Windows & SQL Server Migration: 10hr Assessment


Learn how migrations to Windows and SQL Server on Azure virtual machines can benefit your business.

Lift & Shift or Refactor all of your workloads that are currently running on expensive and difficult to maintain hardware. Through our Windows and SQL Server Migration Assessment, learn how to get rid of your servers and your hardware, and make the transition to the cloud. We are able to assess and assist clients who are in any stage of virtualization, all physical hardware, virtualized hardware, or a combination of the 2.

In this assessment, we will look into your environment(s) as it currently operates and determine the best methods and tools to make the move to the cloud. The 2 types of migrations we specialize in are are Lift and Shift, and Refactoring.

Lift and Shift The easiest way to move to Azure, if you have a piece of hardware that is dying/out of warranty/unreliable, and need to move your server from that hardware, this is a quick and easy way to do it.

Refactoring Get rid of servers altogether, not just the hardware. The assessment brings to light whether refactoring is a possibility as sometimes for older applications, a server is necessary.

We will also determine what workloads can be moved, including but not limited to:

  • File Servers
  • SQL Servers
  • Websites
  • Domain Controllers
  • Auxiliary Services (Monitoring, patching, backup)

Through the assessment, we will also determine what Azure subscriptions are right for you. Instead of running on servers, workloads instead run on Azure services, and there is no hardware, care and feeding, or management to deal with. Some benefits of our assessment include:

  • Selection of the right size virtual machines for your business, and the ability to turn off when not in use
  • Virtualization and deletion of servers, leading to minimal backup, monitoring, and necessity for deployment of tools
  • Walkthrough of reserved instances and the cost savings associated
  • And more!

Whether you have migrated before or are just warming up to the idea, Finchloom can get your business to the cloud the right way the first time
