Cloud Migration Readiness
Cloud Migration Doesn’t Have to be Risky — or Expensive
For every enterprise, successful cloud migration isn’t simply a nice-to-have — it’s mission-critical. We understand how crucial the journey to the cloud is, and we’ve got the expertise and technology to help you safely achieve your cloud goals.
Preview Your Entire Cloud Migration
Too many cloud migrations fail to meet performance expectations, or result in massive overprovisioning — and a substantial number simply fail outright. Avoid the many cloud journey pitfalls by validating your migration plans before you begin.
Plan It All in Advance
We’ll help you de-risk your cloud migration by confirming the suitability of targeted apps based on their on-prem performance SLAs, their dependencies, performance requirements in the cloud, and estimated cost — all before any migration. You will know:
- Which workloads to migrate
- Which applications are fit or unfit to migrate
- How to reduce migration time
- How to construct your “move groups”
- How to design your migration events
- Which cloud provider to use
- What are the optimal cloud configurations
- What is the estimated cloud cost
- How to know apps will perform as expected in the cloud
- Your application dependencies
The Virtana Advantage
Built on the proven capabilities of Virtana’s unique hybrid infrastructure management products, the Cloud Migration Readiness offering evaluates apps, workloads, and SLAs to arrive at a data-driven outline of the optimal migration scenario.
Discovery: Understand the project
We first work with you to confirm migration objectives, scope, and approach. Leveraging Virtana’s VirtualWisdom, we discover application workload characteristics by generating complete dependency maps of all compute, networking, and storage in the data center and by visualizing all east-west and north-south traffic in the environment. This enables us to fully assess your application requirements.
What we deliver: A target workload inventory with baseline assessments and complete application dependency maps.
Profiling: Accurately represent workload needs
Baselining and right-sizing infrastructure prior to migration can save millions in cloud overprovisioning. We leverage machine learning to distill large amounts of workload data into representative synthetic groups of workloads, which are subset by CPU, memory, network, and storage. We then identify and fine-tune candidate cloud configurations.
What we deliver: A complete set of workload profiles, affinity groups, synthetic workloads, and candidate cloud configurations & costs.
Playback: Match workloads to suitable cloud configurations
By leveraging the workload simulation and playback capabilities of Virtana’s WorkloadWisdom, we’re able to test workloads on target cloud configurations to select cost-optimal placements and verify performance. This includes running what-if scenarios to determine the impact on workload compute, network, and storage and tune configurations accordingly.
What we deliver: A synthetic workload cloud performance report with updated candidate cloud configurations & costs.
Monitor: Confirm all your expectations
Once the migration is complete, we’ll use the power of Virtana’s CloudWisdom cloud management platform to monitor migrated workloads in the cloud, identify any unforeseen performance or capacity issues, and carry out further tuning as needed. The dynamic nature of the cloud makes these on-going tools and processes critical for any deployment.
What we deliver: Cost and performance visualizations along numerous business and infrastructure dimensions that drive efficient cloud management and a focus on right-sized capacity, proactive monitoring, and cost efficiency.
