An Introduction to Google Cloud Migration Center
Migration Center brings all of Google Cloud’s planning, migration, and modernization tooling together in one centralized experience within the Google Cloud console with a unified data platform. Built on a new scalable, and extensible data foundation, Migration Center provides the connective tissue between user interfaces and APIs for Google Cloud or partner/ISV-provided discovery, analysis, planning, and migration tools.
Some key highlights of Migration Center include:
-Console-integrated, one-stop portal for all things migration and modernization
-Quick estimates for running your workloads in Google Cloud with minimal user input. These estimates will include right-sizing and the right mix of Google Cloud infrastructure and are built on editable assumptions from actual customer migrations
-Easier initiation of discovery and assessment with in-console reports for asset inventory, delivering insights and best path recommendations for migrating to VMs, containers, databases, dedicated hardware, and managed services
-Prescriptive guidance documentation based on best practices for migration planning and execution, distilled from real-world migrations done by Google Professional Services
-Migration execution launchpad for kickstarting your actual migrations with proven tools such as Migrate to Containers, the Database Migration Service, and Migrate to Virtual Machines — which recently introduced a preview of migrating from AWS as a source.
-Common API surface for customers and partners to enable ecosystem integrations
