WANdisco Provides the LiveData Platform on Microsoft Azure

WANdisco, the LiveData company, is releasing the LiveData Platform for Microsoft Azure, allowing 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 days.

“We are determined to close the cloud value gap, and the general availability of the LiveData Platform for Azure is a significant milestone in that journey. It’s bringing the benefits of the Azure cloud even closer to enterprises of scale,” said WANdisco CEO and chairman David Richards. “With this Azure-native service offering, customers are getting even greater access to a proven solution for accelerating cloud transformation without business disruption or downtime. 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.”

The LiveData Migrator for Azure feature ensures that customers can maintain business continuity while data is transmitted securely, and with the utmost integrity, to Azure Data Lake Storage (ADLS).

With its turnkey deployment and no downtime, customers can recoup their data and analytics investments sooner while reducing data engineering and migration costs by orders of magnitude, according to the vendor.

Further, strategic Azure consulting and system integrators like Avanade, Infosys, Insight, Neudesic and Wipro, have all developed offerings leveraging LiveData Migrator for Azure. This availability will make this feature even more accessible to the enterprises they serve.

LiveData Platform for Azure is powered by a fully capable ARM (Azure Resource Manager) resource provider that enables a native integration with Azure Portal and Azure Command Line Interface (CLI).

Now, customers are able to deploy and manage their data lake migrations while enjoying the same Azure management experience they do today.

LiveData Migrator for Azure provides the same pay-as-you-go (PAYGO) consumption modeland charges appear on the Azure bill they currently receive. The billing model provides customers a convenient way to track and monitor usage with no need for new vendor contracts or approvals.
