AVS Migration: 4-Wk Proof of concept

Shaping Cloud

Azure VMWare solution (AVS) provides a path of seamless migration, and expansion of existing VMware workloads from on-premise environments to the cloud.

Moving your on-premise infrastructure to the cloud can be a complex and time consuming journey. AVS enables a fast migration path to customers that want to move to the cloud.

Shaping Cloud’s Azure VMware Solution (AVS) proof of concept (POC) is a VMware validated solution running natively on Azure. Providing a range of Azure services including enhanced security, Azure Active Directory, Azure management, Data Retention and backup, all provisioned and managed by Shaping Cloud’s experienced technical team.

The POC is a 3-stage process;

  1. Plan the deployment This is critical for a successful production-ready environment for creating VM’s and migration.
  2. Deploy Azure VMware solution & connect to on-premise environment Once we’ve planned your deployment we’ll deploy and configure your Azure VMWare solution private cloud. The planning phase will have defined whether we use an existing or new ExpressRoute virtual network gateway. We'll then connect your on-premise environment to your AVS private cloud.
  3. Test & Review We'll test the connectivity and review the test cases to validate the solution. We can then put steps in place to move you from a POC environment to the full solution.
