WANdisco Edge to Cloud GA
May 5, 2022
Edge to Cloud, the IoT data activation solution, launches to make it possible
for exabytes of edge data to be efficiently transferred for use in any cloud
environment. The first-of-its-kind 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 monetized.
The volume of connected devices worldwide is projected to reach 24.6 billion by
2025, with each device generating a non-stop flow of data to its nearest edge
data center. Moving this data to the cloud is the only way for companies with
thousands of edge centers to analyze sensor data collectively—a long and tedious
process that can take multiple years and cost millions of dollars.
“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,” said David
Richards, co-founder and CEO of WANdisco. “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.”
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. To put this
into perspective: all the words ever spoken by mankind are estimated to be equal
to five exabytes.
differentiators of WANdisco Edge to Cloud include:
Automation: Automate the movement of IoT and file data at scale across edge
systems, data centers, 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.
Edge to Cloud is built on WANdisco’s Data Activation Platform that enables the
continuous migration of data across edge systems, on-premises data centers, and
public cloud environments with unmatched speed and scale, and with zero business
disruption or risk.
