Use cases

Whether you have already embarked on your digital transformation journey or plan to soon, the use cases around data lake migration usually fall into the following scenarios.

Hadoop Migration

Hybrid Cloud

Disaster Recovery

Cloud Data Migration

Fully-automated data migration with zero disruption allows your users and systems to continue operating while migration is underway. Migrate to Azure Data Lake Storage, the only cloud storage service purpose-built for big data analytics.

Cloud Analytics

Once in ADLS, the data is available to Azure analytics services such as HDInsight, Synapse, and Azure Databricks.

Hybrid Data Estate

Maintain on-premises assets for as long as necessary. Organizations can maintain critical on-premises applications while expanding their investment and innovation in the cloud.

Disaster Recovery

Enterprises that wish to decommission costly on-premises environments, which sit idle and are only maintained for regulatory purposes, can utilize the cloud as the new secure repository.

Cloud Burst

Enables enterprises to access compute and storage in the cloud when required, rather than building out on-premises infrastructure for peak capacity.


Take advantage of cloud economics and maintain scheduled backups to the cloud.

LiveData Platform for Azure

Azure-native service offering

LiveData Platform for Azure features WANdisco’s patented distributed coordination engine, which ensures data consistency, accuracy, and accessibility across all environments—on-premises, hybrid (on-premises and cloud), hybrid cloud, multi-region or multi cloud.
