Hortonworks Certified MDS ISV/IHV Partner
WANdisco is a MDS ISV/IHV Partner in the Partnerworks Program.

The vision of Hadoop is the information manager’s dream: a data lake, as big as you need it, with seamless access to all of your data. WANdisco Fusion™ is the only Hadoop-compatible file system that provides active-active access to data across clusters, distributions, and file systems.

How do you build an effective, fast, and secure data engine out of several Hadoop clusters? How do you get the most business value out of your Hadoop deployment while delivering a reliable and high-performing Big Data service?

With WANdisco Fusion on the Hortonworks Data Platform (HDP), an enterprise can now build an effective, fast and secure data engine out of multiple Hadoop clusters, getting the most business value out of its HDP deployment with a reliable and high-performing Big Data service.

Unlike other solutions, WANdisco Fusion on Hortonworks provides total data protection, drastically reducing Recovery Point Objective (RPO) and Recovery Time Objective (RTO). With WAN-read High Availability/Disaster Recovery (HA/DR) and central control of data location, WANdisco Fusion is the only solution that supports Hadoop replication across multiple clusters, reducing network security risk and management.
