The Cloudera Connect Partner Program from Cloudera, a company specializing in Hadoop and big data, focuses on accelerating the innovative use of Apache Hadoop for a range of business applications. The program is gaining wider support from companies focusing on big data applications.
The latest to join the Cloudera Connect Partner Program is WANdisco, a company that helps global enterprises meet the challenges of big data and distributed software development.
As an authorized member of the Cloudera Connect Partner Program, the company can work together to address the challenges associated with managing big data. WANdisco big data solutions support Cloudera's open-source Apache Hadoop distribution, CDH.
In addition to these, WANdisco now adds Cloudera's extensive tools, use case insight and resources to its already broad and deep expertise of Hadoop committers, enhancing the deployment, support and management capabilities of Apache Hadoop.
"We are pleased to welcome WANdisco into the Cloudera Connect network of valued service and solution providers for Apache Hadoop and look forward to working together to bring the power of Big Data to more enterprises," said Tim Stevens, VP of Business and Corporate Development at Cloudera, in a statement. "As a trusted partner, we will equip WANdisco with the tools and resources necessary to support, manage and innovate with Apache Hadoop-based solutions.”
WANdisco's patented active-active replication technology has the ability to turn globally distributed servers into mirrors of each other so they always remain in-sync, offering continuous hot-backup and automatic failover across every site for non-stop data recovery.
The advantage of this technology is that it can remove the single point of failure inherent in Hadoop. It works over both Wide Area Networks (WANs) spanning multiple servers thousands of miles apart, as well as over Local Area Networks (LANs).
"Our partnership with Cloudera provides organizations with the ability to utilize Cloudera's CDH while taking advantage of WANdisco's active-active replication technology for high availability global deployments," said David Richards, WANdisco CEO. "We look forward to working with Cloudera to deliver non-stop big data solutions to enterprises."
