Remember those long family drives? Remember when we were kids? “Daddy, are we there yet?” I remember driving across the country on those long family vacations in the backseat of our family car, anxiously waiting, sometimes impatiently, to get there. Now, I ask myself, are we there yet with the Cloud?
The Cloud has taken huge steps forward over the past several years. Just like the vision President Eisenhower had for the interstate road system that connected city to city and allowed the flow of commerce across the country, today the Internet is our interstate. And commerce flows faster than ever before and touches all corners of the globe.
Still, I ask myself “Are we there yet?”
If we’re not there yet, how much farther do we have to go? Look back ten years. Think back to how your office and home were then and compare them to today.
Are we there yet?… Maybe we’re inching closer.
Can Congestion Slow Down The Cloud?
Just like our interstate system, there are times when internet traffic is at a standstill, or a computer crash brings everything to a grinding halt. Yes, it can happen with the Cloud.
This is why it’s important to team up with a cloud infrastructure company that can successfully navigate around traffic jams and crashes.
And What About Migrating To The Cloud?
Cloud migrations are full of pitfalls, and it can be an arduous process. The key challenge when migrating to cloud environments is matching incoming data to the storage protocol and infrastructure that’s used.
If you want to migrate to the Cloud successfully, assistance from a partner who can help you navigate the migration landscape can ensure success. The right partner will help you choose the cloud migration tool that best fits your requirements.
They’ll also have industry and platform expertise that can assist you along the way. All of this will improve your chances for a successful and seamless cloud migration.

They continuously look for potential attacks using pattern-matching technology and Artificial Intelligence systems. It’s your Cloud Service Provider’s duty to ensure you can protect your clients from data loss. Safeguarding is one of their critical core competencies.
