Komprise Partners With Microsoft

The new program gives customers access to file-migration at no cost and complements the Azure Migrate portfolio which customers use to automate and orchestrate the migration of servers, desktops, databases and web applications to Azure. Komprise is one of a select few Microsoft ISVs chosen for this program.

Migrating on-premises applications such as file workloads, HPC and analytics requires identifying and migrating tens of terabytes to several petabytes of file data stored on NAS and other on-premises storage to the right tier of Azure Files, Azure NetApp Files and Azure Blob Storage. Customers often guess at which data to migrate and to where and these migrations can be laborious, error-prone and slow when moving large data sets.

Komprise Elastic Data Migration eliminates the cost and complexity of managing file data by providing analytics-driven data migration to Azure without creating any vendor lock-in:

  • Provides analytics across existing NAS (e.g. NetApp, Dell, Windows) to identify which data sets to migrate and to which tier of Azure.
  • Systematically migrates files 27x faster. Elastic Data Migration scales elastically according to the distribution of your shares, directories and files.
  • Ensures data integrity by migrating all file attributes and permissions with MD5 checksums on every file.

Customers will have the opportunity to upgrade to the full product, Komprise Intelligent Data Management, which means they can transparently tier across Azure Storage platforms, cutting 70% of cloud costs. Data is tiered natively, allowing users and applications none disruptive access. Organizations can leverage the Komprise Global File Index to query, tag and move the right data to the right place for AI, ML and data processing.

By working closely with the Microsoft Azure Storage team, we can help enterprises accelerate their path to the cloud for file and object data and make their data available to cloud-based data lakes and AI services without locking their data to proprietary storage technology,” says Krishna Subramanian, president and COO, Komprise.

Moving data to Microsoft Azure Storage needs to be fast and easy for our customers,” said Jurgen Willis, VP, optimized workloads and storage, Azure. “We are excited to work with Komprise on delivering a valuable service so that our customers can more easily and reliably move file data from expensive on-premises NAS devices to the cloud native storage services on Azure.

The Azure File Migration Program offers free software licensing, an onboarding session, and limited access to support after selecting the Azure-sponsored offer from the Azure Marketplace.
