Cloud Mapping

During migration planning, the assets to be moved to the cloud are put into move groups. To determine the cost of moving your assets to the cloud, Migrate maps your current on-premises assets into the cloud based on identified workloads. To determine workload we leverage: CPU data, Network data, Storage data, Host information, and VM information.

Virtana Migrate performs a vendor-agnostic cloud mapping and cost search in the CSPs' latest published specifications. Migrate determines the rightsized cloud mapping or configuration (including compute, storage and egress network traffic) at the lowest possible cost.

During calculations, Migrate does the following:

  • Determines which type of compute device (CPU and ephemeral memory) can accommodate the workload.

  • References a specific CSP's price list and maps to a corresponding hardware type.

  • Uses the cloud provider’s price list to determine the corresponding monthly cost for this VM, based on the hardware type.

The storage hardware types used for each CSP are:

  • AWS: EBS General Purpose SSD (gp3)

  • Azure: Managed Disk Standard SSD

  • Google Cloud: Standard persistent disk (SSD)
