PLANNING AND ASSESSMENT

Set cloud expectations before you migrate.
Catalyst

Know before you go – and get it right the first time.

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.

11:11 Planning and Assessment helps you right-size cloud resources before you migrate. Leveraging our custom-designed software, 11:11 Catalyst, our Planning and Assessment service helps you build a cloud service that fits your applications’ unique cloud hosting, backup, and disaster recovery requirements.

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.

Catalyst helps answer the questions:

  • How much compute, storage, and memory do I need in the cloud? How do I avoid overprovisioning and underprovisioning?
  • 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)

Strategy and Design
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.

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.

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.
