For many use cases, AWS Application Migration Service (AWS MGN) can be the fastest route to the cloud.
With AWS MGN, you can migrate your applications from physical infrastructure, VMware vSphere, Microsoft Hyper-V, Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2), Amazon Virtual Private Cloud (Amazon VPC), and other clouds to AWS.
AWS MGN currently supports the following AWS Regions: US East (N. Virginia), US West (Oregon), US East (Ohio), Asia Pacific (Tokyo), Asia Pacific (Sydney), Asia Pacific (Singapore), Europe (Ireland), Europe (Frankfurt), and Europe (Stockholm). Please refer to the AWS Regional Services List for the most up-to-date information on Region support.
You can use AWS MGN to migrate all your applications and databases that run on supported versions of Windows and Linux operating systems.
Which use cases may require a different migration service?
If your preferred AWS Region is not currently supported by AWS MGN, consider using CloudEndure Migration.
If you cannot or do not want to install an agent on your servers, consider using AWS Server Migration Service (AWS SMS).
What are the main differences between AWS Application Migration Service and CloudEndure Migration?
AWS MGN provides similar capabilities as CloudEndure Migration, but is available on the AWS Management Console. This enables seamless integration with other AWS services, such as AWS CloudTrail, Amazon CloudWatch, and AWS Identity and Access Management (IAM).
Currently, AWS MGN does not support all of the AWS Regions or operating systems that are supported by CloudEndure Migration.
What are the main differences between AWS Application Migration Service and AWS Server Migration Service?
AWS MGN utilizes continuous, block-level replication and enables short cutover windows measured in minutes. AWS SMS utilizes incremental, snapshot-based replication and enables cutover windows measured in hours.
Currently, AWS MGN does not support agentless replication while AWS SMS does.
