LiveData Migrator for Azure

LiveData Migrator for Azure is a core Azure service that enables users to migrate petabyte-scale Hadoop data and Hive metadata to the Azure cloud with zero application downtime and zero risk of data loss even while the source data is under active change.


Native Integration with Azure Resources

As part of the LiveData Cloud Services for Azure offering, LiveData Migrator for Azure is deeply integrated with native Azure resources such as Azure Portal, CLI, Role Based Access Control, Active Directory, Azure Policy enforcement and Activity log integration. This tight integration provides customers with a turnkey user experience similar to other native Azure services. Further integration with Azure Billing means customers are billed directly through Azure, so there is no need to add a new vendor contract or require additional vendor approvals.

“Customers have a significant opportunity to optimize costs and expand analytics and insights capabilities by moving their on-premise data lakes to the cloud. WANdisco LiveData Migrator and LiveData Plane are the first offerings to provide a fully integrated and turnkey experience for customers migrating Hadoop data into Azure Data Lake Storage seamlessly and without business disruption.”
Tad Brockway, Corporate Vice President for Azure Network and Storage

Use Cases

Adopt Azure Data Lake Storage Gen2

ADLS is the only cloud storage service that is purpose-built for big data analytics. It is designed to integrate with a broad range of analytics frameworks enabling a true enterprise Data Lake, maximized performance via true filesystem semantics, and scalability to meet the needs of the most demanding analytics workloads.

Cloud Migration without Downtime

Non-disruptive automated migration reduces the risks involved with large data migration initiatives and allows your users and systems to continue operating while migration is underway.

Cloud Analytics

Bring on-premises Hive workloads to Azure HDInsight, which provides a managed, full-spectrum, open-source analytics service in the Azure cloud.

Key features

Core Service within Microsoft Azure:

Deep integration with Azure resources enables LiveData Migrator for Azure to be deployed at the same time as other native Azure services and with an equivalent user experience.

Support for Native Azure security and manageability:

LiveData Migrator for Azure leverages Azure features such as Role-Based Access Control, Active Directory, Azure Policy enforcement, and Activity Log integration.

Billing integration:

The LiveData Migrator for Azure resource can be created directly from the Azure portal. The LiveData Migrator for Azure service is installed on an edge node of your Hadoop cluster. Deployment can be performed in minutes without impacting current operations, so users can begin migrations immediately.

Self-service user experience:

Migrations are designed to be easy to configure and manage, requiring simple definition of your target environment and full control of exactly what data to migrate and what data to exclude.

Complete and continuous migration:

Migration of the selected data sets are performed with a single pass through the source storage system, eliminating the overhead of repeated scans while also supporting continuous migration of any ongoing changes from source to target, with zero disruption to current production systems.

Hadoop data and Hive metadata migration:

LiveData Migrator for Azure supports migration of HDFS data and Hive metadata to Azure Data Lake Storage (ADLS) Gen2.

Migration at any scale:

LiveData Migrator for Azure migrates data sets at any scale, from terabytes to multi-petabytes, without impact to current production environments. Begin risk-free for small migrations and scale up to multi-petabyte initiatives without needing any additional installation requirements.

Azure Portal and CLI LiveData Extension:

Users can manage the full data migration directly from the Azure portal. Additionally, LiveData Migrator for Azure can be configured and operated from the Azure CLI.

Configurability and control:

You will have the ability to configure the migrations to meet your specific needs. LiveData Migrator for Azure includes standard configuration — such as defining sources, targets, and data to be migrated or excluded — as well as advanced capabilities such as path mapping and network bandwidth management controls.

Metrics and monitoring:

LiveData Migrator for Azure enables hands-off operations by providing information to keep you updated on the migration jobs, from health and status metrics that provide estimates for migration completion, files transferred over time, excluded paths, items that failed to transfer, as well as other real-time insights regarding usage.
