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.
Plan a Successful Cloud Migration
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.
GARTNER REPORT: "CAN YOU SAVE MONEY MIGRATING TO CLOUD IAAS?"
Without proper upfront planning, 80% of organizations managing a “lift-and-shift” migration to public cloud IaaS through 2020 will fail to achieve the cost savings they are looking for. According to Gartner, cloud IaaS can save as much as 50% or cost up to 20% more than the status quo, so intelligent planning is critical to your migration. This report addresses how to optimize the TCO of migrating to the cloud, including the benefits and costs you need to include in your analysis.
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.
