Cloudamize Adds Licensing Cost Optimization Analysis to Accelerate the Migration of Windows Workloads to Amazon Web Services (AWS)

Philadelphia, PA, November 20, 2018 – Cloudamize, a leader in cloud computing analytics, today announced the addition of licensing cost optimization to its platform. This latest enhancement enables companies to quickly and easily understand which options will yield the greatest cost savings from Microsoft product licensing - ultimately helping to accelerate the migration of Windows workloads to AWS.

The new licensing cost optimization analysis in combination with Cloudamize’s existing analytics ensure companies achieve their most cost-optimized AWS environment. Its capabilities include:

  • Bring Your Own Licenses (BYOL): Cost analysis for bring-your-own applicable Microsoft licenses versus purchasing new licenses from AWS to identify the option yielding the most cost savings.

  • Auto-Scaling: Identify workloads that are candidates for auto-scaling, which can reduce license costs by at least 50% on average.

Cloudamize is the only automated analytics platform customers can leverage throughout the entire AWS migration journey, from assessment to migration planning and execution. The platform’s in-depth, high frequency analytics in combination with its proprietary benchmarking engine enable the most precise cloud cost and performance forecasting and migration planning. As a result, partners can accelerate adoption and cloud revenue, while enterprises can speed migration and time to cloud value. In fact, the Cloudamize platform typically reduces the time to migrate by 65-80% and identifies on average 38-74% in annual cloud cost savings.

“Providing companies with in-depth data on cost and performance predictions in AWS enables partners to give clients the clarity they need to confidently adopt AWS,” said Khushboo Shah, Head of Cloudamize. “With our latest enhancement, we’re adding even more analysis to the detailed cost calculations we already provide - empowering partners to improve the ease and speed of moving Windows workloads to AWS for their clients.”

Cloudamize licensing cost optimization will be generally available in January 2019. Register here for early access.
