Cloud Migration and Optimization Services

Overview

You have identified the applications that would benefit from running in the cloud. But how do you get started, and how do you do it? Grid Robotics and Kaavo (www.kaavo.com) have combined their capabilities and knowledge into a comprehensive service offering to assist companies who are planning to deploy applications in the cloud.

The Cloud Migration and Optimization Service implements Grid Robotics CapCal Web Performance Testing with Kaavo IMOD to enable deployment of your target applications, in whole or part, to the cloud while meeting your performance requirements. This includes working with your team to:

  • Identify the best Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) provider(s) for your environment
  • Developing the empirical data that allows your organization to select the appropriate VMs, storage options, pricing models and other valuable information required to deploy your target applications within the cloud with confidence and at the lowest possible cost
  • Capturing deployment and run-time management best practices for your target applications within IMOD, and allowing you to deploy them all with a single click
  • Implementing continuous performance monitoring to ensure that your applications perform to your expectations

Delivery Methodology

Grid Robotics and Kaavo will work with your designated team to accomplish the following:

  • Understand your organization’s target cloud applications
  • Understand the IT infrastructure currently in place for legacy applications moving to the cloud (hardware, software, users, cloud-based services currently in use, etc.)
  • Understand your organization’s business goals for the target applications (such as specific disaster recovery capabilities, or a certain quality of service)
  • Architectural review of target non-legacy applications
  • Assistance with configuring IMOD for the target applications
  • Assistance with using IMOD to deploy target applications in the cloud, in whole or part
  • Record the mission-critical transactions within target applications
  • Run a load test in existing QA environment to determine a good statistical baseline of user response times for target applications
  • Duplicate baseline server configuration in the cloud, run the same load test and compare results with on-premise version of target applications
  • You are now ready for optimization and auto scaling to truly take advantage of the cloud’s elasticity features

Deliverables

  • A document capturing the target applications and their current state (including current business goals and timelines, and their IT infrastructure details)
  • An architectural review of those applications as appropriate
  • An instance of Kaavo IMOD implemented for your business, and configured for your target applications
  • A set of CapCal reports showing before and after performance and scalability improvements

Benefits

  • Take advantage of Kaavo’s IMOD software, cloud computing and enterprise architecture expertise, either independently or through its partners, to deploy or migrate your target applications to the cloud
  • Thoroughly test your application in both on-premise and cloud configurations with CapCal, using realistic load scenarios and the unlimited capacity of the cloud
  • Have the security and assurance of knowing that the cloud does deliver on the promise of elastic, on-demand resources without sacrificing performance or security for your applications and business
  • Demonstrable reduction in cost/time/effort to deploy your target applications

Duration

1-5 days per standard application; complex applications may take longer. Grid Robotics and Kaavo will provide firm estimates after reviewing the detailed requirements associated with each target application.
