What success factors do most companies overlook during cloud migrations? 03:19

Make cloud migration and management easy and predictable

Moving virtual machines from on-premises to a cloud platform without proper planning puts you at risk for spending too much on over-allocated cloud services, or risking performance due to under-allocation. With Foglight Evolve Cloud, you can achieve your cloud mandates with a clear view of the projected costs to run your workloads and applications. Right-size your cloud resources and avoid unpleasant cost overruns.

Key Benefits

Optimize cloud performance

Invest budget wisely

Migrate to the cloud with confidence


Know your exact cloud costs before you migrate

Know your exact cloud costs before you migrate

It can take a lot of research to estimate costs, dependencies, availability and capacity before migrating workloads to the cloud. With Foglight Evolve Cloud, however, you’ll have accurate estimates of all key migration metrics at your fingertips, so you can avoid complications and unexpected costs. Altogether, Foglight Evolve Cloud helps you invest more wisely and avoid surprises when it comes to monthly AWS (Amazon Web Services) and Microsoft Azure cloud computing expenses.
Optimize workloads before migration

Optimize workloads before migration

Even if you know which on-premises workloads you’re going to migrate to the cloud, optimizing them before the migration takes considerable investment in time and effort. But not with Foglight Evolve Cloud. With its Easy Migrate button, Foglight Evolve Cloud allows you to optimize and migrate on the spot, taking the stress out of cloud migration, allowing you to migrate quickly and easily with confidence.
Enhance cloud performance

Enhance cloud performance

Even once you’ve migrated workloads to the cloud, cloud performance can be inhibited by zombie VMs – underutilized VMs that can get very expensive if they are migrated to or maintained in the cloud. But Foglight Evolve Cloud not only shows you where your underutilized resources are, it can show you how to optimize them and right-size resource allocations. The result? You’ll get the best performance at the best price from your cloud provider.
