Cloudera and WANdisco partner to make hadoop continuously available

Cloudera Certifies WANdisco’s Non-Stop Hadoop Technology to Run on Cloudera’s Hadoop Distribution (CDH)

 Cloudera, the leader in enterprise analytic data management powered by Apache Hadoop®, and WANdisco, the leading provider of continuous availability software for global enterprises to meet the challenges of Big Data, announced that WANdisco’s Non-Stop Hadoop technology is certified to run on Cloudera’s Distribution for Hadoop version 4 (CDH4) providing 100% uptime for global multi-data center deployments. With this partnership, Cloudera and WANdisco are addressing critical enterprise requirements for continuous availability, performance and scalability as large global organizations move from using Hadoop for batch storage and retrieval to mission critical high volume real-time applications, where the cost of even one minute of downtime is unacceptable.

Merv Adrian, vice president at leading analyst firm Gartner, Inc. wrote, “As Hadoop will be increasingly used for operational purposes, critical real-time applications will require continuous availability for successful deployment in large global organizations”.(1)

“CDH is the core of Cloudera’s enterprise platform,” said Tim Stevens, vice president, Business and Corporate Development, Cloudera. “CDH together with WANdisco’s Non-Stop Hadoop technology enables us to deliver our full suite of real-time data analytics and data management applications with active-active availability for those customers who need it.”

“Hadoop is the platform for the next generation of enterprise applications,” said David Richards, Chairman and CEO, WANdisco. “Working with Cloudera is a natural fit given their significant footprint in the enterprise.  We believe that continuous data availability is a ‘must-have’ for organizations looking to leverage Hadoop for strategic enterprise systems and WANdisco’s Non-Stop Hadoop Technology is the only solution that delivers it.”

WANdisco’s Non-Stop Hadoop solution was also recently certified for use with Cloudera Manager (CM). Now clusters deployed using Non-Stop Hadoop for Cloudera can be monitored and managed in real-time across multiple data centers from a single administration console. This provides a seamless user experience and eliminates the learning curve for Cloudera customers who want to integrate WANdisco’s Non-Stop Hadoop solution with their existing deployments. (2)

Attendees will learn how to achieve continuous availability, with maximum performance and optimum scalability for global multi-data center Hadoop deployments. Register here.
