WANdisco’s March Roundup

Following the recent issuance of our “Distributed computing systems and system components thereof” patent, which cover the fundamentals of active-active replication over a Wide Area Network, we’re excited to announce the filing of three more patents. These patents involve methods, devices and systems that enhance security, reliability, flexibility and efficiency in the field of distributed computing and will have significant benefits for users of our 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, WANdisco Hadoop Console and WANdisco Distro (WDD.)

This month, we also welcomed Bas Nijjer, who built CollabNet UK from startup to multimillion dollar recurring revenue, to the WANdisco team. Bas Nijjer has a proven track record of increasing customer wins, accelerating revenue and providing customer satisfaction, and he takes on the role of WANdisco Sales Director, EMEA.

“Bas is an excellent addition to our team, with great insight on developing and strengthening sales teams and customer relationships as well as enterprise software,” said David Richards. “His expertise and familiarity with EMEA and his results-oriented attitude will help strengthen the WANdisco team and increase sales and renewals. We are pleased to have him join us.”

We’ve also posted lots of new content at the WANdisco blog. Users of SmartSVN, our cross-platform graphical Subversion client, can find out how to get even more out of their installation with our ‘Performing a Reverse Merge in SmartSVN’ and ‘Backing Up Your SmartSVN Data’ tutorials. For users running the latest and greatest, 7.5.4 release of SmartSVN, we’ve put together a deep dive into the fixes and new functionality in this release with our ‘What’s New in SmartSVN 7.5.4?’ post. If you haven’t tried SmartSVN yet, you can claim your free trial of this release by visiting http://smartsvn.com/download

We also have a new post from James Creasy, WANdisco’s Senior Director of Product Management, where he takes a closer look at the “WAN” in “WANdisco:”

“We’ve all heard about the globalization of the world economy. Every globally relevant company is now highly dependent on highly available software, and that software needs to be equally global. However, most systems that these companies rely on were architected with a single machine in mind. These machines were accessed over a LAN (local area network) by mostly co-located teams.

All that changed, starting in the 1990’s with widespread adoption of outsourcing. The WAN computing revolution had begun in earnest.”

You can read “What’s in a name, WANdisco?” in full now.

Also at the blog we address the hot topic of ‘Is Subversion Ready for the Enterprise?’ And, if you need more information on the challenges and available solutions for deploying Subversion in an enterprise environment, be sure to sign up for our free-to-attend ‘Scaling Subversion for the Enterprise’ sessions. Taking place a few times a week, these webinars cover limitations and risks related to globally distributed SVN deployments, as well as free resources and live demos to help you overcome them. Take advantage of the opportunity to get answers to your business-specific questions and live demos of enterprise-class SVN products.

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.

 

WANdisco’s February Roundup

This month, we launched a trio of innovative Hadoop products: the world’s first production-ready distro; a wizard-driven management dashboard; and the first and only 100% uptime solution for Apache Hadoop.

We started this string of Big Data announcements with WANdisco Distro (WDD) a fully tested, free-to-download 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.

This release paved the way for our enterprise Hadoop solutions, and we announced the WANdisco Hadoop Console (WHC) shortly after. WHC is a plug-and-play solution that makes it easy for enterprises to deploy, monitor and manage their Hadoop implementations, without the need for expert HBase or HDFS knowledge.

The final product in this month’s Big Data announcements was WANdisco Non-Stop NameNode. Our patented technology makes WANdisco Non-Stop Namenode the first and only 100% uptime solution for Hadoop, and offers a string of benefits for enterprise users:

  • Automatic failover and recovery
  • Automatic continuous hot backup
  • Removes single point of failure
  • Eliminates downtime and data loss
  • Every NameNode server is active and supports simultaneous read and write requests
  • Full support for HBase

To support the needs of the Apache Hadoop community, we’ve also launched a dedicated Hadoop forum. At this forum, users can get advice on their Hadoop installation and connect with fellow users, including WANdisco’s core Apache Hadoop developers Dr. Konstantin V. Shvachko, Dr. Konstantin Boudnik, and Jagane Sundar.

We’ve announced an ongoing series of free webinars, which demonstrate how you can overcome these challenges from an administrative, business and IT perspective, and get the most out of deploying Subversion in an enterprise environment. These ‘Scaling Subversion for the Enterprise’ webinars will be conducted by our expert Solution Architect three times a week (Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday) at 10.00am PST/1.00pm EST, and will cover:

  • The latest technology that can help you overcome the limitations and risks associated with globally distributed deployments
  • Answers to your business-specific questions
  • How to solve critical issues
