The Path to Breaking Free from Cloud Vendor Lock-in
When it comes to cloud migration, there are very few limitations. However, the significant cost benefits and flexibility that come with operating in the cloud have been somewhat mitigated due to the rise of cloud vendor lock- in. Enough so, that many current IT professionals are abruptly dismissing the benefits of cloud migration at an alarming rate.
Individuals and organizations alike have to make the best of remote computing resources. Vendor lock-in has made migrating to another platform a process of disarray. When vendors raise prices or alter security protocols, customers suffer the consequences or have to deal with switching back-and-forth. To make matters more difficult, moving from one cloud vendor to another requires a great deal of re-engineering capabilities.
