Learn about Azure cloud storage solutions at Azure Storage Day

By Tony Velcich, Apr 19, 2021

There’s an easy and efficient way to get all your questions answered about Azure cloud storage solutions during the upcoming Azure Storage Day. Organizations are embracing cloud storage solutions and replacing their on-premises storage infrastructure. Gartner stated that, “In 2020, 36% of global corporate enterprise-grade storage petabytes (PBs) were consumed off-premises as part of a cloud consumption service.”1 They expect rapid growth to continue and estimate that by 2025 this number may reach 59% of corporate PBs being consumed off-premises.

How to learn about Microsoft’s Azure cloud storage solutions

Microsoft is not only a benefactor of this growth, but also a driver. The latest innovations from Azure Storage are enabling Azure cloud storage solutions to provide the foundation for all enterprise workloads. On Thursday, April 29th Microsoft will be hosting Azure Storage Day where you can find out more about the latest innovations and Azure cloud storage offerings.

WANdisco is proud to be a close partner with Microsoft and help enterprise customers streamline their migration to Azure cloud storage solutions. Together we introduced WANdisco LiveData Platform for Azure, a turnkey solution for Hadoop-oriented data lake migrations. LiveData Platform for Azure is Microsoft’s preferred solution for Hadoop to Azure migrations. It enables you to deploy and manage your data lake migrations using the same Azure management experience you enjoy today through the Azure portal and Azure CLI. You begin your data lake migration in minutes and not weeks or months like you would with other solutions. Most importantly, LiveData Platform for Azure allows you to begin migrating your Hadoop-oriented data lake into Azure Data Lake Storage with zero business downtime.
