The importance of a cloud exit plan

Cloud exiting isn’t something that many businesses think about. It’s likely that most companies believe that once information is in the cloud, it’s there forever, right? Well… unfortunately, this isn’t the case. Whether your cloud provider is one of the larger firms, such as AWS, Microsoft, IBM or Google, you need an exit plan just as much as if your provider is not as big or as well-known. On the note of smaller and independent providers, it is crucial for future business continuity to have a step by step plan, as it is possible that they cloud services could be turned off in a few years.

A few things to consider when creating your plan of exit are: 

1. Which provider to move to
2. How to migrate data and applications
3. Initial and ongoing costs
4. Overall impact on daily workload and future business continuity

Avoid the panic of your cloud shutting down

Imagine that the cloud you have invested your information into suddenly gives you two weeks of notice to move all your data as they will be shutting down. You would, most likely, be plunged into a panic. Even though the cloud is the most popular place to upload all of your data and files, and a great alternative to declutter your desktop, you should always keep a backup of your files, just in case the worst-case scenario was to happen.

Creating a strategy for a cloud exit will reduce this fear and ensure your company isn’t affected by this unpredictable situation. What’s more, creating a cloud strategy is easier than you imagine – and we are here to help.
