After fifteen months of development alongside Microsoft, WANdisco has announced the go-to-market launch of its LiveData Platform for Azure.
The Platform is being launched by Microsoft as the preferred solution for Hadoop data lake migrations to Azure, accompanied by a go-to-market campaign.
The launch marks the culmination of years of co-development with Microsoft and the beginning of the next stage in the product’s maturity as an Azure native solution.
WANdisco’s LiveData Platform for Azure enables Hadoop data lake migrations to be managed through the Azure portal. Data migration can be initiated in minutes and with zero business downtime, compared to other cost or time prohibitive alternatives.
As part of the go-to-market campaign, LiveData Migrator will be a featured listing in the Azure portal for Storage, Migration and in the overall Marketplace featured applications giving significant prominence to the solution.
Alongside the launch there will also be an acceleration of internal enablement and promotion amongst Microsoft sellers.
“Alongside Microsoft, we have worked hard over the last 15 months to co-engineer a turnkey experience for Azure customers migrating business-critical Hadoop to Azure,” said David Richards, CEO and Chairman of Sheffield-based WANdisco.
“We are confident that with the ongoing support from Microsoft, this will open up more opportunities to our addressable market by removing the complexity and risk of migration for all customers.
“Enterprises can now accelerate their Digital Transformation and take advantage of the insights from analytical services in Azure.
“We are confident in achieving our goals for 2021, including the signing of over 50 customers on Azure and migrating at least 100PB of data.”
