- With IT facing increased pressure to migrate legacy systems to the cloud, database virtualization (DBV) is a valuable tool.
- A recent Fortune survey found that more than 80 percent of CEOs are preparing for an impending recession.
- Although the shape and depth of this downturn are still subject to discussion, several large enterprises have already shifted into high gear to reduce costs wherever they can.
IT leaders are currently tasked with reining their data infrastructure’s cost. Cloud databases offer an excellent opportunity to move to a more scalable and flexible model that can react rapidly to market demands and result in cost savings when the economy contracts. The cloud also helps an enterprise ensure it is ready to scale sooner when markets recover.
Though there is a reason why migrations are considered the bane of the industry, moving business users and their workloads to the cloud is challenging, it might be one of the most challenging problems in all of Information Technology.
Database virtualization (DBV) is a powerful catalyst that lets IT move between database stacks and introduce new technology. It also enables them to shed legacy systems that are turning into organizational liability.
A Database virtualization (DBV) platform sits in the data path and translates SQL & API calls in real time. To put it in a simple way, with DBV, applications written for one database can run directly using a different database without a costly, drawn-out, and highly risk-laden migration.
For future data projects, Database virtualization (DBV) can act as both tactical “pain relief” and a strategic enabler. It can accelerate database migrations, optimize workloads, and consolidate database stacks.
With DBV, IT can solve both the challenges of consolidating and reducing costs while setting itself up for growth and expansion during the market recovery.
