Device42 and Azure

Infrastructure and Application Discovery for Cloud Migration

Cloud migration is often slowed or hampered by lack of visibility and documentation of existing data center and cloud infrastructure and applications. Gaining this visibility is especially difficult in complex and highly secure environments.

Device42 accelerates cloud transformation by providing comprehensive infrastructure visibility. Device42 automatically and agentlessly discovers everything in your IT estate – from legacy (Mainframes, AS/400), to virtual (VMWare, HyperV), to the latest in cloud (Kubernetes, Docker).

Once discovered, Device42 automatically identifies application dependencies and communication pathways, and allows customers to create custom business applications that combine organizational knowledge with automatic discovery. Business applications can be used to create migration move groups. Device42 can also provide Azure infrastructure recommendations and cost estimates based on existing resource utilization. Finally, Device42 integrates with Azure Migrate, further accelerating migration.

Device42 is deployed on-premise with no data leaving the data center, freeing organizations to plan their cloud migration knowing that their data will be available only to them.

Discovery for Cloud Migration

  • Automatic and agentless discovery of all infrastructure.
  • Application dependency mapping to ensure apps work post-migration.
  • Direct integration with Azure Migrate.

Cloud Sizing and Optimization

  • Resource Utilization (RU) gathers statistics on a machine’s Disk, Network I/O, CPU and memory utilization over time.
  • Use RU data with Device42’s Cloud Recommendation Engine to provide the exact details needed to plan your next cloud migration including Azure instance recommendations and costs.
  • Use Device42 Business Applications to plan migration move groups.


  • Continuous, automatic mapping of all infrastructure.
  • Application mapping to understand key dependencies.
  • Integrates with most IT tool sets including Configuration Management (Ansible, Puppet, Chef) and ITSM solutions (ServiceNow, Jira Service Desk, Freshservice).

Customers in more than 60 countries including 2000 Global Clients and Systems Integrators trust Device42 as they manage and modernize their IT infrastructure.
