Over the last few months I’ve been doing a “summer tour” of user groups and delivering a talk entitled “Start your datacentre transformation journey with Azure Migrate”, during my talk I mainly focus on customer journeys that are moving resources from on prem to the cloud. However, due to some questions I’ve had from the audience I want to change focus a little and share with you the ability to use Azure Migrate to help you if you are looking to move from another cloud provider to Azure.
The first step of any migration journey regardless of your starting point and destination is an assessment, gathering information about your current environment. I talked about it why I think it’s so important and what information you should be gathering in my Datacentre Migration Checklist blog post.
The Azure Migrate: Server Assessment Tool can help not only assess your VMware, and Hyper-V virtual servers, or physical servers but it can also assess those living in other clouds. And in this video I show you the process of assessing your AWS virtual machines with a view to moving them to Azure. You can watch the full video here or on Microsoft Channel 9.
