Description

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

In this course, you will learn how to evaluate migration scenarios by using Azure Migrate. We’ll cover the discovery and assessment of on-prem VMware environments and how to identify workloads that can and cannot be deployed.  You’ll also learn about Azure Migrate port requirements and how to determine if the target environment is supported for a migration.

Later in the course, you will learn how to deploy and configure Azure Site Recovery (ASR) and how to use it to migrate an on-prem server to Microsoft Azure. You’ll also learn how to configure storage, create a backup vault, and how to prepare the source and target environments ahead of a migration.

The topics covered in this Azure course map very closely to learning objectives covered in the Microsoft Azure certification exams.  By mastering the topics covered in this course, the student not only learns skills necessary for assessing environments for migration suitability and for performing those migrations, but the student also learns skills necessary to prepare for certification exams.

Transcript

After creating the Recovery Services vault, select what you want to replicate and where you want to replicate it to. To do this, browse to and click on the newly created vault. Click Site Recovery in the resource menu and then click Prepare Infrastructure under the For On Premises Machines. In Protection goal, select On-premises under Where are your machines located. Select Azure as the destination. Next, select what you want to migrate. In this case, we are going to migrate a VMware virtual machine, so we'll select VMware. Click OK. Although it's not necessary to run the deployment planner, it's recommended so you can gauge what bandwidth is necessary for a successful migration. In our case here, we're only migrating one virtual machine, so I'm not overly concerned about bandwidth requirements. Now that the protection goal has been configured, we'll move on to preparing the source, which we'll cover in the next demonstration.
