Zero Migration Costs and a Fixed-Timeline Guarantee
The complexity of cloud migrations can make it difficult to predict costs and move to the
cloud quickly. Smartronix streamlines cloud migrations with an automated move to
Cloud on Amazon Web Services (AWS). Combined with the new AWS funding program that
potentially covers the migration costs, the Smartronix Colo-to-Cloud program can help
businesses disengage from the bonds of their colo provider.
The Smartronix Colo-to-Cloud program removes the financial barriers of cloud migrations by
funding the migration services for AWS-qualifying workloads. The program also compresses
what is typically a multiyear migration timeline into just weeks or months. This enables
businesses to remove the financial burden of simultaneously running multiple datacenters.
Additional cost savings might be available based on the customer’s current VMware volume
Optimized & Predictable
The Smartronix automated cloud migration process leverages VMware Cloud on AWS to match the
capacity, tooling, and operational specifications of a customer's on-premises VMware
environment. The process provides predictable compute and license costs, performance, and
migration speed. This optimized path (time, cost, risk) brings companies into the cloud
quickly, enabling accelerated in-cloud optimization.
Predictable compute costs, license costs, performance, migration timeline, and
migration speed using VMware to VMware Cloud on AWS migrations. Smartronix provides
a firm-fixed price statement of work for straight migrations.
Reduced migration time from colo or customer datacenter to AWS. To streamline the
process, Smartronix capacity matches the VMware environment on AWS and uses a
software-defined network. This enables geo-based VMotion or VMigrate. This approach
also provides the lowest risk as Smartronix has high confidence it can match
performance and maintain consistency. Total migration time is estimated to range
from as little as two weeks to two months.
Reduced transition timeframes and associated costs. Traditional migration activities
(VM to AMI, etc.) require longer timeframes, increased complexity, and higher manual
support efforts, which causes the customer to pay for two environments during a
longer period of time. Smartronix’ Colo-to-Cloud program automates the process using
VMware to VMware Cloud on AWS to reduce deployment time to as short as two weeks to
Accelerated adoption. Businesses quickly realize the value of cloud and can
immediately start adopting cloud-native services (S3 backup, RDS, ML) once running
in VMware Cloud on AWS.
Smartronix provides a fast exit from colo or datacenter environments with fully
automated landing zones that support both VMware Cloud on AWS and AWS connected
environments, for a rapid, repeatable and low risk deployment.
