Moving All of My Websites to Azure


I’ve been long overdue in moving my personal websites to the cloud. Although I’ve been helping clients with public and hybrid cloud deployments for years, it’s been a “cobbler’s kids” situation, leaving me run more than a dozen websites and applications from my home server.

At this point, there’s no compelling reason to maintain everything on-prem. The cloud has made more sense for years and now it’s time to move. Why?

I’ve already moved the first batch of websites and expect to migrate the rest this next month.

Technically, I’ll still need a small machine to host my home automation VM. Downsizing from a 2U server to a silent Intel NUC? Not bad.
