The provisioning of traditional IT resources is different with Microsoft Azure. A one-for-one (or like-for-like) migration strategy often leads to unnecessary cost. Without the right approach, you risk spending more in the cloud than you might expect.
Whether considering a SQL database migration, or moving specific applications to the cloud, Softchoice's Microsoft Azure Assessments are an ideal starting point. These analysis services help you evaluate the costs, risks and readiness for migrating workloads to the Microsoft cloud.
Evaluate the costs, benefits and ROI of an Azure cloud migration.
Understand the readiness of specific workloads, applications and databases for Azure.
Prioritize which applications to migrate first and which applications should remain on premise.
Create a roadmap, including costs and timing for a larger cloud strategy.
Free of charge, the Softchoice Public Cloud TechCheck delivers a like-for-like cost analysis based on your existing infrastructure in a way that provides full visibility into projected public cloud consumption. Softchoice experts then illustrate how your current state maps to Azure so you can derive fact-based insights and gain the initial inputs to begin planning your transition.
The Softchoice Workload Analyzer is an application assessment service for migration planning. This service evaluates all of your migration options in the context of your own environment and business needs through consultation with Softchoice experts. The data you gather with the Workload Analyzer service helps you fully understand the impact of possible migrations so you can prioritize the most appropriate data and applications to move to the cloud. With Workload Analyzer, you will be able to link costs, potential risks, and business benefits to an actionable migration strategy.
Our cloud experts catalog your application, server, storage and network needs, establishing an in-depth understanding of your current operating state. We then present a variety of migration options, highlighting the costs, benefits and risks of each. Our goal is to help you choose the right Azure migration path – one that serves your current and future needs, while minimizing risk and maximizing savings.
