Measurable Migrations

Why you need monitoring for effective cloud deployments

The start of your cloud journey

As business priorities driven by digital transformation accelerate, so too does the adoption of the cloud. A recent New Relic survey of over 100 IT professionals found a 100%+ increase in public cloud adoption for new business services and e-commerce sites in just the past 12 months. More and more organizations are realizing the benefits of the public cloud—benefits like cost savings and dynamic scaling. At its core, the public cloud frees organizations to focus on the fundamentals of their business.

Shifting your applications to the cloud, however, can be a daunting challenge. As you embark on your journey to the dynamic cloud, a set of critical questions will inevitably surface:

  • Once migrated to the dynamic cloud, how will the application perform?
  • How do I ensure a safe migration that maintains functionality for my systems and customers?
  • How do I know that I’ve realized the business benefits that justify the time and resource investments?

Using data to prove value from cloud migration

The ubiquity of data has posed a promise and a challenge to many. In the journey to the cloud, gathering and gaining insight from data is critical to ensuring success. However, many organizations limit their visibility and results by only collecting metrics like CPU and I/O from their cloud infrastructure. While such metrics are valuable to infrastructure health, they don’t provide the insight needed to ensure performance across the entire application stack.

With application performance data, you can establish pre- and post- migration benchmarks across the stack. This lets you clearly see how your application measures up after migration and ensures that your customers see the results, too. By evolving to metrics that go above and beyond the infrastructure layer, you’re able to more effectively measure the results that matter—for your customers and for your business.
