Automate file transfers and data management with Azure

Businesses of all sorts turn to Microsoft Azure for many of their cloud computing needs. While this powerful service focuses on building, managing, and deploying applications, it can handle all sorts of tasks and host a wide range of modules, containers, and virtual machines. One area where many businesses rely on Azure is in the file transfer and data management realm. With powerful, seemingly limitless cloud storage and processing power, Azure is a smart choice for these tasks. Azure also has some innovative solutions in this space, such as Azure Data Box, a rugged physical device with up to 80 TB capacity that can be shipped to businesses and back to Microsoft Azure. Ground shipping remains the most efficient method of transporting exceedingly high volumes of files. Beyond that, the Azure Data Box is an ideal solution for file transfers and data management to remote areas with poor or no internet connectivity. OpCon is the ideal solution for automating and orchestrating within Microsoft Azure.

Control all your cloud-based and on-premises apps and data flow processes from a single OpCon control panel

Azure has many strengths, but many find its user interface less than optimal. Even those who like the interface tend to agree that adding yet another interface to an already complex array of interfaces isn’t ideal. Azure automation is also weak to nonexistent, depending on the nature of what you’re trying to do. Most businesses who need automation within Azure rely on a third-party automation and orchestration tool.

OpCon is one such tool. OpCon allows businesses to integrate their Azure-hosted applications and processes with the rest of their IT ecosystem, including both cloud and on-premises apps and hardware. Control and orchestration happens within one OpCon control panel, not from a dozen or more proprietary interfaces. By simplifying operations, businesses minimize errors and therefore reduce the total cost of ownership.

What you can do with the OpCon integration with Azure:

OpCon integrates powerfully with Azure, giving you a wide range of powerful abilities within the cloud platform. Below are a handful of the file transfer and data management integrations that allow you to work with Azure files and Azure file sync.

Collect and transfer data from any app

Whatever apps your business runs in Azure, OpCon can interface with them to collect and transfer data. And these actions can be automated and orchestrated as well.

Route collected data to the correct destination

Your business doesn’t have time or capacity to manually move files around. With OpCon orchestration, you can create workflows that automatically collects data and then routes it to the correct location based on data type or whatever parameters you choose.

Every action is documented and auditable

Maintain compliance and keep a documentation trail on every file transfer and data management action your business takes within Azure. Stop getting surprised by the actions of staff or vendors, and be prepared for any audits that come your way.

Manage file transfers

Large or complex file transfers are simpler with OpCon. By reducing the number of interfaces, you’ll lower the likelihood of file transfer errors.

Automate the processes in your data warehousing applications

Whether your data warehousing applications involve Azure Data Box, Azure file sync, or any host of third-party tools, OpCon can automate and orchestrate processes within those applications running in Azure. Create complex, powerful workflows that bridge multiple apps.
