How do we migrate our on-prem OSS database to the cloud? PaaS vs IaaS? Should we go parallel vs hard cutover? Do I leave the current setup as-is and shift, or improve during the cloud shift?
Databases are at the core of almost all networks. As databases age out, many CTOs and IT departments have troubling outlooks on next steps. Can we realistically replace often-undocumented tables? Given the complexity of newer DB builds, how much risk do we take on with an upgrade? In short, what should we do?
