WANdisco teams with Cloudera to accelerate adoption of Apache Hadoop-based Business solutions
WANdisco Joins Cloudera Connect Partner Program
WANdisco (LSE: WAND), a provider of high-availability software for global enterprises to meet the challenges of Big Data and distributed software development, today announced it is an authorized member of the Cloudera Connect Partner Program. The program focuses on accelerating the innovative use of Apache Hadoop for a range of business applications. WANdisco Big Data solutions support Cloudera’s open-source Apache Hadoop distribution, CDH.
WANdisco’s patented active-active replication technology turns globally distributed servers into mirrors of each other so they always remain in-sync, providing continuous hot-backup and automatic failover across every site for non-stop data recovery. By applying this technology to Big Data with products being announced this quarter, WANdisco allows enterprises to put truly effective business continuity strategies into place by having globally distributed data synchronized in real-time.
“We are pleased to welcome WANdisco into the Cloudera Connect network of valued service and solution providers for Apache Hadoop and look forward to working together to bring the power of Big Data to more enterprises,” said Tim Stevens, VP of Business and Corporate Development at Cloudera. “As a trusted partner, we will equip WANdisco with the tools and resources necessary to support, manage and innovate with Apache Hadoop-based solutions.”
WANdisco’s technology removes the single point of failure inherent in Hadoop and works over both Wide Area Networks (WANs) spanning multiple servers thousands of miles apart, as well as over Local Area Networks (LANs). This provides enterprises with non-stop availability and addresses planned outages by allowing administrators to take servers offline for maintenance without interrupting user access.
In addition to supporting CDH, as a member of Cloudera Connect, WANdisco adds Cloudera’s extensive tools, use case insight and resources to its already broad and deep expertise of Hadoop committers. This enables the company to provide customers with rich deployment, support and management of Apache Hadoop so they can quickly begin benefiting from their clusters and data as well as disaster recovery and business continuity strategies.
“Our partnership with Cloudera provides organizations with the ability to utilize Cloudera’s CDH while taking advantage of WANdisco’s active-active replication technology for high availability global deployments,” said David Richards, WANdisco CEO. “We look forward to working with Cloudera to deliver non-stop Big Data solutions to enterprises.”
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.
