We have around 40 Linux Vm's and a Windows Vm that needs to be migrated from Digital ocean to Azure. Can we use Azure migrate to migrate the virtual machines?
Please, let me know if there is any other approach to do that.

Even if we use RSYNC for transferring and synchronizing the files as mentioned in the link how-to-migrate-linux-servers-part-3-final-steps

Will it be a standard process?

    AFAIK digitalocean doesn't allow hosting windows servers. And Azure Migrate appliance can only be a windows machine. Which is why you can use below workaround to migrate these servers using Azure Migrate or ASR :

    1.) Create a windows machine on Azure and install Azure Migrate Appliance on this windows machine.
    2.) Setup connectivity between digitalocean servers and this Azure machine. You can use site to site VPN or express route for this connectivity.
    3.) Use physical to azure workflow and configure replication using below article :

    Hope this helps.
