6-Week Azure Readiness Assessment

Server infrastructure assessment to analyze workload utilization and provide migration recommendations and cost projections.

Overview

A successful cloud migration plan starts with a clear, data-driven understanding of your current server infrastructure. This assessment delivers a foundational understanding of server workloads running across your estate and provides an in-depth understanding of the resource utilization of those workloads. From this data, we provide a detailed Azure readiness and sizing analysis, right-sizing and platform recommendations, and Azure cost models to enable detailed migration planning and identify application candidates for an Azure Migration Proof of Concept as a common next step.

Deliverables:

Server Inventory Report

Including hardware, OS, and software attributes.

Azure VM Migration Report

Including workload utilization metrics, Azure readiness, optimized VM and Storage profiling, and cost projections.

Application Readiness Report

Including PaaS compatibility and remediation considerations.
