The Azure (IaaS) Cost Estimator has been designed keeping in mind the need to provide the IT manager of next generation organizations the ability to quickly assess running cost of her existing on-premises workload on Azure.

About the tool

  2. It recommends appropriate Azure instance to match the scanned workload
  3. It also generates 30-day cost estimates of running such an Azure instance

Features

    1. Microsoft technologies (Hyper-V, SCVMM)
    2. VMware technologies (vCenter, ESXi)
    3. Physical environments (Windows, Linux)
