About PlanForCloudPlanForCloud enables sophisticated modeling of the components of cloud deployments, including servers, storage, databases and data transfers, as well as usage scenarios that incorporate growth, seasonality and other variability in the consumption of cloud resources. Deployments are run through a simulation to create a detailed 3-year cost report that enables you to accurately forecast costs for new deployments or budget for future usage. You do not need to be on the cloud and we do not require any cloud credentials.
We are a part of RightScale, the leader in cloud management.
