Estimate your cloud costs

Migration Center lets you generate a rapid cost estimate of your future cloud costs based on the size and configuration of the resources in your current on-premises environment. This lets you and your organization take some guesswork out of future cloud budgets.

Discover your assets

Migration Center helps you create an inventory of your assets, including servers, Microsoft SQL Server, MySQL, and PostgreSQL databases, by automatically scanning your on-premises environment. By automating as much of this as possible with Migration Center, it saves your organization time and energy that would otherwise be spent collecting this data manually.

However, if you don't want automatic data collection for your assets, you can also choose to manually upload your infrastructure data into Migration Center.
