Once the Cloudamize assessment has been started, the Preliminary Hardware plan will be released within a few days depending on the number of machines being monitored. This plan will give results for a 1-to-1 hardware mapping of your infrastructure, and all of the associated costs in the cloud. These results are calculated based on the type of CPU, number of CPU cores, allocated memory, number of storage disks, and storage disk sizes.
Open the Preliminary Hardware Results
Login to the Cloudamize portal at https://app.cloudamize.com. If the Preliminary Hardware results are ready, you will see the summary details as well as the TCO for the chosen cloud provider(s) as seen in the following image:
Click on "View Details" to view the Preliminary Hardware results. After clicking this button, you will be presented with the detailed information relating to your infrastructure. In the left-hand panel you will see the Preliminary Hardware plan is selected. At the top of this page, you will see a notification indicating when the full results will be delivered.
Understanding the Results
Click on the Summary, Compute, or Storage tab to view the Preliminary Hardware results. Note that there will be no results available for Network until the full results are released. The Preliminary Hardware results are based entirely on the hardware detected - CPU type, number of CPU cores, allocated memory, number of storage disks, and size of storage disks. At this stage of the assessment, there will not be any right-sizing based on observed usage. The instance which Cloudamize recommends in this plan will be the most cost-effective instance capable of matching the hardware detected. Once the full results are released, the Preliminary Hardware plan will be replaced by the default Hardware plan.
You will be able to see the data points collected by Cloudamize. You can see these data points by selecting a machine on the Assess page, and clicking into the graph to show the datapoints collected for the specification selected on the dropdown menu.
You will then be able to see all datapoints collected by Cloudamize so far.
This should help you get an estimate of your costs and help you start your planning before the full assessment results are released.
