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.
