More Azure Updates
Microsoft outlined a number of additional Azure-related updates including news about Azure Data Box, a solution for moving large data volumes to Azure when the network can't be utilized. Microsoft announced the general availability of Azure Data Box Heavy, which offers up to 1 PB of storage capacity (and which gets transferred to Azure by shipping the device to an Azure data center, where the data is uploaded).
In other Azure updates, Microsoft unveiled new capabilities for the Azure Migrate tool. They include ISV integration--to help with choosing the ideal tool for each migration--as well as an "integrated migration journey" for apps, data and servers.
Meanwhile, the new Azure AI Accelerate Program launching at Inspire will empower partners to more quickly bring AI solutions to market, Microsoft said. Managed partners will be eligible for the program as of July 14.
