Offline media import for Azure

Migrate your offline media to Azure with our partners

Microsoft Azure provides the flexibility and tools you need to store and use your data.

The cloud solution for data storage

For security and scalability, the Microsoft Azure cloud is an ideal place to store your data. From low-cost archive storage to high-performance, SSD-based storage, you choose the speed of access and corresponding tier – we’ll take care of the rest. When your data is available in Azure, you’ll be able to unlock higher-value scenarios for analysis, transformation and distribution.

Options for data usage

Azure offers several ways to use your cloud data. Store it in a long-term archive as part of your disaster recovery solution. Use the information to drive creative solutions; for example, to provide video-on-demand content. Or, use analytics services such as HDInsight to evaluate your data, deriving deeper insights.
