There is an ongoing shift to hybrid multi-cloud infrastructure, requiring businesses to adopt agile and seamless approaches to workload management across multiple clouds. IT professionals managing enterprise and legacy applications may initially consider virtual machines for on-premise cloud solutions. However, it may be more beneficial to refactor applications using cloud-native technologies like containers, rather than relying on the lift and shift approach.
A lift and shift method may involve moving from traditional VM environments to cloud-based environments like EC2, EBS, or Azure. However, for most modern businesses, a hybrid approach is the best option. Nutanix, a pioneer in hybrid cloud infrastructure, offers a viable solution to maintain and streamline operations while meeting business needs.
