Microsoft has recently announced tools and resources to help organizations tap into the power of the hybrid cloud to optimize their business.


These tools and resources announced include:


* A free Cloud Migration Assessment, which helps organizations discover the servers across their IT environment, analyze their hardware configurations, and provides a detailed report including the estimated cost benefits of moving to Microsoft Azure


Now organizations can activate their Azure Hybrid Use Benefit directly in the Azure Management Portal, simplifying their path to the cloud in the most cost-effective way possible. With the Azure Hybrid Use Benefit they can save up to 40% with Windows Server licenses that include Software Assurance


Azure Site Recovery is another tool to make the journey to the cloud as easy as possible. This is a tool organizations can use to migrate virtual machines to Azure, and helps in moving applications whether they are running on AWS, VMware, Hyper-V or on physical servers.


With Azure, organizations can get consistent hybrid capabilities across cloud and on-premises environments, offering them the flexibility to choose the optimal location for each application, based on their business requirements and reducing the complexity of moving to the cloud.
