SentillaSentilla® Corporation, the leading provider of data center analytics, today announced that its award-winning Sentilla® software now includes Sentilla Analytics for Cloud, the first ever ability to perform predictive and financial analysis on transitioning from physical to virtual and cloud infrastructure. The new predictive analytics tool allows IT organizations to determine the impact of migrating existing applications or deploying new applications in virtual clusters, private cloud or public cloud offerings. Sentilla Analytics for Cloud also includes details on the impact of capital spend on equipment, operating expense on personnel, maintenance, power consumption and software licensing, along with other metrics.

While cloud computing is a top priority for enterprises of all sizes there is rampant confusion around the cost and transition strategy for cloud infrastructure. Organizations determining their cloud strategy lack visibility into the systems, applications and infrastructure to gain the information needed to properly evaluate the business impact of migrating to a more flexible infrastructure. Although most IT organizations agree that Infrastructure as a Service(IaaS) or Platform as a Service(PaaS) infrastructure will drive down costs and deliver more services faster and cheaper, the exact business impact has not been quantifiable for specific environments until Sentilla Analytics for Cloud.

“At first glance, cloud computing appears to be about a very simple idea – consuming and or delivering services from ‘the cloud’. However, there are many issues regarding types of cloud computing and the scope of deployment that make the details not nearly so simple,” says Yefim V. Natis, vice president and distinguished analyst at Gartner Research. “The insight helping organizations extract business value from cloud computing will be a highly demanded skill in most IT and business planning organizations, enSentilla® Corporation, the leading provider of data center analytics, today announced that its award-winning Sentilla® software now includes Sentilla Analytics for Cloud, the first ever ability to perform predictive and financial analysis on transitioning from physical to virtual and cloud infrastructure.
