The Workload Placement ModuleFeatured
Did You Know?
Workload Placement is one of the modules in the Virtana SaaS platform for migrating and optimizing hybrid and multi-cloud environments. The Workload Placement module in Virtana Platform helps you identify and group related components and workloads for migration to an Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) offering by public cloud service providers (CSP) or to infrastructure offered by vendors (e.g. Nutanix, Dell, VMware, Azure Stack) in private clouds.
What does Workload Placement do?
Workload Placement is a module in the Virtana Platform that de-risks and accelerates application or workload migrations for public or private clouds. Workload Placement provides information about your applications and workloads that make the transition to the cloud more efficient and effective.
This is accomplished by providing two main final actionable outputs:
- Application or custom workload dependencies and/or move groups
- Cost Analysis for public cloud pricing
The dependencies output can be used for either public or private cloud migrations. In the private cloud migrations, the output is used for mapping the applications or custom workloads to hyper-converged nodes. Currently, cloud modelling is offered for the main hyperscalers such as AWS, Azure and GCP and also for other public clouds such as IBM and Oracle.
The Cost Analysis report is used after your applications and move groups have all been created and finalized. The report provides an overview of the relative costs of moving your data to various Cloud Service Providers (CSPs).
