AWS GoDaddy LiveData Migrator Webinar


WANdisco (LSE: WAND), the LiveData company, will host a panel discussion in partnership with AWS GoDaddy and Ventana Research titled The Future of Successful Cloud Migration is Now. The live webinar is scheduled for 11am PST on Thursday, November 5th, 2020 - to join please register here .


In this panel discussion, moderator David Menninger of Ventana Research is joined by Roy Hasson, WW Analytics Specialist Leader at AWS and Paul Scott-Murphy, VP of Product Management, Big Data / Cloud at WANdisco as they discuss the current and future trends in on-prem/cloud data optimization and how WANdisco's LiveData approach to cloud migration represents the future of HDFS data lake cloud management.


The webinar will detail how WANdisco and AWS customer GoDaddy was able to use LiveData Migrator to move 500TB of data to the cloud in less than 6 weeks with zero data loss or business interruption.


The panel discussion will focus on:

· Key drivers of large-scale data migrations

· Migration issues and how WANdisco has solved these problems for always-on enterprises

· GoDaddy's platform modernization to AWS

· The "other guys'" approaches to migration

· The future of cloud data migration


The event follows the launch of LiveData Migrator, an automated, self-service solution in partnership with Amazon Web Services (AWS) on 17 September 2020. LiveData Migrator enables cloud data migration at any scale by allowing companies of all sizes to easily start migrating Hadoop data from on-premises to AWS within minutes, without the expertise of engineers or other consultants, and even whilst source data sets are under active use.


GoDaddy has utilized LiveData Migrator to migrate 500 TB of HDFS data to Amazon Simple Storage Service (Amazon S3). The Company will operate in a hybrid cloud mode and continue to update Amazon S3 data as changes are made to Hadoop content in the source, so it is immediately available for cloud analytics. The first 70 TB of data was migrated within days with zero on-premise system downtime.


Paul Scott-Murphy, VP of Product Management, Big Data / Cloud at WANdisco said: 


"Launching LiveData Migrator on AWS in September was a momentous step in WANdisco's journey, providing an unrivalled on-ramp to the world's largest public cloud. This panel discussion is an opportunity to hear about how our technology works in practice, successfully transferring GoDaddy's 500 TB live data set within days without down time. A feat previously deemed impossible within our industry and made reality through our unique technology and close collaboration with AWS."
