New Webinar Replay: The Future of Big Data for the Enterprise

You may have heard that we’ve just launched the world’s first production-ready Apache Hadoop 2 distro. This WANdisco Distro (WDD) is a fully tested, production-ready version of Apache Hadoop, based on the most recent Hadoop release. We’re particularly excited, as the release of WDD lays the foundation for our upcoming enterprise Hadoop solutions. If you want to find out more about WANdisco’s plans for big data, the replay of our ‘The Future of Big Data for the Enterprise’ webinar is now available.

This webinar is led by WANdisco’s Chief Architect of Big Data, Dr. Konstantin Shvachko, and Jagane Sundar, our Chief Technology Officer and Vice President of Engineering for Big Data. Jagane and Konstantin were part of the original Apache Hadoop team, and have unparalleled expertise in Big Data.

This 30 minute webinar replay covers:

  • The cross-industry growth of Hadoop in the enterprise.
  • The new “Active-Active Architecture” for Apache Hadoop that improves performance.
  • Solving the fundamental issues of Hadoop: usability, high availability, HDFS’s single-point of failure and disaster recovery.
  • How WANdisco’s active-active replication technology will alleviate these issues by adding high-availability, data replication and data security to Hadoop, taking a fundamentally different approach to Big Data.

You can watch the full ‘The Future of Big Data for the Enterprise’ replay, along with our other webinars, at our Webinar Replays page.

We’re excited to announce the launch of our WANdisco Distro (WDD) a fully tested, production-ready version of Apache Hadoop 2. WDD is based on the most recent Hadoop release, includes all the latest fixes and undergoes the same rigorous quality assurance process as our enterprise software solutions.

The team behind WDD is led by Dr. Konstantin Boudnik, who is one of the original Hadoop developers, has been an Apache Hadoop committer since 2009 and served as a Hadoop architect with Yahoo! This dedicated team of Apache Hadoop development, QA and support professionals is focused exclusively on delivering the highest quality version of the software.

We are also now offering enterprise-class professional support for organizations deploying Hadoop clusters that utilize WDD. Delivered by our team of open source experts, WANdisco’s professional support for Hadoop includes online service request and case tracking, customer discussion forums, online access to service packs and patches, indemnification coverage, Hadoop cluster health checks, consulting and training and more. You can find out more about the available support options at www.wandisco.com/support/hadoop

We’re particularly excited to make this announcement, as WDD lays the foundation for our enterprise Hadoop solutions that deliver 24-by-7 availability, scalability and performance globally, without any downtime or data loss.

“This is one of a number of key Big Data product announcements WANdisco will be making between now and the upcoming Strata 2013 Big Data conference in Santa Clara, CA, February 26-28. It’s a great time for enterprises requiring a hardened, non-stop Hadoop,” said David Richards, CEO of WANdisco. “Only our patented active-active technology removes the single point of failure inherent in Hadoop and works locally and globally. We are excited to have Dr. Konstantin Boudnik, one of the original developers of Hadoop, leading this rollout.”
