Get an idea of your costs in 5 simple steps
Step 1 - Questionnaire
Complete a simple multiple choice questionnaire on your cloud objectives.
This information is used to help build your business case for your cloud and identify financial incentives available from the cloud vendors.
Step 2 - Upload Servers
Upload your server details, no agent deployment is needed.
Data can be uploaded via a CSV file or, for VMware users, simply provide an RVTools spreadsheet.
Only a minimal amount of data is needed: a simple list of servers containing number of CPUs, memory and disk is sufficient. However, more data can be provided such as performance metrics to improve the calculations and final output.
Step 3 - Inventory
Use the server inventory to see the cloud compatibility status for lift-and-shift to AWS, Azure, Google Cloud or Oracle.
You can also view and edit servers to provide additional details such as applications running on the machines, environments in use, or hypervisor hosts.
Step 4 - Cloud Cost Modeller
Understand the cost of running your environment on the cloud with a side-by-side comparison of costs for your servers across the four main cloud providers.
Apply different modelling parameters such as region, rightsizing, Azure Hybrid Use Benefit and more.
The cost modeller shows you different purchase options including On-demand pricing and 1 and 3 year reservations. For each server a target machine type on cloud is identified, this list can be output for use on your project.
Step 5 - Summary
The summary dashboard brings all of the information together to help you build your business case.
See cost summaries by cloud, data centre, environments or applications and a 3-year view of the technical debt and supportability.
Your qualification for cloud vendor incentives is assessed and details provided. Cloud vendor incentives can be in excess of $500,000 of cash funding and credits.
All of the information can be exported into a PowerPoint presentation to build out your business case.
