Open source technology adoption continues apace with 77% of organizations reporting an increase in the use of open source software in 2021 and more than a third using some type of open source database.1 However, open source technologies present some challenges, including scalability, finding skilled resources to test, integrate and manage it, and lack of real-time support.

Organizations can address these concerns by migrating open source environments to the cloud and UnifyCloud’s CloudAtlas platform can help. CloudAtlas provides the analytics and insights to modernize some of the most popular open source databases to Azure, including MySQL, MariaDB, PostgreSQL, and MongoDB. Migrated these databases allows organizations to reap the benefits of open source technology while gaining the benefits of the cloud – high availability, scalability, industry-leading security, performance tuning capabilities and access to a large development community for continuous improvement. CloudAtlas automated analysis generates a detailed recommendation of open source environments to provide a clear path to Azure with level of effort and costs for numerous hosting options. Destinations include Azure SQL, SQL Managed Instance, Azure Database, Single and Flexible Server versions of Azure Database for PostgreSQL, Azure Cosmos DB, Azure Maria DB or lift and shift to a VM.

“Organizations that migrate their open source databases to the cloud get the best of both worlds, realizing the many advantages of open source technologies and the cloud – better scalability, faster innovation, lower costs, improved load balancing, backup and disaster recovery, and enhanced security.” notes Vivek Bhatnagar, UnifyCloud co-founder and CTO. “CloudAtlas accelerates the process with data-driven analysis and expert guidance to simplify decision-making so implementation is easier, helping organizations get to the cloud faster than ever before.”
