Cloud Assessment and Adoption

Cloud assessment is a must for smooth cloud migration and adoption. As we have all experienced, hasty cloud adoptions have led to The assessment process includes identifying the appropriate workloads that can and should be migrated using the right cloud platform services at the right time. Following this streamlined process lets, you optimize workloads without changing technologies to mitigate risks while reducing your TCO.

As Garter says in one of its articles published on Nov 20, 2018 "You don't want to look back with regret, as the choices you make can have a lasting impact. To avoid pitfalls, I&O leaders must master competencies in selecting, buying and deploying public cloud services and tools."

Vast Edge has streamlined cloud assessment and adoption by providing risk mitigation methods, security strategies, governance & phased migration. Reduced risk migration strategies suggest keeping the software versions as is while migrating with active data sync to perform parallel testing before cutover. Security strategies include analyzing existing rules and sealing any holes that might have been introduced in the existing deployment over time.
