CC Analyzer

Run reports based on your live utilization data for precise information rather than estimates or assumptions based on over-provisioned networks. Right out of the box, you can:

  • Accelerate your AWS cloud migrations with a quick install and immediate TCO reports
  • Save time and money on migration and AWS costs with CC Analyzer's functionality
  • Gain insights into your utilization to assist you in creating an efficient migration plan
  • Obtain reliable TCO reports based off live utilization, results from years of data analysis, and your own individual assumptions
  • Easily locate VM sprawl within your organization with our powerful Discovery tool
  • Prioritize your migration projects in order to see what is most cost effective for your organization

Unlike most TCO or pricing assessment calculators, CloudChomp provides you with live utilization data so the reports you receive are based on actual and precise information rather than estimates or assumptions based on over-provisioned networks. Large organizations prefer third party cost justification for major projects such as cloud migration. CloudChomp gives you the ability to provide that cost justification with your own data in a fraction of the time it would normally take.

You will cut down the time and more importantly, duration when it comes to pre-migration assessments. We all know time is money so you can think of this as Cloud Economics in a box!

CC Analyzer has two methods for collecting data. It can be automated for VMware using our Virtual Appliance for VMware or it can collect data manually using our provided, easy to use templates in which data regarding your physical machines and storage devices can be uploaded.

The first version of CC Analyzer has been created specifically to help organizations take advantage of the migration from VMware to EC2. The tool is primarily used today to get an initial summary based on your VMware environments. If the Virtual Appliance is used to automate the data collection, the time spent by the customer is typically about 15 minutes per vCenter. Once the Virtual Appliance has been connected to the vCenter database, you will be able to obtain a clear picture of on-premises TCO and how that relates to AWS pricing. There are no data center limits and data can be reported on as a group or individually, you will no longer have to manually enter every provisioned server into the online calculator, and no more making general assessments of your inventory or general assessments of what you may need in AWS!

We are using an OVA format to deploy our Virtual Appliance (CC Analyzer) and once it's deployed, it will begin taking 5 minute utilization snapshots and uploading the data to CloudChomp in AWS. An initial TCO report can happen almost immediately after install, but the longer the tool sits, the more accurate the utilization patterns can be evaluated to ensure the best performance and cost will be recommended on our Analytics page. CC Analyzer is connected to the AWS Pricing API and will be using your fresh data to show you the most up to date TCO for your organization as possible.

CloudChomp gives you the ability to either use CC Analyzer right out of the box with just the VM, node or asset and utilization information tagged; or you will be able to tag virtually any data however you would like so you can slice and dice the data in more ways than you can count. The tags you add to your data will help you to prioritize migration projects, assess TCO of workloads, office locations, etc.

Not only can you fully customize the way your data is tagged, but CC Analyzer also allows you to filter any data you have tagged in any way you wish. You can save any filters you create and report on them individually to assess TCO on any data or groups of data you have in the system; giving you an endless array of ways you can organize your data to see what is more cost effective through our advanced TCO Analysis as well as the AWS pricing engine. Anywhere in the web portal you wish to apply a filter, they'll be there for you to do so.

With or without data tagging, CC Analyzer is ready to go to work for you. We provide three levels of TCO within the utility that's all related to your actual data and utilization statistics. There is a simple rate card based on years of data analysis to give a third party cost estimate for running your on premises network. You can either use the data provided or tweak that data to be more in line with what your organization's costs are, or you can override the rate card and input your actual on premises costs if you already know it. This rate card will be applied to your assets on the Analytics page in the web portal.

CC Analyzer also has a section where you can create your own assumptions. In the assumptions tab, you can adjust costs throughout your entire organization, or you can use the filters you created to adjust cost in each individual filter you have created in order to get a detailed TCO analysis on a cross section of any data we have in our system. With the rate card and the assumptions table we provide, you can be sure your TCO is accurate.

1ClickTCOâ„¢ is literally one click to receive a detailed TCO analysis which can then be compared to the results of both the online calculator and our CloudChomp Rate Card results. This allows our customers to take ownership of the advanced TCO by having the ability to review all of the assumptions, and customize those you feel are inaccurate with your own data. This turns a generic TCO Calculator into a tool, verified by you, to provide you with validated TCO results.

CC Analyzer's Analytics page gives you easy to comprehend information on how you can save your organization money when migrating to AWS. Since CC Analyzer is connected to the AWS pricing API and your live data, all information on this page is up to date and reliable. The application will also make recommendations for when you should explore on-demand, prepay or spot pricing.

The analytics page will show you three AWS pricing wheels, including both the Lift and Shift and CC Optimized totals to clearly display the power of our application on helping you assess the your true utilization to help you come up with the most efficient path forward. You will also have the ability to drill down even further and see all of the recommendations along with very detailed reports of what we recommend when migrating to AWS.

The pricing wheels reveal the "Lift and Shift" pricing which is an AWS cost estimate based on your current provisioned network, CC Optimized will provide similar results based on your true utilization vs. provisioning, and CC Expert Level recommendations takes your utilization data and turns it up a notch by recommending different ways you can cut costs, specific to your data.

Virtually every page and tab of CC Analyzer provides you with ways you can filter, tag, and analyze your data in any way you wish. You will be provided with the ability to run instant reports that will allow you to slice and dice your data and our recommendations even further to provide you with all the tools you need to begin your migration plan.

CC Analyzer can be used right out of the "box" or more time can be spent tagging data to drill down as much as you would like to get as much detailed information as you would like so you can figure out what type of migration plan will be more efficient and effective for your organization.
