When moving your AIX workloads from on-premise to the cloud, there are two big-ticket items to initially consider for planning and execution:
First, get a list of all the LPARs that are candidates for migration and capture the essential attributes like CPU allocation, memory, storage, IOPS, and expected network bandwidth required for each server. If you attempt to do a straight “lift and shift,” you may or may not be able to do an exact mapping in a pure self-service model. Why? Because cloud vendors typically have “safety caps” on some resources that prevent an untrained cloud user or a run-away automation script from doing unwanted actions.
