WANdisco Accelerates IBM's shift to Hybrid Cloud
-- WANdisco LiveData Migrator to be integrated into IBM's Big Replicate
-- LiveData Migrator will allow IBM customers to easily migrate
on-premise data to hybrid cloud and multi-cloud infrastructures
WANdisco (WAND.L), the LiveData company, announces that its
existing relationship with IBM has been extended to integrate
WANdisco's LiveData Migrator , into IBM's Big Replicate solution.
LiveData Migrator will allow IBM customers to seamlessly migrate
on-premise data to hybrid cloud and multi-cloud
IBM Big Replicate already features WANdisco's patented LiveData
Plane technology, which enables data consistency within distributed
environments to help clients keep unstructured data accessible,
accurate and consistent across multiple Hadoop distributions.
IBM recently announced that it was updating its cloud portfolio
with new capabilities to focus on its hybrid cloud business, and is
providing its customers with the option to migrate from Cloudera
legacy systems. Cloudera Distribution Hadoop (CDH) and Hortonworks
Data Platform (HDP) will be retired in the coming year without
Cloudera providing a defined migration path.
Big Replicate customers can use WANdisco's LiveData Migrator to
quickly and easily migrate to the Cloudera Data Platform and other
next-generation cloud or cloud-based data management platforms,
such as IBM Cloud, Microsoft Azure, Amazon Web Services or Google
Cloud Platform. Through enabling a multi-cloud solution, WANdisco's
technology avoids vendor lock-in following cloud migration.
With the integration of LiveData Migrator, Big Replicate users
can now start migrating petabyte-scale data within minutes without
the need of engineers or other consultants.
WANdisco has been collaborating with IBM for four years on
various technologies and is pleased that IBM Big Replicate
customers will now have the complete freedom to choose where their
data lives within their enterprises IT infrastructure.
David Richards, CEO and Co-founder of WANdisco said:
"We have been working successfully with IBM for four years and
it is exciting to see our partnership evolve to encompass LiveData
Migrator, our latest product, and provide IBM customers with the
ability to start moving data at petabyte-scale to the cloud in
minutes. With legacy Hadoop platforms being retired over the next
12 months, there is an immediate need for enterprises to consider
their choices for their next-generation analytics platforms."
Holly Vatter, Senior Global Solutions, Product Marketing
Manager, IBM commented in her blog that:
"Keeping data consistent in a distributed environment whether
on-premise, hybrid or multi-cloud, across platforms or regions is a
challenge that IBM Big Replicate LiveData Migrator was built to
handle. Powered by a high-performance coordination engine, it uses
consensus to keep unstructured data accessible, accurate and
consistent regardless of the environment."
