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

SHEFFIELD, UNITED KINGDOM and SAN RAMON, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 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."

When talking IoT we often focus on the devices, the sensors, the hardware itself. The new smart appliances, the new smart or self-driving cars (which are amalgamations of many ‘things'). When we are looking at the world of IoT, we should take a step back, look at the big picture. What value are these devices providing. IoT is not about the devices, its about the data consumed and generated. The devices are tools, mechanisms, conduits. This paper discusses the considerations when dealing with the...
Machine learning has taken residence at our cities' cores and now we can finally have "smart cities."
