New Open Source Solution Makes Azure Data Center Migration Easier Than Ever

Azure logo

Have you ever thought of moving your cloud data from one Azure data center to another? Migration can be a complex manual affair because you need to write a script to add automation, customization and repeatability to your data center migration and it causes lots of issues. Persistent Systems have released a free open source solution called Azure Data Center Migration Solution (ADCMS) developed in collaboration with the Microsoft Azure CAT team to fix these issues.

It provides a highly flexible and extensible method of moving assets from one Azure data center to another. With a focus on atomicity, this utility is designed to handle interruptions and either start from where it left off or roll back.

ADCMS produces a JSON based template of your subscription configuration metadata (including affinity groups, networks, disks, availability sets, load balancers and cloud services) which can then be used to stand up a replica, or edited to produce a modified version. This methodology enables export, import and migration.

The solution can be downloaded from github, and comes with a comprehensive user guide.
