Launch of LiveAnalytics for cloud migration

Solution offers live insights during migration from on premise to cloud

WANdisco (LSE: WAND), the live data company,has today announced the release of LiveAnalytics to provide live business insights when migrating Hadoop analytic workloads from on-premises to Spark-based analytics in the cloud. This solution allows both migrated and migrating data to be immediately available for analysis.

LiveAnalytics works in tandem with WANdisco's LiveMigrator, its petabyte-scale, non-blocking, single scan data migration technology launched 11 June 2019. Customers that are looking to modernise their analytics platform for machine learning and AI using Spark based systems such as Databricks, are able to have immediate access to data in the cloud for processing. Legacy market solutions would have to take a batch transfer approach leading to inconsistent results.

The launch of this solution further advances WANdisco's complementary suite of scalable LiveData solutions for cloud. WANdisco's technology covers the entire data journey from on premise to cloud through LiveMigrator (enabling single scan, non-blocking movement to the cloud), LiveAnalytics (continuous data analytics during cloud migration) and WANdisco's LiveData for Hybrid and Multi-cloud solution.

David Richards, Chief Executive Officer and Chairman of WANdisco, commented:

'With WANdisco LiveMigrator, we solved the problem of moving petabyte scale data to the cloud without interruption to business operations. With LiveAnalytics, we have increased the scope of that vision.

'Enterprises that wish to modernize their analytics platform by leveraging Spark in the cloud can now migrate on-premises Hadoop analytics without interrupting their analytics processing, creating a seamless transition from Hadoop to Spark.

'With WANdisco's suite of complementary technologies, enterprises are now truly free to choose the analytics platform they want in the cloud and make the best decision for the business as a whole.'
