5 Considerations About Cloud Migration

September 17, 2019

Implementing cloud solutions in your business can have significant short and long-term benefits including cost savings, flexibility, increased productivity and more. Here, we’ll look at several benefits of migrating services to All Covered’s Cloud environment that may be important considerations to optimizing your business processes.

Cap Ex. Vs. Op Ex.

A cloud computing solution means storing your data off-site, eliminating the need to buy the hardware and software necessary to run datacenters on premise. In turn, the expenditure of storing your data off-site becomes an operational expense; it saves you money using only as much as you need, when you need it. If you are faced with a large hardware refresh, it is time to consider moving to the cloud.

Flexibility and Productivity

Commonly self-service and on-demand, cloud computing services can be set up quickly, giving your business the ability to increase or decrease bandwidth demands with just a few clicks of a button.

Want to increase productivity? Consider moving your data off-site. Increased productivity is achieved when on-site datacenters, which often require tremendous maintenance, are removed from the equation. By moving to the cloud, you also unburden yourself from the maintenance of hardware and infrastructure. This allows your organization to focus on activities that add value to the business.

Staying Up-to-Date

Remove the need to maintain upgrades to systems in-house by turning to cloud computing solutions from All Covered, which are regularly upgraded to the latest generation of fast and efficient computing hardware. Benefit from reduced network latency for applications and eventual long-term cost savings. No more capital budgeting for upgrade, no long upgrade weekends for staff and no more disposal headaches.


Redundancy is imperative in the event disaster strikes. Maintaining your data in an off-site location makes backup, disaster recovery, and business continuity easier and less expensive. Our datacenter is the most dependable place to house data for quick recall should the need arise. Economies of scale allow us to build our cloud with complete redundancy and full leverage of high availability features.

Last but not least, Security

Between 2018 and 2020, researchers from Oracle and KPMG predicted the number of organizations with more than half of their data in the cloud will increase by a factor of 3.5, mainly due to security requirements. Our cloud backup solution replicates your data to an SSAE-16 / SAS 70 type II compliant data center. Data is compressed, de-duplicated, encrypted and stored on our servers delivering the most optimal security for your business’s needs. Trusting All Covered to house your data helps protect your business from potential breaches and threats with exceedingly secure infrastructures.
