Customers can more easily make informed decisions to migrate their SQL Server databases to Azure IaaS or PaaS
Philadelphia, PA, July 12, 2018 – Cloudamize, a leader in cloud computing analytics, today announced its Azure SQL Right-Sizing capabilities, which ease and optimize migrating on-premises SQL Server databases to Azure. This latest enhancement extends Cloudamize’s assessment and planning recommendations to include PaaS, in addition to the platform’s current IaaS recommendations. The platform provides insights on right-sized Azure cost and performance predictions - enabling customers to identify whether IaaS or PaaS SQL options are best for cost-performance optimization and ease of migration of their SQL Server databases.
Cloudamize provides the following Azure SQL Right-Sizing capabilities:
- Analyzes the performance profile of current on-premises SQL Server databases and runs this analysis through its proprietary benchmarking engine to identify the right-sized Azure SQL and SQL Server virtual machine for each.
- Provides the predicted performance and cost of the right-sized IaaS and PaaS recommendation for each machine.
Cloudamize’s discovery, right-sizing, and performance and cost predictions enable customers to understand where SQL updates are required and whether it’s better from a cost-performance optimization standpoint to take the IaaS or PaaS version of SQL migration. Customers can also ensure they’re migrating to the cloud configuration that will ensure the best performance at the lowest possible cost.
“It’s extremely challenging for companies to understand what their data estate looks like and whether to migrate using PaaS or IaaS, or if to upgrade on-premises and not migrate a database at all,” said Khushboo Shah, Founder, Cloudamize. “Our latest platform capabilities help companies and partners make these critical decisions, move to the cloud, and modernize their data estate with better ease and accuracy. As a result, partners can accelerate adoption and get their clients to the cloud faster to drive consumption.”
Cloudamize’s Azure SQL Right-Sizing will be generally available in Summer 2018.
