AWS OLA (Optimization and Licensing Assessment)
AWS OLA is a tool-based IT inventory assessment. The result of this assessment is your individual business case (TCO) and ultimately the basis for your strategic decision – for or against a migration to the AWS Cloud.
Decision makers need reliable information for or against a migration to the AWS cloud.
Due to the different underlying cost models, a one-to-one comparison between on-prem (capex) and cloud-based IT environments (opex – pay per use) is impossible.
Creating a cloud business case based on server inventory lists is therefore not the right approach here.
Our Consulting Services
A clearly structured approach based on AWS best practices
- Joint kick-off meeting
- Installation of the collector (customer VM)
- Start Data Collection (source: metadata e.g. vSphere)
- Duration ~ 2 to 4W weeks (end of Data Collection)
- Preview Meeting
- Creation of your individual business case
- Presentation of your business case (On-prem vs. AWS-Lift & Shift Scenario vs. AWS Rightsized Scenario)
AWS OLA is a tool-based IT inventory assessment. After the assessment, we can compare your on-prem costs with an AWS Lift & Shift Scenario and an AWS Rightsized Scenario (Opex).
For the tool-based assessment, we use – according to the underlying AWS Migration Best Practices – proven and robust tools such as the Migration Evaluator (focus on on-prem environments) or Cloudamize (for customers already using cloud-based environments today).
Within the scope of your individual IT Inventory Assessment, the actual utilization, storage usage of your systems and the traffic during operation, as well as your costs for Microsoft licenses will be analyzed over a representative period of at least 2 and better up to 4 weeks.
The result is your individual business case (TCO) and ultimately the basis for your strategic decision – for or against a migration to the AWS Cloud.

YOUR BENEFITS FROM OUR SOLUTION
100% FREE OF CHARGE
OLA is a free service provided by AWS and tecRacer. Your investment is limited to a little working time.
NO HIDDEN COSTS
It would of course be a great pity if you do not wish to have any further discussions with us after the OLA. But even in this case, we won’t charge you.
INDIVIDUAL BUSINESS CASE
The result of the OLA is your individual business case (TCO). After the OLA, you have a solid basis for a strategic decision – for or against a migration to the AWS cloud.
We perform a tool-based assessment of your IT infrastructure. After the assessment, we compare your on-prem costs with an AWS Lift & Shift Scenario and an AWS Rightsized Scenario (Opex). Good to know: Righsizing can achieve cost reductions of 30% on average. (Source: Migration Evaluator – formerly TSO Logic).
MIGRATION ACCELERATION FUNDINGS
In the event that you decide to migrate to the AWS Cloud, we can apply for funding support from AWS, such as the Migration Acceleration Program (MAP).
