Please guide me to some resources/documentation regarding the best approach for migrating AEM application from on-prem to Azure cloud. Apart from packaging and and installing applications on cloud what all should be considered?
At this point - our AEM doc manager replied:
There are some details around the Azure Data Store here that might be useful.
May I request you to please provide some steps along with documents for the following :
1) Sizing of server needed in Azure Cloud for installing demo purpose AEM.
2) What all steps / configurations should be taken care .
Thanks in advance.

For details on how to download, install and configure the Azure Connector, see Azure Connector section here: https://helpx.adobe.com/experience-manager/6-4/sites/deploying/using/data-store-config.html
Sizing information can be found here, but its not specific to Azure: https://helpx.adobe.com/experience-manager/6-4/managing/using/hardware-sizing-guidelines.html
If we only talk about the AEM instances themselves (and ignoring all the loadbalancing, networking and access to 3rd party applications), it should be sufficient to copy the complete filesystem from the on-prem server to Azure. That's the 1:1 approach, very simple and comes with the least risk.
When you have that instance running there, you can think about optimizing your setup and use the Azure data store as a followup step.
