WANdisco Joins Fusion-io Technology Alliance Program
WANdisco (LSE: WAND), a provider of high-availability software for global enterprises to meet the challenges of Big Data and distributed software, announced that it has become a member of the Fusion-io Technology Alliance Program (TAP). The program focuses on working with leaders in strategic market segments to deliver proven solutions, access to resources, and expertise to enhance the value of technology offerings.
“The Fusion-io Technology Alliance Program enables us to work with innovative companies to provide powerful solutions that maximize ROI for customers by integrating Fusion-io reliability and performance to the unique value added by our TAP members,” said Tyler Smith, Fusion-io vice president of alliances. “With rapid growth in big data demands around the world, customers require proven solutions and expertise that deliver Hadoop availability with no downtime or data loss. WANdisco is a valuable addition to our Technology Alliance Program as we work together to fulfill the market demand for innovative and proven big data solutions.”
By applying WANdisco’s patented active-active replication technology to Hadoop, enterprises can put truly effective business continuity strategies in place by having globally distributed data synchronized in real-time. WANdisco’s technology is the only solution to provide 100 percent uptime with unbeatable performance and scalability by providing multiple active NameNodes in a single cluster, and it 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. Adding proven Fusion-io performance to the WANdisco architecture provides an ideal solution for rapidly extracting actionable information from Hadoop while ensuring utmost reliability across big data architectures.
“The complexity of big data makes it compelling to aggregate the expertise of leaders in innovation, underscoring the value of partnership programs like the Fusion-io Technology Alliance Program in developing ideal solutions for enterprise customers,” said Mark Schreiber, vice president of business development for WANdisco. “WANdisco addresses the crucial non-stop availability and performance issues related to Hadoop to ensure enterprises can quickly begin to benefit from their big data. The combination of WANdisco and Fusion-io is compelling for any enterprise deploying Hadoop.”
