Evernote (印象笔记 in Chinese) has announced plans to migrate all local data to Tencent Cloud iFeng reports (in Chinese). The company said the data migration is expected to be completed in the first half of 2018. The company also revealed they will begin working closely with Tencent Social Network Group (SNG) to integrate its cloud note-taking application and knowledge-sharing platform more fully with users’ social, life, and work.

The US-based notetaking application developer entered the Chinese market in May of 2012 and managed to garner over 4 million users in China just one year after its debut. Globally, Evernote has well over 220 million users totaling 10 billion entities of data, making it one of the world’s largest unstructured data platform in the world.

After all local data is migrated to Tencent Cloud, Evernote and Tencent SNG will extend their cooperation to other areas. “Tencent Cloud will assist Evernote on basic infrastructure, consumer services, corporate services artificial intelligence, and other aspects. We will expand cooperation in breadth and in depth. At the same time, Tencent Cloud will support the Evernote’s localization process in full force,” said Xie Yuefeng, Vice President of Tencent Cloud.
