AWS, Cloud Migration, ACE

Join ACE: Accelerate Your Cloud Exploration with Ankercloud

October 25, 2023

Are you overwhelmed by the sheer volume of data you need to handle and analyze? Is your IT budget stretched to its limits, leaving you uncertain about the feasibility of transitioning to the cloud? Do you grapple with questions about security, alignment with business processes, and the complexity of migrating to the cloud? If you find yourself pondering any of these questions, it might be time to consider embarking on a cloud journey.

Migrating to the cloud can take many forms, from a full-scale IT migration to adding new components or modernizing your existing infrastructure. Recognizing the diverse nature of cloud requirements and use cases, Ankercloud has developed the Accelerated Cloud Exploration (ACE) program to help businesses assess their current status, gain visibility on relevant stakeholders, understand timelines, perform a detailed Cost of Ownership (TCO) analysis, and provide a testbed/sandbox for cloud migration considerations.

What is ACE?

The Accelerated Cloud Exploration (ACE) program incorporates the components of the AWS MAP Assess phase while harnessing Ankercloud's extensive migration expertise and experience. It is designed to offer both speed and agility through the strength of Ankercloud's global team.

How Does ACE Work?

The ACE program operates within a 4-6 week timeframe, during which a series of workshops and deep dive sessions are conducted. Together with the customer, testbeds/sandboxes are prepared, and a comprehensive report is created, offering insights into all aspects of cloud adoption.

What is Included in ACE?

1. Migration Readiness Assessment

In the first workshop, we evaluate your current IT setup, governance, and security requirements. We analyze your readiness and adoption factors to shed light on the scope and goals of a potential migration.

2. Discovery Workshop

After establishing business and organizational alignment, we dive into your existing technology inventory, including your application stack and databases. This step is crucial in mapping the right AWS services and infrastructure for your needs.

3. Migration Patterns and Architectures

Post-Discovery Workshop, we build a precise AWS architecture tailored to your specific requirements. This includes architectural diagrams, configurations, and systems to adopt new cloud services or replace existing infrastructure with AWS.

4. Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) Analysis

We help you understand the investment plan and ROI analysis for the next 36 months. This encompasses post-migration AWS costs, savings compared to alternative options, and the right infrastructure sizing and configurations.

5. Proof of Concept (PoC)

ACE goes beyond mere planning. We offer hands-on experience by providing a sandbox environment or an application on AWS. This allows you to experience the benefits of migration firsthand and gives your developers a "look and feel" of their post-migration infrastructure.

6. Carbon Emission Calculation

As an eco-conscious program, ACE also includes detailed calculations of on-premises vs. AWS CO2 emissions. This information highlights the environmental benefits and carbon footprint reductions your business can achieve with cloud migration.

How Much Does ACE Cost?

Depending on your current and future IT infrastructure plans, Ankercloud can provide the ACE program free of charge, which means a 100% discount or funding. Furthermore, follow-up activities, such as database and server migration, application migration, and creating various IT environments, are discounted by 50%.

If you decide to migrate your workloads to AWS after the ACE program, you'll receive a 25% discount on your AWS bills for any newly migrated workload during the first 36 months.

Interested in ACE?

Ankercloud's ACE Program, in collaboration with AWS, offers an ideal way to explore the cloud as the next step in your IT or product expansion and scaling plans. You can make this decision with an experienced external partner, potentially at zero cost. If this sounds like an exciting proposition, reach out to us at cloudengagement@ankercloud.com, and let's accelerate your cloud exploration together.
