WANdisco Secures First Six-Figure Deal for New Multi-Cloud Platform

WANdisco, the LiveData company, has secured its first multi-cloud contract with one of the largest mobile network operators in the world.

The agreement is valued at approximately £450,000 per annum and will see the network deploy WANdisco’s patented Big Data and Cloud product, WANdisco Fusion for Multi-Cloud.

The contract was won directly by WANdisco, whilst working with Amazon Web Services. The network will deploy Fusion to enable 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.

WANdisco Fusion for Multi-Cloud allows for consistent global data within an organisation, allowing customers to replicate data across a multi-cloud architecture with guaranteed data accuracy. The technology allows for the optimisation of a multi-vendor cloud strategy, which ensures data is concurrently available in different cloud applications. A multi-cloud strategy prevents vendor lock-in and cuts the total cost of ownership by reducing switching costs across different cloud vendors.

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