WANdisco Introduces Migration Solution

WANdisco, the LiveData company, is launching LiveMigrator, a non-blocking technology that migrates petabytes of unstructured data from on-premise data centers to any cloud vendor in one pass.

Rather than implementing costly and risky multiple passes to migrate data, which can take three to six months and block users from making changes, applications can continue to access the on-prem environment - even as data moves to the cloud - with users directing new workloads or queries at cloud assets.

LiveMigrator’s automated process enables enterprises’ on-premise data to be consistent with migrated cloud-based data, forming a hybrid cloud.

Data stays coordinated and secure using WANdisco’s patented Fusion technology while enabling enterprises to comply with strict availability and performance service level agreements.

 Enterprises can next transition to a multi-cloud data environment to enable the benefits of different clouds’ unique or best-performing services for specific objectives. Multi-clouds also help enterprises avoid being locked into one cloud vendor agreement and ensure data consistency, reliability and security.

“WANdisco LiveMigrator resolves a problem that has vexed the IT industry for years - how do you move petabyte scale data to the cloud without stopping your business?” said David Richards, WANdisco CEO and co-founder. “Innovation has been hamstrung by data migration obstacles to the cloud. As more enterprises can more quickly harness the power of cloud computing, my hope is that a flourishing environment will foster the development of artificial intelligence, IoT, and robotic process automation.”

WANdisco LiveMigrator enables enterprises to easily and securely onramp data to the cloud to make the most of their IT resources and move forward with their digital transformation.

WANdisco Fusion’s patented, high-performance consensus technology, called DconE, allows data to move without blocking an applications’ ability to read and write to the file system.

LiveMigrator does not require changes to the dependent application interface nor impede performance, while scaling to petabytes of data seamlessly.

Applications can still access, ingest, and update the data throughout the migration.
