What are Azure migration steps?

First, start with a clear objective for the migration. That will make sure all stakeholders are on the same page. Depending on your path to Azure, the steps and tools will vary. At high-level the Azure migration steps are to first start with assessing the workloads you plan to move as well as their dependencies to create the overall strategy. Make sure you have a solid understanding of your estimated costs too. Then, perform the necessary preparations around provisioning the Azure environment, applying security controls, etc. From there, execute the Azure migration and optimize the workloads to ensure efficiency.

What to consider when migrating to Azure?

When migrating to Azure, organizations must consider the total cost of ownership, including both migration and ongoing operational costs. Ensuring data security and regulatory compliance is crucial to mitigate risks. Make sure to plan for scalability to support future growth and implement robust disaster recovery and business continuity strategies. Additionally, aligning cloud migration with business objectives, optimizing resource management, and investing in continuous staff training and development are essential for long-term success and efficiency.

Why should I migrate to Azure?

Scalability, flexibility, and cost-efficiency are all reasons why an Azure migration is a wise choice. Azure is likely the best choice for your organization if you’re already invested in the Microsoft stack and once you move to Azure plan to leverage the additional capabilities it offers around security and disaster recovery with azure site recovery.

What are the major Azure migration scenarios?

The four major Azure migration scenarios offer distinct benefits depending on your goals for scalability, performance optimization, and cost-efficiency in the Azure cloud environment. Rehosting, or lift and shift, involves migrating applications to Azure with minimal changes. Refactoring, or repackaging, entails making slight modifications to applications to better fit the cloud environment without altering their core architecture. Rearchitecting involves redesigning applications to fully leverage Azure’s cloud-native features and services. Rebuilding requires rewriting applications from scratch using Azure’s cloud-native technologies.

What types of Azure migrations does ProArch have experience performing?

What are the most used Azure migration tools?

The Azure migration tools you use will depend on your migration approach. To replicate file shares to cloud storage use Azure File Sync. Another option in Azure storage migration scenarios you can also choose to use Azure Data Box to migrate files in bulk. If you want to move certain workloads to the cloud to leverage benefits like scalability and security, the Azure Migrate tool uses a cloning approach.

Desktop as a Service

Desktop as a Service (DaaS) takes a phased approach to moving workloads to Azure Virtual Desktop (AVD) and managing them once they’re there.

AVD proof of concept

Phase 1

AVD Discovery, Planning, and Proof of Concept

First, business objectives are set, and workloads inventoried. A proof of concept on a subset of workloads is performed to establish a baseline of cloud readiness for business use cases.

AVD Pilot

Phase 2


The implementation plan is created and tested to ensure performance and minimize disruption when the deployment process occurs.

Desktop as a Service

Phase 3


Full AVD rollout including systems and user acceptance testing, admin training, and documentation.

Desktop as a Service

Phase 4

Managed Services

The ProArch team performs on-going maintenance, patching, upgrades, image management, troubleshooting, cost optimization, and alert monitoring on the AVD environment.
