VMware Cloud on AWS isn’t just the fast, simple, secure way to migrate to the cloud, it also comes with a suite of support, maintenance, logging and performance capabilities. In this blog post we explore all the Day 2 operations features to help you steer clear of rainy weather after you’ve migrated.
Whether you’re adopting a hybrid cloud model or going all in and moving everything to the cloud, there are some critical components that are sometimes forgotten. You’ve likely spent some time reading up on all of the features, caveats, and requirements – gone through sizing and design exercises, started testing or migrating workloads, and everything is going great. All of the tasks leading up to this point are we call day zero and day one activities.
Day zero is typically where we look at our current state environment, determine the uses cases and take a holistic design approach. What are the requirements, constraints, assumptions, and risks? We define what the desired state should look like and run through sizing and dependency exercises, among other things.
