WANdisco announces significant new contribution to Apache Hadoop open source project
New HDFS TRUNCATE Feature Sponsored by WANdisco Delivers Major Enhancement to Hadoop Big Data Transaction Handling
WANdisco (LSE: WAND), a leading provider of continuous-availability software for global enterprises to meet the challenges of Big Data, announced today that it had contributed code to the Apache Hadoop open source project that enables changes to the Hadoop Distributed File System (HDFS) to be undone automatically when a transaction is aborted. This new feature, referred to as TRUNCATE, is a standard capability of transactional systems. Previously, if a user mistakenly appended data to an existing file stored in HDFS, their only recourse was to recreate the file by rewriting the contents. In addition, software engineers developing Hadoop Big Data applications were forced to write code to work around this limitation.
WANdisco is the world leader in Active Data Replication™. Its patented WANdisco Fusion technology enables the replication of continuously changing data to the cloud and on-premises data centers with guaranteed consistency, no downtime and no business disruption. It also allows distributed development teams to collaborate as if they are all working in one location. WANdisco has an OEM with IBM as well as partnerships with Amazon Web Services, Cisco, Google Cloud, Hewlett Packard Enterprise, Microsoft Azure, and Oracle to resell its patented technology. WANdisco also works directly with Fortune 1000 companies around the world to ensure their data can give them the real insight they need.
