Announcing Azure Migrate: A New Solution for Switching from VMWare
Many early adopters of VMware are now looking to move their workloads to Azure, but are hesitant to commit to the switch because they fear it will cause a variety of problems. To help ease these fears and provide a seamless transfer, Microsoft is launching a new set of services called Azure Migrate. Now, it is easier than ever to migrate data, infrastructures and applications from VMware to the Microsoft Azure cloud. With customized processes, Azure Migrate will protect your data, allow you to modernize your applications and meet the unique needs of your business.
Here are just a few of the highlights of the new Azure Migrate services:
• Discovery and assessment. During this initial phase, Azure Migrate will discover and visualize dependencies across all VM applications so that the migration is completely organized and prioritized in a way that ultimately saves money.
• Migration. It only takes a few clicks to migrate VMware without having to worry about excessive downtime.
• Resource and cost optimization. These tools allow you to track spending, forecast future costs and develop an optimized plan that will ultimately allow you to enjoy experience significant savings when it comes to operating costs.
Keep in mind that there are certain workloads that are more difficult to migrate. However, there are solutions available and any challenge can be overcome so that you can enjoy the power and flexibility of Azure tools.
