    Backup and restore. If you have the bandwidth you cold use rsync.

    I am basing my strategy on this two options

    Option 1: Set up the cloud machine OS from scratch and then install apps and then move the data
    Option 2: Copy over my entire file system with apps

    which one do you think is the best?

    AS said before, if you have the bandwidth then use rsync and copy everything over.
    That is what I would do as long as I had the bandwidth and time.
