WANdisco partners with Neudesic to migrate Hadoop analytical workloads to the cloud
LONDON: WANdisco, the live data company, has announced a partnership with Neudesic, an international business and technology consulting firm, to accelerate the migration of data and analytics workloads to Microsoft Azure.
Neudesic supports hundreds of customers, across a variety of industry verticals, who require strategic advice and solutions to help them design and manage their cloud infrastructure. In line with that focus and their expertise around the Azure platform, Neudesic were awarded the Microsoft 2019 MSUS Partner Award for Intelligent Cloud - AI and Machine Learning. This partnership will bring together WANdisco's Live Migrator solution with Neudesics' Cloud Services to help customers build their cloud infrastructure and migrate their data, at scale, to hybrid cloud environments.
Many organizations face the challenge of migrating their intricate and business critical big data environments from on-premise to the Azure Cloud. To take full advantage of the data analytics and cloud services which Azure offers, the data must be accessible on the cloud or within a hybrid architecture.
LiveMigrator's automated process enables enterprises' on-premise data to be seamlessly migrated to the cloud and WANdisco's core Fusion technology keeps the migrated data consistent with on-premise data, forming a hybrid cloud. WANdisco's LiveMigrator is the only solution that can migrate petabyte scale data to the cloud with no downtime and a single scan of the data, compared to the inefficiency of multiple recursive scans. This provides the customer with a solution that minimizes risk and maximizes efficiency.
David Richards, Chief Executive Officer and Chairman of WANdisco, commented: "Combining WANdisco's unique LiveMigrator technology and Neudesic's vast experience in migrating customers to the cloud, offers a best-in-class approach to migrating analytic workloads to the cloud. Customers benefit from a more efficient migration with lower operational risk and the option of maintaining a true hybrid cloud, mitigating the need for a hard cut-over."
Orion Gebremedhin , Senior Director of Technology, Data & Analytics at Neudesic, said: "Neudesic's strategic approach to helping clients architect analytics solutions leverages pre-built frameworks and IP that help realize and utilize the full potential of their data more quickly. Our partnership with WANdisco, extends Neudesic's data migration capabilities and enables our clients to benefit from cloud innovation by enabling them with new machine learning and AI opportunities."
