wandisco-logoWANdisco (LSE: WAND), a leading provider of high-availability software for global enterprises to meet the challenges of Big Data, announced the release of WANdisco Fusion 2.6 with new features only available to customers who purchase WANdisco Fusion Enterprise Edition for Hadoop ®.

WANdisco Fusion 2.6 introduces:

  • Network traffic shaping capabilities, giving administrators greater control over the amount of bandwidth used for replication by each data center
  • The power to prioritize network traffic on the basis of source and target data centers
  • The ability to assign higher priority to specific files and directories during replication between data centers

These new WAN management capabilities combine with WANdisco Fusion’s patented active-active replication technology, which delivers always-on availability, performance and scalability across Hadoop clusters any distance apart, enabling the most stringent SLAs to be met. At the same time, they eliminate the need for expensive “bump-in-the-wire” network optimization hardware and software that can add hundreds of thousands of dollars of cost with significant complexity. These cost savings will be on top of the major hardware cost savings WANdisco Fusion brings to Hadoop deployments.

With WANdisco Fusion’s active-active architecture, all servers and clusters are fully readable and writeable, always in sync and recover automatically from each other after planned or unplanned downtime. There are no passive read-only backup servers and clusters that are only utilized when the primary active cluster goes offline. As a result, WANdisco Fusion customers get 100% use of their hardware, without wasting a significant amount of their hardware budget on idle backup servers.

WANdisco Fusion’s features are critical for enterprises looking to scale-up large Hadoop deployments,” said David Richards, WANdisco CEO and Co-Founder. “Customers tell us they are seeing significant ROI, with savings in hardware costs alone on the order of 50%. And while ease-of-use generally isn’t the first thing that comes to mind when one thinks about big data, WANdisco Fusion simplifies the Hadoop experience in a way that is truly unique in this space.”
