- Amazon Web Services-to-Azure migration
- Support for recovery in Azure for VMWare and physical servers, to bolster existing support for Hyper-V workloads. This now enables customers to use a secondary site, private cloud or Azure as the disaster recovery site within one Microsoft solution.
Azure Site Recovery will also be available to Microsoft Operations Management Suite (OMS) customers to deliver hybrid cloud management capabilities unmatched by any other cloud vendor.
“As the leading hybrid cloud vendor, we’re committed to providing both management technologies and infrastructure to power hybrid clouds around the world,” said Mike Schutz, GM for cloud platform marketing at Microsoft. “This commitment is evident through other recent announcements at Ignite. For example, with Microsoft Azure Stack, we will bring Azure services in your datacenter to improve service delivery models and increase agility. In addition, Windows Server 2016 is more cloud-inspired than ever with innovations like Nano Server, a purpose-built OS, to power born-in-the-cloud applications, containers, and on-premises software-defined datacenter solutions. We also continue to see growth of hybrid services like ExpressRoute, which has nearly 20 partners and over 100 connectivity providers across the globe.”
