Microsoft Azure Public Cloud Assessments

Stratus Innovations Group is pleased to offer a FREE Microsoft Azure Readiness Assessment for organizations interested in integrating Azure into their current IT infrastructure.


We know that it’s tough for organizations to move completely to a Public Cloud model, so we focus on initially on a hybrid environment, and use this assessment to identify areas of your IT infrastructure that technically and financially make sense to move to a Cloud-based model. This assessment will provide the following information:


DISCOVERY - Obtain the current state inventory of your on premises physical and virtual IT infrastructure, including a report of resource utilization levels for all of these resources. This is accomplished by installing a light-weight agent to crawl thru your environment and provide this detailed information.


COST ANALYSIS - Develop the financial cost model of running these workloads and this IT infrastructure on premises and compare this to running in Microsoft Azure.


TECHNICAL ANALYSIS - Develop a visual mapping of your current infrastructure to see the dependencies between your various IT resources and obtain answers to these questions:


• Which tier 2 or tier 3 workloads can easily be moved to Azure IaaS with low impact to end-users to reduce CapEx?

• Are there benefits of having the ability to scale-out to the cloud for specific processing workloads?

• Can storage and backup costs be reduced by utilizing Azure storage or backup service?

• How to utilize the Cloud for Disaster Recovery for failover of physical and virtual servers


PLAN - Draft the strategic plan and deployment plan for hybrid Cloud environment.


FUTURE STATE - Present findings to business and technical teams and discuss next steps.


DELIVERABLES - Comprehensive migration strategy roadmap and comparative ROI against your current environment
