This week’s release includes changes to our very popular reporting around Cloud Readiness and
ARC Disk Utilization. We have also made usability improvements to our “Edit Report” feature, and
added greater flexibility in sizing and pricing for AWS cloud.
Consolidated On-Prem and ARC Sizing pages
First, we want to inform you that we changed our terminology from “on-prem” to “Inventory” to
better describe the source of the data rather than the type of environment scanned, mainly since
users can inventory resources in the cloud which are obviously not on-prem. Second, choosing
between Inventory (formerly On-Prem) and ARC sizing has moved from menu options to a
selector on the report pages under Cloud Readiness. Now you can simply choose from VM Sizing,
VM Pricing, and Storage pricing and once in the report, you can use the “Sizing Options” drop
down to choose between Inventory and ARC as well as the Region. This has been changed for
both Azure and AWS sizing and pricing.
ARC\Windows & Linux\Disk Utilization
We changed the disk utilization report to consolidate Throughput and IOPs onto the same report with a selector to make it easy to change your reporting without having to traverse the menu
System. Just choose Disk Utilization and choose Throughput or IOPs at the top of the report.
Edit Report Redesign
We have made usability improvements to the Edit Report dialog. First, we have added a new option to freeze the first column of the report. Simply click the slider to freeze or unfreeze the column. Moving any of the columns to the top spot will make that column the one frozen.
And clicking the Search icon will now bring up all available fields and you can continue to select and move columns as you have done before. Moreover, you can re-arrange columns in the table itself. Simply hold on a column header and drag it around.
Improvements for AWS Sizing and Pricing
Movere now supports all 13 pricing options (Commit Levels) when looking at AWS Cloud Readiness. In addition to On-Demand, there is support for different 1yr and 3yr commits reserved
In addition, users can now add up to 3 additional columns to the report to compare different options side by side. Simply select the “Add Commit Comparison” button and then choose one of
the pricing options available.
Movere updated comments for AWS Disk Profiling exceptions including type io1. When the storage
sizing exceeds what is recommended, a comment will give important, additional details regarding the recommendation.
For AWS Cloud Readiness, Movere now includes Number of attached disks, IOPS and Throughput
per VM type in our cloud sizing algorithm (in addition to CPU and RAM which were already being
Movere added support for Provisioned IOPS SSD EBS type (io1). AWS describes io1 as the
highest-performance SSD volume for mission-critical low-latency or high-IO workloads such as
SQL or noSQL databases.
Power User Tip
Wanting to move multiple items together when editing a report? In the Edit report dialog, double
Click the hamburger (4 horizontal lines) for each field you want in the group, then Movere will
move that whole section as a group. The grouping is temporary and just to speed up moving sets
of fields together.
The new Edit Report features are found on the following pages:
