WANdisco has announced general availability of LiveData for MultiCloud, a new addition to its WANdisco Fusion distributed computing platform for enterprises. Powered by a technology called DConE, the company says, LiveData for MultiCloud solves the growing challenge of keeping data available and consistent across multiple cloud environments in different geographies.
According to the vendor, LiveData for MultiCloud will enable enterprises to keep data accessible and accurate while moving to the cloud; operating in mixed hybrid cloud environments; and continuously replicating data across multiple regions, sites and storage systems.
Multi-cloud architecture planning is fast becoming a strategic IT priority with the multi-cloud management market expected to grow to $4.4bn by 2022, according to www.marketsandmarkets.com. As data sources become increasingly distributed across on-premise and multi-cloud environments, there’s a growing demand for new technologies to replace manual operations and legacy data protection tools which are prone to a variety of risks. LiveData for MultiCloud provides enterprise architects access to a distributed platform to enable multi-cloud operations, including data migrations without disruption.
“Due to the rapid pace of innovation in areas like AI, blockchain, and IoT applications, enterprises are no longer working with just one cloud provider,” said WANdisco CEO and co-founder David Richards. “CTOs and CIOs want to move their organizations to multi-cloud architectures to protect themselves from over-reliance on a single cloud vendor and to avoid lock-in. A multi-cloud strategy avoids this, and enables companies to take advantage of each cloud’s unique or best-performing capabilities. LiveData for MultiCloud allows enterprises to select specific clouds for specific jobs to maximize business performance.”
