Microsoft and Attunity announce strategic partnership for data migration

Attunity Ltd. and Microsoft Corp. announced an expanded strategic partnership for enabling data migration and replication initiatives. With this partnership, Attunity is working with Microsoft to offer a new product, Attunity Replicate for Microsoft Migrations, which is designed to facilitate and accelerate migrations from various database systems to the Microsoft data platform. Microsoft and Attunity have been business partners for over 20 years, and with this new enhanced collaboration the two companies will build on the history with new scenarios for data replication to accommodate a broad range of data integration requirements including migration, analytics, Data Lake and Big Data initiatives.

“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 chief executive officer 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.”

“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 “JG” 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 maximize the value of their data.”

Businesses globally will be able to use Attunity Replicate for Microsoft Migrations to facilitate and simplify migrations from a broad range of commercial and open-source databases, including Oracle, Amazon Redshift, Teradata, IBM Netezza and PostgreSQL to a broad range of Microsoft data platform targets, across on-premises and Azure. Endpoints include SQL Server 2017, now available on Linux, Docker containers and Windows, as well as Azure SQL Database, SQL Server on a VM in Azure, Azure SQL Database Managed Instance, Azure SQL Data Warehouse, Azure Database for MySQL, and Azure Database for PostgreSQL.

A free license of Attunity Replicate for Microsoft Migrations is provided for 12 months, to allow each migration. Customers requiring extended migration periods and additional data sources can purchase such licenses directly from Attunity.

By collaborating on database migrations, the two companies enable and simplify a number of other in-demand data scenarios.
