In September 2014, Microsoft made available as a limited preview its Migration Accelerator (MA) tool, designed to help users migrate their on-premises Windows Server workloads to Azure.
On January 14, Microsoft added support to MA for Linux. Using the MA preview tool, users can migrate Linux physical and virtual machines to Azure. The new release supports the migration of Cent OS (6.4, 6.5) and Oracle Linux (6.4, 6.5) to Azure.
