Azure Migrate offers streamlined migration, modernization, and optimization services. This includes end-to-end pre-migration, discovery, evaluations, and scaling of on-premises infrastructure, data, and apps. Azure Migrate's flexible framework can be extended by integrating third-party technologies.

For transferring on-premises web applications to the Azure App Service, Azure Migrate provides a unique functionality that allows enterprises to migrate servers, virtual desktops, and related data from on-premises to Azure. By using Data Migration Service, Azure Migrate can assist with the migration of on-premises databases to Azure SQL databases or Azure SQL managed Instances.


It provides the following features:

  • Unified migration platform: A single portal to start, run, and track your migration to Azure.
  • Range of tools: A range of tools for assessment and migration. Azure Migrate tools include Azure Migrate: Discovery and assessment and Azure Migrate: Server Migration. Azure Migrate also integrates with other Azure services and tools, and with independent software vendor (ISV) offerings.
  • Assessment, migration and modernization: In the Azure Migrate hub, you can assess, migrate, and modernize:
  • Servers, databases and web apps: Assess on-premises servers including web apps and SQL Server instances and migrate them to Azure virtual machines or Azure VMware Solution (AVS) (Preview).
  • Databases: Assess on-premises SQL Server instances and databases to migrate them to an SQL Server on an Azure VM or an Azure SQL Managed Instance or to an Azure SQL Database.
  • Web applications: Assess on-premises web applications and migrate them to Azure App Service and Azure Kubernetes Service.
  • Virtual desktops: Assess your on-premises virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) and migrate it to Azure Virtual Desktop.
  • Data: Migrate large amounts of data to Azure quickly and cost-effectively using Azure Data Box products.
