WANdisco unveils non-stop Hadoop for Hortonworks 1.5 with added performance and management Features

 At Strata London, WANdisco (LSE: WAND), a leading provider of high-availability software for global enterprises to meet the challenges of Big Data and distributed software development, announced Non-Stop Hadoop for Hortonworks version 1.5. The new release includes significant performance and administration enhancements for large multi-data center Hadoop deployments.

This version of WANdisco Non-Stop Hadoop, designed for Hortonworks Data Platform (HDP) 2.0, provides the ability to schedule maintenance, imports of large data sets, and other activities by time zone. This allows global enterprises to plan for server downtime and maintain performance across data centers that span multiple geographies.

Non-Stop Hadoop for Hortonworks 1.5 adds support for existing Ambari installations. Apache Ambari is the operational framework for provisioning, managing and monitoring Hadoop clusters. Ambari, which is 100 percent open source, includes an intuitive collection of operator tools and a robust set of APIs that hide the complexity of Hadoop, simplifying the operation of clusters.

“Non-Stop Hadoop for Hortonworks gives global enterprises the ability to add or remove servers on-the-fly without interrupting user access. This new release also delivers follow-the-sun capabilities that optimize availability and performance by enabling customers to schedule maintenance and other activities by time zone,” said David Richards, WANdisco CEO and Chairman. “WANdisco is continually adding features to ensure continuous availability with scalability and performance. This release of WANdisco Non-Stop Hadoop for Hortonworks expands on these capabilities by making it easier to manage large global deployments across multiple data centers.”
