But today, many—if not
all—of a company’s applications reside in on-premises or hosted environments,
where the full range of Cloud infrastructure benefits cannot be unlocked. They
need to be migrated to a different environment.
This paper, Architecting and Migrating Systems for the
Cloud, examines the two models of how applications and systems can be
deployed to the Cloud—Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) and
Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS)—and why PaaS, specifically Microsoft Azure, is generally a superior approach.
The paper also reviews
