Cloud migration

AI-Powered Cloud Assessment

The cubesys AI-powered assessment leverages the power of software.
Installed in minutes, inventories of on-premises estates are completed in hours. Then the AI-engine automatically determines the cloud compute and storage resources needed for applications to perform at the optimal cost in Azure – including Reserved Instances and Azure Hybrid Benefit.
This rich dataset is then analysed and interpreted by cubesys Azure consults, enabling customers to understand the precise costs of migrating optimised workloads from on-premises data centres to Azure.

Optimisation prior to migration is a critical step that diminishes sticker shock and keeps migrations on track. The assessment also models the cost options of different licensing models and discounting mechanisms, such as RIs and Azure Hybrid Benefit. The end result is that cubesys clients can quickly build a data-driven business case for Azure migrations.
Once you have decided to move to Azure, cubesys AzureFactory is there to assist you with the rest of the cloud journey, including detailed migration planning and ongoing AI-powered optimisation.
