Microsoft is targeting VMWare customers with its new cloud migration service”

SteelFusion is created to deliver a cloud-like experience in to information technology organizations that manage complex distributed remote office/branch office locations. On Monday, Microsoft announced the Azure Data Box, which enables fast and secure data migration to Azure. Now, Microsoft provides a new way to transfer a ridiculous amount of data (100TB) with a rugged 45-pound Data Box to Azure.

Microsoft has also announced a new database migration service that makes it easier to copy or move databases from on premises to its Azure public cloud. The first Azure Stack integrated systems from Dell EMC, Hewlett Packard Enterprise and Lenovo, have now shipped.

"Azure and Azure Stack deliver the industry's only truly consistent hybrid cloud platform, which enabled a unified approach to application development and unlocks completely new use case scenarios, as well as pay-as-you-use pricing". To that end, Microsoft has also announced that its popular SQL Server database is now generally available either on premises or in the cloud-across Windows, Linux and in Docker container environments. This tier also scales up to 30,000 compute Data Warehouse Units.

Azure Hybrid Benefit for SQL Server will let customers maximize existing license investments with discounted rates, further extending the promise of hybrid across our customers' data investments. United Kingdom retailer ASOS is now using this approach to offer customers real-time personalization and recommendations, he added.

All of these updates and enhancements for Azure continue to show Microsoft's commitment to its cloud service. A new Machine Learning Workbench is created to improve AI productivity of these professionals, and brings DevOps to AI development with comprehensive model management and agile experimentation using open tools. The company said it's investing in an Azure Stack Operator-focused Learning Path and a certification exam.

The tech giant will also expand the integrated Azure Security Center capabilities to include monitoring and protecting on-premises systems, to allow for full hybrid cloud security management and threat detection.

During the limited preview period, Azure Migrate will offer discovery, cost analysis, and configuration recommendations for VMware-based environments. The service will be free for all Azure customers and partners, Guthrie said.
