What is Azure Lift and Shift?
Lift and shift – also known as rehosting – is a migration strategy that involves moving data and applications from an on-premises location to Azure-based virtual machines in the cloud. It’s a popular approach, mainly because it is relatively quick and painless.
Lift-and-shift allows organisations to keep running their applications with minimal changes and disruption. They benefit from all Azure’s advanced platform capabilities and scalability without having to invest in the re-architecture of applications or the refactoring of code up front.
Key Benefits of Azure Lift and Shift
- Faster and easier migration
- Reduced risk and cost
- Minimal re-architecture and refactoring
- Low initial cost compared to re-platforming
- Minimal or no downtime
