WANdisco and Data Tactics partner to provide comprehensive continuous availability Hadoop cluster deployments

WANdisco (LSE: WAND) and Data Tactics announced a strategic partnership that enables enterprises to speed the deployment of Apache Hadoop for their mission-critical applications.

Through this partnership, WANdisco and Data Tactics will provide enterprises with a seamless approach to full-cycle enterprise Hadoop deployments. Together, the companies will provide customers with a comprehensive approach to Hadoop deployment, including business use case investigation, development, integration, delivery and ongoing services and support.

WANdisco provides Continuous Availability to data processed and stored in Hadoop. WANdisco Non-Stop NameNode eliminates the single point of failure inherent in Hadoop – the NameNode, delivering optimum performance, scalability and availability on a 24/7 basis with zero downtime and zero data loss. With active-active replication, when one server fails, or is offline for maintenance, other servers in the cluster continue supporting clients without interrupting access.

The Data Tactics team is focused on solving big data problems and is comprised of industry-recognized experts in the field of Enterprise Architecture, Cloud Computing, Cyber Security, Engineering, System/Software Development, Data/Systems Integration, and Operations & Maintenance (O&M). DT has been building petascale enterprise systems leveraging Hadoop since 2008. Its teams routinely receive commendations for the innovative approaches and practical solutions they design.

"Our clients need expert and effective implementation planning and support for our 100% uptime Hadoop solutions," said David Richards, CEO of WANdisco. "Data Tactics has the insight, experience, and knowledge to deliver that."

"When enterprises leverage Data Tactics’ Big Data Engine with WANdisco’s Hadoop Continuous Availability solutions, customers immediately recognize the lowest total cost of ownership (TCO) possible. Customers can now utilize an analytic platform in support of business analytics so they can act on data in real-time" said Dr. David Bauer, CTO Commercial Data Tactics Corporation.
