African expansion for Sheffield data specialist with financial services deal

A data specialist dually-headquartered in Yorkshire and the US is set to grow its footprint in Africa with its latest deal.

WANdisco, which has bases in Sheffield and San Ramon in California, has announced it has secured a new contract with a South African-based financial services group.

Following the agreement, the unnamed customer will license WANdisco’s LiveData products to migrate data from its on-premise Hadoop cluster to Amazon Web Services S3 - the first of a number of planned phases for the Customer to migrate data and maintain an on-going hybrid cloud.

The new deal represents the third contract the company has secured since launching the LiveData product on AWS in September.

WANdisco SVP of sales, Keith Graham, commented: “We are seeing strong interest in our services and a robust pipeline of deals following the launch of LiveData Migrator on AWS.

“LiveData Migrator’s risk free, zero business downtime capabilities for moving transactional data, combined with its easy to deploy and easy to use interface means customers across several verticals are interested in our services as businesses attempt to stay competitive and agile.

“Our solutions are ideal for hybrid cloud use cases as our LiveData capabilities enable consistent data replication across any number of environments, across any geography, as well as any cloud provider.”
