Carbonite Migrate Case Study

Datacom New Zealand


This case study of Datacom New Zealand is based on an August 2017 survey of Carbonite Migrate customers by TechValidate, a 3rd-party research service.

“As an IaaS provider and large consumer of Azure, we have hundreds of clients that rely on us. Carbonite Migrate has allowed us to transparently migrate out customers from vSPhere to Hyper-V based platforms and in some cases exit existing IaaS platform providers without that provider even being aware of their departure.
