Microsoft and Attunity simplify data migrations

Attunity and Microsoft have developed a new solution to enable companies to migrate their business data from their existing database systems to Microsoft data platforms.

The new Attunity Replicate for Microsoft Migrations solution simplifies the process of migrating data from commercial and open-source databases – including Oracle, Amazon Redshift, Teradata, IBM Netezza and PostgreSQL – to Microsoft’s on-premise and Azure data platforms.

“Our expanded strategic partnership with Microsoft enables us to jointly engage customers worldwide to drive large-scale migrations to Azure and the Microsoft data platform,” said Shimon Alon, chairman and CEO at Attunity. “Microsoft and Attunity share a vision to help users get value from their data leveraging the platform of their choice. Together we can unlock incredible opportunities for innovation, providing our customers with a universal platform for high-speed data replication to support many important business initiatives.”

Enterprises building data lake solutions on Azure can use Attunity Replicate for Microsoft Migrations to accelerate, simplify and scale data ingestion to support big data initiatives for real-time and streaming analytics, internet of things and machine learning. The solution also provides universal data delivery to many systems including Hadoop, Azure SQL Data Warehouse, Azure Event Hubs. It will soon support Azure BLOB Store, Azure Data Lake Store and Azure HDInsight.

Enterprises using SAP to run their critical business operations can use Attunity Replicate for SAP to deliver live SAP data into their business intelligence and analytics platforms of choice within the Microsoft data platform. There, they can merge SAP data with other business information and leverage tools like Microsoft Power BI to visualise and analyse their data.

“Microsoft is committed to meeting our customers’ needs today, while helping them bridge to the future. Attunity Replicate for Microsoft Migrations offers a robust solution for our customers to replicate their data to the Microsoft data platform, including SQL Server 2017 and Azure data services,” said John Chirapurath, general manager, data platform marketing at Microsoft. "This expedites and simplifies near-zero downtime data migrations with ongoing replication so that our customers can maximise the value of their data.”
