“It’s time to migrate.”
Maybe the decision to switch cloud providers came “down from above.” Maybe the decision was yours. Perhaps your original solution was merely a spike to “kick the tires” of one cloud, and now it’s time to try another. Looking into a multi-cloud "hybrid" solution? Whatever your reasons, if you are considering moving your serverless code from AWS Lambda to Azure Functions, you’re in the right place to learn how!
“Moving from Lambda to Azure Functions” is a six-part videos series that covers what you need to know to make the transition between cloud providers. You’ll learn how to migrate your app, explore how resources in Azure relate to Amazon AWS, build a function locally, deploy it manually and learn how to push it automatically as part of a CI/CD pipeline.
You can view the source code for the sample app and deploy the migrated code directly to Azure with a single-click in the “AWSMigration” GitHub repository.
