Is there any consideration for the framework or database upgrade for those applications?

Thanks. Yes, the OS will be 2008 R2 or 2012 R2 and SQL either 2012 or 2014. In such case what should i need to consider?

That's good. Well you can start learning about
Azure environment by created a trial subscription (30 days) where you will be able to test everything for that period, from creating web sites and databases in Cloud, using them, deployment, testing etc.
So as a first step - create an account and start learning. You will get a lot of demo regarding Azure deployment which will help you to practice and then learn the
Hope this will help.

Hi Mostafa, Planning to host our application inside IIS, from Azure Virtual Machine. Just would like to make sure is any factors needs to be considered for this? Thanks.

If you use VM within Azure, with IIS and SQL server within it, then there will be no difficulties as IIS setup and SQL Server database manage would be similar like other server outside cloud.
You can try learning how to create a VM and use it in Azure, you can try within the Trial period as much as it supports within the credit which is $210 for 30 days. If you create a VM, most of the costs will go there, other services are not so costly in
comparison to VMs.

Azure can be used in 3 ways. they are:
1. Infrastructure as a Service - Azure will give you the platform and you can create your custom Virtual Machine running the OS you need. This means you do everything manually i.e. you will have to install IIS, you will have to install SQL Server and you
will have to install your app. You will need to make sure you maintain your VM regularly i.e. patching updates etc.
2. Platform as a Service - Azure will take care of the infrastructure for you and you will have to just worry about you application. For e.g. Azure Web App let you host a Web App on Azure and Azure will take care of the VM/IIS/Hosting. You don't have to
worry about VM at all and you don't have to patch/update VM. All taken care by Azure. With PaaS you get scaling of your app with just a button click and other benefits
3. Software as a Service - Azure will provide certain software which can be readily consumed without you having to worry about installing. For e.g. SQL Server. You can provision a new SQL Server on Azure and create databases. You pay for the storage.
As you can see - for your scenario - if you can upgrade .NET version to 4.0 go with Azure Web Apps. If you cannot upgrade your .NET version then you will have to create your own VM on Azure, install IIS and deploy your web app. In any case you will need
to use SQL Azure, create a server, create a data base and import data.
