Microsoft is announcing new Azure Migration resources and tools for its customers. These tools when combined offer customers to better take advantage of the cloud and the existing applications and infrastructure when going after a Hybrid Cloud approach.
When are you considering migrating some or all your applications to the cloud, this action requires careful planning (moving on-premises data). You need to understand how much it will cost, how to size your environment, what virtual machine options to choose, and more.
In order to help you tap in to the power of Hybrid Cloud, Microsoft has come up some of the new tools and resources to get started.
- A free Cloud Migration Assessment, which helps you discover the servers across your IT environment, analyze their hardware configurations, and provides a detailed report including the estimated cost benefits of moving to Microsoft Azure.
- Starting today, you can activate your Azure Hybrid Use Benefit directly in the Azure Management Portal, simplifying your path to the cloud in the most cost effective way possible.
- Azure Site Recovery is a tool you can use to migrate virtual machines to Azure, and it’s a great way to move applications whether they are running on AWS, VMware, Hyper-V or on physical servers.
