Azure to AWS migration


What strategy you will recommend in order to move Linux VM deployed currently in Azure to AWS?
Assume that I will fit all the data in the OS disk, so only one disk has to be moved.

The VM is running Linux Ubuntu if that matters.

Naturally I will like to do that with as little network traffic as possible, since it is chargeable.

I read comments about the image making procedure described here, that it is not safe and some of the VMs are lost in the process … Not sure if it is still the case, but I will hate very much to lose my VM. 🙂


You can Export VM from Azure using CloudXplorer and then Import the VM in EC2.
