We're an implementor, and therefore we deploy this solution for our clients. As a use case example, one client is a service provider in Bolivia, and they deploy an ISP for their customers. They need a solution that includes the cloud server solution of Cisco with an ACI and an ASX-T solution. It basically becomes an in-house solution for the customer.

We're only using it because we create tenants and each OU inside of our company is with our DevOps. With CloudCenter, you are able to use their own VMs and manage their own workload.

We've actually used a private cloud within our company. Typically, we needed a single pane of glass to provide infrastructure services to our clients. CloudCenter is really at the center of everything we built for our data center to keep its initiative. We're really using it to push applications in DMS into the different clouds, as part of the recent additions of other functionalities within our five companies. Since we were an existing company, our customers are still waiting for the pipeline upgrade. A lot of the new features are really interesting, so we are trying to go towards a public cloud. We need to be able to get all the costs, computational features, and the actual Orchestrator to be able to more easily orchestrate across the different targets. We have multiple targets and that's going to help us actually. The tool is really at the center of our whole digital transformation. That is how people will consume infrastructure in the future.

The licensing, as I understand it, isn't too much, as we're working end to end with Cisco. We have an SLA in place that provides us good pricing and they want us to keep our contracts with them. That said, I don't know the exact cost structure of this solution.

The total cost of having the VM(s) in the cloud. Cost of infrastructure, connectivity, data moves and cloud management tools.

Sorry for the late reply. TCO is important, but you have to review more than just cost, here is a short list: What are the advantages moving to Cloud Computing? Will the move help our business? Will the cloud migration be cost efficient? Can I reduce the number of servers by moving to the cloud? What will be our storage requirements on day 1 vs 1 year, 2 year, etc? How will we perform backup and recovery of the envirnoment during and after the move? How will we access company information during and after the move? What Security in the Cloud will be required? How will we limit Data Attacks / Hacking? Is our data shared with other clients? We moved 120 servers in 6 months time frame. Some of the servers required zero down time, while others required 48 hours. So the the most important aspect for us was a couple things, one - will the move help improve our business and reduce our expenses; two - how are we going to function after the move?. The first one is simple, but very important. While the second one seems easy to answer, but there are some gotchas! Printing, simple yet very print from your office now and pick up the paper just like clock work, then you move and there is a 2 min delay in the print jobs...true story. We had very large print jobs that were overlooked by the analysis team and nobody paid attention to the fact that several workers were printing these large documents. This also goes for CAD systems, video editing, etc. So, pay attention to the big things, but don't stop there, complete your analysis of the entire business as a whole and idenitfy single points of failures, items that impact the business, special case scenerios, etc. All in all, do your homework and the migration will go on with little impact to the business.
