WANdisco announced a partnership with analytics firm Databricks to aid in the migration of on-premises analytics workloads to Azure Databricks. Azure Databricks is an Apache Spark-based engineering and machine-learning platform offered by Microsoft as an integrated first-party service.
Wandisco is offering its LiveMigrator product to the effort, which enables migration from a petabyte of unstructured data with a single scan, rather than multiple recursive scans.
David Richards, CEO and Chairman, commented: “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. With this partnership, enterprises have a powerful option to quickly and painlessly move their organisation to the cloud and take advantage of increased productivity, security and insightful data analytics available to employees anywhere at any time.”
