Did you know that around 2/3 of the businesses are still using on-premise data storage options to store their data? While some of them have their specified reasons not to join the cloud computing movement, others feel like the step of migrating their vast big data lake to the cloud is just a step too big and far away. Let alone integrating all their different data sources. But, luckily, it doesn't have to be difficult. At least, according to this helpful Google explanation of how to transfer data from Teradata towards the Google Cloud Platform. We recommend it to everyone who is interested in making the next big step to the cloud.
The likable thing about the article is their explanation on how to move data in gradual stages, instead of doing the whole batch all at once. This approach makes it all more manageable, and you don't have to choose between the two different data storage options from one day to the other, just do your migration step by step, slowly over time and let your employees get used to it.
Of course, the data transition is not something that a three-year-old could do or just your regular office staff. A general technical knowledge about the IT infrastructure of your company is needed. If you don't have in-house developers, there's always the option of tuning in a specialized party (in the case of Google; A Google Cloud Partner), to support you in the process, or even take the whole migration out of your hands. In that case, you are completely sure your entire data lake will stay intact, and nothing goes wrong.
