continuity and critical application uptime on AWS-based applications.
