Cloud Migration platforms

2021. Logicworks announces new cloud migration platform

Logicworks, that is working with customers to help them move to the cloud and manage their workloads once they get there, has announced a new Cloud Reliability Platform (CRP) designed to help companies migrate to AWS or Azure safely in a compliant way — and to keep that revenue engine cranking. As companies move ever faster to the cloud, Logicworks is helping their customers by using a template approach to migrate in a secure way, while remaining in compliance with whatever industry standard is applicable, whether that’s HIPPA, FINRA or any other set of rules. Customers can choose the template that applies to their industry, apply whatever customizations are required and then move in a secure and compliant fashion to the cloud.

2017. Microsoft launches new tools to help enterprises move to its Azure cloud

Microsoft says that 80 percent of the companies it talks to want to use a hybrid cloud approach and to help them move to its cloud platform Azure, the company is launching a number of new tools. The most important of these is the new Cloud Migration Assessment service. With this, companies can scan their existing IT infrastructure and get an estimate for what it would cost to move these services to Azure (and how much they could save in the process). Azure users can now also get a discount for moving their Windows Server licenses (with Software Assurance) to Azure. This new Azure Hybrid Use Benefit can save them up to 40 percent and is obviously meant to make it more attractive for existing Windows Server users to move their workloads to the cloud. For those who want to make that move, the Azure Site Recovery (ASR) tool is also getting a minor update. This service is mostly meant to help enterprises orchestrate their disaster recovery plans, however, it can also be used to migrate existing virtual machines to Azure.
