Azure migrate or site recovery for migrating VMware on premise servers RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi 

    I assume  azure migrate is relatively new when compared to ASR

    For me it makes sense to use Azure migrate for migrating on-premise VMware servers to azure

    And Site recovery is more for DR and also be used for migration ?

    Is there any advantage using one over the another ?

  • If you plan to migrate your on-premise workloads to Azure, use Azure migrate. It helps you assess your on-premise machine and provides guidance and tools to migrate to Azure. Azure migrate uses some backend Site Recovery functionality for lift and shift migration of on-premise machines and workloads.

    If you're looking for a DR solution, Azure site recovery is a right choice to opt for. Site recovery helps in assessment of your on-premises environment for the purpose of disaster recovery. It provides recommendations around disaster recovery, such as replication and failover.

    Site recovery is more for DR and also be used for migration ?
    Yes. Recommendations: Site Recovery for DR and Azure migrate for Migration to Azure.

    Is there any advantage using one over the another ?
    Both are two different tools used for two different purpose. Hope the explanation above would help clarify the difference between the two.
