We workwith the world’s top companies

Our idea how our vision became a reality

Our CEO David Richards and Chief Scientist Dr. Aahlad co-founded WANdisco in 2005. They grew the company without raising any private equity, venture capital or angel funding and led it to a highly successful IPO on the London Stock Exchange on June 1st 2012. Our IPO raised over $24 million and was oversubscribed by more than 300%. The list of investors included Fidelity, Legal & General, BlackRock, Artemis, Hargreave Hale, Cazenove, M&G, Octopus and Standard Life.

Patented technology created by the best and the brightest

Our Chief Scientist Dr. Aahlad is a recognized world-wide authority on distributed computing. Dr. Aahlad’s vision and years of persistence led to the invention of a patented technology many said was impossible.

We think differently and made the impossible possible

In the 1990s Sun Microsystems identified eight fallacies about distributed computing. These were a set of false assumptions made by programmers new to distributed applications which would result in a failure or reduction of the system or in large, unplanned expenses to redesign the system to meet its original goals.

Our patented technology means these assumptions are now true. Computer science still says this is impossible.

  • The network is reliable
  • Latency is zero
  • Bandwidth is infinite
  • The network is secure
  • Topology doesn’t change
  • There is one administrator
  • Transport cost is zero
  • The network is homogeneous
