  4. 4. General Migration Classes Three generic classes from which specific workload migration use cases can be built. • Relocate: Implies the workload can only be at one place at a time. It can be thought of as “moving” WL X WL the workload. • Extend: Extends the workload into new places. It can be thought of as WL WL “growing” the workload. • Sustain: Sustains the workload. It can be WL X WL thought of as “preserving” WL WL WL or “keeping” the workload. WL Page 4

  6. 6. Workload Migration Business Drivers• Business Continuity: Migrate or replicate workloads to ensure an orderly evacuation of a data center that has, or is anticipated to, experience failures, security breaches, or other disruptions. This encompasses both Disaster Recovery and Disaster Avoidance. Seasonal migrations of workloads in high-risk areas would also be included here.• Resource Locality: It is impossible, impractical, or too costly to bring data, or other resources, close to the compute environment. So, move the application and services closer to the needed resources. This could be driven by data volume, device requirements, power costs ("follow the moon"), data residency requirements, or other legal/regulatory restrictions.• Follow-the-Sun: Move workloads close to users based on geographic locations, time zone considerations, etc. This is performed on a proactive and scheduled basis. Follow-the-Sun is a special variant of resource locality where the users are the “resource” the workload needs to be close to.• Dynamic Scaling: May also be referred to as data center expansion or cloud bursting. It is the need to dynamically and elastically acquire and dispose of capacity. We include both real-time on-demand and proactively scheduled scaling. The benefit is that the clients (Cloud Subscribers) should no longer have to build for peak demand.• Data Center Migration: Move workloads to a new facility because the Cloud Subscriber is temporarily or permanently changing facilities. This could be driven by a data center consolidation program, or by terminating a relationship with a given Cloud Provider, for example. Page 6
