Visualize Every Aspect of Your Cloud Migration

Migration to the Cloud

The Great “On-premise Migration” is gaining momentum to replicate both infrastructure and business software to the cloud at a lower cost.  This is a powerful misconception.

It’s not always straightforward as enterprises look to replicate their resources in the cloud. They need to actively consider the costs and IT requirements for migrating existing tried and tested on-prem software licenses, infrastructure and service delivery platforms.  An estimated 97 percent of Fortune 500 companies license at least some Oracle-branded software with many moving to the cloud.

Enterprises tapping major cloud providers are surprised to find “hidden” or unexpected costs tied to software infrastructure and platform requirements.

Even with virtualization options, enterprises are often unaware of costly new requirements that go hand in hand with the move from on-prem to the cloud.  To expedite the migration, enterprises ask cloud providers for custom combination of Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS), Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS), and Software-as-a-Service (SaaS).

Migration costs and contract obligations quickly add up and include overly complicated terms and conditions.

There are millions of server cores servicing database and application server workloads. Enterprise IT is eager to reduce both the operational and capital expense tied to this resource including costly annual maintenance and support contracts.

 

Global research firm IDC notes, “ongoing support costs are now one of the top 5 purchase considerations. 92 percent of companies now use public cloud resources and 75 percent harness private cloud resources, according to RightScale’s 2018 State of the Cloud Survey.

 

Customers are also increasing their focus on TCO and ROI of maintenance and support.” Research firm Gartner emphasizes, “Migrating to a modern DBMS offers several benefits, including lower maintenance costs, greater system flexibility and agility, and a bigger skill base.”

Infrastructure-as-a-Service, Platform-as-a-Service, and Software-as-a-Service

It’s a powerful set of optics that cloud providers sell enterprises including owning all the infrastructure responsibilities. But this service level agreement doesn’t mean the enterprise should pay exponentially more for increasing amounts of cloud migrations.

Instead, Remend offers a scalable solution from DIY to complete managed service to proactively build cloud contracts on your terms. This includes the ability to analyze and predict cloud requirements across every asset:

  • Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS):
    Measure compute, storage, networking and virtualization requirements to begin lowering infrastructure and operating costs.
  • Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS):
    Reduce the number of hardware and software tools needed to support business applications.
  • Software-as-a-Service (SaaS):
    Limit SaaS maintenance, compliance, and security services as customers migrate from Oracle on-prem solutions.
