HealthCheck for Azure observes network traffic for a two-week
period, assembles the data it collects, and then provides an assessment report.
The report details a summary of the network infrastructure and traffic,
including both physical and virtual network components.
With the report in hand, you can present your customers with

The report provides a chart that compares three pricing plans reflecting three approaches to hardware mapping:
Following the TCO report section, each of the three mapping plans is broken out with additional columns:
