8 Issues Moving MS SQL Cluster from BareMetal to AWS2 min read
Here are the eight most common challenges that can crop up during an MS SQL migration from BareMetal to AWS – one problem at a time.
Over the last few months, several clients have told us that they are unhappy with their production environments. Most are interested in decreasing operational costs and moving to cloud platforms in place of BareMetal; some weren’t satisfied with the support and services offered by their current provider and wanted to migrate to a bigger one.
In either case, most of these issues required us to move an MS SQL database (since most enterprise-level companies use Windows and MS SQL/Oracle to manage operations) to a new platform. Here are the eight most common challenges that can crop up during an MS SQL migration from BareMetal to AWS – one problem at a time.

Hopefully these tips will help you sidestep some of the hurdles we’ve already jumped ourselves. If you’re curious to see how changes like these create lasting impact, check out our case study on tool migration to the AWS Cloud Computing Platform.
