LiveData migrator launch with Amazon Web Services

Early customer, GoDaddy, using LiveData migrator to transfer 500 TB of data

Businesses can now quickly and efficiently migrate mission critical data at any scale to AWS, within minutes, with zero business disruption and 100% data consistency

WANdisco (WAND.L), the LiveData company, announces the launch of LiveData Migrator, an automated, self-service solution in partnership with Amazon Web Services (AWS). LiveData Migrator enables cloud data migration at any scale by allowing companies of all sizes to easily start migrating Hadoop data from on-premises to AWS within minutes, without the expertise of engineers or other consultants, and even whilst source data sets are under active use.

GoDaddy is an early customer and will utilize LiveData Migrator to migrate 500 TB of HDFS data to Amazon Simple Storage Service (Amazon S3). The Company will operate in a hybrid cloud mode and continue to update Amazon S3 data as changes are made to Hadoop content in the source, so it is immediately available for cloud analytics. The first 70 TB of data was migrated within days with zero on-premise system downtime.

WANdisco has now achieved AWS Migration Competency status with the release of LiveData Migrator and is an Advanced Technology Partner in the AWS Partner Network (APN). WANdisco was one of four APN Partners who collaborated with AWS to define the requirements to cover different use cases, including Hadoop, storage and database data migration, and mainframe data integration.

Migrating large data volumes with traditional approaches, such as transfer devices or distributed copy, requires disrupting the operation of on-premises applications and doesn't cater to data that is modified or created during migration. However, LiveData Migrator works without any production system downtime or business disruption while ensuring the migration is complete and continuous and that any ongoing data changes are replicated to the target cloud environment.

GoDaddy Chief Data and Analytics Officer Wayne Peacock, said:

"GoDaddy often builds applications in-house to best support our growth. However, we found that WANdisco's LiveData Migrator delivered the best time to value solution in the use case of a Hadoop to Amazon S3 data migration and replication. Rather than running an internal time-consuming and costly manual migration project, using LiveData Migrator has helped us avoid disruption to our production processes and made 70 TB of data immediately available for Amazon S3 testing.

Sabina Joseph, Director of Americas ISVs, Amazon Web Services, Inc, commented:

"We are delighted to have APN Partners like WANdisco that exhibit extensive knowledge and proven expertise in migration and replication technology. Customers will benefit from optimizing costs and expanding analytics and insights capabilities leveraging industry leading services like Amazon S3, Amazon EMR and Amazon Athena."

WANdisco CEO and Chairman David Richards, commented:

"Enterprises that want to move their data to the cloud but are concerned about the risks of doing so now have a powerful solution that's self-service and extremely easy to use. Regardless of company size or technical expertise, LiveData Migrator enables businesses to migrate their data risk-free to the cloud on a massive scale without any disruption to business operations. Data can be accommodated without any risk of data loss while modernizing data and applications to stay competitive."

Notes to editors:

 
      --   LiveData Migrator gives enterprises the opportunity 
            to free their systems from the capital constraints 
            of acquiring storage hardware by leveraging Amazon 
            S3 and associated services. 
      --   Reconciliation at scale is costly and cannot guarantee 
            a completely consistent data outcome. The overhead 
            required to achieve non-disruptive, no-downtime big 
            data migration is significant due to repeated scans, 
            systems out of sync and manual intervention for anticipated 
            failures and interruptions. 
      --   LiveData Migrator delivers fast time to value for 
            migrating unstructured data into cloud storage to 
            then take advantage of machine-learning powered cloud 
            analytics such as Amazon EMR, Databricks or Snowflake 
            to gain valuable business insights. 
      --   LiveData Migrator also enables the transition to 
            a hybrid architecture, where on-premises and cloud 
            environments are kept consistent for active-active 
            replication capabilities, and sets the foundation 
            for a future multi-cloud architecture. 
      --   Through 2022, more than 50% of data migration initiatives 
            will exceed their budget and timeline - and potentially 
            harm the business - because of flawed strategy and 
            execution," according to Gartner in a recent report.(1) 
            This is despite the fact that nearly 70% of enterprises 
            have started moving data to the cloud as part of 
            their digital transformation. (2)
