LiveData Platform for Azure Public Preview


WANdisco   (WAND.L), the LiveData company, announces the Public Preview availability for its LiveData Platform for Microsoft Azure. As highlighted at the Company's Interim Results on 17 September, this is a significant milestone in the roll-out of the Platform as a native service within the Azure Portal, including the availability of metered billing for customers.


Open Public Preview is a critical late stage phase of roll-out across Microsoft Azure ahead of a combined Microsoft and WANdisco go-to-market launch of the capability.


Metered billing is a key functionality that many customers require to conclude purchase decisions and remained the last element of integration to ensure the customer experience was that of any other comparable native Azure service.


WANdisco's LiveData platform is now fully operational as a native data lake migration service within the Azure Portal and available with an easy to use browser-based UI experience and integrated metered billing. Enterprises can begin transactional data migration projects within minutes through Azure's Portal with billing directly feeding into their monthly Azure statement.


In FY21, the Company expects to migrate in excess of 100PB of data to the Azure cloud (with more than 50 customers signed over the year).


To see further details of the Platform and a demonstration of the service's simplicity of end user experience, see here .


WANdisco CEO and Chairman David Richards, commented:


"This is a critical moment in a journey that we have embarked on with Microsoft over years of close partnership and co-development. Open Public Preview ensures that Azure customers can access and pay for WANdisco's unique technology through the Azure Portal itself, with integrated billing making migration as simple as flicking a switch. This step marks the last piece in the puzzle ahead of Microsoft and WANdisco's joint go-to-market campaign to launch the service fully."
