"Super User Friendly! "

What do you like best?

Azure was great and easy to work with during my internship with a software company. Microsoft Azure has many user guides that allow just about anyone to use the product. I would highly recommend it to just about anyone.

What do you dislike?

Some explanation contained too much jargon, especially for someone just starting out in the industry. Since I was an intern with I used it, some of it went over my head. The user guides really helped though.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Microsoft makes Azure seem like the best product because it is one of the best. Although my use was minimal, the product speaks volumes. Since it's Microsoft you don't have to worry about quality or support - they really care about those aspects of their company.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We were solving data protection issues. The benefits greatly outweighed the costs because overall it was very easy to use. The migration is one of the fastest and safest I've seen.

"A great free service to migrate you application to Azure and to map your application links"

What do you like best?

Azure migrate is a virtual appliance that you install on your datacenter, it will analyse your datacenter and make an estimation of what will be the cost to run it inside azure. Azure migrate will be also able to construct a map of your application interaction with the analytics agent install on your device. This last service offer as a free trial for a couple of days. You will be able to know what applications is talking to who on which port. it is a very powerfull tool

What do you dislike?

Azure migrate only offer a migration to Azure (not surprising). If you want to have the full map of your applications inside your datacenter, you need to install an agent locally on each server and you may want to remove it when trial will be finished. For the cost estimation Azure migrate will not take advantage of Microsoft PAAS solution, it will give you a one to one conversion estimation, so you will need to use azure calculator to optimize your cost evaluation and use PAAS solutions (cheaper).

Recommendations to others considering the product

you should install azure analytics client inside your datacenter so you will get a more accurate map of what can be migrate and how you should migrate it

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Azure migrate gave me an accurate description of the applications relations inside my datacenter without spending to much time to analyse.

What Cloud Migration solution do you use?

Thanks for letting us know!

"Azure migrate - simple and easy process to keep your On premise metadata on Cloud"

What do you like best?

It automatically detects and helps you identify the right Virtual Machine size and configuration after analyzing the utilization history from the On-Premises VM.

It see the dependency of our VMs and create move groups so that nothing is left behind while migrating to cloud.

What do you dislike?

Relatively new generally available feature, still exploring it. There is nothing bad about it yet.

Recommendations to others considering the product

This is a great utility for those who are planning to migrate the On Premise VMs to Azure and offers a lot of customization as per your requirement.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

It gives me confidence to move the on premise machine to azure without any hassle as it does a lot of homework beforehand.

"Helped us move several of our on-prem VM workloads to the Azure cloud."

What do you like best?

It was fairly easy to use because of the discovery features and being aware of HyperV platforms that we had on-prem. It identified dependencies that we hadn't thought of when making the move, calling out gaps in our plan. It made our end to end process easier to plan and navigate.

What do you dislike?

Like any tool of this nature, you get some false positives or suggestions that aren't as crucial or dependent as the software thinks. Other than that, it worked fairly well for us. I'd rather know more and scale down what I don't need than to not know the gaps existed in the first place.

Recommendations to others considering the product

It worked well for our needs migrating HyperV VM workloads from on-prem to Azure. I am sure there are more features planned and improvements coming, so check for the latest features before ruling this tool out.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Migrating on-prem HyperV VMs to the Azure cloud.

"Azure Migrate review"

What do you like best?

VMware VMs running within its own data center, including CPU and memory usage, as well as performance history reporting

What do you dislike?

Dowloading and installing the Collector appliance

Recommendations to others considering the product

Be sure to have the right level of resources dedicated to the Collector Appliance portion of the project- we did not and therefore were two months behind schedule.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Installing the agents on premise to enable the dependency mapping features took more time than expected. We did, however, find some surprising data hogs during this process, so that was a tremendous benefit.

"Azure Migrate "

What do you like best?

Azure migrate has became an essential part of our work environment. So far the best part is how the program estimates the costs of running our on premise machines. We have run four sample tests which came back very close to the estimation. We are pleased with that aspect.

What do you dislike?

We found out that the program only assesses VMware managed by certain severs 5.5 and up. Unfortunately all of our servers were not updated at the time we began using the product. We are currently in the process of doing that. Afterwards, all should work well.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We have successfully ensured our on premise machinery performs with regard to cloud migration and the costs.

Azure has taken the complexity out of cloud migration. With a simple stream lined process it’s become a simple to implement solution for my clients.

What do you dislike?

There’s nothing I dislike about azure migrate

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

"Performance and functionality of Cloud providers is key to my customer's success."

What do you like best?

Having the majority of my customers on a Microsoft based platform makes Azure an easy and obvious choice for cloud based applications and disaster recovery infrastructure. Seamless integration and migration of Microsoft applications to the cloud are simple and organic to Azure, making the decision to relocate business critical applications to the cloud a no brainer.

What do you dislike?

Azure does not have all of the native platform and core services as AWS, nor as many geographically dispersed data "zones/regions" limiting customers to only those supported applications and geo-replication options.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Data management in the cloud. Data migration to the cloud. Hybrid approach to data management to include granular recovery of on prem and off prem, cloud-based data. Direct to cloud data protection and archive.

"Migrated entire data centers to azure"

What do you like best?

Flexibility, scalability, security. It is reachable from any PC anywhere if you need to manage. I think it gives more people time back so that they can spend it with their families.

What do you dislike?

no inter communication between regions when using site-to-site on prem.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

cost. Migrating helps us scale down from our datacenter deployment and scale up on a global scale.
