Ingram Micro offers free migration to the cloud

Ingram Micro Cloud has announced it is extending its FY20 Free Migration Offer.

The extension is being provided to channel partners as part of Ingram Micro's partnership with Microsoft Corp and AvePoint Inc. 

In response to what the company says has been an enthusiastic response from its channel partners, the offer will be extended through to June 30 this year.

According to Ingram Micro, the free offer enables its channel partners to access a free FLY migration license for easy data migration to the cloud when purchasing net new seats of Office 365 Business Premium or Microsoft 365.

AvePoints FLY migration enables businesses to keep all their source and destination files in sync (including permissions and metadata) to quickly consolidate and migrate their entire on-premises email in bulk or via individual containers. 

AvePoints says partners are provided 24/7 technical support (by phone, chat and email) at no additional cost. Partners can also utilise AvePoints FLY license for easy migration to Office 365 from: file shares, Exchange and Hosted Exchange, Gmail, other IMAP/POP3 mailboxes, Google Drive, Teams, Groups, Slack and SharePoint.

"Your next migration is on us," says Tim Fitzgerald, vice president of channel sales at Ingram Micro Cloud. 

"Our partners and their customers love the ease and convenience of a FLY migration. AvePoint is a trusted provider, and the free FLY license takes away the complexity and anxiety of migrating critical email files and other crucial data to the cloud," he says.

To be eligible for the free license, partners must transact via Ingram Micro Cloud Marketplace and have a minimum of five seats. The offer is open to members of the Ingram Micro Modern Workplace Accelerate programme and requires a net new subscription of Office 365 Business Premium, Microsoft 365 Business, Microsoft E3 or Microsoft E5.

Ingram Micro's portfolio includes vetted security, communication and collaboration, business applications, cloud management services and infrastructure solutions, designed to help its clients monetise and manage the entire lifecycle of cloud and digital services, infrastructure and IoT subscriptions. 

"At Ingram Micro Cloud, we view cloud not just as a single technology, but as a foundational platform to run and drive a whole new way of doing business," says FitzGerald. 

"By leveraging our platforms and ecosystem, cloud service providers, telecom companies, resellers and enterprises can quickly transform and get up and running in the cloud within minutes, with little to no investment," he says.
