The adoption phase consists of two steps. On the one hand the “Cloud migration in the Cloud Adoption Framework” and on the other hand the “Cloud innovation in the Cloud Adoption Framework”. But let us start with the first step.
The first step is the suggested path for your first migration to Azure, as it will expose you to the methodology and the cloud-native tools most commonly used during migration to Azure.
Azure Migrate delivers a unified and extensible migration experience. Azure Migrate provides a one-stop, dedicated experience to track your migration journey across the phases of assessment and migration to Azure. It provides you the option to use the tools of your choice and track the progress of migration across these tools. With Azure Migrate one can use functionalities like enhanced assessment and migration capabilities, unified assessment, migration, and progress tracking, extensible approach with ISV integration
Azure Migrate is suited for an estimation of VM costs prior to migration. Azure Migrate calculates monthly cost estimates based on data captured by the collector and service map. The resulting estimate, pictured below, identifies the monthly costs of compute and storage, which often represent the largest portion of cloud costs.
Estimating cost prior to migration provides a solid target for cost expectations. Once the asset is migrated and under load, more accurate cost calculations can be made, based on actual or synthesized load.
