Rich migration planning

Build a solid plan for migrating your on-premises VMware and Hyper-V virtual machines (VMs). Estimate the costs of running datacenters in Azure by assessing up to 35,000 VMware VMs and 10,000 Hyper-V VMs per project. Check migration readiness, and get actionable guidance to help you save costs. Model cost benefits of Azure Hybrid Benefit and Reserved Virtual Machine Instances. And visualize your application dependencies to create move groups of related VMs.

Simplified server migration

Confidently migrate your on-premises VMware or Hyper-V, AWS, or Google Cloud VMs and physical servers to Azure infrastructure as a service (IaaS). For VMware, choose between agent-less and agent-based options. For Hyper-V, migrate agentless (by default). Incur zero impact on your production environment during migration testing by testing in an isolated Azure environment. Achieve near-zero downtime for on-premises applications by planning a migration window.
