What is GCP Cloud Migration and what are its advantages


GCP Cloud Migration Cloud migration is an important option for all IT organizations to consider as they move towards a full digital transformation. To meet the growing demand for cloud, the IT industry today offers a good number of cloud service providers and a wide variety of cloud platforms to deploy according to needs. One of these advanced cloud platforms is the Google Cloud Platform (GCP).


Migrating from on-premises environment to GCP is essentially a five-step process:


Phase-1: Assess: It is important that any process assesses priorities and prerequisites in advance. It is important to list the applications and check their adaptability or their suitability for a cloud platform. This can be hardware, performance requirements, licenses, and compliance, user and application dependencies, among others. While apps are divided into "Easy to move", "Hard to move" and "Unable to move", GCP experts consider completely new apps, test, development and Q&A apps to be "easy to move ". Web applications are generally considered to be those with more cloud-friendly features due to their scalability.


Phase-2: Pilot: This is the key step where you need further verification and patience. Trying to migrate too many apps at once can end up with problems. So try to move one or two applications at a time. Phase-3: Move Data: GCP experts suggest moving data first and applications later. They suggest that proper movement of data to the cloud provides a platform for easy application migration. It is also the phase where one should think of ways to move data, which could be batch data transfer, using database dumps, offline disk imports, or streaming to persistent disks.


Phase-4: Move Applications: Moving applications to the cloud is appropriate in this step. However, it is important to closely monitor the process to see the application running in the cloud. Phase-5: Cloudify and Optimize: This is the phase where we can play with the applications freshly migrated to GCP, to improve them. This is where we can check ways to improve elasticity and monitoring. The effective implementation of these five different phases makes your GCP migration successful.


GCP Cloud Migration Advantages: Save time & Resources: GCP allows lifting and shifting approach, which works best in case of minimal architectural changes. Here you can save time and resources while moving the infrastructure and applications from local virtual machines (VMs) to VMs running in the cloud. Flexibility to Change: GCP benefits from the extensive support of Google and its network of partners, who can help you modernize your traditional on-premises applications. You can easily reformat or reorganize applications such as a group of microservices operating on Google Cloud.


Hybrid-friendly:  GCP is designed for hybrids. It helps you take advantage of cloud security and scalability while supporting local infrastructure. Take advantage of the flexibility to easily plan, build and manage reliable applications in local data centers, multi-cloud environments or servers hosted by individuals.
