    Lift and shift vs. re-platforming cloud apps

    When evaluating a new technology, some people like to go all in, with gusto, and adopt it hook line and sinker. Then there are folks whose MO is to take baby steps: Dip a toe in the water and do a lengthy proof of concept. What's right for any given organization depends on its temperament, needs, budget, skills -- any number of factors. One thing's for certain, there's no right answer.

    This cover story in this issue of Modern Infrastructure delves into the different ways organizations implement cloud applications, whether replatforming or "lift and shift."

    Sometimes, the question isn't how to implement this new technology, but whether to bother implementing it at all. "I'm a big believer in the natural balance that forms based on how people actually use things versus planning for how people might use things," Brian Madden said. So sit tight. What you need to do will become clear soon enough.

    Managing storage for virtual servers

    It's easy to understand why server virtualization has become so popular among IT admins. Virtual servers are flexible, mobile and can be deployed or decommissioned rapidly. However, managing storage for virtual environments can be difficult. Many shops struggle with managing storage for virtual servers, and even more could realize better performance with more sophisticated management. Storage management tools for virtual environments can capture and record data from hypervisors; extend visibility into storage, network and applications; and provide trending analysis to help keep resources in balance. These tools can help you take a proactive approach to storage management, reduce costs and improve performance.

    RAID has formed the backbone of local data availability for nearly 30 years, but the technology is starting to show its age, and erasure coding has emerged as an alternative. Some even say it could even eliminate the need for traditional data backup.

    Storage and backup administrators are a tough crowd. So it means something when users of Asigra and Veeam backup products return the two vendors to the winner's circle in a reprise of last year's Backup Software Quality Awards results.
