Migrating Application (front+back end) from AWS to Azure

Copper Contributor

Community - I'd like your opinion on this:

 

Migrating a whole Application (front+back end) from AWS to Azure and between Azure subscribtions, is it easer to move it as VMs or Containers?

It’s a very broad question but will try to answer it in short, Both approaches are possible - if the source application is running in a VM (either Windows or Linux (limited version)) then ASR (Azure Site Recovery) can be used to migration from the source in AWS to target in Azure. If the applications are running in the source environment in a container, then the container image can be published to Azure container registry and then pulled down into an Azure Container.

 

VMs to move Within subscriptions, use the Azure portal or PowerShell commandlets.
