Virtana announced its expanded offering of Virtana Platform on Amazon Web Services (AWS) Marketplace.

Offering end user customers a unified SaaS platform on Marketplace, the solution leverages a "know before you go" approach with high-definition data collection on-premises, and delivers precision observability, reduces cloud costs, and de-risks public cloud migration to AWS.

Virtana Platform is designed to provide Global 2000 enterprises the precise data-driven ability to identify, de-risk, and prioritize workloads, accelerating the move of the right workloads at the right time in an optimized form to AWS. The migration-focused Software as a Service (SaaS) partner has a history of expertise in precisely understanding the existing customer application workloads that are candidates for migration.

With customers’ increasing need to de-risk and have precision visibility when migrating workloads to AWS, exacerbated by the pandemic, Virtana has fast-tracked Virtana Platform inclusion in AWS Marketplace — moving beyond cloud cost visibility to deliver a unified observability platform for hybrid cloud.

Ryan Broadwell, Global Director of ISVs at AWS, commented, “We look forward to seeing Virtana’s footprint expand in AWS Marketplace to support even more enterprise customers looking to optimize their move to the cloud and enable a strong digital transformation.”

Virtana chose to build its platform natively on AWS to ensure the highest levels of alignment as both services advance to meet ever-evolving customer requirements. This relationship with AWS and the SaaS platform availability give customers a unique artificial intelligence (AI)-powered roadmap for optimizing digital transformation and cloud enablement, along with true visibility throughout the digital transformation journey.

Kash Shaikh, President and CEO of Virtana, commented, “Data is the currency in this digital era, and it is time for customers to take it to the bank. We are proud of our growing relationship with AWS, supporting and enabling customers to know before they go to the cloud. Virtana’s SaaS platform (now available in AWS Marketplace) delivers a unique approach to observability that unifies AIOps, cloud cost optimization, and de-risks cloud migration using high-definition precision data insights.”

Shaikh added, “The combination of AWS best practices and our deep observability and insights are leading to stronger migration methodologies, reductions in cloud expenses, and acceleration of a more powerful digital transformation for our Global 2000 customers.”

As a member of AWS’ Advanced Technology Partner Program, Virtana is working with System Integrators (SI) aligned with AWS, leveraging their expertise and methodologies around migration. SIs are able to build Digital Transformation offerings built on capabilities of both platforms, delivering high-value, cost effective modernization strategies to the broader market. In turn, customers can meet their migration goals and business objectives, and get their move to cloud right the first time.

Virtana Platform is now available on AWS Marketplace and will continue to work to continue to deliver the best customer transformational journey through working with the Migration Acceleration Team, the SaaS Factory Team, individual product teams for Migration Evaluator, and the Business Case Analysis Team.
