According to recent polls, 92% of US IT professionals stated that adopting the cloud is vital to the long-term business success. Yet even with this brimming optimism, a staggering 90% of workloads today are executed outside of the cloud. The reason: cloud migration is complex.
We hear you.
Between compatibility issues, application changes, and security policies the list of considerations that must be accounted for before migrating to the public cloud is daunting. Fortunately, vCloud Air has several powerful tools that take the complexity out of migration ensuring seamless on-premise to cloud transfer and high-speed network extensions.
