WANdisco announces major customer traction for New Big Data product in Q2

WANdisco Fusion™ for Hadoop sees significant traction with Oracle and other partners

WANdisco (LSE: WAND), a leading provider of continuous-availability software for global enterprises to meet the challenges of Big Data, today announced it had signed a record number of large global organizations as customers for its new Fusion product during the second quarter. All of these new customers are expected to significantly expand their deployments during the coming months. The company attributes this rapid adoption to Fusion’s flexible, easy-to-deploy architecture that provides active-active replication across mixed storage environments including Oracle BDA (NYSE: ORCL), Cloudera, Hortonworks (NASDAQ: HDP), EMC (NYSE: EMC) and MapR.

The simplicity and interoperability of WANdisco Fusion has enabled new key partnerships with companies including Oracle, Teradata (NASDAQ: TDC) and Hortonworks and has helped accelerate this rapid growth.

New customers included some of the world’s largest financial service companies, retail, telecommunications and government organizations. The deals also covered wide geographies in Americas, Asia Pacific region and Europe demonstrating the global reach and sales organization of WANdisco.

"I am delighted with our performance in Q2,” said David Richards, CEO and Co-Founder of WANdisco. “Partners such as Oracle now view Fusion as essential for their customers looking for enterprise-grade performance and resilience across their data centers, without the usual complexity. We are now working closely on go-to-market activities with selected partners such as Oracle and Hortonworks, as well as the major storage appliance vendors.”

“Global organizations have stringent availability, scalability and performance requirements for their big data deployments. They also want big data solutions that are a snap to install, manage and monitor,” said Peter Scott, SVP of Business Development at WANdisco. “We are now seeing a number of joint customer wins from the combination of WANdisco Fusion’s patented active-active replication technology with Oracle’s preconfigured Big Data Appliance [BDA] running Cloudera, as these large enterprises look to deploy resilient big data systems with no vendor lock-in and super-fast time to value.”

Fusion’s simplicity also made it possible for WANdisco to offer a free 14-day evaluation download.
