First time users of WANdisco's LiveData Platform for Azure should start with LiveData Migrator.
LiveData Plane for Azure is a core Azure service that keeps unstructured data available and consistent across diverse environments regardless of geographic location, architecture, on-premises and cloud environments. LiveData Plane for Azure leverages WANdisco’s patented Distributed Coordination Engine to utilize consensus to ensure consistency of actively changing data across any combination of Hadoop distributions and Azure cloud storage.
LiveData Plane for Azure is deeply integrated with native Azure resources such as Azure Portal, CLI, Role Based Access Control, Active Directory, Azure Policy enforcement and Activity log integration. This tight integration provides customers with a turnkey user experience similar to other native Azure services. Further integration with Azure Billing means customers are billed directly through Azure, so there is no need to add a new vendor contract or require additional vendor approvals. And the first 25 terabytes are free!
“Customers have a significant opportunity to optimize costs and expand analytics and insights capabilities by moving their on-premise data lakes to the cloud. WANdisco LiveData Migrator and LiveData Plane are the first offerings to provide a fully integrated and turnkey experience for customers migrating Hadoop data into Azure Data Lake Storage seamlessly and without business disruption.”
