For many organizations, cloud technologies such as Amazon Web Services (AWS) offer access to flexible, scalable infrastructures at lower cost than on-premises infrastructure. However, there is a common misconception that flexibility and scalability come at the expense of enterprise requirements for governance, security, and compliance. How do you balance the need to accelerate application delivery with organizational and structural requirements—particularly when migrating at scale? Moving applications to public, private, and hybrid clouds en masse requires a structured and repeatable process, careful attention to the details of configuration and resource management, and enterprise-class control to ensure compliance and security considerations are met. This white paper explores these challenges and shares a proven framework to help enterprises simplify and scale cloud migration. • Flexible access to and instant availability of storage and compute resources • Pay-as-you-go: granular pricing for the resources that teams actually use, with no capital investment required • The potential for the enterprise to enable self-service environment provisioning • Infrastructure monitoring for outages and security breaches • Hardware- and software-level redundancy, plus support for disaster recovery • An efficient, cost-effective way to run and scale containerized applications • Granular control over every aspect of provisioned infrastructure through Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) products such as Amazon EC2 • The ability to launch apps quickly—with minimal user specifications and with automated infrastructure scaling—through products such AWS Fargate WHY ARE ENTERPRISES CHOOSING THE CLOUD? Enterprises are seeing clear benefits of migrating to the cloud because it offers:
