Application Readiness Assessment

Application Readiness Assessment


Migrate to the Cloud With Certainty

Knowing what operating systems and server platforms you use today is only a fraction of what you need to assess a cloud migration. HighVail provides Application-Centric discovery and analysis to provide you with the data driven insights necessary to re-platform and refactor your applications for cloud. 
With our cloud migration tools, you’ll analyze your web technologies, DNS, database usage and configurations, as well as perform static source code analysis on your custom applications. Data is not only technical. The interview process that is built into the platform rounds out the data with the addition of business value, operational costs, privacy requirements, as well as any other considerations.

Cloud Readiness Assessment:
Find your low hanging fruit.

Understanding your application portfolio’s health and fit for cloud is key to identifying the workloads to transition early on. Then prioritizing the transition of the workloads with the greatest positive impact will create momentum for your cloud migration initiative. Find your low-hanging fruit.
Reports are generated from your discovery and assessment data for each application and are augmented with charts and analysis of your portfolio that are specifically designed for cloud migrations. Each item in the report contains a backlink to the Cloud Assessment platform allowing the reader to stay up to date with the latest details from the assessment, regardless of how long ago the report was generated.

Application

You need to quickly identify the low-hanging fruit for migration, and also find where you might be exposed from out-of-date software. Fast web application technology discovery is performed by interrogating your application servers, usually in just a second or two.

Infrastructure

Track application and server resource consumption over time and quickly size your existing IT footprint for cloud in a way that makes sense for application transformation. HighVail tools integrates with VMWare, VMM and other inventory systems, allowing you to capture all your traditional compute resources in one place.
