Komprise, a specialist in analytics-driven unstructured data management and mobility, has extended its Microsoft collaboration with the availability of Komprise Intelligent Tiering for Azure. Most organizations are spending 30% or more of their IT budgets on managing unstructured file data, which continues to grow rapidly. This Microsoft Azure Marketplace solution that gives customers access to file analysis and tiering to and within Azure. Customers can acquire this without purchasing the full Komprise Intelligent Data Management platform.
Organizations can accelerate their cloud journey and gain better ROI from cloud migrations by first transparently tiering data from any cold NAS that has not been accessed in months to Azure Blob Storage. This cuts an average of 70% of costs for storage, backup, and disaster recovery. Second, an organization with file data in Azure Files or popular cloud NAS platforms can use Komprise Intelligent Tiering for Azure to tier data to lower-cost Azure Blob Storage automatically via easy-to-configure policies.

“More than 100 enterprises are already using Komprise through the Microsoft Azure Storage Migration Program because of its simplicity and convenience,” says Krishna Subramanian, COO of Komprise. “The new Komprise Intelligent Tiering for Azure extends this ease of use by allowing customers to use services such as Microsoft Purview, Microsoft Defender for Storage, Azure Synapse Analytics, and Azure AI with data copied or tiered from on premises. Azure customers can use their existing Azure contracts and utilize their Azure Consumption Commitments through this specially priced Komprise offer in the Azure Marketplace.”
“Every organization in the current environment is looking to do more with less while reducing costs. The rising cost of on-premises storage is a pain point that we are pleased to tackle in collaboration with Komprise,” says Jurgen Willis, VP Azure Specialized Workloads and Storage. “Since Komprise tiers data to Microsoft Azure in native readable format and provides data workflows, customers can cut costs and leverage the full power of Azure services to address AI, big data, security, and compliance use cases.”
