Description

With the push to the cloud accelerating, it’s critical to understand how to migrate on-premises servers to Microsoft Azure. As an IT professional, you are likely to encounter situations where you need to plan and execute such migrations.

This course provides an overview of the Azure Migrate offering and the various Azure Migrate integrations that are available, before moving on to assessing and migrating VMware virtual machines, Hyper-V machines, and physical machines.

After preparing for migration, this course will walk you through a guided demonstration of an actual assessment and migration of a VMware virtual machine to Microsoft Azure. By the time you finish this course, you should have a full understanding of the Azure Migrate Service and the different options that are available for using it to migrate servers to Microsoft Azure.

Transcript

Welcome back. Over the next several lessons, which are really going to be demonstrations, I'm going to show you how to assess and migrate VMware virtual machines to Microsoft Azure. As we work through these steps, you'll learn how to set up an Azure Migrate project, how to set up an Azure Migrate appliance that runs on-prem to asses VMs, you'll learn how to start continuous discovery of on-prem VMs, how to group discover VMs and assess the VM group, and how to review the assessment.

Once we've completed the assessment, we'll get started on the actual migration.
