WANdisco and Enable Data Join Forces to Quickly Migrate Hadoop Analytical Workloads to Databricks in the Azure Cloud

July 23 2019

SAN RAMON, Calif. and MINNEAPOLIS, July 23, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- WANdisco (WAND.L), the LiveData company, and Enable Data, a leading provider of advanced data, application and cloud engineering services, announced a partnership to accelerate the migration of data and analytics workloads to Microsoft Azure Cloud. The integration between Azure Databricks, WANdisco and Enable Data provides a proven, scalable solution that offers non-blocking and continuous data migration. It offers an automatic transition from Hadoop Distributed File System to Azure Data Lake Storage while enabling a hybrid cloud architecture to migrate petabyte-scale data without disrupting analytics applications. Working with Fortune 500 companies, Enable Data has collaborated with Databricks for nearly four years and is a Microsoft Certified Partner with more than 20 years’ experience successfully working with data lakes, cloud migrations, distributed processing engines and data science platforms.

“I’m excited by the partnership between Azure, Databricks, WANdisco and Enable Data, which will enable customers to accelerate their adoption of cloud services and remove risk in moving production Hadoop environments to the cloud,” said Enable Data founder Chris Mische. “The partnership puts customers in a position to scale their data platforms by incorporating additional data sets and to support business use cases.”

The migration of complex and vitally important big data to the Azure Cloud is critical to maximize modern data and AI services for organizations seeking digital transformation. Data and analytics fuel business decision making and continues to mature as more data is generated, and analytics advance into prescriptive and learning algorithms. Data must be accessible on the cloud or within a hybrid architecture, however, to maximize these services. 

With LiveMigrator, enterprise can automate the seamless migration of on-premise data to the cloud while WANdisco's Fusion technology maintains the migrated data to be consistent with on-premise data, forming a hybrid cloud. Data stays coordinated and secure while enabling enterprises to exactly conform to availability and performance service level agreements. Migrating all data in a single pass without a costly interruption to service, WANdisco LiveMigrator is the only solution that can fulfill data migration at significantly greater speed than previously available.

“Combining WANdisco’s LiveMigrator technology and Enable Data’s big data migration experience provides an automated solution for migrating data to the cloud which is non disruptive to the ongoing business operations and ultimately de-risks the process of migration. We are hugely excited to work alongside Enable Data to accelerate customers’ journey to the cloud,” said WANdisco CEO David Richards.

Bringing the WANdisco Fusion Platform capabilities of distributed computing using the highly secure consensus technology, bi-directional selective replication system, and ultra-fast non-blocking scanner together with Enable Data services creates a technology-agnostic approach to cloud data strategy, guiding businesses toward options that best fit their business needs.

The WANdisco and Enable Data partnership introduces product integrations that allow faster migration of Hadoop analytics workloads and a hybrid big data architecture:

  • Scale and flexibility of cloud, hybrid cloud, and multi-cloud to be purpose built
  • Machine learning and analytics availability for extracting insights from data as well as approaches to automating decision making capabilities
  • Advanced infrastructure at your service to increase compute power and storage risk-free
  • Decouple persistent clusters, separating storage from compute
  • Provide uninterrupted on-premises operations ingestion, creation or data use during migration
