Use case:

Hadoop to Hadoop

Challenge

As it set out to build its first data lake, HM Health Solutions aimed to protect the platform from disaster 24/7. How could the company ensure that its cutting-edge Hadoop cluster offered 24/7 availability?

Solution

HM Health Solutions deployed the WANdisco Fusion platform to continuously replicate large, fast-changing HDFS and Apache Hive data sets between its primary data lake and a disaster recovery environment.

"By configuring WANdisco Fusion for bi-directional replication, HM Health Solutions' DR environment could be used for production workloads, effectively doubling its compute capacity without compromising on its DR capabilities."
