WANdisco the leading provider of continuous-availability software for global enterprises to meet the challenges of Big Data, today announced that a leading 24-by-7 provider of financial data, breaking news and expert analysis on business sectors critical to the global economy, will use WANdisco Fusion™ to deliver continuous availability and performance for its predictive customer analytics applications built on the Hortonworks Data Platform (HDP), the Hadoop big data software platform provided by Hortonworks, Inc. (NASDAQ: HDP). These applications enable the firm to make real-time decisions regarding the most relevant information services to offer subscribers, based on their profile and past behavior.
Many financial services firms find Hadoop to be the platform of choice for consolidating subscriber data and mapping it to portfolios of financial information services offerings. Other critical requirements for financial service firms are real-time simultaneous ingest and sharing of data across two locations with continuous availability, to meet the round-the-clock needs of customers. WANdisco Fusion, with its patented active-active replication technology for Hadoop is the only viable solution that meet’s these requirements.
Implementing predictive customer analytics applications on Hadoop is a big step forward in improving the ability to offer the timeliest and and most relevant financial information services to its subscribers. The other challenges faced by this firm revolved around 24/7 availability and automated disaster recovery. Every other solution they evaluated only partially met these requirements, with downtime during upgrades. Something no financial services firm can afford. With WANdisco Fusion, these issues go away and they didn’t have to compromise.
In addition to WANdiso Fusion’s continuous availability and performance, its flexible architecture eliminates vendor lock-in and supports staggered upgrades of Hadoop across locations without any interruption in operation. WANdisco Fusion can be implemented across different versions of the same platform, as well as mixed storage environments, including Oracle BDA, Cloudera, Hortonworks (NASDAQ: HDP), and MapR.
“Real-time financial news and information is mission critical for financial service providers and the organizations and people they serve. The highest availability and performance requirements for big data are paramount for success,” said David Richards, CEO and Co-founder of WANdisco. “Our customer wanted an adaptable, future-proof solution to avoid proprietary lock-in. I’m very pleased to make further traction into this space and offer them precisely what they need with WANdisco Fusion.”
