WANdisco, a provider of high-availability software for global enterprises to meet the challenges of Big Data and distributed software development, announced it has filed a new patent application with the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) related to distributed computing with Hadoop for its Big Data solutions. WANdisco's patent application represents a significant addition to the company’s portfolio of distributed computing technology.
The patent application involves WANdisco’s active-active replication applied to the Hadoop Distributed File System (HDFS) over a Wide Area Network ("WAN”).
