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. Offer migration project hosting in EU region

    Due to regulatory reasons larger organisations are reluctant to ship (even) meta data regarding their systems landscape out of EU.

    • Document improvement for vcenter statistics settings

      In document "https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/migrate/concepts-collector"
      there is confusing statements about the vCenter statistics settings.

      One-time discovery
      For historical performance-data collection, you need to set the statistics settings in vCenter Server to level three.

      Continuous discovery

      This model doesn't depend on the vCenter Server statistics settings to collect performance data.

      Later in document there is no difference between collection modes:
      "To collect performance data for storage and networking, the statistics settings for vCenter Server must be set to level three.
      If the level is lower than three, discovery works but the performance data won't be collected. Some counters might be collected,…

              • 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…

                  • 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.

                        Support for physical servers is under review and will be enabled in future. Regarding dependency visualization of physical servers, the workaround is to install the dependency agents on the physical machines and then visualize it in the Service Map UI outside of Azure Migrate. (You can access the workspace from the Azure Migrate project essentials pane).

                        Does azure migrate can discover application installed on Linux Virtual Machines?
                        Also why i cannot see the hostname of the machines after discovery?

                          Can you please share details regarding how you plan to use the information, we are planning to enable discovery of applications running inside the VM, but it would help us prioritize if you can share details regarding how you use the information.

                              • 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.
