Microsoft suggests using Azure Site Recovery for such purposes: https://azure.microsoft.com/en-us/services/site-recovery/

I doubt that it can be achieved without ANY downtime due to relatively high latency between your site and Azure cloud.

@Andrew, excellent article and great read!!!

The VM in question is running a SQL database with 24/7 access required, so following the article will mean, get everyone off the server and then convert it and upload it to Azure, this downtime wont be suitable, but perhaps as a initial poc.

@Vlad: Azure site recovery looks like the one I should be looking into for this.
Thanks Both

You may want to look at Double Take MOVE then!

$200-$300 a MOVE!
