SAN RAMON, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 01/30/13 -- WANdisco (LSE: WAND), a provider of high-availability software for global enterprises to meet the challenges of Big Data and distributed software development, 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 patented active-active replication technology turns globally distributed servers into complete replicas of each other so they are always 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 Hortonworks Technology Partner Program," said Mitch Ferguson, vice president of business development, Hortonworks. "We look forward to working with WANdisco to deliver innovative Apache Hadoop-based solutions for the enterprise."
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.
"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."
