With the announcement of Microsoft taking a big leap towards AI integration in its software applications. Another major announcement was also made: Azure Migrate will be launched on November 27th this year. Azure Migrate is a free tool which makes it easy for customers, business and enterprise to bring their existing applications and data from their own servers up into the Microsoft Azure cloud.

Microsoft Azure cloud, gives customers access to unlimited supercomputing power on a pay-as-you-go basis. Small business and enterprise alike are drawn to public clouds for the cost-savings and performance improvements they more than often bring. With the proper rightsizing, some customers are saving 84% versus the costs of keeping their VMware infrastructure running in their data center.

 

Here are 3 good reasons to migrate to Azure

 

Privacy, compliance & Location

Privacy, compliance & Location are essential features to consider when evaluating a cloud provider. Azure public cloud is available in over 30 regions worldwide. Location is important for speed and latency performance but especially for data protection regarding laws and privacy, which differ by region. Azure has additionally invested in customer data protection. From a facility and internal point of view. This is to help organisations comply with regional, national and industry specific requirements governing the collection and use of data.

 

Linux Adoption

Microsoft has been and continues to move away from the notion of being a windows-centered company. On the server side, Microsoft has acknowledged that many internet startups, distinct from the enterprise customers, rely completely on Linux. In 2014, it launched a “Microsoft loves Linux” campaign to promote support for Linux based operating systems.

 

Cost

Not only does having VMware dramatically reduce your burden of administrating your servers but consequently it also greatly reduces your cost. If you move to Azure public cloud you will be saving on the cost of servers and their maintenance. Not to mention the migration service to Azure will be free following its release.
