WANdisco Files Three New Patents with USPTO

We are pleased to announce the filing of three new patents with the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) related to distributed computing.

These three innovations involve methods, devices and systems that enhance security, reliability, flexibility and efficiency in the field of distributed computing. The patents are expected to have significant benefits for users of our new Hadoop Big Data product line.

Our team continues to break new ground in the field of distributed computing technology,” said David Richards, CEO for WANdisco. “We are proud to have some of the world’s most talented engineers in this field working for us and look forward to the eventual approval of these most recent patent applications. We are particularly excited about their application in our new Big Data product line.”

Our Big Data product line includes Non-Stop NameNode, which turns the NameNode into an active-active shared-nothing cluster, and the comprehensive wizard-driven management dashboard ‘WANdisco Hadoop Console.’ We also offer a free-to-download, fully-tested and production-ready version of Apache Hadoop 2. Visit the WANdisco Distro (WDD) to learn more.

This news comes after we announced the issuance of our “Distributed computing systems and system components thereof” patent, which covers the fundamentals of active-active replication over a Wide Area Network.

 

Scaling Subversion for the Enterprise

Apache Subversion is one of the world’s most popular open source version control solutions. It’s also becoming increasingly popular within the enterprise, with plenty to offer enterprise users, including:

  • Established professional support options
  • A commercial-friendly Apache license
  • Atomic commits that allow enterprise users to track and audit changes
  • Plenty of free training resources, such as webinars, refcards and online tutorials

However, large Subversion deployments have limitations that can negatively affect your business. If you are using multiple Subversion repositories across globally distributed teams, you’re likely facing challenges around performance and productivity, repository sync, WAN latency and connectivity, access control or the need for HADR (high availability and disaster recovery).

In our new, free-to-attend ‘Office Hours’ sessions, our expert Solution Architect will conduct live demos, showcasing how our Subversion MultiSite technology can help you overcome the limitations and risks related to globally distributed SVN deployments. Over the course of the hour, our Solution Architect Patrick Burma will cover these issues and accompanying solutions, from the administrative, business and IT perspectives, and will be available to answer all of your business-specific questions.

You can register for all of this week’s sessions now:

All sessions will take place at 10:00am PST (1:00pm EST) and are free to attend.
