As the combined influences of COVID-19 and an increasingly digitalised economy continue to increase demand for distributed cloud-based workloads and remote capabilities, more and more companies are making the leap to public, hybrid or multi-cloud data centre solutions. Gartner recently predicted that, by 2025, 80% of enterprises will have shut down their data centres, up from 10% today. 

However, the process of migrating the entire IT architecture of an enterprise to a hybrid, public or multi-cloud setup is fraught with risk. Painstaking audits, incomplete or inaccurate infrastructure assessments, limited understanding of the ways in which a company’s needs translate to a clout environment, and more, can all impede a successful migration. 

Whether you’re looking to move a large-scale enterprise to the cloud from on-prem legacy infrastructure, or simply relocating to a new facility in order to better scale, Data Centre Magazine is bringing you our top 10 best practices for a successful data centre migration.
