PLANNING AND ASSESSMENT
Set cloud expectations. Know your vulnerabilities.
Leverage our no-cost tool to understand your storage and security needs.
Moving to the cloud can improve efficiency, reduce your costs, and speed up time to market. But only if your cloud is designed for your unique application and business needs. Over-provision your cloud environment and you risk paying more for resources you don’t need. Under-provision your cloud solution and you risk impacting your application performance.
In a similar way, you also need a clear picture of your security posture: What are your vulnerabilities? What threats do you need to address? Understanding your risk is the first step to cyber resiliency.
11:11 Planning and Assessment helps you right-size cloud resources before you migrate. We’ve also added a new, one-time vulnerability scan to help you assess risks to your external-facing IT environment.
Assess your environment with 11:11 Catalyst
11:11 Catalyst is a lightweight software tool that can quickly take inventory of your global environment. It leverages VMware vCenter to get a picture of your infrastructure. With Catalyst, you can select individual workloads, resource pools, or VM groups for their specific use cases to get an understanding of your cloud backup, disaster recovery, and production needs.
Our new vulnerability scan can also help your organization assess your cyber risks. It will provide you with a report to better address your cybersecurity needs.
Catalyst helps answer the questions:
- How much compute, storage, and memory do I need in the cloud?
- How do I avoid overprovisioning and underprovisioning?
- How vulnerable is my internet-facing infrastructure?
- What are our organizational risks from cyber threats?
- Will my current network be sufficient to support my application?
- Which global location is best for my performance needs?
- How much will it cost?
- What considerations or challenges do I need to overcome before I migrate to the cloud?
- How do I ensure my workloads are compatible in the cloud?
- Can I achieve my replication and migration goals (i.e. RTO and seeding times)
Features and Benefits
11:11 understands the importance, and the challenges, of deploying a cloud environment that meets your performance and cost expectations from the outset. We also know that the threat of cybercrime and ransomware is the number one IT concern for organizations today. With 11:11 Catalyst, we help simplify your cloud, connectivity, and security journey with complete strategy, planning, visibility, and security assessment.

What are your project goals?
To kickoff your Planning and Assessment, the 11:11 team will meet with you to review your application and security goals from a performance and cost standpoint. We will also discuss your cyber concerns and your project timeline.
Deploy 11:11 Catalyst.
Following the goal setting step, we will deploy 11:11 Catalyst in your environment. This planning tool will gather information about your existing on-premises environment for use in resource location, sizing, and cost. The vulnerability assessment scan will show you where your external environment may be at risk.
Begin strategy planning and design.
Once we’ve retrieved and analyzed 11:11 Catalyst output, our Cloud Solution Architecture team will make a recommendation. The goal of the proposal is to answer the question: “Which cloud solution is right for my business needs?” Throughout this planning we’ll provide complete visibility and transparency into the design of your new cloud service. We will also have a discussion about your current cyber security posture and how 11:11 can help with our portfolio of managed security services including 11:11 Continuous Risk Scanning.
Benchmade’s [11:11] DRaaS deployment was much easier with help from [11:11] Catalyst. Benchmade’s IT Infrastructure Manager was able to precisely size his cloud and forecast costs with the assessment tool by accurately modeling his application performance and capacity requirements. After instantly seeing the Catalyst report, the Benchmade team was able to work with the DRaaS migration team to get set up while also making adjustments on the fly as needed.
