Pulsant’s Cloud Workload Assessment will use collection and analysis software tools to analyse your infrastructure and provide you with the insight you need to plan your journey to the cloud.Let’s connect
The Cloud Workload Assessment helps you answer the key questions of whether your IT infrastructure is in a position to embrace the cloud and realise its benefits.
Realise the business benefits of the cloud – The agility and consumption-based billing of cloud services allows a business to realise significant benefits. However, not all services and technologies are suitable for, or ready for, cloud adoption, and there may be unforeseen blocks such as licensing restrictions, hardware limitations, legacy application architecture, and network connection latency. A Cloud Workload Assessment will tell you which service, or combination of services, will work for you.
Plan a low-risk cloud migration – A Cloud Workload Assessment conducted against your existing IT workloads will identify the most suitable cloud service for those workloads, along with an initial cost estimate, information that will enable suitable migration playbooks to be devised for a secure and low-risk cloud migration.
Impartial cloud platform consideration – Our assessment will consider all possible target destinations for your workloads, including different hyperscale public cloud providers as well as Pulsant’s own Enterprise Cloud and Private Cloud platforms, while also recognising that not all workloads are ideally suited to the cloud and may indeed be better on your own on-premise servers, colocated servers, or hosted managed servers. Many business will find that a combination of services (hybrid cloud or multi-cloud) allow them to achieve best results by matching the right workloads to the right platform. The Cloud Workload Assessment produces a report that recommends the most appropriate cloud infrastructure for your workloads.
Identification of cost savings – As the assessment will identify the exact usage of every server in your infrastructure, we can match this usage to right-sized public cloud resources and calculate the cost of those resources. Our report will contain specific pricing data that will allow you to build your business case for cloud migration.

We use a range of best-in-class discovery and analytical software tools to gather the data we need to make our assessment. Deployment of the service typically requires the installation of a discovery tool in your infrastructure. Once deployed, the tool performs an inventory of the entire infrastructure, identifying every item (servers, applications, devices and users) that will feed into the final analysis.
The discovery tool polls the devices in your infrastructure for resource consumption. This polling is agentless and “light touch”, meaning no significant load on the resources it is polling and so no disruption t o your live business systems.
We will also identify any expired licenses or support and old or obsolete hardware in your infrastructure, which will allow us to make recommendations for priority moves to the cloud.
