As an IT person, you know when your boss asks you to implement Cloud technologies for your company or asks you to completely migrate your infrastructure to the Cloud. Then, you start evaluating migration and deployment tools and at some point you start to face some challenges with it.
You get stuck there or ask your boss to increase the network bandwidth so that you can do faster data migration and without facing any errors while transferring your files to cloud – but you already know that it is very costly and time-consuming?!
Today, most IT professionals are struggling with the same problem of data migration because there is a huge amount of data stored there on-premise and it can take days, weeks or even months to transfer over cloud with a slow network connection.
Well, you don’t have to worry about data migration anymore, you can now import or export terabytes of data from or to the cloud at more than 1000x speed with the Microsoft’s Azure Import/Export service. (At your regional datacenter)
Avoid the hassle and ask us to ship your physical disks directly to Azure—we will upload them for you. Take advantage of the Azure Import/Export service for Azure Storage and accelerate your cloud transition.
- Efficiently migrate large data sets:
Save time and money, compared to network transfer, by shipping physical disks to and from Azure. Import large amounts of initial workload data to Azure or quickly send data to your customer sites for simple content distribution. Create backups of your on-premises data to store in the cloud and then recover data to your on-premises location if needed.
- Keep data private:
When using the Import/Export service, your data is highly-secured every step of the way. Disks are encrypted using Microsoft BitLocker drive encryption and your encryption keys are managed on the Azure portal or Azure REST API over SSL. In the datacenter, we migrate your data from drive to cloud using a fast, private network upload link.
- Ensure data integrity:
Use the Import/Export service to migrate your data with confidence. Built-in checksums and an MD5 hash ensure data integrity. Track and monitor the status of your data migration through logs and audit trails on the Azure portal.
Azure Import/Export Use Cases
Consider using Azure Import/Export service when uploading or downloading data over the network is too slow, or getting additional network bandwidth is cost-prohibitive. Use this service in the following scenarios:
- Data migration to the cloud: Move large amounts of data to Azure quickly and cost effectively.
- Content distribution: Quickly send data to your customer sites.
- Backup: Take backups of your on-premises data to store in Azure Storage.
- Data recovery: Recover large amount of data stored in storage and have it delivered to your on-premises location.
