Rightsizing Enables the Most Accurate Cloud Pricing


Rightsizing Ensures Properly Provisioned VMs

Rightsizing is the process you conduct to make sure that your virtual machines (VMs) and other components are resourced correctly; it’s often performed prior to moving to the cloud. Rightsizing confirms that each VM has adequate resources to do its job, but is not overprovisioned with more resources than it needs.

Why is Rightsizing Vital to Planning Your Cloud Migration?

Can your organization save money by moving applications to the cloud? The only way to know for certain is to Rightsize each and every VM. All too often, IT administrators use their overprovisioned VMs as a measure to “size” their cloud equivalents when migrating. This can vastly overstate the OpEx costs of moving on-premises workloads to the cloud. It makes running applications in the public cloud look more expensive than they actually are, compared to on-premises data centers. So you get an inaccurate lower picture of potential cloud savings. With Rightsizing, you learn the real-world usage figures for each VM and component throughout your data center, so your provisioning of CPU, memory and network resources is accurate and cost-effective.
