Cloudamize Helps The Instillery Triple the Speed of Migration Planning and Grow Its Cloud Business

The Instillery, a public cloud consulting and managed services company, has leveraged the Cloudamize cloud computing analytics platform to plan cloud migrations three times faster for enterprises moving to Amazon Web Services (AWS). By using Cloudamize's automated analytics for cloud assessment and migration planning, The Instillery can more quickly instill confidence to migrate and get clients to the cloud faster - ultimately helping it increase the growth of its cloud business and provide exceptional client experiences.

Before implementing Cloudamize, attempting to gain full visibility into clients' on-premises infrastructures was painfully time-consuming for both The Instillery and its clients. Accurately and efficiently predicting cost and performance in AWS and identifying the best path to the cloud were major challenges that led to delayed cloud adoption by clients.

Because manual assessment and migration planning cost so much time, taking on new projects was nearly impossible for The Instillery without any extra bandwidth. As a result, the cloud consulting company chose to partner with Cloudamize.

Webinar: Cleaning Up After the Cloud Migration Party

 

This webinar, featuring Forrester Principal Analyst Lauren E. Nelson and Trent Fitz Solution Strategist at Zenoss, will discuss the pre-party and post-party requirements for facilitating a well executed cloud migration and the importance of having the right technologies in place to manage and support a hybrid environment.

Pre-Party Prep: Understand What You Have

Applications not built for the cloud often suffer from performance issues due to their monolithic architecture, which is unfit for horizontal scaling. Before beginning your cloud migration journey, it's important to understand how suitable each application is for a cloud environment.

Party with the Lights On

During a cloud migration, it's critical to ensure minimal service disruption. Proper care must be taken to manage the chaos among all IT systems and applications. It's important to understand the proper tools and processes for seamless cloud transitions.

The Clean-Up: Manage Your Hybrid World

For most enterprises, a cloud migration isn't like flipping a light switch. It is a journey, and one that usually ends with hybrid IT environments. It's extremely important to have the right technologies in place to manage that hybrid environment.

Grazed from Ensono

Guinness World Records (GWR), the global authority on record-breaking achievements, has chosen to continue its partnership with Ensono to manage the migration of its business critical IT architecture to an Amazon Web Services (AWS) platform from its current managed cloud services. The project ensures the company's IT system can manage the ongoing transformation of its business from publishing to a digital media agency, which requires a more scalable and agile platform.

Traditionally known for publication of its eponymous book, Guinness World Records, today GWR works with leading global brands and businesses to create bespoke record-breaking campaigns. GWR is now a digital-media brand agency with a wide range of products and services and a key presence across digital, events, television and business solutions.

GWR's digital media and online record-processing services now attract 50,000 applications a year. A surge in high-quality record-breaking video uploads, combined with an increase in partnerships were key drivers in the move to the cloud.
