Device42, a workload migration assistance provider that can help discover, map, and optimize infrastructure and applications across data centers and cloud, has announced its integration with Microsoft Azure Migrate to provide cloud migration assistance to organizations moving workloads to Azure.
With this integration, Microsoft Azure customers can add Device42 to their Azure account directly with a few clicks. Once added, Device42 becomes available for installation in their data center, allowing instantaneous discovery and identification of workloads along with guidance on migrating them to Azure. Once discovered, Device42 will then push these recommendations, including instance and disk sizing, back to Azure Migrate. This would help business simplify moving to the cloud.
“Successfully migrating applications and workloads to Microsoft Azure requires deep understanding of your infrastructure and application dependencies,” said Jeremy Winter, Partner Director, Azure Management, Microsoft. “Device42’s discovery capabilities helps give our customers the visibility to move to Azure.”
Cloud Instance Sizing
Device42 software offers agentless, full-stack discovery, resource utilization tracking, intelligent workload grouping, and includes features like Affinity Groups which helps IT staff identify each workload’s critical dependencies, and business applications. This would help empower businesses to accurately map even their most complex, custom workloads in detail. Finally, Device42’s ‘Cloud Recommendation Engine’ would provide target cloud instance sizing suggestions and pricing information for those instances on Microsoft Azure cloud.
“We’re thrilled to work alongside Microsoft Azure to help businesses identify and migrate those workloads that are best suited to Azure,” said Raj Jalan, CEO of Device42. “Our team comes to work every day excited to help businesses all over the world identify a clear, efficient path between their current data center and Azure. Device42 is focused on delivering seamless, end-to-end support to IT departments and businesses undertaking this digital journey.”
