Amazon Web Services is now the world’s largest cloud service provider. However, despite the extensive and comprehensive portfolio of migration tools that come with AWS, enterprises will most likely require a third-party solution that offers multi-cloud migrations as a service that is not only efficient, but compliments the robust service that AWS provides.
At the heart of Wanclouds’ approach is our SaaS application called VPC+ which enables seamless and hassle-free migrations, disaster recovery, visibility, and compliance. It helps enterprises achieve key outcomes in the most efficient and cost-effective way by eliminating the need to learn dozens of tools, complex scripting, and expensive consulting engagements.
In this blog we will break down the individual ways that Wanclouds makes migrating to AWS fast, simple, and inexpensive.
1. Removing Barriers With a Simple Approach
Wanclouds’ reimagined approach is powered by its SaaS-based platform called VPC+. The product is coupled with enterprise-grade support to ensure a holistic and pragmatic approach that provides faster migrations while maintaining the best customer experience. VPC+ provides a centralized cross-cloud solution for Wanclouds' Migration-as-a-Service (MaaS) to reduce financial investment and remove the technical complexities that halt or delay businesses’ migration plans.
As such, our customers have come to appreciate having a multi-cloud infrastructure backup and multiple accounts under a single pane of glass, as well as the ability to restore environments across different regions or set up VPCs in different clouds. Additionally, customers can schedule backups anytime for VPCs, network functions, Kubernetes deployments, data, and more.
For enterprises, whether designing and deploying a new cloud infrastructure, migrating from on-premise to cloud, moving across clouds, or setting up cloud disaster recovery and compliance strategy, they need the right automation, tools, and a holistic approach. While tool fatigue is certainly a barrier to a seamless transition, having the right tools can mean the difference between a simple cloud migration versus a complicated cloud migration.
2. Cutting the Costs in the Cloud
More than 70% of companies have now migrated at least some workloads into the public cloud, according to [Gartner research](according to Gartner research). However, this research also cites the various cost mistakes that infrastructure and operations leaders run into while trying to keep up with this post-Covid momentum.
In fact, Gartner predicts that through 2024, 60% of infrastructure and operations leaders will encounter public cloud cost overruns that negatively impact their on-premises budgets. Wanclouds provides a cost-effective way for cloud migrations and the SaaS product is what helps users visualize the actions they are performing so they can confidently migrate their cloud infrastructure, as well as take control over their cloud infrastructure.
As such, our SaaS product, VPC+, also follows all the security best practices and protocols to ensure safe delivery of the features with a simple, intuitive user interface.
3. A Solution That Avoids Downtime
When it comes to enterprises, deployments need to be migrated in a way that avoids downtime while still providing them the flexibility to migrate resources in a phased approach. Typical migrations of a production applications along with network, compute, storage, Kubernetes resources, and security policies, can cause serious financial impact. However, it also must take into account business continuity and downtime, which of course must be kept to a bare minimum.
With that said, 76% of AWS experts say that the duration of the downtime they have experienced was less than an hour. Although 60 minutes may seem inconsequential, it still has the potential to incur hundreds of thousands of dollars worth of damage according to previous studies by Gartner.
That foundational report uncovered that on average, downtime costs businesses $5,600 per minute. This is an incredibly concerning statistic for organizations of all sizes, as malicious activity, extreme weather events, and even human error continue to pose a substantial risk to enterprise security and business continuity as most move their data to the cloud.
This is why Wanclouds provides a bevy of resources for enterprises to leverage when it comes to migrating their cloud infrastructure. For example, customers can utilize our pre-built templates with visualization for different clouds to design and create their cloud infrastructure in minutes. This helps enterprises kickstart their cloud journey with templates designed for common use-cases.
Additionally, enterprises that are concerned about their cloud migration being slowed down or impeded by an adherence to compliance, can leverage VPC+ in order to apply compliance policies such as proper tagging or tracking any unapplied floating IPs or Security group rules. VPC+ will also create proper compliance logs and alerts.
Our approach focuses on outcomes while ensuring customer satisfaction. This approach to every customer’s migration journey makes for an incredibly efficient experience that avoids downtime, which is vital for customers who need to continue serving their users throughout the migration process. Wanclouds achieves this for AWS users by allowing them to ease into their all-new VPC offering and migrate at their own pace.
