General Availability of LiveData Platform for Azure

Significant step achieved in converting pipeline customers, providing assurance for business-critical data operations

WANdisco (LSE: WAND), the LiveData company , announces the General Availability of the LiveData Platform for Azure. This is a significant achievement for the Group and a critical step in converting WANdisco's new business pipeline. General Availability provides customers with greater assurance when embarking on Petabyte scale data migration projects, providing the confidence that this business-critical operation can be completed without disruption or downtime.

General Availability marks the completion of a multi-year joint project with Microsoft to integrate WANdisco's technology into the cloud fabric, the most important initiative in WANdisco's journey to date. General Availability is accompanied by a continued joint go-to-market strategy for WANdisco and Microsoft Azure.

LiveData Migrator for Azure allows customers to automate the migration of their on-premises data lake to the cloud without business risk or operational downtime, accelerating time-to-value from months or years to a matter of days. The solution is offered natively within Azure, including the same pay-as-you-go (PAYGO) consumption model, with charges appearing on the same Azure bill that customers already receive.

Strategic Azure Consulting and system integrators like Avanade, Infosys, Insight, Neudesic and Wipro have all developed offerings leveraging LiveData Migrator for Azure which will be bolstered by General Availability.

David Richards, CEO and Co-founder of WANdisco said:

"This is a historic moment for WANdisco that places our technology as the key to unlock the Azure ecosystem for global blue-chips. A key learning from H1 was that our customers see General Availability with Microsoft as a critical step in launching their cloud migration journey with WANdisco and the impact of achieving this step cannot be understated. Customers now have the assurance they need that WANdisco can migrate their business to the Azure cloud without disruption or downtime.

"We are determined to close the cloud value gap and the only way to deliver that is through offering a truly cloud-centric consumption solution, native within Azure and charged pay-as-you-go on the same Azure bill customers already receive. As more enterprises look to derive value from massive, distributed datasets, we see a tremendous opportunity to help them realize the full potential of the cloud."

Jurgen Willis, VP of Product Management, Microsoft Azure Storage said:

"With LiveData Platform for Azure integrated with ADLS Gen2, customers have an opportunity to leverage a purpose-built solution for optimizing their migration costs and accelerating their timelines onto the Azure data platform. With today's General Availability announcement, it's even easier for Azure customers to leverage our analytics offerings to expand their insights capabilities and get immediate value from their Hadoop to Azure migration."

Azure customer, Cristian Camilo Garcia Serna, Data Architect, Tuya, SA said:

"With WANdisco's LiveData Platform for Azure, we were able to quickly begin migrating our business-critical data, significantly accelerating our time-to-value in the cloud. The efficiency enabled by WANdisco is unmatched. It's a dramatic step up from manual migration alternatives, which are both time-consuming and costly."

Dael Williamson, Global CTO, Data Platform at Avanade, said:

"The clear winners are Azure customers, who can now manage Hadoop data migrations with unprecedented speed. With WANdisco's data-first approach, customers can convert selected datasets into business outcomes and maintain absolute confidence that their data is exactly the same everywhere, at any given time. With LiveData Platform for Azure, customers can now easily invest in the next-gen capabilities that are native in the public cloud."
