Using Azure Site Recovery for Migration - Storage Account design in Azure RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    Hope you are well and safe. I am planning to migrate Development (150), Test (100) and Production (150) servers , DB servers (20) to Azure using Site Recovery. The total storage space on-premise is 100 TB.

    I am looking to use one storage account for Development and Test - StorageAccountDEVTEST and one storage account for Production - StorageaccountPROD, DB - StorageaccountDB

    I am looking to use Storage v2 for above account

    For Development, Test, Prod I am using Standard

    For DB I am using premium

    Will this be a  good storage account design?

    What replication is recommended for these account? Cost is not a problem.


    Regards, AzureBeginner

  • Hello,

    i recommend to use Azure migrate instead of Azure site recovery, Azure Migrate provided a centralized hub for assessment and migration to Azure.

    The Azure Migrate: Server Assessment tool discovers and assesses on-premises VMware VMs, Hyper-V VMs, and physical servers for migration to Azure.

    Here's what the tool does:

      • Azure readiness: Assesses whether on-premises machines are ready for migration to Azure.
      • Azure sizing: Estimates the size of Azure VMs after migration
      • Storage and disk sizing: Server Assessment looks at the storage type specified in assessment properties and recommends the appropriate disk type. Possible storage types are Standard HDD, Standard SSD, and Premium. The default storage type is Premium
      • Azure cost estimation: Estimates costs for running on-premises servers in Azure.
      • Dependency analysis: Identifies cross-server dependencies and optimization strategies for moving interdependent servers to Azure.

      If you want to use Azure site recovery you can use Azure site recovery Deployment planner which can provide you with these information

      • The storage type (standard or premium storage account) requirement for each VM
    • The total number of standard and premium storage accounts to be set up for replication
