Does anyone know how azure migrate handles on premise disk constraints when performing an assessment? E.g will it read disk queues when advising on the disk type to use within azure?
@JamieChilds-0424 Thanks for your patience in this matter!
For storage sizing in an Azure VM assessment, Azure Migrate tries to map each disk that is attached to the machine to an Azure disk. The sizing logic changes with the Sizing criteria chosen in the assessment properties as below:
• As on-premises: The assessment logic does not consider the performance history of disks and only looks at the on-premises disk size and storage type specified in assessment properties to recommend appropriate disk type. Possible storage types are Standard HDD, Standard SSD, and Premium.
• Performance-based: Along with the disk size and storage type, the logic also considers IOPS and throughput of individual disks to find the appropriate disk in Azure. More details here
