WANdisco does cloudy dance

WANdisco has joined forces with Bridgeworks to speed replicated data on its way to the cloud.

WANdisco, whose technology replicates data, has joined forces with Bridgeworks to speed replicated data on its way to the cloud.

Bridgeworks PORTrockIT software will now be available for WANdisco Fusion’s replication technology, to move transactional data to the cloud, at petabyte scale, with no downtime or data loss. PORTrockIT can increase overall transmission speed up to 100x by parallelising streams within the transmitted data. WANdisco says PORTrockIT virtually removes the effects of network latency, making it possible for on-premises and cloud environments to operate as one. The combined offering means that large volumes of live production data can move to/from the cloud with no business disruption.
