Cloudamize is excited to announce that The Instillery, a public cloud consulting and managed services company, has leveraged the Cloudamize cloud computing analytics platform to plan cloud migrations 3X faster for enterprises moving to Amazon Web Services (AWS). By using Cloudamize’s automated analytics for cloud assessment and migration planning, The Instillery can more quickly instill confidence to migrate and get clients to the cloud faster - ultimately helping it increase the growth of its cloud business and provide exceptional client experiences.

By using Cloudamize, The Instillery can complete three cloud migration projects in the same time it previously took to complete one.
The Instillery’s engineers have time to engage with business stakeholders about their organizational goals and tailor cloud migration plans to meet key business objectives.
By providing an accurate view of on-premises infrastructures, precise TCO calculations, and comprehensive application dependency mapping, The Instillery is able to remove its clients’ hesitations and accelerate cloud adoption and migration.
The Challenge: A Time-Consuming Manual Assessment and Migration Planning Process Prevented The Instillery from Taking on More Business.
Before implementing Cloudamize, attempting to gain full visibility into clients’ on-premises infrastructures was painfully time-consuming for both The Instillery and its clients. Accurately and efficiently predicting cost and performance in AWS and identifying the best path to the cloud were major challenges that led to delayed cloud adoption by clients.
Because manual assessment and migration planning cost so much time, taking on new projects was nearly impossible for The Instillery without any extra bandwidth. As a result, the cloud consulting company chose to partner with Cloudamize.
The Solution: The Instillery Leverages Cloudamize to Collect the Right Data on Client Infrastructures to Optimize Cloud Migration Planning
“We chose Cloudamize because of the depth and precision of its analytics, and its ability to automate data analysis throughout the entire cloud migration journey,” said Mike Jenkins, Founder, The Instillery. “Now, we can quickly give our clients a complete picture of their on-premises infrastructure, a detailed prediction of their AWS costs and performance, and a roadmap to their best-possible cloud environment. These data-driven insights have been instrumental in accelerating cloud adoption and migration for our clients.”
The Instillery has also leveraged Cloudamize to build phased migration plans for its clients. In particular, it used the platform to automate application dependency mapping. This was critical in designing the overall migration plan, including which applications had to be moved together and when they should be moved.
Results: The Instillery Helps Clients Build a Definitive Roadmap to the Cloud that Supports Key Business Objectives
After partnering with Cloudamize, The Instillery completed three projects in the time it previously took to complete one. Instead of spending countless hours manually discovering a client’s entire infrastructure, The Instillery can explore thousands of machines and their connections in a matter of weeks. This has enabled it to take on more projects and expand its client base. And when working with its clients, The Instillery can devote much more time to get to know a client’s business and organizational structure.
Through having valuable conversations with key stakeholders within organizations, The Instillery is able to build relationships with its clients that establish trust and give the engineers deeper insights into issues to address, decision-makers to engage, and the approach to the cloud that will be a best fit for the business. By focusing on clients’ needs and addressing their critical concerns about migration with Cloudamize’s precise data insights, The Instillery is able to give its once hesitant clients clear confidence in their move to the cloud.
“We’re very confident that we can send our brightest technical people into a conversation with any service owner, with any business owner, with any layer of management or stakeholder, and can engage in a commercial conversation around the outcomes that they’re looking for and then be able to relate that back to the discovery that’s taking place now,” Jenkins added. “For us, I think that’s the biggest benefit of using Cloudamize.”
