WANdisco makes LiveData platform for Azure generally available

The service automates on-premises data migration to Azure cloud

WANdisco has announced the general availability of LiveData Platform for Microsoft Azure.

The native Azure service enables businesses to migrate petabytes of Hadoop data and Hive metadata to the cloud with no downtime or risk of data loss, even when the source data is actively changing.

Additionally, automated migration of on-premises data accelerates the time to value from months to days. 

Backed by Azure Resource Manager (ARM), LiveData Platform for Azure includes native integration support for Azure Portal and Azure Command Line Interface (CLI). Migration of individual data sets is done through the source storage system in one pass, reducing scanning overhead.

Furthermore, the service employs the familiar pay-as-you-go (PAYGO) consumption model. Charges appear on customers’ Azure bills.

"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 David Richards, WANdisco CEO and chairman. 

Richards added, "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."

LiveData Migrator for Azure users can also leverage standard Azure features including Role-Based Access Control, Active Directory, Azure Policy enforcement, and Activity Log integration.

The service can be installed on an edge node of the Hadoop cluster. Deployment only takes a few minutes and does not impact ongoing operations. 

"With LiveData Platform for Azure integrated with ADLS Gen2, customers have an opportunity to leverage a purpose-built solution for optimizing their migration costs and accelerating their timelines onto the Azure data platform," said Jurgen Willis, VP of product management at Microsoft Azure Storage. 

"With today's general availability announcement, it's even easier for Azure customers to leverage our analytics offerings to expand their insights capabilities and get immediate value from their Hadoop to Azure migration."
