Cloud Data Migration:

For enterprises that plan to be fully migrated (lift-and-shift or re-platform) within the next 12-18 months.

Hybrid Data Estate:

Maintaining on-premises assets for as long as necessary, as enterprises maintain critical on-premises applications while expanding their investment in the cloud.


Taking advantage of cloud economics to maintain scheduled backups.

Disaster Recovery:

Enterprises that wish to decommission certain environments that have to be maintained for regulatory purposes can utilize the cloud as the new secure repository.


Enabling Enterprises to access compute and storage in the cloud when required rather than building infrastructure for peak capacity.

Cloud Analytics:

Bring on-premises Hive workloads to Azure HDInsight, which provides a managed, full-spectrum, open-source analytics service in the Azure cloud.
