WANdisco, the big data specialist based in Sheffield and California, has secured its first multi-cloud contract worth $565,000 with an unnamed client.

The contract, which was secured whilst working with Amazon Web Services, will see the client deploy WANdisco Fusion for Multi-Cloud (Fusion). This enables continuous replication of data across multiple Amazon cloud environments and locations.

This marks the first contract where a client will utilise Fusion for both multi-cloud and multi-tenancy use cases.

The contract was closed and will be recognised in FY 2018.

“It is becoming increasingly unlikely that businesses of this scale will chose to depend on a single cloud vendor for their data requirements,” said David Richards, CEO and Chairman of WANdisco.

“We are seeing businesses with complex data requirements choose multiple suppliers for a range of specialised data use cases.

“This requires data to be replicated across a multi-cloud architecture with guaranteed data accuracy. The only technology that can enable such live data at scale is WANdisco Fusion.

“We built strong momentum during the second half of FY18, leveraging the full power of our sales model and winning contracts which are increasingly recurring in nature, both directly through our salesforce and through our partnerships with IBM, Microsoft and Amazon.”
