Azure Migrate now supports assessments for Azure VMware Solution, providing even more options for you to plan your migration to Azure. Azure VMware Solution (AVS) enables you to run VMware natively on Azure. AVS provides a dedicated Software Defined Data Center (SDDC) for your VMware environment on Azure, ensuring you can leverage familiar VMware tools and investments, while modernizing applications overtime with integration to Azure native services. Delivered and operated as a service, your private cloud environment provides all compute, networking, storage, and software required to extend and migrate your on-premises VMware environments to the Azure.
Previously, Azure Migrate tooling provided support for migrating Windows and Linux servers to Azure Virtual Machines, as well as support for database, web application, and virtual desktop scenarios. Now, you can use the migration hub to assess machines for migrating to AVS as well.
With the Azure Migrate: Server Assessment tool, you can analyze readiness, Azure suitability, cost planning, performance-based rightsizing, and application dependencies for migrating to AVS. The AVS assessment feature is currently available in public preview.
This expanded support allows you to get an even more comprehensive assessment of your datacenter. Compare cloud costs between Azure native VMs and AVS to make the best migration decisions for your business. Azure Migrate acts as an intelligent hub, gathering insights throughout the assessment to make suggestions – including tooling recommendations for migrating VM or VMware workloads.
How to Perform an AVS Assessment
You can use all the existing assessment features that Azure Migrate offers for Azure Virtual Machines to perform an AVS assessment. Plan your migration to Azure VMware Solution (AVS) with up to 35K VMware servers in one Azure Migrate project.
