Moving all or a portion of your IT infrastructure to the cloud is a rapidly growing trend. Migrations may take on many different forms - from moving a single data center, a group of data centers, or a set of applications regardless of which data center they may reside in. Our focus will be around migrating your on-premise Apache Solr infrastructure to the Google Cloud Platform. Whether you’ve completed many migrations or if this is your first one, migrating your Solr infrastructure does pose some specific issues that should be carefully considered and planned.

The decision to migrate to the cloud can be driven by a number of factors including: cost reduction, increased agility and flexibility, and increased developer productivity.

While there are many common characteristics found in successful migrations, there is no magic solution that will work for all scenarios. We examine a list of considerations as you plan your Solr migration from on-premise to the cloud.
