Are you planning to transfer your IT infrastructure to Azure cloud? Do you need to modernize your on-premise data platform or renew your SQL Server versions? Do you need to migrate your SQL estate due to company merger or change in data center? Is managing your data platform getting more complex due to too many, scattered servers?
A very common approach is to just “lift-and-shift” the servers and workloads from old to new servers. Although this is often simple and fast, it does not help to “clean the house”. With some additional attention to planning, the data platform migrations offer a golden opportunity for gaining significant optimization benefits. It's also crucial to be able to forecast and manage the future growth needs. By planning the modernization or migration in a smarter way, you will avoid surprises in capacity, cost and time.
Join our webinar to learn how you can benefit from applying the new capacity planning methods that solve the challenges of manual planning or the simple “lift-and-shift” approach. We will show how to utilize software automation with machine learning and forecasting functionalities to improve the efficiency of planning the new platform – and gain significant cost savings.
Learn how you can benefit from applying new capacity planning methods
The webinar will address issues related to capacity planning, how to prepare for migration, and show concrete demo cases. You will also learn how you can achieve significant cost savings by applying these methods.
