In Brazil, since July, the platform allows enterprises to transfer large amounts of data to the Microsoft Azure cloud platform
Starting in July, Microsoft will make available in Brazil the Azure Data Box, a device that allows organizations to transfer data to the Microsoft Azure cloud platform in a secure, fast and cost-effective manner. The device uses encryption and allows you to send large amounts of data to the cloud securely. The service can be used for a fixed fee.
Azure Data Box uses popular replication tools to transfer large amounts of data when time, network availability, or cost are limited. Available products are: Data Box, a powerful 100TB capable device that uses standard NAS protocols and popular transcription tools, and features 256-bit AES encryption for more secure transmission. The Data Box Disk and 8TB SSD with USB/SATA interface and 128-bit encryption is designed for customization as needed, as it is available in packages of up to five for a total of 40TB.
Once loaded, devices are cleaned to NIST Special Publication 800-88, Revision 1. In addition to Brazil, the service is available in the US, UK, Western Europe, Japan, Singapore, South Korea, India, South Africa and Australia.
says Rodolpho Ugolini, Director of Marketing for Microsoft Azure.
Previously, Azure users would import data to the cloud by sending hard drives to their data centers. Now, with the device it is possible to use a “self-managed charging” model, using a powerful device that features an “e-ink” screen that acts as a charging label. Through the Azure portal, the customer requests the device and then picks it up at a specified address. The data can then be transferred quickly over the local network using standard protocols such as SMB and CIFS. After shipment, the device must be returned to Microsoft at the address designated for transferring data to the customer’s storage account automatically.
The availability of Azure Data Box is linked to the efforts of Microsoft Mais Brasil’s plan to deliver hybrid cloud infrastructure and services to businesses to contribute to their growth and accelerate digital innovation by expanding cloud infrastructure in the country. Azure services in Brazil, along with the region already in place since 2014 in the country and the Southeast region of Brazil, were announced last year. Launched in October 2020, the plan is a comprehensive initiative focused on three fronts: enabling the digital economy through technology; education, vocational training and entrepreneurship; sustainable growth and social impact.
