WANdisco, Databricks Partner to Migrate On-Premises Hadoop Analytic Workloads with LiveMigrator to Azure Databricks
SAN RAMON, Calif., July 16, 2019 — WANdisco, the LiveData company, announced today a partnership with Databricks, the leader in unified analytics and founded by the original creators of Apache Spark, to accelerate and dramatically simplify the migration of on-premises Hadoop analytics workloads to Azure Databricks.
WANdisco’s LiveMigrator effortlessly migrates petabytes of unstructured data to the cloud in one pass, rather than costly and risky multiple attempts that can take three to six months and block users from making changes. LiveMigrator provides non-blocking and continuous data migration, automatic transition from Hadoop to Delta Lake with Azure Databricks, while enabling a hybrid cloud architecture for migrating production applications. Delta Lake provides ACID transaction support and schema enforcement that delivers reliable data lakes at scale and makes datasets ready for downstream analytics.
To undergo digital transformation, many organizations migrate to Azure to take advantage of its modern data and AI services. Bringing the WANdisco Fusion Platform capabilities with its patented and secure consensus technology, bi-directional selective replication system, and ultra-fast non-blocking scanner together with Azure Databricks makes it seamless and efficient to migrate on-premises Hadoop analytics workloads.
“By combining WANdisco’s LiveMigrator with Delta Lake, enterprises get the best of both worlds – seamless and secure migration of petabyte-sized data to the cloud and the power of strong, cloud-based analytics,” said WANdisco CEO and co-founder David Richards. “With this partnership, enterprises have a powerful option to quickly and painlessly move their organization to the cloud and take advantage of increased productivity, security and insightful data analytics available to employees anywhere at any time.”
“As organizations modernize their IT infrastructure to support AI initiatives, transitioning to the cloud for agility and efficiency is a key component. Rightfully so, organizations want to migrate from legacy on-premises infrastructure to reliable data lakes at scale, which is not only made possible, but simplified with WANdisco and Azure Databricks,” said Michael Hoff, senior vice president of Business Development and Partners at Databricks.
