WANdisco announces seamless integration with Cloudera Manager and Ambari

Installs Across Multiple Data Centers in Under Ten Minutes

At Strata + Hadoop World BarcelonaAt Strata + Hadoop World Barcelona, WANdisco (LSE:WAND) a leading provider of continuous availability software for global enterprises to meet the challenges of Big Data, today announced that its Non-Stop Hadoop products for Cloudera and Hortonworks now offer seamless integration with Cloudera Manager, Cloudera's administration console and the Apache Ambari management console, used by Hortonworks. WANdisco also announced it has greatly simplified the installation process. Now its Non-Stop Hadoop solution can be deployed across multiple data centers any distance apart in less than ten minutes. Once installed, WANdisco enables Cloudera and Hortonworks to deliver:

  1. Continuous Hadoop availability, performance and scalability across data centers any distance apart.
  2. Local network speed read/write access to the same data across all locations, subject to the customer's selective replication policies.
  3. The ability to ingest and analyze data anywhere.
  4. 100% use of all compute resources so money isn't wasted on idle backup hardware.
  5. Cluster zoning which isolates the most resource intensive applications to the high-end servers best suited to support them, without requiring high-spec, high-cost servers throughout the cluster.

"We are committed to eliminating complexity and delivering a transparent, seamless experience to our customers using either Cloudera or Hortonworks. WANdisco's customers can use the Hadoop management consoles and other tools they're familiar with, rather than learning something entirely new," said David Richards, CEO and Co-Founder of WANdisco. "We have also simplified the deployment process so our software can be installed across any number of data centers any distance apart in under ten minutes." Mr. Richards will deliver a keynote presentation at the Barcelona Strata conference entitled 'Mission Critical Big Data' on November 20th at 10:50 am at The Barcelona International Convention Center, Room 211-212.
