Managed services provider Datapipe is extending support to Microsoft Azure public cloud, the company announced Tuesday. As one of the few enterprise-class offerings to provide an end-to-end view and support for Azure, Datapipe expects to accelerate enterprise Azure adoption and migration.
Between Datapipe’s managed services, tools, and experience, the company said it will enable customers to quickly and easily set up new Azure environments with the security and performance enterprise applications require.
Also, the addition of Azure support to Datapipe’s existing AWS managed service offerings allows customers to build across multiple cloud platforms.
The Azure solution features unified application management across Azure and hybrid environments, and best practice architecture planning, implementation, migration, operation and optimization. It also features customized governance and data policy management necessary to security and compliance requirements, Azure account and identity management, flexible, consolidated billing, and complete security monitoring, according to Datapipe.
“Datapipe’s capabilities to manage hybrid environments and ability to incorporate Microsoft infrastructure into hosted private clouds as well as integrate with Azure’s public cloud environments make the company a natural fit to work with Azure,” said Aziz Benmalek, general manager Hosting Service Providers Business, Microsoft. “Microsoft is an established leader in the public cloud market with infrastructure and platform services through Azure, and we’re pleased to see Datapipe offer services for Azure customers.”
The January acquisition of GoGrid by Datapipe was expected to help develop its big data multi-cloud capabilities, and it could also help ease Azure migration and support for some Datapipe customers.
