WANdisco Awarded U.S. Patent for Core Active-Active Data

WANdisco Awarded U.S. Patent for Core Active-Active Data Replication
11/07/12 --  WANdisco (LSE: WAND), a leading provider of global
collaboration software to the software development industry,
announces that, after a thorough examination process, the United
States Patent & Trademark Office (USPTO) has allowed the Company's
U.S. Patent Application, which will protect the Company's core
replication technology. The patent application was allowed on
November 6, 2012. 
The allowed patent application, entitled "Distributed computing
systems and system components thereof" covers fundamentals of
active-active replication over a Wide Area Network ("WAN"). The
patent states that "unlike conventional solutions, the multi-site
computing system architecture does not rely on a central transaction
coordinator that is known to be a single-point-of-failure." The
patented technology is incorporated in WANdisco's product range,
including Subversion MultiSite, which is used by leading companies
such as HP, Intel, Barclays, McAfee, Honda and Wal-Mart for globally
distributed software development. 
The directors believe that this technology can be deployed in many
other technology verticals including the Big Data market, which
according to Wikibon is forecast to grow at a CAGR of 58% between now
and 2017 or from $5 billion to over $50 billion. 
Commenting on the patent, David Richards, WANdisco Chairman and Chief
Executive Officer, said: 
"I am delighted the USPTO has allowed WANdisco's patent, which we
believe to be a breakthrough in the field of data replication. This
patent validates our leadership in distributed computing and our
belief that no other company can achieve active-active replication
over a Wide Area Network. We believe this patent is far reaching and
will change storage area networks and their application. Presently,
we have integrated this technology into our version control systems
for software engineers and have plans, as previously stated, to apply
the technology in the Big Data market - today's patent decision
re-confirms our belief, as the leader in this field."
