Optimisation & Licensing Assessment

Optimise Microsoft Licensing Assets when migrating to the Cloud
Accelerate your Amazon Web Services (AWS) Microsoft workload migration process by developing a plan using the AWS Optimisation and Licensing Assessment (AWS OLA) to ensure key areas of concern are addressed.

Employing this free program helps you accurately evaluate the existing Microsoft workloads in your on-premises and/or cloud environment, and then provides recommendations—based on your current resource utilisation data—on the deployment options for Microsoft workloads on Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2) across different deployment options. This process will also highlight the appropriate options available for you such as BYOL with Dedicated Hosts or shared tenancy Amazon EC2. The OLA is a cost free, no obligation 2-6 week assessment to help our customers reduce cost by rightsizing their existing workloads when they move to the cloud. The OLA scans your environment, Azure and GCP Windows & Linux workloads and maps a baseline for your infrastructure, licensing and resource consumption.
