WANdisco LiveData Migrator, launched a week ago, spurred an agreement between WANdisco and Infosys. Together, the two companies will help businesses migrate data to the cloud, the vendor announced Thursday.

Infosys, a global digital services and consulting company, will combine its Data Wizard solution to augment WANdisco’s LiveData Migrator. Combined, the companies will help organizations migrate their data lakes to major public clouds including AWS, Microsoft Azure and Google.

“Data lake migration is a complex problem to solve, particularly when business downtime is not an option,” said David Richards, CEO at WANdisco. “Only our patented technology has a proven capability to ensure zero downtime and zero risk. We are excited to be partnering with Infosys to expand our market reach and leverage its vast experience and cloud capabilities, and help customers accelerate their journey to the cloud.”

LiveData Migrator is an automated and self-service cloud migration solution that migrates Hadoop HDFS data to the cloud. It can be used even while source data sets are being used.  Infosys Data Wizard can augment the WANdisco LiveData migrator by providing rich graphical user interface-driven migration life cycle management.

Digital Transformation

The Data Wizard helps with inventory collection, analysis, migration planning, migration validation and data certification. This automates the end-to-end data migration life cycle, according to the company. It also facilitates the movement of petabytes of data to the cloud.  Moreover, artificial intelligence and machine learning analyze data to generate deeper business insights at a lower cost compared to on-premises.

“Enterprises are recognizing that to truly achieve digital transformation, they need to leverage the economics and capabilities of the cloud,” said Satish H.C., executive vice president, data and analytics at Infosys. “However, enterprises that have historically invested in on-premises data lakes have run into challenges with manual or batch migration of business critical data to the cloud. With Infosys Cobalt, our clients are embracing hybrid cloud solutions to accelerate their digital transformation journeys and our partnership with WANdisco will help them automate migration of data volumes at scale while ensuring continued business performance.”

Infosys Cobalt is a set of services, solutions and platforms for enterprises to accelerate their cloud journies. It offers 14,000 cloud assets and more than 200 industry cloud solutions.
