Use Migration Evaluator in protected or regulated environments by anonymizing sensitive network data
The AWS Migration Evaluator can help organizations with VMware fleets by collecting detailed data on VM (virtual machine) usage and using that to prepare a business case for moving to the cloud and estimate the cost of migration. However, sensitive network data collected by the Migration Evaluator, such as system names and IP addresses, cannot leave highly secured and regulated organisations. In this blog post, learn how a simple python script can anonymize AWS Migration Evaluator usage data, allowing it to be uploaded even in highly regulated environments.
