Optimization and Licensing Assessment

Optimize your license and compute costs before and after migration

Discover the best path to cloud migration and cost reduction with the AWS Optimization and Licensing Assessment (AWS OLA). This complimentary program empowers both new and existing customers to assess and optimize their on-premises and cloud environments, reduce required instances, and enhance resource efficiency.

Analyze your actual resource use, third-party licensing, and application dependencies with an AWS OLA. The data gathered will help you make informed decisions for your cloud journey. Request an AWS OLA and let our expert team guide you.

The AWS OLA delivers a comprehensive report that models your deployment options based on actual resource use and your existing licensing entitlements, helping you uncover potential cost savings through our flexible licensing options.


Rightsize your resources

Optimize resource utilization of your workloads with our tool-based discovery approach. Our tooling offers insight into compute resources and helps to identify the best Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2), Amazon Relational Database Service (Amazon RDS), or VMware Cloud on AWS instance size and type for each workload. Determine the right mix of on-demand and spot instances, Bring your Own Licenses (BYOL) and license-included instances, as well as dedicated hosts and savings plans tailored for your environment.

Reduce costs

Running workloads in the cloud requires fewer instances and licenses due to the elasticity of the cloud. Optimizing your cloud infrastructure is key to reducing costs, and performing an AWS OLA offers 60% greater license efficiency. Overprovisioning third-party licensing increases your total cost of ownership. Use the recommendations from an AWS OLA to maximize value and configure instances to require fewer licenses. Adapt your on-premises licensing strategy for a smoother cloud migration.

Explore flexible licensing options

Avoid unnecessary licensing costs with the results of the AWS OLA. Model licensing scenarios, including license-included or BYOL instances, for flexibility in managing seasonal workloads and agile experimentation. An AWS OLA models both dedicated and license-included environments, letting you pay for what you use to get the most out of your cloud compute and licensing costs.
