WANdisco Raises USD17 Million, Reaches Top Tier Status With Amazon (ALLISS)

LONDON (Alliance News) - WANdisco PLC said Thursday it has received advanced technology partner status with Amazon Web Services' partner network. The company also announced it has raised USD17.5 million through the subscription of 2.5 million shares.

"Our new accreditation with AWS represents a major advancement in our relationship. We recently launched LiveData for MultiCloud and won our first contract. We worked directly with AWS on that subscription contract where Fusion was deployed to enable continuous replication of data across multiple Amazon cloud environments and locations. This new status strengthens our relationship and significantly expands our sales channel opportunities," said Chief Executive David Richards.
