The tool for IT.

cloudstep® is the application where you build the total picture of how you deliver IT to the business, important information can be found by the right people, and our tool visualises the information for your specific business case or reform.

Model

cloudstep® Modellor can build a five year capital and operation expenditure overview in seconds. You can explore different scenarios to understand the best course of action. Build complex business cases based on evidence and hard costs, not speculation.

Analyze

cloudstep® Analysis can discover information about your physical and virtual infrastructure. It looks at the entire portfolio of infrastracture services from Azure, AWS, GCP (soon) to show the cost of your server fleet deployed in the public cloud for how much. cloudstep® navigates the minefield of on-demand, reserved, spot and other instance types to compare your existing severs apples for apples with public cloud virtual machines.

Plan

cloudstep® Planning  is a tool that lets you plan migration scenarios to understand the cost and effort.  Use it to analyse the architecture of your applications, how they related to each other and importantly the effort involved in moving them.  The planning tool lets you work out when and how you'll retire existing equipment and figure out the right way to deploy your infrastructure in the public cloud.

 

See the whole financial picture

cloudstep® can build a five year capital and operational expenditure overview in seconds. You can explore different scenarios to understand the best course of action. You can build complex business cases based on evidence and hard costs, not speculation.  cloudstep® also summarises your costs by category, showing you a year by year breakdown of the impact of changes.

 

 

Understand costs in AWS, Azure and on-prem

cloudstep® can discover information about your physical and virtual infrastructure. It looks at the entire portfolio of infrastructure services from Azure and AWS and can show the cost of your server fleet deployed in the cloud and how much that would cost. cloudstep® navigates the minefield of on demand, reserved, spot and other instance types and compares servers, apple for apples between the public cloud providers. Further, cloudstep® can tell you what the hourly or monthly cost of your existing on-premises infrastructure. This includes infrastructure, labour, licensing and other services. See a real comparison between the cloud and on-premises servers that reflects your reality, not a vendor’s assumptions.

 

 

 

Work out the best way to deliver services

Applications are complicated to deliver. They require a lot of interdependent infrastructure and effort from infrastructure and support teams. Comparing different implementation strategies means that you have to understand all the costs. cloudstep® analyses all of this and can show choices side by side. To deliver an application there are different layers of cost. For instance operating SharePoint either on-premises or in SharePoint Online can mean a different cost base but the cost of managing information remains.
