Mapping the Migration, Easing the Transition to the Cloud

While we often talk about ‘the cloud’ being an emerging technology, the reality is that for many companies, they have already made the transition to the cloud or at the minimum, a hybrid infrastructure. But the challenge is that once you are invested in cloud solutions, optimizing the services so that you get the most value out of the platform for the dollars spent, can be challenging.

During the past year for my own personal use and knowledge, I’ve poked around with a few third-party services like Veeam’s backup tools and have been recently pointed to another new service that helps optimize cloud usage and migration.

Turbonomic (formerly VMTurbo) has a new update out that can likely bring clarity into your cloud usage, especially if you are using multiple vendors like AWS and Azure.

Staying updated on what is happening in the technology sector is important to your career and your personal life but ads can make reading news, distracting. With Thurrott Premium, you can enjoy the best coverage in tech without the annoying ads.

Frankly, what turned me on to this tool is the migration feature that can help those who are new to the cloud move their on-premises operations to the AWS/Azure without overspending. In version 5.9 of the software that was recently released, Turbonomic can map your on-premises workloads to AWS instances and Azure VMs while also helping to identify the best placement across zones and regions based on the performance needs of your operation.

This type of mapping is typically pushed onto outside consultants who are helping with a transition to the cloud. By doing this purely with software, it can not only save time but also a significant amount of spend as consulting hours are not cheap.

The software does quite a few other things as well such as helping you maintain compliance and auto scaling based on real-time resource demands…if interested, you can check out their page here.

If you are only using Azure or AWS, both companies do offer tools that can help you manage each service independently but managing both AWS and Azure can be significantly more complicated. By combining both services into one application that provides detailed visibility into both platforms, it’s an easier way to control your spending and optimize your usage of these services.
