“WANdisco is proud to achieve AWS Migration Competency status,” said David Richards, Chairman and CEO of WANdisco. “Data inconsistencies and downtime are unacceptable as enterprises modernize their business-critical, on-premises data lakes and applications by moving them to the cloud. WANdisco makes it easy to immediately migrate this data while minimizing IT resource involvement with automated migration capacities. Our team is dedicated to helping enterprises to accelerate their AWS analytics journey with the industry’s most advanced cloud migration and replication platform, along with leveraging the agility, breadth of services, and pace of innovation that AWS provides.”

AWS is enabling scalable, flexible, and cost-effective solutions from startups to global enterprises. To support the seamless integration and deployment of these solutions, AWS established the AWS Competency Program to help customers identify Consulting and Technology APN Partners with deep industry experience and expertise.

Most enterprises are well into their digital transformation journey, and cloud migration initiatives are a big part of it. WANdisco LiveData Migrator supports the key use cases for cloud migration and replication of business-critical data to take advantage of cloud economics, flexibility, tooling and machine learning-based cloud analytics capabilities. 

These use cases include one-way migration, hybrid data estate, disaster recovery, backup and cloud burst. WANdisco solves for all migration scenarios and addresses concerns, delivering cloud migrations with zero downtime, ensuring data consistency while changes occur, and matching or exceeding the same data integrity levels once that data lands in Amazon Simple Storage Service (Amazon S3).
