Consider all of your options: and choose the best combination of cloud and local workloads to meet your user’s, budget, and availability needs and requirements!

Explore scale up or scale-down cloud scenarios easily: Simply supply CRE the percentage you’d like to scale by and see pricing information for your hypothetical DR site or your 200% larger production site … in one click!

Cloud Option

CRE Makes Sense of Your Cloud Options

It’s your data, anonymized. Yes, it uses encrypted SSL, and yes, it’s secure … but the only 100% security guarantee is not transmitting sensitive data in the first place … so CRE never does!

Our proprietary processes analyze your workloads, stripping out all proprietary information. Anonymous, but critical workload details are then matched (in the cloud!) to hundreds of various cloud instance combinations, zeroing in on those that fit them best. Your workload names are then re-matched with those recommendations – locally!

Proprietary information never leaves your site! And best of all, Device42 makes it easy, pricing multiple scenarios for you using all available data!
