Experience in Migrating Databases to the Cloud
This IDC Survey Spotlight describes key results from an IDC survey of 406 qualified professionals, DBAs, and IT managers, at both the central IT and line-of-business levels, regarding their plans for and experience with migrating databases from the datacenter on the premises to the public cloud. It includes two salient question results with analysis.
"For those who migrated, the top benefits were higher availability, improved security, better scalability, and more flexibility and agility," said Carl Olofson, research vice president for Data Management Software research at IDC. "While there are efforts, especially among larger enterprises, to take a stepwise approach of deploying in private clouds and then hybrid cloud, it seems clear that for most data, the ultimate destination is the public cloud."
