Azure Migrate is Migration assistance used to discover

Azure by Microsoft is a Cloud Computing infrastructure capable of hosting and managing Big Data, applications, .

And services through Microsoft‘s Datacenters

The system provides a global platform for deploying data and critical applications using not very complicated procedures and tools.
Azure Migrate is Migration assistance used to discover, .

Assess and migrate the on-premises machines to Azure

It helps in migrating applications, infrastructure, and workloads to Azure.
This article will explain the complete procedure to migrate machines by treating them as physical servers to Azure with the help of Azure Migrate.  Migrating Virtual Machines by treating them as physical servers is useful in cases where transfer or replication of virtual machines may not be feasible through standard procedures, as in the following scenarios:   Migrating In-house on-premises physical servers  Virtual Machines are running in the private cloud.   The VMs are operated by public providers like Amazon (AWS) or Google (GCP)   Before jumping on to the procedure for migration, please ensure that the following Prerequisites are taken care of:   Check the requirements for the machine you want to migrate and make sure the host specifications match these requirements.  Make sure to check your Azure account settings.
It should be assigned the Virtual Machine Contributor role so that it can perform the migration successfully.  When you set up migration to Azure, the Virtual machines are joined to an Azure Network you specify during the migration process.     After reviewing these prerequisites, you can start with the migration by performing the following steps in sequence:   Setting Up Azure: Before using the Azure Migrate Server Migration, .

You need to prepare Azure by giving specific permissions through your account

The authorities are required for creating a project, setting up an ‘Azure Active Directory App‘ in the azure account and creating a key vault in the resource group.    Preparing Machines for Replication of Data: This step involves ensuring that the machines comply with the requirements for migrating to Azure.
The client has to verify the physical server requirements and whether the target VMs match those requirements.    Migration Tool: After preparing the Azure Migrate project, .

The next step is to add the Azure Migration tool

This can be done from the Azure portal by following some simple steps.  Replication Appliance: This is effectively the step where the actual migrating process starts.
The client has to download and install the appliance, run it on the machine and then register the same with the Azure Migrate Server application.  Mobility Service: After installing and registering the Replication Appliance, the client needs to connect the Mobility Service to every machine that needs to be migrated.
The installers are available on the Replication Application itself. Selecting Machines: This is one of the most critical steps.
Here, the client has to choose the machines that are to be replicated and migrated to the Azure Platform.
This has to be done no more than ten machines can be migrated together.
The client should check and update the replication settings before the migration process starts.  Initiate Test Migration: After selecting the machines, it‘s recommended to run a test migration before actually initiating the complete movement to check if everything is happening smoothly.   Actual Migration: After the successful migration of test machines, the client can initiate the migration of all the desired Virtual Machines to the new platform by clicking on the ‘Migrate‘ option after right-clicking on the ‘Replicating Servers‘ tab in the project.    After Successful Migration:  After machines are successfully migrated, you can stop the migration by clicking the ‘Stop Migration‘ option on the Virtual Machine.
The client has to give finishing touches to the process.

Involving stuff like adding ‘Azure Agent‘ to the migrated machines

cutting over traffic to the relocated place, removing the on-premise VMs from local inventory and backups and checking if the transferred devices and applications are working fine on the new Azure platform.
The client also needs to take specific steps to increase the resilience and security of the new system by indulging in monitoring and management.    Conclusion  The above discussion talks about the Azure Cloud computing system, its features and functions, and the complete process of migrating VMs to the Azure platform with the help of Azure Migrate.   The post Migrate Physical server to Azure Virtual machine appeared first on Server Consultancy Ltd.
