Azure Advent - Azure Migrate

Find out more about my video on Azure Migrate for the Azure Advent Calendar 2019 event.

The Azure Advent Calendar is an initiative that Gregor Suttie and Richard Hooper have created, where every day within December new videos will be released from experts around the world. Each day the videos will either cover off an Azure product or provide some career advice.

Today it's my turn for a video to be released, and my video is on Azure Migrate.

Within my video I give an overview of where Azure Migrate began and where it is today. I also talk about some data center migration tips and tricks that I've picked up over the last few years on how organisations can make a successful journey from on prem to Azure.

When I first started planning my video I thought 30minutes would be a long time to fill, however I found it definitely wasn't enough time to cover off all the things that I wanted to, it's funny how that works out.

One of the new features that I talk about is being able to assess and migrate physical servers now, and this is a feature that was launched recently. If you are in the situation where you need to migrate your physical workloads to Azure, you can find out more about this new feature via the official documentation.

If you are looking for advice on migrating your workloads to Azure, we have some great scenario based documentation that can help guide you through.

To find out more about using Azure Migrate to migrate your Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) workloads to Azure using the native tooling, check out Pierre Roman's Microsoft Ignite session MSI30.
