Planning and assessment tools lead you through right-sizing, remodeling, and rearchitecting when needed using built-in capacity planning and intelligent algorithms.

Extend your on-premises infrastructure to the cloud for a truly consistent hybrid solution. Get there faster—and smarter—with flexible and powerful tools that help ensure a successful workload migration and validation of all cloud applications and dependencies.

Accelerate digital transformation with the hybrid cloud

Transition to the cloud using your existing Windows Server licenses with Software Assurance—and reap the rewards of cloud technology. Whether you’re moving a few workloads, or migrating your datacenter, the Azure Hybrid Use Benefit saves you money as you move to the cloud.

Take Azure data migration tools for a test run

When it’s time to move your applications and data to the cloud, there are two limited previews available to streamline the process. One helps you migrate your existing on-premises database to Azure. The other, a new deployment option in Azure SQL Database, offers robust and secure instance-level features, and the ability to move hundreds of application databases. Each comes with collaborative support from our engineering team during the preview period.
