Last week at Microsoft Connect();, we announced two new benefits to assist cloud migration for our users who have Visual Studio Subscriptions. If you missed the event or want to watch the on-demand trainings, check out the Connect(); event page. If you’re a current Visual Studio subscriber, activate your new benefits to get started right away. To learn more about our developer subscriptions and programs visit the Visual Studio website.

Here are more details on the two new benefits:

CAST Highlight

Developers need critical insights on their software when migrating to the cloud. With CAST Highlight, Visual Studio Enterprise subscribers can rapidly scan their application source code to identify the cloud readiness of their applications for migration to Microsoft Azure and monitor progress of their app both during and after a migration. Check out this video from CAST to see it in action.

Visual Studio Enterprise subscribers can get a free, full-featured one-month subscription to CAST Highlight for up to five apps per subscriber.

UnifyCloud’s CloudPilot

Developers also need solutions that enable quick and easy app migration to the cloud. CloudPilot helps move apps to Microsoft Azure in a few easy steps, including identifying all required changes down to the line of code for successful migration to containers, virtual machines, App Service, Azure SQL, and SQL Managed Instance. See this video from UnifyCloud to learn more about CloudPilot.

Visual Studio Enterprise subscribers are eligible for two 90-day free licenses to the full-featured CloudPilot, while Visual Studio Professional subscribers can take advantage of one 30-day license to scan apps and databases of millions of lines of code in minutes.
