We would like to test a setup of 3 existing VMs (running in our Hyper-V Cloud) in Azure.
Migrating to Azure using Site Recovery would be comparatively easy; but we don't want to migrate / deactivate the local VMs in any way (they are critical in production).
Rather, we want to make copies of them, move those to Azure and play/test with them there (just for performance testing and cost measuring).
I couldn't find any easy solution in the net; usually there are quite complex Powershell scripts required to do even part of this. In comparison, AWS offers a (seemingly) really simple solution (AWS Server Migration Service) - can't believe that this is not possible on Azure?
