The RISC Networks CloudScape Strategic Discovery is a services and technology engagement that will jump start your Cloud and Data Center Transformation initiative(s).

Special Service

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 Strategic Discovery must be scoped and priced according to the customer’s environment and specific requirements.
