Azure Cloud Simulator


Rightsize your virtual machines, including CPU, memory, and storage footprint, to gain an accurate view of your true needs before you migrate.

Understand and estimate the cost of integrating Azure

Ensuring that you have the right resources in place to improve service levels and reduce costs is critical to the success of your cloud migration. But choosing a public cloud, and then configuring your choice cost-effectively can be a complex process. Virtual infrastructure is complex and constantly changing, so it’s a challenge to get an accurate baseline of your current environment—much less identify gaps or assess the impact of planned change.

Now CloudPhysics instantly shows you the right path through this complexity. We help you understand and estimate the cost of adopting Azure—and be sure of making the smartest selection among the many available instance types and classes.

CloudPhysics’ cost analytics let you accurately project the cost of running all, part, or a single VM in Azure. Run your infrastructure objects of interest in simulations of their configurations and pricing scenarios for each public cloud.

Speed and Verify Decision-Making, While Saving Time in Your Migration Planning.

CloudPhysics automatically performs the data collection, private-to-public cloud VM mapping, and cost calculation for you. Simply download and activate the CloudPhysics app. In only fifteen minutes you begin receiving clear, verified answers. CloudPhysics lets you:

  • Simulate Azure capabilities
  • Identify and match upon all Azure sites, VM classes, and storage types
  • Accurately project the cost of running all, part, or a single VM in Azure
  • Rightsize all of your virtual machines (VMs)
  • Confidently make storage and compute availability decisions
  • Compare your on-premises infrastructure costs against Azure models

You can be assured of receiving the most recent, highest-fidelity insights, since CloudPhysics collects performance data at 20-second intervals. Lower your costs even further by automatically matching lower-cost geographic regions to reduce migration outlay. With the Azure Cloud Simulator, you’ll quickly see which choices make the most financial sense, with results shown in easily understood dashboards and analytics.

How Does the Azure Cloud Simulator Work?

Once activated, the CloudPhysics virtual appliance collects and analyzes performance and configuration metadata on your virtual infrastructure. You see results in clear, intuitive, and easily understandable dashboards and analytics. Now you and your team can access the same verified information when planning your Azure migration strategy.
