IBM and WANdisco team up on relational database tech

IBM Db2 Big SQL will provide a SQL solution on hybrid deployments for the first time

IBM and WANdisco have developed relational database technology to extend IBM Big Replicate (WANdisco Fusion) for customers requiring a hybrid cloud environment solution.

Although WANdisco has previously supported Hadoop to offer a SQL solution on private clouds, this is the first time the company has been in a position to also support relational databases for hybrid set-ups.

IBM Db2 Big SQL, which has been jointly developed with WANdisco, takes IBM Big Replicate one step further, offering a SQL engine for Hadoop, with the added bonus of HDFS, RDBMS, NoSQL databases, object stores and WebHDFS source support.

"This co-engineered SQL solution with IBM is an exciting breakthrough for WANdisco as this is the first time that our technology has been applied to SQL data," David Richards, chief executive officer and chairman of WANdisco said.

"This launch also represents a significant advancement of our relationship with a key partner and the scope of our addressable market in IBM's channel. WANdisco's unique technology presents great opportunity to collaborate with partners to address novel data requirements that previously have not been possible to meet."

Benefits of IBM Db2 Big SQL include low latency, high security, SQL compatibility, and Enterprise Data Warehouse (EDW) and federation capabilities, giving data scientists and others with the responsibilities for processing data the tools to access data and scale their business, however many users need to access the information at once.

"Our close relationship with IBM was built upon further in 2018 with an increased royalty percentage and substantial client contracts," Richards added. "We look forward to growing opportunities with IBM in the year ahead, leveraging our new co-engineered product to address as yet untapped data requirements."
