Have you been wanting to move some of your services up to Azure, but you don’t have the budget to move them up to the cloud? Microsoft has an excellent deal for you. Microsoft will pay for (at least part) of the consulting time needed to get you migrated into Azure. These funds can be used to help you plan your migration so that all of the “i”s are dotted and the “t”s are crossed before you start to implement your Azure migration.
Planning a Migration from on-premises to Azure is key to ensuring that you have a successful migration. An unsuccessful migration is costly, and painful and is something that we want to avoid at all possible cost.
Getting Microsoft to pay for planning your Azure Migrations is surprisingly easy, there is only one major requirement, that you currently have Software Assurance on your systems, somewhere. As a customer with Software Assurance you have various benefits that come with your Software Assurance, one of which is consulting hours to assist you with migrations to the Microsoft Azure platform.
Activating this benefit can even be done without having to talk to anyone from Microsoft. You just need to log into your Microsoft Licensing Service Center and activate the benefit from there. We can even help walk you though the benefit setup and getting your vouchers.
The good news here is that Denny Cherry & Associates Consulting is setup to accept those vouchers, so you can have Microsoft pay for your migrations into Azure.
If you having been thinking about moving into Azure, and you are looking for some help in getting that done contact us. We’ll walk you though the process of getting your vouchers and use those to help you have a successful migration from your current environment to the Microsoft Azure Cloud Platform.
