Getting Workload Placement Right – [Infographic]

Cloud | Posted on February 14, 2020 by Softchoice Advisor

Placing application workloads in the public cloud comes with a few key benefitsincluding ease of deployment, pay-per-use billing and scalability 

But as we discussed in our previous article, a “cloud-first for all new workloads” approach may be premature.  

Varying performance characteristicssecurity and compliance requirements mean some workloads are better suited to legacy or private cloud infrastructureFurthermore, the cost of modifying workloads for cloud-readiness and the expense involved in repatriating workloads from the public cloud both mean the workload placement decision deserves careful consideration.

In fact, without due consideration, “lifting and shifting” workloads into the public cloud can result in cost, complexity and performance issues that are difficult to predict.  We created this infographic to outline the key steps to getting the workload placement decision right the first time.  

Need help with your workload placement decisions?

The calculations that go into any workload placement decision must weigh technical and business needs. Assessing the performance demands, security and compliance restrictions and long-term business impact are all imperative before determining workload placement. At the same time, a hybrid or multicloud approach mixing public, private and on-premise infrastructure and services makes sense for many organizations. Learn more about the key considerations for multicloud strategy in our guide, Roadmap to Multicloud Success: Why Architecture Matters.
