5 reasons to jump into cloud migration

Cloud migration is here to stay. Cloud technologies have been with us for a few years, but many companies are cautiously trying to migrate their critical applications to cloud. Companies still do not understand the change that implies, although they know its benefits, and there are many doubts about the return of that investment or the initial expense of outsourcing this service.

Fortunately, today, most companies already have one or more cloud services and their old IT infrastructure is gradually migrating to the cloud. It is also true that, in recent years, the ease and services disposed to have hybrid environments allow dedicated physical environments to coexist with different cloud providers thus has given companies more guarantees and confidence in the face of this transition.

But what reasons does a company have to move to cloud beyond adapting spending to actual resource consumption, scalability and flexibility?

Accessibility: Your company always available

Migrating your company to cloud offers great advantages beyond availability from anywhere and on any device. Without a doubt, it is a huge advantage, since it removes the working barriers. The COVID pandemic has made it clear that our infrastructure must be prepared to operate without access limitations and to collaborate with the entire team, regardless of its origin, and all without forgetting the security criteria that limit access throughout moment.

Remote-managed cloud technology solutions offer high levels of information availability and accessibility. In addition, they are always alive solutions, that evolve with innovation, integrating new updates constantly. A migrated to cloud company improve and get benefit from the constant technological evolutions in which we live.

Pay per Use Concept

Instead of replacing and repairing old servers on their premises, companies can host their services in a cloud infrastructure, so you can save the costs traditionally associated with other types of computing solutions, such as software licenses or investment in hardware. In addition, professional cloud computing solutions have an associated pay-per-use concept, which means that the company will only pay for resources consumed by their cloud hosting 

Of course, it is necessary to reorient and review the architecture of the legacy platforms to adapt them to this format, which on the other hand requires being able to implement scalable systems. Points such as user session, intermediate cache, queuing systems, are architectures that allow the existing model to evolve into a model that supports and contributes to this adaptation to cloud.


The cloud computing model allows you to monitor resources as part of the service itself at all times. Although monitoring is already implicit in any IT department, it has always been treated as an entity independent of the infrastructure itself. With the new public clouds this paradigm has completely changed and the infrastructure is subject to monitoring so that scalability, support, and alert automatisms can control the correct operation of your systems.

Observability, as we are now calling the predictability, knowledge, and trend of evolution data based on monitoring, allows us to make short, medium and long-term decisions on consumption we are going to need and the efficiency of the actual use of our applications. Based on these data we can have a very high degree in our budgets and forecast models to be able to offer data to our organizations.

Prepare for growth

Initially, when we start cloud migration, we won’t have a lot of information transferred, but over the months, that volume grows. Professional cloud computing solutions for companies offer the possibility of increasing the resources destined for business at any time. And, perhaps, the most important advantage, it does it dynamically without having to deal with aspects such as outages and operational time.

The services we have in the cloud have reached such a high level that we have practically all the services that an organization may require. This allows us to structure applications and services by building blocks of all those necessary services to be able to migrate and build new services using self-managed services by the provider itself and forget about its maintenance and the costs derived from it.

Focus on business

Cloud hosting from a managed service provider allows a company the most important thing: time, resources and people focused on their business.

Starting the cloud migration of your company involves a challenge and it is understandable that there are doubts, but the benefits of migrating your company to the cloud are many more. The clincher to successfully migrating to the cloud is having an expert team in infrastructure and development in the cloud to advise you, take responsibility, and accompany you throughout the process. At Geko Cloud we have a multidisciplinary team, expert and certified in the main cloud technologies that ensure the cloud migration of your company is in best hands.
