How Akasia and IBM can save you 30-60% on Cloud Costs

Days
Hours
Minutes
Seconds
BYOL vs Cloud Licensing
Model how BYOL compares cost-wise to licensing that is included with VMs on Cloud platforms
VM Right-sizing
Model virtual machine packing scenarios to maximize cost savings while preserving performance SLAs.
VMware on Cloud
Compare costs for VMware on Cloud vs Cloud native virtualization. The results may surprise you!
Uptime Management
Analyze scenarios and find hidden cost savings by turning off VMs that are not in use
Spot, Reserved & On-Demand
Take into account various cloud options and determine what costs would be if you used spot, reserved instances, or on-demand VMs.
Model Multiple Clouds
Compare costs across all 5 cloud platforms: AWS, Azure, GCP, IBM Cloud and Oracle Cloud.

Model all infrastructure scenarios, together, at the same time, across all Clouds

Akasia’s modeling engine takes all scenarios into account

Akasia is an unbiased, SaaS-based cloud cost modeling solution provider that saves its customers 30-80% in cloud infrastructure costs.  Over 1,000,000 VMs have been modeled by Akasia’s partners and customers with tens of millions of dollars in cost savings.

Akasia’s proprietary modeling engine takes everything into account and helps you model all cloud infrastructure scenarios (BYOL vs cloud native licensing, VM right-sizing, uptime management, optimal VM types, and VMware on Cloud) that results in the most cost effective configurations across all clouds.

Discover 30-80% in hidden costs with Akasia Infrastructure Modeler or Cloud Modeler

For clients with on-premises VMware, Akasia offers an automatic inventory of all VMs for import into our modeling engine.  From there users can tag VMs, group them by function, and the Akasia will automatically perform right-sizing, consolidation or de-consolidation to maximize performance while minimizing costs. Take the guesswork out of VMware lift and shift cloud migration projects to VMware on Cloud or VMware-as-a-Service hosted on cloud platform vendors.
VMware Lift & Shift Migrations

Akasia uncovers all potential cloud savings.

Auto-Discover all On-Prem VMs
Completely non-invasive collection of VM inventory through existing RVtools or vCenter.
VM Inventory Ingestion
VMs and their configurations are imported automatically into our SaaS modeler.
Right-Size onto VMware on Cloud
Did you know? Most On-Premises VMware environments are over-provisioned. Akasia automatically creates plans to right-size your VMware environment so you can save when moving VMware to Cloud.
Model on Multiple Clouds
Akasia models across all major cloud platforms which can help you choose the most cost effective cloud, or help you negotiate with your preferred cloud vendor.

The Akasia Infrastructure Modeler was invaluable in identifying the closest equivalents for our on-prem VMs and allowing us to model various architectures in the cloud. We loved the speed and accuracy of AIM and how quickly it provided us with the data we needed to make our cloud migration decision
