Guidance reports to help validate migration to AWS Nitro-based cloud instances
The Nitro system provides bare metal capabilities that eliminate virtualization overhead. It's an ideal fit for applications that need low-level hardware features or a non-virtualized, highly secure environment. However, it comes with a higher cost and not all applications may require this capability.
Challenge: When applications hit the limits on read/write throughput, teams lack the visibility to decide which volume they have to choose - bigger volume with better IOPS or migrate to the Nitro system.
Solution: Amazon Elastic Block Store (EBS) metrics that are offered currently for Nitro-based instances of EC2 and RDS, give you visibility into whether you are hitting the limits of read/write throughput. That serves as a trigger to upgrade. Guidance reports will further validate the choice of an upgrade by analyzing the historical vs. current utilization.
