New AWS win with large financial services firm

WANdisco (WAND.L), the LiveData company, has won a contract with a South African-based financial services group and one of the largest banks in Africa to migrate and manage data from on-premise to AWS ('the Customer').

Following the agreement, the Customer will license WANdisco's LiveData products to migrate data from its on-premise Hadoop cluster to Amazon Web Services S3 ('S3'). This is the first of a number of planned phases for the Customer to migrate data and maintain an on-going hybrid cloud.

WANdisco's solutions will allow the Customer to migrate data accurately and consistently without any production system downtime or business disruption.

Following the initial migration of the data to S3, the Customer intends to keep the replication path on both zones in sync as updates can occur on either zone. WANdisco's unique capability to keep data consistent across locations means that the updates that occur on the S3 buckets can be made by various AWS native application services and be replicated across to the on-premise cluster.

The Customer selected WANdisco following a proof of concept that was funded by AWS. It was the only solution which offered bi-directional replication out-of-the-box and the consistency engine in LiveData Plane simplifies the process of maintaining data parity between on-premises and the cloud. WANdisco sees potential for further projects with the Customer, once this initial data migration and hybrid cloud project is completed over the next few months.

The Customer is an existing AWS customer and has stated aims of building new service capabilities in the cloud to enable a more agile business and to optimize technology expenditure.

This represents the third contract the Company has secured since launching the LiveData product on AWS in September 2020, highlighting the growing momentum and acknowledgement of its LiveData capabilities.

WANdisco SVP of Sales Keith Graham, said:

"We are seeing strong interest in our services and a robust pipeline of deals following the launch of LiveData Migrator on AWS. LiveData Migrator's risk free, zero business downtime capabilities for moving transactional data, combined with its easy to deploy and easy to use interface means customers across several verticals are interested in our services as businesses attempt to stay competitive and agile.

Our solutions are ideal for hybrid cloud use cases as our LiveData capabilities enable consistent data replication across any number of environments, across any geography, as well as any cloud provider."

AWS continues to work with WANdisco to promote LiveData Migrator and on the back of the highly successful migration with GoDaddy, it has published a blog on its AWS Partner Network (APN) blog here , co-authored by Roy Hasson, Senior Manager, Business development - Analytics and Data Lakes at AWS and Jeremy Zogg, Senior Director of Engineering at GoDaddy.

During a recent webinar Jeremy said, "WANdisco provided a solution that addressed our cloud migration challenges. This includes managing the technical debt inherited by our ageing software and hardware, handling the scale of data that we accumulated over the years, and doing so without impacting our business continuity. We couldn't afford any downtime during the migration process. With WANdisco and AWS we were able to get up and running in weeks so we could very quickly begin experimenting with the new cloud environment."
