Persistent Systems, AWS Premier Tier Partner, combines 30+ years of domain knowledge and technology expertise with a high-touch, business-first approach to help our customers accelerate cloud transformation. We provide comprehensive Microsoft licensing assessments for mid-market and enterprise companies with an interest in migrating their Microsoft workloads (such as MS SQL Server and .NET applications) to AWS.
The OLA helps customers to identify opportunities for reducing their Microsoft licensing costs. Among other things, this automated assessment shows: 

  • A comprehensive view of the Microsoft licensing estate, providing the customer a complete view of everything they're being charged for
  • Rates of utilization (what’s being used, what’s not, etc.) which identifies opportunities for savings through consolidation
  • Estimated costs of running their Microsoft workloads on AWS in an optimized state, and the savings that would result from doing so  Ultimately, the output from an OLA helps customers to make informed decisions about migrating their Microsoft workloads to AWS. Our OLA service is aimed at ensuring clients optimize their software investments as they transition to the AWS Cloud. Persistent Systems's OLA offering includes the following:

Microsoft Workload Modernization and Licensing Optimization options. Any idle or zombie instances will be identified for potential further cost savings
