Skilling opportunity for application and data owners

Azure Migration Engagement provides customers with cost estimates, reference architecture design, and a migration plan for a specific workload:

  • Azure cost consumption estimates
  • Procurement recommendations
  • Decision criteria and time frame

The prepare phase refers to the “Azure landing zone” preparation. BrainScale helps you completely automate this step by employing BrainScale AzCOP solution. During this phase Azure Cloud landing zone is enabled for specific security, policy, compliance, network, connectivity and governance requirements.


During this phase the migration of apps, VMs or workloads is performed as per the migration plan. Based on the specific scenario at hand BrainScale employs ASR (Azure Site Recovery), Zerto, BrainScale Migration Factory for modernization (monolith to microservices factory) or custom automation scripts. The goal is completely automating this step and provide real time status reporting by using status report feature of BrainSale AzMigrate-MM.


On-premise infrastructure is typically overprovisioned. During migration usually the same server sizes are carried over to the Cloud configurations.
During optimization, AzMigrate provides various recommendations such as moving lift and shift VMs to PaaS app services or employing licensing aspects such as AHUB (Azure Hybrid Use Benefit) to take advantage of the elastic nature of Cloud.
