I am considering upgrading from SAM Broadcaster to SAM Cast but I am dreading rebuilding all my music and station settings. Is there any sort of migration service or assistance available for this process?

That's more of a downgrade, isn't it?
SAM Broadcaster is a full automation system, whereas SAM Cast is only an encoder without any music management capabilities whatsoever.

If your question was simply about updating SAM Broadcaster 4.x to the 2015.x version, you can just install the new version on top and it will use the very same database, including all your old library files and settings.

That's the upgrade to the newest version of SAM Broadcaster (including a 12 months update subscription, once the 12 months are over, you can either renew the subscription or keep running at the version you have then [i.e. receive no more updates, but the software keeps working])

OK but is that a cloud base server and software?

Not really, no.
SAM Broadcaster stays just the same.

You get a SAM Vibe subscription on top, which is in fact an internet based stream management tool with included streaming server.
And you can control some parts of SAM Vibe via the interface of SAM Broadcaster and stream live through the server of Vibe, but that's where the links between the two end.
