This document outlines the new features that are being pushed on to CloudRecon Prod environment. Customers will be able to leverage these new features by taking this document as a guideline.
This document is to demonstrate the newest features being rolled out in the CloudRecon Portal in July 2023. Customers will be able to use this document as a guide to utilize the variety of features offered by CloudRecon
This document is to be used as a reference regarding new features for all internal CloudAtlas users.
The Migration Assist section offers a list of updates that improve your migration experience. These reports give you a detailed analysis of your infrastructure and application migration process. The new reports offered are Workload Priority Application and Wave Plan Application.
The "Wave Plan (Infra+Dep)" tab on CloudRecon simplifies the migration process by breaking it down into manageable phases, or "waves," and provides a structured approach to executing each wave.
Infrastructure + dependency wave plan analysis is a methodical approach to manage complex system changes. It involves assessing existing infrastructure, mapping dependencies, creating waves for changes, prioritizing tasks, and implementing risk mitigation. Thorough testing and monitoring ensure a smooth transition, followed by a post-migration review for improvements. Netstat data is used to analyze data for dependencies.
In the 'Summary' tab, you get data relating to the total number of waves, groups, servers and an overview of Five R Analysis. Additionally, you also get access to summary information on server criticality and complexity, and the make-up of the different waves and groups.
The 'Wave Plan Details' tab provides application-level data such as Infrastructure Complexity, Workload Criticality IaaS and PaaS, Machine Names, Migration Approach, Cloud Readiness and which migration Wave and Group the application belongs to.
In the 'Waves and Groups' tab you can find the grouping details of servers according to several factors including ease of migration and environment. These groups are migrated on a priority basis - where Group 1 applications will be migrated first, followed by Group 2 and Group 3, as shown in the figure below.
In the 'Waves Plan with Filters' tab, you can find dividing changes or upgrades into waves, representing specific phases of implementation. Within each wave, filters are applied to group related changes based on criteria like system components, application types, or geographical regions. Dependency analysis is considered to ensure changes are implemented in the correct order, minimizing disruptions. Critical components or high-dependency items are prioritized to avoid potential issues during the implementation process.
Once you apply filters according to Environment, Workload and Device Name, you will get a specified dependency graph between selected filters, as shown in the figure below.
