Today, an increasing number of corporations of any size tries to move their data away from dedicated in-house databases to third party off-site platforms.
This migration "to the cloud" is motivated by different factors: Organizationally, less in-house expertise to maintain both hardware storage and software running on top of it is required. Economically, the Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) of the off-site solution is expected to be lower due synergy effects the providing cloud company passes down to their customers. Also, most of the pricing of today's cloud storage services is dynamic so companies only pay for what they really use, eliminating the need to keep extra capacities for rare peak scenarios.
However, the process of one-time migration to cloud databases, its details, benefits and specific aspects (such as data security and data throughput) are only sparsely researched until now. This bachelor's thesis explores on the topic by means of a comprehensive literature research.
The key aspects to be researched include:
