Success in the cloud means taking an application first approach to designing your AWS environment. This requires a deep understanding of your workloads, licensing entitlements and storage and network dependencies. Without the right approach, you increase risk and the chances of spending more in the cloud than you might expect.
Whether migrating a database, or moving specific applications to the cloud, Softchoice’s AWS Assessments are the ideal starting point. Our analysis services help you evaluate the true costs, risks and readiness for migrating workloads to the AWS cloud. Our AWS assessment services are the optimal way to keep your cloud projects – and budgets – on track.
