Status: Rejected


Migrating to a cloud from data centre is both thrilling and challenging. It is exciting because we learn a lot of cool stuff and is challenging as the actual process of migrating to the cloud is often difficult to handle. Cloud migration is not hassle provided the strategies are properly laid out. In this session, I am going to focus on
* various options in moving the data & compute load to cloud
* A one-one mapping between data centre elements and AWS cloud native solutions
* Cloud Migration Planning & Execution - How we planned & executed it in moving the loads to cloud for one of our cutomer assignmens - real time example

Audience: Devops engineers, aspiring cloud architects
Key Takeaways: Cloud Migration Strategies & Planning


There are tremendous benefits that organisations benefit from moving to cloud from data centres.Every other cloud provider shares insights on these lines and help organisation modernise their architecture and infrastructure. My talk will cover the following topics
1. Cloud Migration Strategies
2. Choosing one that best suits for the context
3. Case Study - Challanges & Learnings while moving one customer infrastructure to Cloud

      1. Theory supported by real life example
      2. Take away: -
      Theory: Various Cloud Migration Strategies
      Case-Study: How did we apply ‘Rearchitect’ Cloud Migration Strategy for one of our customer assignments to move the storage and compute load to cloud?
      3. I need some time here, Will prepare and share in a week’s time

    Hello Kayal,

    Your proposal received another feedback. Sharing it below :

    • It doesn’t say cloud migration from where. Data center - what data center exactly? Also what all does it cover isn’t mentioned.
    • The proposal is very generic. Can you provide more specific information of what’s in the talk it would be better.

    Look forward to hearing from you.
