Are you looking to “life & shift” existing virtual machines to operate in Azure to take advantage of the reduced total cost of ownership, integrated data redundancy, higher resource availability?

Sharon Bennett wrote a great step-by-step article on how to leverage the Microsoft Azure Virtual Machine Readiness Assessment tool to quickly identify if your VM will smoothly move to Azure.

Moving to the cloud can be a daunting task, and sometimes it is hard to know where to start. You may have questions like what workloads can be moved? What workloads can’t? What can be moved after some modifications?

The Azure Virtual Machine Readiness Assessment tool was designed to help you determine how to move your virtual machine workloads to Azure. The tool inspects your physical or virtualized environment, and provides a checklist and a detailed report on the steps needed to move to Azure.

In this step-by-step, I will show you how to leverage this tool to analyze your environment.

After downloading and installing the application, the Azure Virtual Machine Readiness Assessment tool will begin the process of evaluating your infrastructure.

There is a total of 16 questions that you are required to answer in order for the tool to analyze your environment. We will walk through each question in this how-to.
