Expert shares integration tips for cloud

For those who prepare fully, help and ease of use are the main reference points, but for those who aren't prepared, a cloud integration can go badly. One expert shares four tips for better cloud integration.

First, find the right vendor

"Whether it's compliance with different standards, physical location, security requirements, scalability, flexibility - all that and more need to be taken into account when choosing the vendor for the job," said Sarah Lehav, CEO, Sysaid Technologies. "Every IT manager\consultant would recommend meeting and speaking with other organizations with similar size and needs to find out what were their takeaways from similar experiences."

Second, trial is important

"Like with every big change, it is highly recommended to try first and make changes in increments. This way, the changes can be evaluated in real-time so changes and adjustments can be made," said Lahav.

Third, consider bandwidth

"Besides the recommendation of having both in-house and cloud network configuration the same for easy management, it is highly advisable to take bandwidth considerations into account. It is important to calculate the amount of traffic being transferred\moved\replicated and the bandwidth\latency to make sure it can hold the load," said Lahav.

Fourth, document

"For some this may be mandatory, but regardless, this is a very crucial step in designing bug changes. This step can help avoiding errors in the migration procedure. Working according to a plan is always highly advisable," said Lahav.
