WANdisco Announces Open Source Availability of Hadoop S3-Enabled HDFS
San Jose (Hadoop Summit, Booth 50), CA – June 26, 2013 - WANdisco (LSE: WAND), a provider of high-availability software for global enterprises to meet the challenges of Big Data and distributed software development and a major sponsor of the Apache Software Foundation, announced that it will open source its S3-enabled HDFS option for Hadoop, which provides enterprises with a complete and seamless migration solution from Amazon's public cloud to a secure private cloud.
With S3-enabled HDFS available for Apache Hadoop, all Amazon S3 features are available in a private cloud, including searchable metadata tagging of images, video and other unstructured data, snapshots, and data object versioning. By implementing WANdisco’s Non-Stop NameNode solutions with WDD 3.6, private cloud deployments with these S3 features are available 24/7, with unmatched scalability and performance.
"WANdisco is a proud Apache Software Foundation sponsor and contributor to the Hadoop open source community and releasing our S3-enabled HDFS technology to developers is a major step forward in enabling migration from Amazon S3 to secure private clouds," said David Richards, WANdisco CEO.
Key features of WANdisco Hadoop S3-enabled HDFS include:
- Simplified migration from Amazon public cloud to a secure private cloud with all the same S3 features is purely a data migration effort – no software development is required.
- Popular third-party applications that use Amazon's S3 API (Amanda backup, SmugMug, Senduit, JungleDisk, and more) will run unmodified in a private cloud.
- S3-enabled HDFS combined with WANdisco's Non-Stop NameNode provides 100% uptime, performance and scalability in a private-cloud supporting S3 behind the firewall.
Currently bundled with WANdisco Distro (WDD), 100% open source, commercially supported, fully tested, production-ready version of Apache Hadoop 2, WANdisco Hadoop S3-enabled HDFS will be submitted to the Apache Software Foundation at the end of the summer.
