If you are looking for a way to migrate your workloads to Microsoft Azure, you might want to check out the Azure Strategic Migration Assessment & Readiness Tool (SMART). This tool helps you assess your current environment, identify the best migration strategies, and plan your cloud migration projects with confidence.
The Azure SMART tool is a web-based application that you can access from any browser. It allows you to scan your on-premises servers and applications and get a comprehensive report on their readiness for Azure. The report includes:
- A summary of your current environment, such as the number of servers, operating systems, applications, and databases.
- A migration assessment for each server and application, based on their compatibility, performance, and dependencies.
- A migration strategy recommendation for each server and application, such as lift-and-shift, rehost, refactor, or rebuild.
- A migration cost estimate for each server and application, based on the Azure pricing calculator and your selected migration strategy.
- A migration roadmap that shows you the optimal sequence and timeline for migrating your workloads to Azure.
The Azure SMART tool is designed to help you make informed decisions and reduce risks when planning your migration to Azure. It can also help you prepare for the Azure Migration and Modernization Program (AMMP), which offers technical guidance and financial incentives for migrating to Azure.
To learn more about the Azure SMART tool and how to use it, visit the official documentation page. You can also watch this video that demonstrates how the tool works and how it can benefit your migration journey.
