Azure Migrate

Azure Migrate helps you to discover on-premises workloads and assess them for Azure suitability. You can also find the cost to run the workload in Azure.

1. Discovery and assessment for on-premises virtual machines
2. Inbuilt dependency mapping for high-confidence discovery of multi-tier applications
3. Intelligent rightsizing to Azure virtual machines
4. Compatibility reporting with guidelines for re-mediating potential issues
5. Integration with Azure Database Management Service for database discovery and migration

If you have a technical issue, please open a post on the MSDN forum.

How can we improve Microsoft Azure?

  1. Change geographical region for a given resource

    A while back, you did not have a data centre in the UK, so I deployed all my resources to the North Europe region as that was the nearest. Now you do have a UK region, but all my resources are in the North Europe data centre. To migrate everything closer to home, is a real pain in the back side at the moment. Please provide an easy way to migrate across data centres difference resources such as Web Apps, Databases, Storage containers, etc.

  2. Move resource(s) to another location.

    I wish I could move resource(s) to another location just like I can move it now to another Resource Group or Subscription.

    For example, I just created a new Function App, with a new Storage Account and put them in a new Resource Group. After all resources were provisioned, I realized that I forget to picked up a location I want. Instead of South Central US, I need them to be in West US.

    It would be super handy if I can just move them all to the West US location. Instead, I have to delete resources and recreate them…

  4. I want to migrate Hyper-v datacenters using Azure Migrate

    Today Azure Migrate can only discover VMware environments. We want to be able to discover Hyper-v environments and assess+migrate them to Azure.

  6. Spreadsheet pricing

    would be great to have a spreadsheet import for Azure pricing. There are many times where customers want to know how much their VMs will cost to run, but they don't or can't install anything. If there was a way to take a spreadsheet with CPU, Memory, and disk space info and just import that list to the Azure Pricing Calculator or Azure Migrate to get pricing info, that would be perfect.

  7. Automated migration assessment tool from one subscription to another.

    when a customer wants to move from subscriptions like Pay-As-You-Go to CSP we used to use this tool http://azurecspassessment.azurewebsites.net/ for assessment. Since the tool is shut down it has become very difficult to assess the resources manually. It is taking hours when moving a big customer from PAYG to CSP. Some resources in PAYG are not supported in CSP or having dependencies. This is creating a huge impact on time, labor, and cost (down time in re-deploying the services). Please do review and hope you come up with a new tool.

  8. Limit VM collection scope to folders

    We are running clusters with lots of VMs (1700 in one case) but organise the VMs into folders which contain VMs that belong to a specific customer. At the moment the scope for data collection is limited to selecting a Cluster, but no more granular than that. So if I create an Azure Migrate project for a customer with 100 VMs in their folder, it still has to collect data for all 1700 VMs in the cluster.

    I have tried using a user account to connect to vCenter that has read-only access to just the folder containing the VMs I…

  9. Machine Selection for Assessment

    After discovery, choosing machines for a group is very difficult. It displays 9 machines at a time, select all doesn't allow you to unselect individual machines, and you can't search for parts of machines names to then select a group. Would be great if the selection process for groupings offered more customization. I am doing an assessment now if you want to see what is going on.

    We are planning to add more customization/filtering option for grouping in Azure Migrate. Filtering by name, OS, IP Address is something that we currently support. We are planning to add filtering by vCenter host/cluster/folder, it would really help us if you could comment on the criteria that you use for grouping VMs.

  10. Add support for Azure Databox

    Integrate Azure Migrate with Azure Databox for Offline Migration for large VM estate.
    VHD files should be placed on Databox and after Import to Azure, only Deltas should be fetched from on-premises running VMs.

  11. Currently Virtual machines created from Marketplace resources with plans attached cannot be moved between subscriptions or Resource Group.

    Currently, Virtual machines created from Marketplace resources with plans attached cannot be moved between subscriptions or Resource Group.

    It would be very helpful if you could add this feature as soon as possible. Due to this limitation, customer's have to set up the VM from scratch.

  16. Mark VM as SQL

    It would be good to be able to mark a discovered VM as being OS Only, SQL Std or SQL Ent. Then the SQL license costs could be included in the costs on the assessments generated

  17. Migration Service needs access to Internet

    no documentation states that the Migration service needs constant access to Internet. When using Azure as an extension of a Datacenter, close access to Internet. That is a problem.

  18. Subscription transfer with marketplace service

    Please enable the option to transfer subscriptions with marketplace services.

    Unfortunately, the transfer of marketplace service barracudanetworks:barracuda-ng-firewall:byol v1836 is not available at this moment. In order to transfer the Microsoft Azure Enterprise subscription, it is required to delete the marketplace service.

    All the news and payment details will be send to the Account Administrator email by system design. The only option to change the Account Administrator email of a subscription is to transfer it to another account.

  20. Ability to create NSG rules as part of the Azure Migration

    Ability for Azure Migration tool to create NSG rules as part of discovery phase when utilizing VMM agency. This would help in having NSG ready before migrating VM to Azure. Possibly group servers into different Tiers (App, Web, SQL) and then be able to apply created NSG rules against those tiers.
