We’re very pleased to announce today that the Cloudamize platform now offers the industry’s first true agentless solution, Agentless Data Collector. This update enables enterprises that cannot install agents due to internal policy, change management, or security standards to now leverage a solution for truly in-depth discovery, TCO analysis, and dependency mapping.
With the introduction of our new Agentless Data Collector, Cloudamize adds a new solution to a comprehensive suite of offerings that enable systems integrators and cloud consultants to create successful cloud migration strategies for clients with various requirements. The Cloudamize Agentless Data Collector can be used to discover and assess both physical and virtual machines. It is a true agentless application in that, unlike other offerings, it doesn’t require organizations to install anything on machines that need to be discovered, even for the purpose of gathering connectivity data.
How it works is that we deploy the Agentless Data Collector on a physical Windows server or Windows virtual machine. Each collector can be used to monitor up to 500 machines, and additional collectors can be installed on separate machines to handle larger infrastructure. The Cloudamize Agentless Data Collector uses SSH to discover and communicate with Linux machines on the subnet, and WMI to discover and communicate with Windows machines. It then sends the encrypted data to the Cloudamize servers for processing.
In addition to Agentless Data Collector, our Winter ’18 release also includes CMDB-based assessments and CMDB machine tags. Customers can simply upload CMDB data into Cloudamize for quick, high-level cloud cost calculations, and to automatically build move groups based on machine tags.
With these new updates, we’re continuing to make planning migrations to AWS, Azure, and Google easier, faster, and more accurate. Check out the full press release here.
