Why You Need Right Cloud for Your Windows Server?
As technology continues to develop at an exponential rate, business dynamics are also changing – demanding the rapid transformation of business processes for better growth. Microsoft server technology is no exception to this trend, from our 2008 release, which showed a shift from 32-bit to 64-bit computing in the early days of server virtualisation. Here, You’ll also learn how to:
- Create a strategy by defining your migration priorities.
- Weigh your options before you choose a migration path to Azure.
- Optimize your workloads for security, monitoring, and cost savings.
Time for a Change: Windows Server 2008 and 2008 R2 Lifecycle Management
The newer edition of Windows Server is a cloud-ready operating system that supports current workloads while also introducing new technologies to simplify the transition to cloud computing. Depending on what you’re running on Windows Server 2008, there can be multiple strategies for upgrading: move to a newer edition of Windows Server on-premises, establish a hybrid coexistence for the right mix of cloud-based and upgraded on-premises applications, rehost workloads in the cloud or – eventually – rearchitect, rebuild or build new applications that are native to the cloud.
Developing a Cloud Migration Strategy
It’s important to create an end-to-end project plan for migration that consists of the estimated efforts and timelines required to complete the cloud adoption journey. The migration process can be divided into three steps – Assess, Migrate and Optimise – to solve the most pressing migration challenges and deliver the reliability, performance and security that business stakeholders expect, with limited impact on the business.
Why Migrate to Azure?
Azure provides a comprehensive cloud platform to meet modern, ever-changing business requirements. It gives you the freedom to build, manage and deploy applications on a massive, global network using your favourite tools and frameworks. Azure is the most trusted cloud platform – startups, government agencies and almost 90% of Fortune 500 businesses are using Azure.
The Right Cloud for Windows Server
You can migrate to Azure with confidence because it literally runs on Windows Server. Plus, it’s easy to move workloads to the Microsoft cloud platform and still use existing skills, familiar tools and established procedures. With Windows Server onboard, there’s one place to go for support, and Windows Server licences can be used in Azure. Azure is also the only consistent hybrid cloud that connects data and apps on-premises to those in the cloud. Your organisation is free to decide what computing resources stay in-house and what moves to the cloud.
