You may have seen our recent announcement about the availability of a SnapLogic Snaplex for Azure in the Microsoft Azure Marketplace. This is the latest development in our growing partnership with Microsoft, and a huge step forward in our support for Microsoft customers adopting a cloud-centric or hybrid cloud infrastructure.
Why is SnapLogic a good fit for Microsoft cloud services? The SnapLogic Elastic Integration Platform architecture is naturally well-suited for consuming and moving large data sets to and from the cloud and for cloud-to-ground data flows, so it’s the ideal data integration solution for Microsoft Azure data stores, HDInsight (Spark and Hadoop clusters in the cloud) and Cortana Intelligence solutions.
We also support Microsoft customers with Snaps – our pre-built intelligent connectors – for Azure SQL Data Warehouse, SQL Database and Blob Storage, plus on premises SQL Server, Microsoft Dynamics, Active Directory and more. So we’re able to support Microsoft customers whether they are operating completely on premises, in the cloud, or a combination of the two.
As noted in the announcement, we are pleased to partner with Microsoft to help democratize business analytics with fast, self-service connectivity between data sources and Microsoft cloud solutions. The combination of SnapLogic, Microsoft Azure and the Cortana Intelligence Suite (formerly Cortana Analytics) delivers seamless ‘analytics-as-a-service’ for the enterprise.
Coming soon: more details about our support for Microsoft HDInsight. Stay tuned…
