Qubole and WANdisco Move Enterprises to the Cloud With Cloudera Migration ProgramNew Partnership With WANdisco Reduces Cost and Complexity, and Eliminates Downtime During Cloud Migration
MOUNTAIN VIEW, CA–(Marketwired – Jul 11, 2016) – #Qubole, the big data-as-a-service company, today announced the launch of its #Cloudera Migration Program to assist enterprises in expanding their use of big data by leveraging the advantages of the cloud. As part of the program, Qubole has partnered with #WANdisco (LSE: WAND), the market leader in active transactional data replication, to create a seamless process for customers migrating data and analytics to the cloud with no downtime or business disruption. “The big data industry is shifting from on-premise to cloud as the preferred deployment model, but many early Cloudera customers are stuck with a system that wasn’t designed for the cloud,” said Ashish Thusoo, co-founder and CEO of Qubole. “Together with WANdisco, Qubole now offers the first fully packaged migration service which enables companies to experience the full benefits of big data analytics in the cloud.” As enterprises struggle with the expense and operational complexity of expanding on-premise systems, the adaptability, agility and cost advantages of cloud are compelling. Qubole customers have seen savings up to 80% for workloads using spot instances and have admins supporting hundreds of users. The Cloudera Migration Program is designed for companies that deployed Cloudera Express, Cloudera Enterprise or CDH on-premise and now want a quick and easy way to leverage the massive economies of scale offered by cloud.
