Have you ever wondered what it would cost to run a traditional on premise or virtualized machine in Azure? If you are like me, you’ve tried many different ways to accurately baseline the server utilization and translate that to the proper instance size and utilization in Azure.
I have some good news for you. There is a new tool, Microsoft Azure (Iaas) Cost Estimator Tool, that will help you do this work faster and more accurately. It takes just a minute to download and can be run quickly.
The tool supports
- Microsoft technologies (Hyper-V, SCVMM)
- VMware technologies (vCenter, ESXi)
- Physical environments (Windows, Linux)
Here is the download page with full specs and details on the tool:
