Make the transition to VMC with FSxN seamless and easy

Virtualized application environments can be complex – and when transitioning on-premises VMware workloads to the cloud, VM sprawl, compatibility problems, compliance and governance issues can often complicate and delay the process. Moving to the cloud is not always as easy as it seems – it isn’t a simple lift and shift. If not done right, your transition can result in excessive costs, diminished workload performance, and slower time to value for your cloud solutions.

The NetApp Hybrid Cloud Migration Service for VMware takes the complexity, risk, and time out of transitioning and/or extending your VMware environment from on premises to VMware Cloud on AWS integrated with AWS FSx for NetApp ONTAP. Our turnkey migration service delivers a comprehensive engagement that helps you:

  • identify what to move and how to migrate quickly and cost-effectively
  • structure a new environment that’s optimized for performance and cost-efficiency
  • build in security, backup and data recovery, to make sure your data is protected
  • migrate your VMware workloads and underlying datastores fast and efficiently

Our proven migration methodology, helps you plan and execute a successful migration:

Assessment and discovery. Determines key goals and outcomes necessary to make transition successful by employing NetApp proprietary analytic tools and technology to gain full understanding of current application environment, including VM (compute), and storage requirements.

Design and architect. Creates a detailed migration plan and timeline to fully execute a migration on-time and on-budget by using your actual production workload data to design and architect the right-sized cloud environment based on IT and business requirements and goals.

Implement and integrate. Deploys and integrates the new cloud environment on VMware and NetApp cloud data services by utilizing the right tools.

Migrate and extend. Performs the actual production workload migration of VMware and the underlying datastores to the public cloud environment (not just a plan or POC).

Test and validate. Ensures full functionality with detailed test and validation of new environment.

Knowledge transfer and close out. Provides informal knowledge transfer of how to run, operate, and support the new cloud VMware environment. Closes out the project with key deliverables such as design documentation, architecture blueprints, run books, etc.

It takes dedicated resources, expertise, and time to transition your enterprise application environment to the cloud – but these aren’t always readily available when you need them.

Whether you are planning to extend only a few workloads to the cloud or moving your whole VMware environment, trust NetApp Professional Services and/or your NetApp Authorized Partner to provide the hands-on technical expertise you need to design and execute a migration strategy to transition your VMware application workloads to the cloud platform of your choice – quickly, efficiently, and securely.
