Cloud Migration Planning

Once you get your keys to your new VMware Cloud on AWS SDDC and you have configured and verified communications between it and your on-premises environment, you are ready for the next step, Migrating Applications. Of course, there is a lot of preparation work that should be completed prior to starting any migration project and moving your first applications to your SDDC cloud.

We will concentrate on 5 areas of discussion: Migration Data Collection, Data Analysis and Application Weighting, Collection and Analysis Tools, Migration Options and finally VMware Migration Service options.
