WANdisco 100% Hadoop Uptime Solution Certified by Dell

SAN RAMON, CA--(Marketwired - Aug 14, 2013) - WANdisco (LSE: WAND), a provider of high-availability software for global enterprises to meet the challenges of Big Data and distributed software development, announced it has completed integration and interoperability certification of its Apache Hadoop Non-Stop NameNode technology with Dell PowerEdge servers. As a result, customers can now deploy Apache Hadoop in mission-critical environments where processing and access to data requires continuous availability, as opposed to relying on active-passive solutions.

Apache Hadoop has gained popularity and is quickly becoming the standard of choice for storing, processing and analyzing tremendous amounts of structured and unstructured data. Non-Stop NameNode software, based on WANdisco's patented distributed coordination engine (DConE), provides 100% uptime for Apache Hadoop by eliminating its inherent single point of failure.

"As enterprise organizations migrate Apache Hadoop from pilot projects to business critical environments, the requirement to meet business SLAs is critical to success," said David Richards, WANdisco CEO. "WANdisco's Non-Stop NameNode is the only solution available for Apache Hadoop that provides 100% availability to data stored in HDFS during both planned and unplanned namenode outages."

Dell hardware and WANdisco software are certified to work together, delivering maximum performance with minimum risk. This certified stack is highly optimized for massively distributed data storage, data processing and business analytics.

Apache Hadoop Non-Stop NameNode technology was certified through Dell's Technology Partner Program, a program that helps Independent Software Vendors (ISVs), Independent Hardware Vendors (IHVs), and Solution Providers build innovative solutions using Dell platforms.
