Plan a Successful Cloud Migration

OPTIMIZE RESOURCES ACROSS HYBRID ENVIRONMENTS

Don’t allow your cloud migration projects to fail to meet your objectives. Start with careful planning and identification of workloads that are candidates for migration, then examine the downstream application and infrastructure dependencies of these workloads. Finally, model out the migration, calculate TCO, and then begin.

GAIN INSIGHT AND VISIBILITY INTO APPLICATIONS AND WORKLOADS

The CloudHealth Migration Assessment simplifies the process of migrating assets from your data center to the public cloud. It enables you to efficiently assess and model workloads for migration, then manage and optimize your infrastructure for cost, usage, performance, and security. Thus, you can plan the workload migration with complete confidence.

UNDERSTAND USAGE AND CONFIGURATION

CloudHealth collects and analyzes infrastructure performance, usage, and configuration. Interactive reports organize the data by business level grouping, or Perspective, and analyze trends and patterns to identify under- or over-utilized resources. CloudHealth Asset reports track inventory across servers, file systems and network interfaces.

UNCOVER THE TCO OF MIGRATING WORKLOADS

When you are ready to migrate a workload to AWS or Azure, CloudHealth recommends what your new cloud footprint should look like, based on the utilization or configuration of on-premises servers. Account for added CPU, memory and disk headroom and support for burstable instances. The result is an overall total cost of ownership (TCO) of migrating workloads, and recommendations on which types of cloud servers (and Reservations) make the most sense.
