    Hi,

    Better make use of Azure Migrate which is the best option to move your workloads to Azure. There are different approaches to proceed based on the type and size of the application.

    Here are the few videos I made on Server Migration

    Hi,

    Always it is better to adopt an incremental approach.

    1) First, pick one small piece of workload to perform piloting. I explained the video I shared in the earlier comment.
    2) Learn the things from piloting so that you can get some grip and issues
    3) Plan the next set of servers but not altogether, probably 10 or 20 in a chunk and then proceed with incremental chunks.
