The promise inherent in new paradigms can often be the impetus for making major decisions in the business world. Companies want to take advantage of any perceived method of becoming more productive and gaining a competitive edge over their rivals. A majority of organizations are also searching for ways to control costs while maintaining the levels of service and performance that their customers require and expect.
Cloud computing models have become popular with large and small businesses in many market sectors. Migrating all or part of a computing environment to public cloud service providers is an attractive route that offers multiple potential benefits for participating companies. The public cloud market is doing well and continues to attract new customers. It shows no signs of slowing down soon.
Unfortunately, not all cloud migrations wind up providing the expected benefits. A migration may be re-evaluated when it is time for a contract to be renewed. It may also be reconsidered for unforeseen issues that arise with an organization operating from a cloud model. This can cause the decision to repatriate databases by bringing them back from the cloud and hosting them in an on-premises data center.
Cloud repatriation can be a smart strategy for some enterprises.
Read the 9-page whitepaper “Cloud Repatriation:- Moving Databases Out of the Cloud” to learn about the journey a database can take to the cloud and back home again. The whitepaper discussed why database are migrated to the cloud, the problems encountered in database cloud migrations, and repatriation databases back to the data center.
