Hey present or future Azure fans,
With the new Azure (IaaS) Cost Estimator Tool, you can now estimate the costs for moving your on-premises datacenters, infrastructure, and IT workloads to Microsoft Azure.
You use the Azure Cost Estimator Tool to monitor physical servers (both Windows and Linux) and virtual servers that are managed by System Center Virtual Machine Manager (SCVMM), Hyper-V, and VMware/ESX for their resource consumption. Then, you can estimate the costs of running an equivalent set of servers in Azure.
See this blog post for a walkthrough.
