Foglight® Evolve Cloud

Conquer the hybrid cloud risk free and under budget

Make cloud migration and management both easy and predictable. Foglight® Evolve Cloud helps you migrate workloads to the cloud with confidence, with predicted costs, cost-savings and impact to performance.

But migration is only the half of it. After migration, you’ll be able to fully manage all your workloads in the cloud easily.

With Foglight Evolve Cloud, you’ll be able to achieve a cloud-first or cloud-only mandate without struggling to manage everything you’ve already migrated, and without getting bogged down in research due to having too many resources to determine which workloads and applications to migrate.

Join the evolution in cloud migration simplicity with Foglight Evolve Cloud.

Optimize workloads before migration

Optimize workloads before migration

Even if you know which on-premises workloads you’re going to migrate to the cloud, optimizing them before the migration takes considerable investment in time and effort. But not with Foglight Evolve Cloud.

Enhance cloud performance

Even once you’ve migrated workloads to the cloud, cloud performance can be inhibited by zombie VMs – underutilized VMs that can get very expensive if they are migrated to or maintained in the cloud. But Foglight Evolve Cloud not only shows you where your underutilized resources are, it can show you how to optimize them and right-size resource allocations. The result? You’ll get the best performance at the best price from your cloud provider.
