When it comes to cloud migration, elasticity is critical in enabling customers to accommodate their requirements during the migration and steady state operations afterwards. Both cloud computing and network connectivity need to be equally elastic and reliable to meet customer requirements to minimise downtime and maximise application performance. Colt has been a Microsoft Azure ExpressRoute partner since 2014 and has provided OnDemand connectivity since 2016.
The purpose of this session is to show how you can use this elasticity to speed up migration of critical workloads such as SAP to Azure and reduce business downtime.
Key topics discussed:
- Overview of a typical SAP migration
- Planning, testing, optimising, go-live
- Reducing downtime
- Leveraging compute and network elasticity
- De-risking migration
- Service Assurance
- Competitive Position
- Location Independence
- Country POP and customer DC flexibility and Key for resilience conversations
- Speed to deliver and bandwidth elasticity
- Multiple connectivity options
- Connectivity Options – SD-WAN Cloud Gateway, Multi-cloud, On-Demand, Ethernet with or without rout
