Specialized Services and Solutions Integrator WSM Launches Tool That Estimates Costs of Moving Workloads to the Cloud
May 19, 2017
Specialized services and solutions integrator WSM International (WSM) has announced the launch of a new tool that estimates costs related to moving workloads to the cloud. WSM, which has headquarters in St. Clair Shores, Michigan, United States, specializes in offering cloud and server migration, transformation and DevOps services. Alongside migration planning services its wealth of offerings include target architecture planning and design, disaster recovery, security vulnerability scanning, server monitoring and server workload and application maintenance. The company’s new tool is called ‘Cloud Catalyst’.
Traditionally asset inventories took days, weeks and even months to achieve, but Cloud Catalyst is a browser-based tool that takes minutes to provide information “for any organization considering a workload migration”. The “rapid, secure, agentless automated software” has been released in beta and is designed to estimate costs of “moving workloads out of the data center to the cloud, or from cloud to cloud”. The user friendly tool can be used by non-technical users for Amazon Web Services (AWS), Microsoft Azure, Google Cloud or proprietary public and private clouds. It can also facilitate digital inventory management and managing security and compliance management.
“The first issue when considering the transition of workloads off-premises, or to the cloud or between clouds, is understanding what is involved and what the costs will look like when the transition is completed,” explained WSM’s CEO, Ryan Pelerin. “That is exactly what our automated software does, which is built using our experience over more than a decade of successfully migrating tens of thousands of workloads for customers big and small. Now, any organization will have a very clear view of the costs and requirements associated with any planned migrations.”
