Bulk-import based Azure and AWS price comparison

In recent months, I’ve worked with customers to quickly generate Azure and AWS pricing estimates, a critical step for securing vendor funding in lift-and-shift migration projects. However, moving assessment data between migration and pricing tools can be challenging.

Buying my new Google Domain and getting started with Workspace and GCP

When you register a domain it is a big deal. It is your e-mail address, it is connected to your organization, you will use it in Cloud IAM and connected APIs. You will type it in CLI and pick it from GUI multiple times. I added my experiences with Microsoft Azure/M365/Teams and AWS Route 53/Chime as well.

GCP

Let’s get GCP certified: this is how I started.

My Friends keep suggesting that GCP is a cool thing. I trust them. So let’s do this. But how to start? I collected links and materials for you to understand how you can get your GCP exams done.

Got $400 at GCP: I am preparing for Migrate for Compute Engine test

I have activated my GCP sandbox. Received an extra $100! Impressive welcome screen with offerings. The first service I am going to test is Migrate for Compute Engine API to better understand how to move complex workloads from VMware. How different sources such as Hyper-V (Azure Stack HCI) or KVM are supported?

About Me

Who is Attila?

I need to admit, I was lucky all my life. When relational DBs and Oracle SQL tuning was popular I was there. Later when virtualization came to our town, I was there. I learned how to run an entire region working at a US startup, quite self-driven. I enjoyed DIB in a global organization at Microsoft. What’s Next?

Source System

The perfect source system for testing cloud migration tools (intro)

In the year 2019, I built an advanced VMware and Azure-based lab to teach my Microsoft colleagues on hybrid scenarios. I am working on a deployment of something similar and even more advanced these days to support testing migration tools and understand how workloads get into the Cloud.

VMware

VMware landing zones in the Cloud (Intro)

VMware is not just a legacy source system with VMs to modernize, it is about understanding how a complex on-premises solution including cloud-native workloads (Tanzu) potentially lands in public cloud(s).

Hands-on Lab blog

I am running an advanced multi-cloud hands-on lab environment and sharing my experiences on cutting-edge technology to save time for everyone interested.

My primary instest is migration and modernization of VMs, containers and database workloads.

Interview videos

I am lucky to have great friends at both Microsoft Azure, Google Cloud Platform, Amazon Web Services, Oracle Cloud and VMware. We agreed to record quick 2-3 minute videos seeking together the future of IT workloads.

About me

My history, attitude, energy and ownership keep my interest in the data center & desktop evolution of the next decade. Mission-critical production workloads, architecture design, troubleshooting and helping others to do better.
