Accelerator Service Overview
Proven platform that over 10,000 enterprise organizations have relied on to solve complex problems and plan strategic business projects.
The RISC Networks CloudScape Accelerator Service (Level 2 Handoff) provides customers with the information that is critical to mitigate risk, execute quality planning, and affect knowledgeable decision making for cloud and data center migration initiatives. The result is a fully populated CloudScape platform, with application stacks that have been defined and validated. This provides an application-centric view of the environment that can be leveraged to make data driven decisions for cloud and data center migration projects, security reviews, and many other use cases.

RISC Networks can additionally work with the customer to include Flow data into the engagement. Flow data will provide traffic rate details that can be used to further understand the network impact and bandwidth requirements associated with workload migration.
Flow data can be derived from a wide array of sources including, but not limited to, layer 3 network devices, VMware Distributed Switches, and Packet Capture. As such, the inclusion of Flow data into the CloudScape Accelerator Service must be scoped and priced according to the customer’s environment and specific requirements.
