What are the benefits of migrating my workloads running on VMWare to Microsoft Azure?

Microsoft Azure offers the following benefits when partners running VMWare within their environment choose to migrate or extend into Azure:

  • Partners save on additional hypervisor cost – in this case the additional VMware License cost.
  • Partners no longer need to refresh their Hardware (Compute, Storage and Network stack) every couple of years.
  • Partners no longer need to leverage a third-party Data centre for hosting their cloud platform.
  • Azure is a fully managed platform, this means partners no longer need to spend time patching their Infrastructure, which also reduces Operations costs.
  • Azure offers a secure, scalable and a reliable Multi-tenanted platform available on a Pay as you Go Model.
  • Partners can leverage the CSP program to license their Microsoft Azure tenancy which saves admin time spent on reporting licenses procured through multiple vendor programs.
  • Partners can leverage multiple solutions such as Azure Backups, Azure Site Recovery, Azure Security Center and manage multiple solutions from a single dashboard.
