Discover and assess on-premises VMs
Discover information about your VMware virtual machines, including CPU and memory utilisation, disk details and networks. Group machines for migration assessment with higher confidence by setting up dependency visualisation to view dependencies of a single VM or a group of VMs.
Plan your migration with confidence
Get advice on right-sizing your cloud resources to proceed with confidence and better control your migration costs based on efficient utilisation. If Azure Migrate identifies specific VMs as problematic, follow step-by-step guidance to overcome the obstacles and help keep your migration on track.
Easily migrate your workloads to Azure
After running a cloud assessment with Azure Migrate, begin migrating your on-premises VMs to Azure using services including Azure Site Recovery and Database Migration Service. Visit the Azure Migration Center to learn more and find discovery and data migration software tools from our partners.
Set up and discover
Discover VMs running in VMware
Begin your migration by discovering the virtual machines running in your on-premises VMware environment.
Download the virtual appliance
Download the Azure Migrate Collector appliance, packaged with all the prerequisites to enable friction-free discovery of the on-premises environment.
Complete the setup
Configure the virtual appliance to start the discovery of the on-premises environment. The appliance collects VM configuration and utilisation data used to assess the VMs for migration to Azure.
Discover your virtual machines
The discovered VMs are now available for analysis in the Azure Migrate project.
Visualise machine dependencies
View the dependencies of a discovered machine.
Group the machines
Group the discovered machines to plan migration of an application as a logical unit.
Visualise group dependencies
Get a deep understanding of the application’s dependencies and detect additional dependencies to avoid surprises during your migration.
Customise your assessment
Plan your migration to Azure by customising an assessment based on your needs. Drill into specific assessment views, including Azure migration readiness and cost estimates.
View readiness status
View the Azure readiness status of each on-premises machine, see remediation guidance for readiness issues, and learn the best Azure VM and configuration to meet the needs of the on-prem machine.
Estimate your costs
Understand the costs of running the virtual machines in Azure and adjust the assessment properties to meet your Azure plan and region requirements. Export the assessment report and share it with relevant stakeholders.
