WANdisco Teams With Cloudera to Accelerate Adoption of Apache Hadoop-Based Business Solutions

(Marketwire Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) SAN RAMON, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 01/21/13 -- WANdisco (LSE: WAND), a provider of high-availability software for global enterprises to meet the challenges of Big Data and distributed software development, today announced it is an authorized member of the Cloudera Connect Partner Program. The program focuses on accelerating the innovative use of Apache Hadoop for a range of business applications. WANdisco Big Data solutions support Cloudera's open-source Apache Hadoop distribution, CDH.

WANdisco's patented active-active replication technology turns globally distributed servers into mirrors of each other so they always remain in-sync, providing continuous hot-backup and automatic failover across every site for non-stop data recovery. By applying this technology to Big Data with products being announced this quarter, WANdisco allows enterprises to put truly effective business continuity strategies into place by having globally distributed data synchronized in real-time.

"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. "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 technology removes the single point of failure inherent in Hadoop and works over both Wide Area Networks (WANs) spanning multiple servers thousands of miles apart, as well as over Local Area Networks (LANs). This provides enterprises with non-stop availability and addresses planned outages by allowing administrators to take servers offline for maintenance without interrupting user access.

In addition to supporting CDH, as a member of Cloudera Connect, WANdisco adds Cloudera's extensive tools, use case insight and resources to its already broad and deep expertise of Hadoop committers. This enables the company to provide customers with rich deployment, support and management of Apache Hadoop so they can quickly begin benefiting from their clusters and data as well as disaster recovery and business continuity strategies.

"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." About WANdiscoWANdisco (LSE: WAND) is a provider of enterprise-ready, high-availability software solutions that enable globally distributed organizations to meet today's data challenges of secure storage, scalability and availability.

The topics cover WebRTC reliability, interoperability, and security--looking at how Oracle addresses these issues.

Oracle in Enterprise Communications

Most in the industry have heard of the acquisition of Acme Packet by Oracle. What you may not know is that Oracle has a number of telecommunications products including a UC suite, WebRTC Session Controller, and Operations monitoring tools. Oracle is pursuing both the enterprise and service provider.

ConnectCare & Unified Contact Manager

SPAN's ConnectCare is a WebRTC-based telemedicine app, which allows consumers to easily and instantly avail clinical healthcare from the providers, regardless of their location. This app is extremely useful to healthcare providers, patients and their caregivers alike.

WebRTC Security Concerns

This whitepaper covers two of the most relevant topics in communications industry today: WebRTC and security. We will introduce the problem of security in WebRTC including those traditional VoIP attacks that are going to be present in WebRTC services. Later we will mention ad-hoc WebRTC attacks and protection mechanisms, to close with an overview of identity management solutions.

Migrating Real Time Communications Services to the Web

In the Internet age, businesses that own fixed and mobile communication networks, including traditional Communications Service Providers (CSPs) of all kinds, are being challenged with some tough questions: How do we stay relevant to our customers?

Delivering Enterprise-Class Communications with WebRTC

WebRTC is an emerging industry standard for enabling Web browsers with real-time communications capabilities. It enables enterprises to enhance Web sites, empower BYOD users, and improve video collaboration and on-line meetings, to name but a few examples.

WebRTC Report Extract Reprint

This document examines the growing important of WebRTC, both generally and for telecom service providers. It considers the expanding range of use-cases, the multiple layers of interoperability likely to be desired by telcos, and some implications in terms of network integration and mobility.

Robust Enterprise Grade WebRTC Systems and Services


The emerging WebRTC standard has become one of the industry's hottest topics – and with good reason. Being able to "communications enable the web" has Communications Service Providers as well as Enterprises busily making plans for deployment. But, as these plans unfold, reality is starting to intrude on those plans. Our expectations of telephony services are much higher than web browsing. We expect the phone to connect instantly, operate with minimal disruption, and work seamless across any network, anywhere, at any time. There is also an understanding that phone service is inherently secure. With WebRTC, the expectation is for these applications to behave in the same manner.

This session looks at the user experience and expectations of a WebRTC Enterprise service. It will also cover how a WebRTC enterprise handles security, reliability, and interoperability within browsers and networks.

ORACLE COMMUNICATIONS WEBRTC SESSION CONTROLLER

The Oracle Communications WebRTC Session Controller enables communications service providers (CSPs) and enterprises to offer WebRTC services – from virtually any device, across virtually any network – with carrier-grade reliability and security.

ORACLE COMMUNICATIONS WEBRTC SESSION CONTROLLER SOLUTION

Communication Service Provider (CSP) voice service revenues continue to face pressure due to shifts in communication preferences and competition from non-traditional service providers. Voice communications are now often embedded into applications outside the domain of traditional telephony voice usage. CSPs have been challenged to effectively leverage and monetize new web-oriented communications technologies.
