WANdisco Launches Non-Stop Hadoop Alliance Partner Program to Accelerate 
Adoption and Scale-Out of Enterprise Big Data 
Hyve Solutions and SUSE Join Non-Stop Alliance 
SAN RAMON, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 02/26/13 --  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 the launch of its Non-Stop Alliance Partner Program
to provide Industry, Technology and Strategic Partners with the
competitive advantage required to compete and win in the
multi-billion dollar Big Data market. WANdisco's Non-Stop technology
and reference architectures can provide the first and only open
source Apache Hadoop solution that delivers 100 percent uptime.
Founding Partners participating in the Non-Stop Alliance Partner
Program include Hyve Solutions and SUSE. 
"The number one Hadoop adoption challenge for both enterprises and
vendors is Hadoop's inability to support non-stop availability," said
David Richards, CEO of WANdisco. "Scalable, enterprise-ready Big Data
deployments require 100 percent uptime, and current Hadoop solutions
lack the ability to offer continuous availability. The Alliance
Partner Program has been launched to work with leading developers,
nology vendors, and integrators to develop, certify and test
Non-Stop Hadoop reference architectures to promote deployment and
accelerate business." 
WANdisco's patented Non-Stop replication technology is the foundation
for Alliance Partners to lead the Big Data market, which is expected
to exceed $47 billion by 2017 according to Wikibon (Feb. 20, 2013).
The Non-Stop Alliance is focused on accelerating Partner
time-to-revenue through the development and certification of Non-Stop
Hadoop reference architectures.  
WANdisco offers three Partner options -- Industry, Technology and
Strategic -- to help Partners accelerate their Hadoop business and
increase Big Data market share and sales, providing technology,
resources, expertise and support in the building and support of
global Apache Hadoop deployments.  

--  For Industry Partners, which include consultants, system integrators
    and VARs, the program provides access to customers who are ready to
    deploy and the competitive advantage necessary to grow business
    through referral and resale tracks.
--  For Technology and Strategic Partners, including software and hardware
    vendors, the program accelerates time-to-market through Non-Stop
    certification and reference-integrated solutions.
--  For Strategic Partners, the program offers access to WANdisco's
    non-stop technology for integrated Hadoop solutions (OEM and MSP)

"Hyve Solutions is excited to be a founding member of WANdisco's
Non-Stop Alliance Partner Program," said Steve Ichinaga, Senior Vice
President and General Manager of Hyve Solutions, a division of SYNNEX
Corporation (NYSE: SNX) and a provider of purpose-built datacenter
servers and storage. "The integration of WANdisco and SUSE's
technology with Hyve Solutions storage and server platforms gives
enterprise companies an ideal way to deploy Big Data environments
with non-stop uptime quickly and effectively into their datacenters." 
"Linux is the undisputed operating system of choice for high
performance computing. For two decades, SUSE has provided reliable,
interoperable Linux and cloud infrastructure solutions to help top
global organizations achieve maximum performance and scalability,"
said Michael Miller, vice president of global alliances and
marketing, SUSE. "We're delighted to be a Non-Stop Strategic
Technology Founding Partner to deliver highly available Hadoop
solutions to organizations looking to solve business challenges with
emerging data technologies."
