Cloud Cost Modeling for Lift & Shift Migrations to Azure

Cost Optimization for Migrating existing workloads from On-prem to Azure, or modeling costs for New Azure-based App Deployments.
Akasia’s Infrastructure Modeler can help your organization’s data center to migrate existing on-premises infrastructure to the most cost-optimal Microsoft Azure VM configurations, or lift-and-shift from On-Premises to Azure VMware Solution.  Akasia’s Cloud Modeler helps you optimize your new application projects on Azure Iaas and PaaS on a service-by-service basis.

Akasia Infrastructure Modeler takes the guesswork out of the costs for Migrating to Azure Compute Infrastructure or Azure VMware Solution

BYOL vs Cloud Licensing
Model how BYOL compares cost-wise to licensing that is included with VMs on Cloud platforms
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
Reserved & On-Demand
Take into account various cloud options and determine what costs would be if you used reserved instances, or on-demand VMs.
When you use Akasia Infrastructure Modeler to perform cloud cost scenario analysis on your environment, it automatically creates an exact bill of materials so that you can provide this to your cloud vendor.
