Definition of Service Migration
Service migration is a technique that enables applications to be deployed on other cloud vendors or compatible cloud architecture. It allows users to shift between vendors without having implementation, integration, compatibility and operational problems.
Brief Description of Service Migration
Service migration enables shifting and migrating between different cloud providers. It eliminates vendor lock-in problems. It is achieved by providing and designing the cloud infrastructure or applications on open standards and frameworks.
It involves processes that ensure efficient transfer of the cloud-based application to another cloud provider. The level of complexity involved in the process depends upon the application or service that requires migration.
