WANdisco Launches Edge To Cloud Solution For IoT Data 


WANdisco announced Edge to Cloud, the IoT data activation solution for exabytes of edge data to be efficiently transferred for use in any cloud environment.

The solution directly connects IoT data storage with cloud-based AI, machine learning, and analytics applications, allowing every sensor-generated data point to add business value and be monetised.

Edge to Cloud scales to handle the largest IoT datasets in the world. A multinational manufacturing company serving the transportation industry is using the solution to activate exabytes of vehicle sensor data. Edge to Cloud moves multiple petabytes of data per day, over an exabyte of data per year.

Key differentiators of WANdisco Edge to Cloud include:

  • Automation: Automate the movement of IoT and file data at scale across edge systems, data centres, and public clouds.
  • Scalability: Scale horizontally to handle any data size, and take full advantage of network bandwidth.
  • Flexibility: Freedom of choice to move data to any public cloud, take advantage of multiple clouds, and avoid vendor lock-in.

“Making sense of all your IoT data is the business opportunity of a generation. It’s what will turn companies in sectors like manufacturing, telecommunications, energy and utilities, healthcare and automotive into data companies. But with sensors in nearly everything, 78% of data executives claim that data growth is outpacing analysis. It gets trapped at the edge, and trapped data means trapped revenue. Edge to Cloud is fast-tracking that data, at scale, to exactly where it needs to be to make an impact,” said David Richards, Co-founder and CEO, WANdisco.

Edge to Cloud is built on WANdisco’s Data Activation Platform that enables the continuous migration of data across edge systems, on-premises data centres, and public cloud environments with unmatched speed and scale and zero business disruption risk.
