Komprise Partners with Microsoft to Support Microsoft Azure File Data Migration Program


Komprise, a leader in analytics-driven data management and mobility, announces that it has been selected for the Microsoft Azure File Migration Program launched today by Azure. The new program gives customers access to industry leading 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 exclusive program.  

Migrating on-premises applications such as file workloads, high-performance computing (HPC) and analytics requires identifying and migrating tens of terabytes to several petabytes of file data stored on NAS appliances 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. 

Krishna Subramanian, President and COO of Komprise says, “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,”. 

“Moving data to Microsoft Azure Storage needs to be fast and easy for our customers,” said Jurgen Willis, Vice President, Optimized Workloads and Storage. “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.
