SOS Emergency Service

If you are having an outage right now, we can help. Call 844-767-4476 for immediate expert assistance.

If your IT infrastructure is experiencing a serious outage, degradation of service or an unpredictable anomaly that is disrupting the level of service required by the business, the application, and/or the customer(s)—SOS Emergency Service is your solution.

Our team will respond immediately to the situation by working with you to assess the situation, provide the necessary equipment, and deliver the expert staff and tools required to discover the issues that are affecting your service delivery levels.

Infrastructure Performance Assessment (IPA)

The IPA is a comprehensive services engagement designed to measure the health, utilization and performance of the end-to-end virtualized host and SAN or NAS environment. We perform a 1-2 week non-disruptive, agentless data collection, and analyze the results, to make recommendations to improve the performance and availability of your legacy environment BEFORE you migrate or consolidate your data. The cost of this service is returned many-fold by identifying areas to optimize your existing assets and right-size future deployments.

The IPA service includes delivery of best practices, baseline reporting, advanced analysis and alert investigation. In many cases, this service is delivered in direct support of large scale migration and consolidation projects. This service can be delivered as a stand-alone solution that is inclusive of a dedicated, targeted deployment of the VirtualWisdom Platform, or as auxiliary services in a currently installed account. It is applicable to both physical and highly virtualized or private cloud infrastructures.

Cloud Migration Readiness (CMR) Service

The “Cloud” promises IT organizations unprecedent value in the form of cost savings, faster innovation, superior scalability and most importantly – business agility. For many organizations, it is at the core of their IT digital transformation strategy. It is a disruptive force that requires application workload behavior knowledge, careful planning and collaboration from knowledgeable, trusted advisors.

Virtual Instruments’ Cloud Migration Readiness (CMR) service provides the answers to your key questions while planning any migrations, such as:

  • How do you know which workloads to migrate and which to retain in the data center?
  • How do you choose the best cloud service providers for your applications?
  • How do you determine if migrated workloads are performing adequately and what can you do if they aren’t?

The CMR service takes advantage of years of field experience helping the largest Global 1000 IT enterprises with infrastructure performance management and application workload analysis. Our Virtual Instruments CMR service experts will help de-risk your cloud migration by validating the suitability of the targeted applications based on their on-premises performance SLAs, their dependencies, the preservation of performance in the Cloud, and the estimated cost – all before migrating your actual applications to the cloud!
