4 cloud migration paths to consider

When deciding how to migrate to AWS, companies should focus on each individual workload rather than try to find a single solution to be used across the board.

Key to this process will be considering the level of engineering effort, time constraints, licensing restrictions, in-house vs. commercial-off-the-shelf software, and resource requirements.

But evaluating these factors is just the beginning.

Check out this white paper from Rackspace to learn 4 paths to consider as you make your cloud migration plans.
