Azure Migration And Modernization Program
Microsoft is expanding programs and extending security updates to support cloud migration and modernization.
The Azure Migration and Modernization Program (AMMP), previously called the Azure Migration Program, now covers more migration and modernization offerings across apps, infrastructure and data, including support for Azure Arc, a set of technologies that brings Azure’s cloud management capabilities and services to virtually any environment.
“Azure Arc is key to our approach to helping customers operate hybrid seamlessly,” Chirapurath said. “Enabled by Azure Arc, customers can also bring Azure services to any existing infrastructure including other clouds to take advantage of Azure’s benefits anywhere. This includes running managed databases like Azure SQL and Azure Postgres on the infrastructure of your choice, as well as extending machine learning to the edge in order to run models close to where the data lives.”
Microsoft also is expanding AMMP with new support for Azure Spring Cloud and Azure Cosmos DB.
