Contract win


Leading online gaming provider Playtika selects WANdisco's Amazon cloud solution


WANdisco (LSE: WAND), a leading provider of enterprise-ready, non-stop cloud software solutions, is pleased to announce it has secured an important contract win for its Amazon S3 Cloud solution, available in Amazon's AWS Marketplace, with global online gaming company Playtika.


Playtika selected WANdisco Fusion after an extensive tender process in which it was found to be the only solution that could transfer the large volumes of continuously changing data generated by Playtika, to the cloud without impacting the gaming experience of Playtika's six million daily players across 190 countries.  Playtika's games consistently rank among the top grossing games on Apple's App Store, Google Play and Facebook.


With the deployment of WANdisco Fusion's patented technology, Playtika's Amazon S3 and on-premise environments operate in parallel to ensure seamless disaster recovery in the event of an unplanned outage.


The deal is based on Terabytes of data being replicated by WANdisco Fusion on a subscription basis.


The award of this contract is directly in-line with the Company's focus of deploying its market leading WANdisco Fusion cloud solution via a number of sales channel partnerships, including Amazon, Cisco, IBM, Google, Hewlett Packard, Microsoft and Oracle.


Previously, the Company announced a $1.5 million contract with a US financial services institution with over $200 billion in assets secured through WANdisco's partnership with Oracle and a $775,000 agreement with a major global bank headquartered in Europe for WANdisco's Subversion Multisite Plus ALM (Application Lifecycle Management) software.


David Richards, Chief Executive Officer and Interim Chairman of WANdisco, commented:


"This is an important contract win for WANdisco as it not only demonstrates our ability to reap real benefit through our channel partnerships, but Playtika's selection of WANdisco Fusion further demonstrates that the capabilities we offer companies considering cloud migration and hybrid cloud deployments are truly unique.


"Playtika found that no other solution could move active, continuously changing data to the cloud without downtime and disruption and keep both their on-premise and cloud environments in sync. This further validates our vision that the Company's ability to manage unprecedented volumes of active data in the cloud is firmly at the heart of our growth strategy."
