WANdisco Announces Partnership with Bridgeworks For Faster Cloud Migration

WANdisco (LSE: WAND) - the leading provider of software that enables global enterprises to meet today’s data challenges of secure storage, scalability and availability - today announced a new partnership with WAN acceleration vendor Bridgeworks, recognized as a Gartner Cool Vendor in Enterprise Networking for 2016.

Bridgeworks PORTrockIT software will now be available for WANdisco Fusion’s patented active-transactional replication technology, that was built to move transactional data to the cloud, at Petabyte scale, without downtime or data loss. PORTrockIT’s patented technology supports businesses that rely on fast movement of large volumes of data and increases performance by up to 100 times faster. This addition of speed delivers enterprise data resilience and security for critical applications such as backup, replication, disaster recovery and cloud migration.

"This new partnership brings together two best-of-breed solutions to unlock the full potential of the cloud,” said David Richards, WANdisco CEO and Co-Founder. “WANdisco’s continuous availability and guaranteed data consistency can now be deployed with software from Bridgeworks that virtually removes the effects of network latency, making it possible for on-premises and cloud environments to operate as one.”

The combined Bridgeworks and WANdisco technology will ensure that large volumes of live production data can move to and from the cloud without any business disruption. This further supports hybrid cloud requirements for on-demand, burst-out processing, and offsite disaster recovery, without downtime or data loss. The combined solution eliminates the need for cloud vendor storage appliances to be sent back and forth from customer data centers in a process that involves days of downtime and is only suitable for one-time movement of cold, less critical data.

“Enterprises are increasingly reliant on the need to move large volumes of data to where it needs to be at speed. They also need to have full trust and confidence that their infra-structure is able to deliver the performance that is critical to their business,” said David Trossell, CEO of Bridgeworks.

“WANdisco software is already known for its performance and it has revolutionized the global enterprise requirement to migrate large amounts of transactional data to the Cloud. When combined with Bridgeworks PORTrockIT technology, the resulting increase of up to 100 times in transfer speed has raised the bar for business. The combination of WANdisco and Bridgeworks will ensure a flexible and scalable solution for the increasing number of Enterprises looking to the Cloud as a viable option for running business-critical applications that rely on speed of data migration.”
