Server Migration to Azure
To optimize the assessment process and discover servers in your datacenter, choose to deploy the Azure Migrate Appliance to the on-premises environment or use CMDB information to import into Azure Migrate via CSV. This enables you to identify the servers and workloads you need to assess, including:
- VMware VMs, Hyper-V VMs,physical servers
- XEN and KVM systems, with first-party Movere or partner tools. (Movere is now part of Microsoft)
- Cloud-to-cloud workloads, with Azure Migrate: Server Assessment and Movere or partner tools
Your server assessment will let you know if your VMs or servers are ready to run on Azure. If ready, you will receive recommendations on sizing Azure VMs. Before starting the Azure server migration, you will also know how much it will cost to run your VMs or servers in Azure. And last, but not least, your dependency analysis will give you visibility into what app and system dependencies may break during your migration.
