4. Migration Planning

The goal of this module is to get familiar with:

  • Migration cost estimation
  • Migration strategy recommendation
  • Application prioritization for migration planning
  • Scheduling migration waves

Migration Strategy refers to Retain, Retire, Repurchase, Rehost, Replatform, Rearchitect and Relocate migration patterns. Automated recommendations are based on whether the OS is supported on AWS or not, and include either Rehost, Replatform, Rearchitect or, where customer has it set to “on”, Relocate.

Relocate refers to migrating into VMware Cloud on AWS.

Users can then manually update the recommendation based on proposed future architecture.
