What are Migrations from Windows Server and SQL Server to Azure?

Migrations consist of moving the workload(s) of an on-prem Windows or SQL server to Azure. Migrations can be “lifted-and-shifted” or completely rebuilt within Azure depending on the needs of your organization.

Migrations from on-prem solutions to Azure offer numerous benefits: security controls, advanced threat protection, full SQL server parity, and a seamless migration process.

Keep your business-critical data and databases operating with increased security and accessibility in Microsoft Azure cloud.

Why Migrate to Azure?

  • Take advantage of App Service, Azure Functions, and Logic Apps to help refactor, rearchitect, and rebuild your apps in Azure


  • Start with a $200 Azure credit, and use forever free services like Cosmos DB, Functions, Event Grid, Advisor, Face, IoT Edge, Bot Service, Cognitive Search, Bandwidth (Data Transfer), and many more


  • Maximize existing investments in on-premises licenses by taking them to the cloud with Azure Hybrid Benefit and combine them with reserved instances for up to 85 percent savings


  • Explore dev/test pricing, and enjoy up to three free years of Extended Security Updates

When to Consider Migrating to Azure

Migrating to any cloud environment may sound tedious, but as technology advances, on-premise Windows and/or SQL server services become more dated and difficult to maintain.

Organizations typically consider migrating when certain technical issues begin to occur more frequently, when certain hardware components near replacement, or when new business initiatives require new feature sets.

Consider migrating to Azure sooner rather than later. Don’t wait for on-premise factors to limit and eventually impact your business. Plan ahead with Finchloom professionals and migrate to the most reliable business cloud platform available.
