WANdisco Fusion® integrates with AWS Snowball to deliver a truly hybrid cloud solution

San Ramon, Calif., – 28 November 2017 – WANdisco (LSE:WAND), a world leader in Active Data Replication®, today announced its patented technology, WANdisco Fusion®, is integrated with AWS Snowball. With WANdisco Fusion® Amazon Web Services (AWS) customers can use the bulk transfer capabilities of AWS Snowball to transfer static and changing information from Big Data applications to Amazon Simple Storage Service (Amazon S3) with guaranteed data consistency. This avoids the downtime and cost usually involved in bulk data transfer over the network. Other benefits of WANdisco Fusion® for AWS Snowball include:

Efficiency: AWS customers can take advantage of efficient bulk data transfer with AWS Snowball to minimize network costs, transfer times and security concerns for data transfer over the network. 

No downtime and no business disruption: Cloud and on-premises applications continue to operate normally and without disruption against the Amazon S3 API while AWS Snowball is in transit. 

Guaranteed data consistency: Using WANdisco Fusion for AWS Snowball allows applications to use the Amazon S3 API to write data to a local Amazon S3 endpoint while transferring data with guaranteed consistency to Amazon S3 in the cloud using a combination of AWS Snowball devices and network connectivity.


David Richards, Co-Founder and CEO of WANdisco said: 


“By using WANdisco Fusion® for AWS Snowball, customers can get large quantities of data to the cloud at not only a significantly faster rate and for less money than if they were transferring data over the network, but also with the unique benefits of consistent, coordinated replication. This enables a truly hybrid cloud to be created with no downtime and no business disruption.”
