IT Glossary - Cloud Migration

Cloud Migration

Cloud Migration refers to the process of moving an organization’s data and operations from an on-premise (on-site) server environment to a cloud-based environment. A cloud migration can pertain to an on-premise email move to Microsoft Office 365 or a full on-premise server environment migration to Microsoft Azure or comparable platform. Often times, organizations desire a cloud migration to minimize their on-site IT footprint, hardware costs, and/or localized risk.
