Cloud Planning & Design

Consider how your developers work today, their test and release cycle, and how that might evolve through a public cloud adoption. Think about how you might want to devolve and delegate budget responsibilities and cost modelling out to different departments. Consider how you're going to stay lean in the cloud once you start on the journey of a consumption-based service. Who is overspending and why, can services be switched off out of hours, and can they continuously be resized until they reach the optimal spend? Think about your evolving culture for accessible monitoring and alerting; it should be everyone's responsibility to see threats and to be able to respond to them. 

Plan for enterprise discounts prior to any migration, and if you're looking for vendor funding based on an accelerated migration, ensure you plan for that too. CDW can do both. 

How CDW Help You Achieve Your Cloud Goals

Don't wait for an assessment to complete – get started with a low cost, well-designed public cloud platform that complements your existing systems, so your organisation is ready to deliver with cloud quickly, securely and cost-effectively.

  • CloudPlan®

    CDW CloudPlan® provides everything needed to quantify the cost of a targeted IaaS use case in public cloud, whether that be a data centre migration or a cluster of application services. CloudPlan® will highlight the most expensive workloads as well as provide the most cost-effective and utilisation-based pricing. CloudPlan® will also provide technical OS compatibility and dependency mapping in order to provide absolute confidence in a successful migration. 

  • AppPlan

    AppPlan from CDW applies the same principles as CloudPlan® but for PaaS-based services. An AppPlan assessment will provide a confidence rating on which applications within your portfolio are good candidates for PaaS, therefore completely removing any support from the application stack down. 

  • JumpStart

    CDW JumpStart is an accelerator for Public Cloud adoption. It's our carefully created framework and design process for deploying a best practice public cloud account, organisation and platform architecture. JumpStart ensures that you're not waiting around for an assessment to complete before gathering the requirements, designing, and building out a target public cloud platform in preparation for adoption when the eventual request from the business comes in. 

  • Migrate

    An assisted migration by CDW can help you increase the speed of your migration to the cloud, decrease cost, avoid inconvenience, and arm your IT teams with practical skills for the future, with expert support guidance available when you need it. We will recommend, deploy, and configure the right migration tools for your current environment, and will run a pilot migration to familiarise your IT team with the tool and migration process before handing the control over to you.
