Cloud Migration Risk Analysis

Understanding the Cloud Candidate Score and and the risk involved in migrating a CI or group to a new cloud or data center.


The Risk Analysis algorithm calculates the Cloud Candidate Score. The Cloud Candidate Score represents the risk involved in migrating each business service. This helps you decide which business services are better candidates (i.e. less risky) to migrate to the Cloud without disrupting the clients and the business. The higher the score the less risky it is to migrate the service to the cloud.            

The score considers the number of servers, clients and affected services in the business service. Affected services count for more than the number of clients or servers.
