Webinar Recording: “Cloud Cost Myths”
How can we help you with cloud planning?
The Akasia Infrastructure Modeler builds the cloud bill of materials for you so that you know EXACTLY what to order in the cloud to migrate your on-premises applications.
We can help you model cloud costs for AWS, Azure, GCP, IBM Cloud and VMware Cloud, and a variety of cloud resources within each cloud. You can make a decision on if it makes sense to migrate and if yes, to which cloud platform, and which resources within that cloud platform using one of our products and services.
Our Products and Services
The AIM report gives you a cloud bill of materials and costs that form a starting point for your lift and shift cloud migrations.
ACM always has the latest cloud resources and is your go-to for refactoring to cloud-native options.
Our SaaS tools are easy to use and our experts further simplify your cloud transition projects so that you can focus on your day to day job.
Our Cloud Platform Partners
The Akasia Infrastructure Modeler (AIM)
AIM is a SaaS application that enterprises and service providers use to estimate granular “lift & shift” cloud costs for their on-premises applications
AIM Customer Case Study
Apache Corporation needed to move their ERP application to the cloud. They spent many days parsing through calculators and price books for AWS, CenturyLink and other cloud vendors but could not determine which cloud was most cost-effective. They purchased AIM licenses which allowed them to discover their VMs and model cloud costs in minutes. Read the case study to learn which cloud vendor was the most cost effective.
Discover Your On-Premises Infrastructure
Our discovery is agentless and takes only minutes to complete.
Map to Cloud Resources
AIM’s mapping includes “hidden costs” such as network usage and IO to produce realistic cloud cost estimates and prevent surprise costs in the cloud.
Add Cloud Services
Now you have the full cloud bill of materials that is the equivalent of your on-premise infrastructure.
Compare Cloud Costs
Use the AIM output to make informed decisions about lifting and shifting your on-premise infrastructure to the cloud.
The Akasia Cloud Modeler (ACM)
ACM is a SaaS application that enterprises and service providers use to estimate granular cloud costs for their new deployments
ACM Customer Case Study
The market intelligence team at a large enterprise was required to stay abreast of the latest cloud services and the costs to provide guidance to their sales teams and input to executives.
The team found it impossible to manually up to date with comparing and configuring the various cloud options until they found ACM.
With ACM they simply plug in the services they want to compare and they get the comparisons of the options from the major cloud vendors.

Why Customers Love Akasia
Havebury saved more than a month of discovery, research and mapping by using the Akasia Infrastucture Modeler to model their on-prem environment for the cloud.
“We were able to model various savings options for our on-premises environment in Azure such as right-sizing and BYOL, and build the list of Azure resources in minutes.” Richard Last
Apache settled several quarters of indecisiveness and used the cloud costs data modeled in Akasia to support their cloud migration decision.
“Armed with granular cloud costs data modeled in Akasia specific to our workload we were able to make confident migration decisions.” Pavan Bukkapuram
Akasia helps Cognizant keep pace with price and product changes in the cloud to present their clients with accurate and up-to-date cloud assessments.
“Our clients are constantly impressed with the cloud savings options identified by Akasia such as the most relevant compute templates, right-sizing, BYOL, uptime, VMware in the Cloud, etc.” Jagan Kaveripakam
Chevron used Akasia to identify the best cloud resources for their selected their cloud platfrom and compare costs across multiple cloud platforms and licensing options.
“Akasia discovered our environment and showed us right-sized cloud costs for on-demand as well as reserved instances. We loved the simplicity and clarity of the Akasia application.” Andrew NG
