On the Migration timeline, pricing, and discounts page, you can set up the migration timeline.
Migration waves take time to plan, schedule, and execute. Also, the advanced migration waves tend to take longer to execute than the initial wave. Gauging the cost over multiple years provides a long-term projection and a more transparent cost.
Before you begin
Set up the migration timeline and apply discounts
Optional: To change the pricing track used to calculate the estimate, in the Pricing track section, click Change, and then select a pricing track. By default, Google Cloud Migration Center cost estimation uses the 3-year committed use discount pricing track.
If you're eligible for discounts, then click Apply the Enterprise Agreement (EA), Cloud Commitment Agreement (CCA), or service (family or SKU) discounts. In the additional fields that appear, enter the applicable discounts for the Google Cloud services.
To specify the total time you need to prepare your migration, in the Time required to do migration section, select the landing zone start and end times.
By default, Google Cloud Migration Center uses a 5-year migration timeline and the following values for expected cumulative completion of the migration each year:
- 15% in year 1
- 30% in year 2
- 50% in year 3
- 75% in year 4
- 100% in year 5
If you want to update the migration timeline, then in the Timelines section, follow these steps:
Update the expectations for cumulative percentage completion of the migration for each year.
Add or remove a year from the migration timeline, and update the expectations for cumulative percentage completion of the migration for each year accordingly.
