WANdisco and Zaloni Partner to accelerate adoption of continuously available Hadoop cluster deployments

WANdisco (LSE: WAND) and Zaloni announced a strategic partnership that enables enterprises to accelerate the adoption of Apache Hadoop for their mission-critical applications.

Through this partnership, the companies will provide customers with a seamless approach to end-to-end enterprise Hadoop deployments. Together, the two organizations will provide customers with a full-lifecycle approach to Hadoop deployment, including use case discovery, development, integration, delivery and ongoing maintenance 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. As an active-active solution, when one server fails, or is offline for maintenance, other servers in the cluster continue supporting clients without interrupting access.

Zaloni builds agile Big Data solutions augmented with rich and interactive data visualization. Zaloni’s Bedrock Data Management Platform provides a unique foundation for Hadoop end-to-end design, build and deployment solutions that enhance data management, improve infrastructure efficiency, add significant business value, and deliver rapid ROI with every enterprise deployment.

"We offer solutions that deliver 100% uptime for Hadoop, and our clients want to know that in addition to these products, they will be getting an effective implementation plan and support," said David Richards, CEO of WANdisco. "The partnership with Zaloni will provide exactly that."

"Our partnership with WANdisco brings together two proven solutions, providing enterprise customers the knowledge, expertise and tools required for building and deploying Hadoop production applications," said Ben Sharma, CEO of Zaloni. "Together, WANdisco and Zaloni will help our customers achieve continuous availability of their Hadoop clusters."

Both companies will be at Hadoop Summit next week in San Jose.
