Learn how Ravi Yadav tackles moving existing workloads from On-prem to the Cloud.

Recently, there’s been a lot of buzz around configuring servers and moving the entire IT platform from the traditional on-premises environment to the cloud. There are several ways to move from on-premises to the cloud. 

When moving from on-premises to the cloud, it is necessary to know the features of each migration method and consider the budget and practicality. It’s also important to make this transition decision for the right reasons and do it the right way.

Are you wondering what exactly you need to know about moving existing workloads from On-Prem to the cloud? Well, here’s all you need to know.

The Difference between On-Prem and Cloud

First, it’s important to point out the difference between the two.

  1. On-Prem is the configuration in which the servers and other IT equipment are operated in a physical facility managed by the organization
  2. Cloud is the environment where servers and services can be used liberally through the Internet

When it comes to their speed level, On-Prem is typically slower than the Cloud because of its systems that need to be put in place. A Cloud environment can be built within moments, and it works at a much faster speed.

While On-Prem is more customizable and flexible than the Cloud, the quality that the Cloud provides for your organization is much higher. The Cloud allows you to combine several services at the same time.

So, for any of these differences and benefits that the Cloud offers, you may want to switch your existing workload from On-Prem to the Cloud.

Transitioning from On-Prem to the Cloud

Several cloud providers are available these days, and each has specific features and benefits. When moving from On-Prem to the Cloud, it’s important to look into the features to know which work best.

At CoreView, we follow a track record and affirm that Microsoft Azure is a high-ranking cloud provider. It has a high affinity with On-Prem, and its Active Directory has an overwhelming advantage in hybrid cloud methods that would be idle when you’re transitioning from On-Prem.

Ways to Transitioning from On-Prem to the Cloud

There are also many ways in which you can move from On-Prem to the cloud.

You may decide to lift and re-host – which means to move to the cloud while keeping the system configuration and applications intact; or re-platforming – which implies that you bring in the architecture rather than just lifting and re-hosting. 

Repurchasing is another method where you can replace the On-Prem products with ones that already exist in the cloud. Lastly, you can refactor, which means taking complete advantage of the functions available in the cloud and rebuilding your application. 


The point where your organization is pondering a migration from On-Prem to the cloud is the point where you should try it out and see how it goes.

It’s very common to spend time planning this migration phase. However, trying it out allows you to know whether it’s a great option. Thankfully, CoreView is here to help you integrate fully into Microsoft 365 and reduce the possible chaos you may experience.
