UnifyCloud’s CloudPilot included as new Benefit to Microsoft Visual Studio Subscribers

CloudPilot migrates complex, custom built apps to Microsoft Azure in minutes, not months

REDMOND, WA., March 13, 2019: UnifyCloud, a global cloud solutions provider, has announced that it is offering a free trial of its CloudPilot solution to current Microsoft Visual Studio Pro and Enterprise subscribers to accelerate modernization of custom built, on premise apps to Microsoft Azure. Subscribers can receive the free trial of CloudPilot by visiting the Visual Studio website.

CloudPilot helps organizations successfully migrate their largest and most complex apps to Microsoft Azure in minutes, not months. The detailed application portfolio assessment enables organizations to use a data-driven approach to categorize their custom apps and apply Gartner’s 5 R’s as part of their cloud migration plan.

The CloudPilot SaaS-based application portfolio analysis tool scans millions of lines of custom code in minutes to generate a hyper-detailed assessment of changes required for your code to run in Azure VMs, Containers, or PaaS. Reports generated by CloudPilot include the line numbers of code that needs to be changed, replacement code, and an estimate of how much time it will take developers to make the changes. CloudPilot also provides cost estimates for running apps in VMs, Containers, and App Services on Azure allowing organizations to evaluate the ROI of different options to properly balance the dev effort with the cost savings of migrating to PaaS.

Organizations often migrate VMs to Azure via a basic ‘Lift and Shift’. As noted by Forrester, to capture the full benefits of cost savings and increased business agility from Azure, apps need to be fully modernized to PaaS. Prior to CloudPilot, app assessment required costly manual work taking many weeks or months to complete. Now, modernization assessments can be automated and completed in minutes and provide detailed recommendations on how to best proceed.
