Yorkshire data firm secures $750k deal with China phone giant
Live data company WANdisco has secured a contract with one of the largest manufacturers of mobile handsets in the world.
The deal will see the firm, which is dually headquartered in Sheffield and San Ramon in California, deploy the unnamed manufacturer’s patented ‘Fusion’ platform.
Founded in 2005, WANdisco specialises in distributed computing, using shared component Distributed Coordination Engine (DConE).
Having already established a relationship with Chinese global e-commerce firm Alibaba, the firm hopes that this latest contract will bolster its plans to expand across Asia.
David Richards, chief executive officer and chairman of WANdisco, commented: “We are seeing great promise in the China region, which has adopted data on a mass scale to address the unique challenges of serving a 1.4bn population.
“This is the second deal secured in the region through our direct sales channel this year, in this instance with one of the world’s largest handset manufacturers.
“Despite China being a complex and often challenging market, we are seeing strong interest in our Fusion technology throughout the region.”
