Essential Technologies for
Azure Cloud Migration

In an Azure cloud migration, various technologies and services are utilized to ensure a smooth transition of applications, data, and infrastructure to the Azure cloud platform. Here are some of the key technologies commonly used in Azure cloud migration:

1. Azure Migrate: Azure Migrate is a central hub for assessing and migrating on-premises servers, databases, and applications to Azure. It provides discovery, assessment, and migration capabilities to streamline the migration process.

2. Azure Site Recovery (ASR): ASR enables replication of on-premises virtual machines, physical servers, and Azure virtual machines to Azure, ensuring business continuity and disaster recovery capabilities during the migration process.

3. Azure Database Migration Service: This service simplifies the migration of on-premises databases to Azure, supporting various database engines such as SQL Server, MySQL, PostgreSQL, and Oracle.

4. Azure Data Box: For large-scale data migration, Azure Data Box provides physical appliances that can be shipped to the customer’s location to securely transfer large volumes of data to Azure.

5. Azure App Service: Azure App Service allows organizations to lift and shift web applications to the cloud, providing platform-as-a-service (PaaS) capabilities for hosting web apps and APIs with built-in scalability and availability.

6. Azure Virtual Machines (VMs): Azure VMs enable the migration of existing virtualized workloads to the cloud, providing infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS) capabilities for running Windows and Linux-based applications.

7. Azure Blob Storage: Azure Blob Storage is used for storing unstructured data such as documents, images, and videos during the migration process, providing scalable and cost-effective storage options.

8. Azure Networking Services: Azure Virtual Network, Azure ExpressRoute, and Azure VPN Gateway are utilized to establish secure network connectivity between on-premises environments and Azure, ensuring seamless communication during and after the migration.

9. Azure Active Directory (AAD): AAD is used for identity and access management in Azure, allowing organizations to manage user identities and access permissions during the migration process.

10. Azure DevOps: Azure DevOps provides tools for automating and managing the migration process, including source code management, continuous integration, and deployment pipelines.
