VMware to Azure Migration
Migration. Management. Easy.
If your organization currently uses VMs, moving your infrastructure to the cloud is likely on the horizon. Microsoft Azure cloud infrastructure offers the ideal migration path, for a number of reasons.
But migrating from VMware to Azure first requires that you make several key decisions. Do you lift and shift your existing Linux or Windows VMs to the cloud (something you can’t do with Amazon Web Services)? Or do you take a hybrid approach, supplementing your existing VMware environments with Azure services for backup, disaster recovery and security? What’s the right approach for you?
Navisite Can Help
With Navisite, you get a full range of Managed Azure services and expertise for VMware environments. We’re an Azure Expert MSP and we’ve managed tens of thousands of Windows and Linux VMs, and understand the decisions that go into choosing the right VMware-to-Azure path. We’ll help you simplify your choices while maximising your savings.
Our experts start by carefully reviewing your business and technology goals, and thoroughly assessing your VMware vSphere environments to pinpoint application interdependencies. We’ll also determine which workloads stand to benefit from tiered storage options, develop and test workloads to see how best to streamline them, and map out an optimal migration plan that accelerates your move to Azure with minimal disruption.
