Azure Migration Services 

Simplify and expedite your Azure cloud migration while reducing costs with Azure native services.

Companies face many challenges when they start a new project using their on-premises environment. The setup requires an upfront capital investment as on-premises software requires that the enterprise purchases a license or a copy of the software to use it.

As your projects evolve, tasks become more complex and consume more resources. To keep up with the pace of change, your organization needs to handle these new workloads by constantly upgrading the on-premises infrastructure, which is often an expensive and time-consuming approach. The downside of on-premises environments is that costs associated with managing and maintaining all the solution entails can run exponentially high.

Why Embrace Azure Migration?

Migrating workloads to Azure can provide businesses with a more flexible, scalable, and cost-effective infrastructure, along with enhanced security and integration capabilities.


Azure allows for easy scaling of resources, which is crucial for businesses that experience fluctuations in demand for their services or products.


Azure offers a wide range of services and tools that can be tailored to meet specific business needs. These include services for compute, storage, networking, analytics, and more.


Azure has built-in security features that help protect data and applications from cyber threats. These features include multi-factor authentication, role-based access control, and threat intelligence.


Azure offers a range of pricing options, including pay-as-you-go, which can help businesses reduce costs by only paying for the resources they need.

Hybrid Capabilities

Azure offers hybrid cloud capabilities, which allow organizations to integrate their existing on-premises infrastructure with Azure services, providing a consistent platform for managing both on-premises and cloud resources.

Microsoft Integration Capabilities

Azure is part of the Microsoft ecosystem, which means it integrates seamlessly with other Microsoft products such as Office 365, Dynamics 365, and Power BI.

Azure Migration Approach

  • Assess your existing servers/virtual machines, discover workloads with dependencies and determine wave groups. 
  • Prepare the migration plan, timeline, and cloud expenses. 
  • Choose a suitable landing zone option and cost, based on workloads’ volume, size and complexity.
  • Plan the cloud migration in detail.
  • Build the architecture, ensure high availability, and perform disaster recovery. 
  • Migrate your servers and storage to the Azure cloud. 
  • Install default applications followed by custom business applications then migrate your Active Directory users, groups, and other workloads. 
  • Perform validation of the server/VM workloads after the migration. 
  • Perform end-to end testing of the new Azure cloud environment. 
  • Go-live.

Frequently Asked Questions

Datacenter migration 

Organizations that are looking to move away from maintaining their own data centers can migrate their applications and data to Azure, which provides a secure and scalable cloud-based infrastructure. 

Application modernization 

Organizations may have applications running on legacy platforms that are becoming difficult to maintain or are no longer supported. Migrating these applications to Azure can provide access to modern development tools and services that can improve application functionality, reliability, and security. 

Disaster recovery 

Organizations can use Azure to create a disaster recovery solution that replicates their critical applications and data to the cloud, providing a backup in case of an outage or disaster. 

Hybrid cloud 

Organizations may have on-premises infrastructure that they want to integrate with cloud services. Azure provides a hybrid cloud solution that allows organizations to integrate their on-premises infrastructure with Azure services, providing a consistent platform for managing both on-premises and cloud resources. 


Organizations can use Azure to support DevOps practices, such as continuous integration and deployment, and improve the speed and efficiency of their development and deployment processes. 

Big data and analytics 

Azure provides a range of big data and analytics services that can help organizations process and analyze large amounts of data, and gain insights to inform business decisions. 

The ‘lift and shift’ approach is one we often see our clients consider, and the answer is Yes. A better question is “Why would you move specific workloads to the cloud? Our approach is to look at your different workloads and identify what is ready for transformation before migrating your systems. We will help you with setting a migration roadmap and migration execution. We will also suggest which migration pattern fits more your organization: platform as a service (PaaS) or infrastructure as a service (IaaS). 

If you correctly consider the design of your application, the answer to this question is “Yes”. However, there are many elements that affect the application performance in the cloud. They range from ensuring your environment is scaled correctly (in terms of compute instance and disk capability), to how your users interact with the applications.

Also, there’s another area to consider, which is your network. Specifically, how your users will access your applications once they are migrated to the cloud.

There are many compute options (ultra disk, graphics processing unit (GPU) enabled machines, etc.) and enhanced networking tools that will improve your application’s performance.
