First create an Azure virtual machine with a SQL Server instance. Then migrate your on-premises databases to that instance. For data migration strategies, see Migrate a SQL Server database to SQL Server in an Azure VM.

Why not try using the Azure Database Migration Service?

If your saying "to the Cloud" mean migrating to Azure's PaaS DB (SQL Database), take a look at the Azure Database Migration Service documentation.
