New YARN-based Architecture Combined with WANdisco’s Non-Stop Technology takes Hadoop to the Next Level with Multi-Data Center Support

 WANdisco (LSE: WAND), a provider of high-availability software for global enterprises to meet the challenges of Big Data and distributed software development, announced its Non-Stop Hadoop supports the generally available Hortonworks Data Platform (HDP) 2.0. With its new YARN-based architecture, HDP 2.0 is the most flexible, complete and integrated Apache Hadoop distribution to date.

By combining WANdisco’s non-stop technology with HDP 2.0,WANdisco’s Non-Stop Hadoop for Hortonworks addresses critical enterprise requirements for global data availability so customers can better leverage Apache Hadoop. The solution delivers 100% uptime for large enterprises using HDP across multiple data centers.  Failover and recovery are automatic both within and across data centers. Whether a single server or an entire site goes down, HDP is always available.

“With a YARN-based architecture that serves as the operating system for Hadoop, HDP 2.0 takes Hadoop beyond single-use, batch processing to a fully functional, performance-tested, multi-use platform that enables batch, interactive, online and stream processing,” said Shaun Connolly, vice president of corporate strategy, Hortonworks. “WANdisco Non-Stop Hadoop for Hortonworks brings guaranteed access and global disaster recovery for a truly integrated Big Data solution.”

“Hortonworks and WANdisco share the vision of delivering an enterprise-ready data platform for our mutual customers,” said David Richards, Chairman and CEO, WANdisco. “Non-Stop Hadoop for Hortonworks combines the YARN-based architecture of HDP 2.0 with WANdisco’s patented Non-Stop technology to deliver a solution that enables global enterprises to deploy Hadoop across multiple data centers with continuous availability.”
