Lift-and-Shift vs. Transformation: A MongoDB Perspective
When moving to the cloud, you face a critical decision on how to best migrate your applications. There are two potential approaches available to you:
- Lift-and-Shift: move your existing applications to run in the cloud on the same architecture and technologies you used on-premises.
- Transformation: rearchitecting your applications to take advantage of new cloud-native capabilities such as elasticity, redundancy, global distribution, managed services, built-in monitoring and logging, and more.
There are best practices that can help prioritize your efforts and mobilize your teams. By working with over 20,000 customers, including more than 50% of the Fortune 100, we have built evaluation frameworks that can be used to navigate the right path for your business.
