Transitioning from on-premises data centers to Azure VMware Solution (AVS) can streamline operations, enhance scalability, and reduce infrastructure management overhead. The process involves migrating virtual machines and configurations to AVS while leveraging Azure services, which often requires careful planning and compatibility assessments. Once migrated, organizations can benefit from the flexibility and agility of a cloud-based VMware environment while integrating with Azure's broader ecosystem for added capabilities.

Our initial efforts were to “just get it in the cloud” and while it worked, it was way too expensive. It was a lift only and we typically oversized environments so total costs skyrocketed. When we changed to application consolidation with emphasis on standardization and minimal configuration it became a reasonable project. Remember a benefit of cloud if you size the environment too small you can increase it. Plan for a reasonable to perhaps a slightly undersized environment and then monitor to determine if more spending is required to boost performance.

before migration you must create DRP (disaster recovery plan) and test for the plan, if no problem for the test you can back up your database , configuration & file and dont forget prepare the role back plan
