Funded Pre-Migration Cost Assessment for AWS

Considering a migration to AWS but you want to know the real costs BEFORE you migrate? 

Blue Sentry can help with a Pre-Migration Cost Assessment a no cost to you. Through this rapid yet comprehensive service, we can give you an accurate projection of your post-migration costs so there are no unwanted surprises or out-of-control costs. Get all of the answers you need to make the best decisions before migrating.

Here’s how it works… 

In the first step, Blue Sentry will use a proven agentless solution to provide a detailed Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) analysis within 24 hours. We examine your utilization information and produce optimized AWS price scenarios to reduce your future TCO if you decide to migrate. This short engagement will give you answers to commonly asked questions about AWS migration:

  • What will it cost to run my current workloads in AWS?
  • What will it cost to migrate my current workloads to the cloud?
  • Based on my current utilization, what will I have to provision to ensure that I am not over/under provisioning?
  • What options do I have for existing software licenses once I migrate?
  • How does my current TCO compare with my TCO in AWS?

That’s it. You will have the information that you need to make an informed decision and there is no obligation to Blue Sentry or AWS if for any reason you decide not to move forward with your migration.

How can it be free? 

Blue Sentry and AWS are funding a limited number of Pre-Migration Cost Assessments at no cost to the customer. Whether or not you decide to migrate workloads to AWS, there is no cost for this valuable assessment. We believe that you should fully understand the costs and commitments of any move to the cloud in advance. That’s why it is important to us that you know upfront what your projected costs, savings, and obligations would be. And for qualified organizations, AWS will provide further funding to get you migrated. Learn more about the AWS Migration Assistance Program (MAP)

Migration is not as simple as it seems. Simply “lifting and shifting” your environment can be a costly mistake leading to overprovisioning, unexpected costs and performance issues. There are many other factors to consider including software licensing, the state of your applications, database types/configurations, network infrastructure, and security.

We are an AWS Premier Consulting Partner holding the AWS Migration Competency and an audited AWS Managed Service Partner.
