WANdisco announced it has joined the Hortonworks Technology Partner Program to offer its Big Data products on the Hortonworks Data Platform (HDP) powered by Apache Hadoop.
The Hortonworks Data Platform (HDP) delivers a 100-percent open source, enterprise-class distribution of Apache Hadoop that is endorsed and adopted by some of the largest vendors in the IT ecosystem.
WANdisco's active-active replication technology turns globally distributed servers into complete replicas of each other so they are always in-sync, designed to provide 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 business continuity strategies into place by having globally distributed data synchronized in real-time.
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 enterprise administrators the ability to take servers offline for maintenance without interrupting user access.
"WANdisco is bringing active-active replication technology to enterprises for high-availability global Hadoop deployments," said David Richards, WANdisco CEO. "Hortonworks Data Platform customers will greatly benefit from WANdisco non-stop Big Data solutions through this partnership."
