Reliable real-time transaction processing now a reality for Big Data as WANdisco launches non-stop HBase

At Strata Santa Clara, WANdisco (LSE: WAND), a leading provider of high-availability software for global enterprises to meet the challenges of Big Data and distributed software development, announced its unique, patented active-active replication technology has now been applied to HBase, making it continuously available across multiple data centers any distance apart. HBase is an open source, non-relational, distributed database modeled after Google's BigTable and used for random, real-time read/write access to Big Data, including Facebook’s messaging platform. This capability has been added for both the Hortonworks and Cloudera distributions.

WANdisco’s patented replication technology has been applied to the two availability and performance bottlenecks in HBase’s architecture – its Region and Master Servers – eliminating the risk of downtime and data loss. This builds on the solid foundation already in place with the application of WANdisco’s Non-Stop technology to Hadoop’s NameNode, upon which HBase availability also depends.

“HBase is used for real-time interactive applications built on Hadoop,” said David Richards, Chairman and CEO of WANdisco. “Many of these Big Data applications are mission critical and even the cost of one minute of downtime is unacceptable. One hundred percent uptime for HBase is now a reality with our Non-Stop HBase technology. For the first time we’ve eliminated the risk of downtime and data loss by enabling HBase to be continuously available on a global scale.”

Learn More at the Strata Educational Session

Hear from Jagane Sundar, WANdisco CTO and VP Engineering, Big Data, about Non-Stop HBase during his Strata educational session Thursday, February 13th at 2:20 pm in Ballroom F. In this presentation, the two main areas of HBase availability concerns - the Region Server and the HBase Master - will be analyzed. The use of a Paxos-based coordination system to provide multiple active Region Servers per Region and the role of the HBase Master and a robust system for providing multiple active HBase Masters will be highlighted.

See it in Action during Live Demo
