Minimize risk by developing cloud migration strategies and
maintain business continuity with the Uila solution.
More and more companies are migrating their enterprise applications like ERP, CRM, etc. to the cloud. This evolution is often motivated by economic, structural or technological aspects (evolution of "data-centers", obsolete hardware architectures, network to rethink, shifted internal skills, etc.) and / or triggered by an increase in application version, the integration of new modules or a recovery plan to reinforce.
For a successful migration and to reduce the risks, a perfect mastery of the current use of the applications and their dependencies is obligatory.
Uila is the essential solution to accompany you during all phases of the migration, before, during and after.
The 3 most important steps
Uila helps you to go through these steps
Step 1 - Discover: Before migration, evaluate your applications, infrastructure assets and interdependencies. You can also get visibility into the current use of resources and their allocations to help you plan your budgets when running these applications in the cloud.
Step 2 - Migrate: Validate the application dependencies and make sure that all your assets to be migrated have actually been transferred.
Step 3 - Validate and Optimize: Validate the performance of applications and dependencies, and optimize them by benchmarking before and after migration.
Step 1/1 - Discover the infrastructure and applications
Automatic discovery of over 3000 applications with deep packet inspection.
Examine application response times, transaction volume and traffic for each application without interfering with their existing processes and services.
Automated DPI to classify known or unknown traffic using integrated machine learning algorithms.
Step 1/2 - Mapping dependencies
For a thorough understanding of the Data Center's infrastructure and application assets and their interdependencies.
Automatic discovery and mapping presentation of multi-tier applications.
Learn about important performance metrics such as application response time, transaction volume, packets, and more. for each application.
Step 1/3 - Master the performance of your infrastructure
Identify VMs with performance issues and correct them before migration using the Uila "Root Cause Analysis" tool. Migrating a poorly performing VM to a new Data Center will not improve its performance.
View all the resources used to help you calculate your future costs in the cloud.
Measure the performance of your current infrastructure such as CPU Swap Wait, processor availability, usage; by associating these KPIs with the response time of each application.
Visualize the performance of all the memory slots of your "Hosts" with the utilization rate, the swap rate, the waiting times for swaps, etc.
Viiew trend analysis curves for storage performance on read / write and IOPS latencies on VMs, vDisks, and data storage.
Identify the different network interconnections and know the existing bit rate as well as the losses and errors.
Step 1/3 - Estimate the cost of network traffic before migration
View network traffic before the migration to estimate the costs associated with the cloud.
Export results to planning and commissioning teams.
Step 1/4-Streamline your infrastructure resources before migration
View under-sized hosts or instances that cause application performance issues.
Save money by optimizing oversized VMs.
Visualize the performance and usage of VMs (CPU and memory load rates) and compare usage trends with allocated resources.
Prior to migration, optimize the VM cluster by eliminating zombies or unused VMs with Uila's Change Control Monitoring tool.
Step 2 - Continuous Monitoring During Migration
Full visualization of migration progress, workload with new servers, and deleted connections.
Real-time visibility helps build trust in the migration team and also makes cancellations or changes very flexible, with minimal loss of continuity for operations.
Step 3 - After migration, validate the proper functioning of the business applications.
A single dashboard gives you visibility into the correlation between applications and infrastructure across all types of deployments (VMware, Microsoft Hyper-v, Amazon Web Services (AWS), Microsoft Azure, and Google Cloud) to maintain control over the quality of the service and the performance after the migration.
By providing a view of application dependencies, this allows you to validate the migration of critical multi-tier business applications.
After the migration, you will have a solution that allows you to validate the availability of critical applications, and the performance gains from the point of view of end users.
