Assess Migration Suitability, Right-sizing, and Costs before moving On-Premises Resources to the Azure Cloud

Softlanding’s Azure Migration QuickStart is designed to assess and plan your migration to the Azure Cloud. Softlanding can help you extend or move your datacenter to Microsoft Azure while closely planning the migration. You will get a cost estimate that takes into account right-sizing, instance type planning, reserved instances, and hybrid use benefit, which together can save up to 82% over standard pricing.
