At a time when India is going through a deep digital transformation, riding on a mobile-first population, global public software company WANdisco is all set to expand its operations and increase the headcount in the country.
WANdisco, which has dual headquarters in Sheffield, England and San Ramon, California in the US, has seen its products being used by the world’s leading companies — from automotive to banking and retail to manufacturing — to build Hybrid Cloud and multi-Cloud solutions.
“Our Cloud technology was originally built by our dedicated team here in Chennai. We are about to announce several new products in the multi-Cloud/poly-Cloud space and those were also developed by our team in India,” David Richards, Chairman, President, CEO and Co-founder, WANdisco, told IANS.
“Because of this recent success, we now have the green light to rapidly expand the team here. I can see this growing by 5-10 times current numbers in that period,” added Richards.
WANdisco recently secured a deal with China-based Alibaba which is growing its Cloud presence in India.
“In general, there are four leaders in Cloud Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IAAS) — Amazon, Microsoft, Google and Alibaba. Because of this, the deal with Alibaba has strategic significance,” said Richards.
“The technology was developed here in India and we are already seeing significant traction with Alibaba in Asia including in the Indian market” he informed.
WANdisco has become a critical component of cloud computing.
In an era where every company is in the data business, success depends on putting exabytes of ‘LiveData’ to work for the business and WANdisco is the leader in ‘LiveData’.
Founded in 2005, WANdisco has key collaborations with IBM, Alibaba, Amazon Web Services (AWS) and Microsoft Azure.
“We already have a number of deployments of our technology here in India and certainly, as more and more companies run their businesses in the cloud then they will be WANdisco customers,” said Richards.
