Technology giant Microsoft has recently announced new Azure Migration tools and resources to help organisations tap into the power of the hybrid cloud to optimise their business.
The offerings include a free Cloud Migration Assessment to help organisations discover the servers across their IT environment, analyse their hardware configurations, and get a detailed report including the estimated cost benefits of moving to Microsoft Azure.
“Now organisations can activate their Azure hybrid use benefit directly in the Azure management portal, simplifying their path to the cloud in the most cost effective way possible. With the Azure hybrid use benefit they can save up to 40 per cent with Windows server licenses that include software assurance,” the company said.
The Azure site recovery tool helps organisations to migrate virtual machines to Azure, and helps in moving applications whether they are running on AWS, VMware, Hyper-V or on physical servers, it added.
With Azure, organisations can get consistent hybrid capabilities across cloud and on-premises environments, offering them the flexibility to choose the optimal location for each application, based on their business requirements and reducing the complexity of moving to the cloud.
