It added that WANdisco’s LiveData Migrator, the first new native Microsoft Azure service, will ensure the seamless migration of data lakes to ADLS (Azure Data Lake Storage) and take advantage of cloud economics and machine learning-powered cloud analytics with services like Azure Databricks.

Infosys will leverage LiveData Migrator to help enterprises transition on-premise data lakes to the cloud and ensure continued business performance.

WANdisco's chief executive and chairman, David Richards, said: “The business remains focused on deepening and strengthening our partner relationships and we are delighted to have signed this global agreement with Infosys.

"Data lake migration is a complex problem to solve, particularly when business downtime is not an option.

"This deal shows that only our patented technology has a proven capability to ensure zero downtime and zero risk. Our partnership with Infosys will expand our market reach as we leverage its vast experience and cloud capabilities, whilst helping customers accelerate their journey to the cloud.”
