Active-active multi-data center transaction support brought to Hadoop

Esgyn Corporation said it has released EsgynDB 2.0, a Big Data database on Apache Hadoop®, to enable enterprises to run operational applications concurrent with real-time analytics.

Built on Apache Trafodion, EsgynDB is the first SQL database to enable enterprises to move mission-critical operational workloads to Hadoop with rock solid ACID protection of their operational data. Enterprises require protection across data centers to scale beyond a cluster and ensure full disaster recovery. EsgynDB updates this data synchronously across data centers to guarantee that you never lose a single transaction.

EsgynDB has been certified on Cloudera CDH and is in the process of being certified on the latest version of Hortonworks HDP, and also supports Apache Hadoop. It has been adopted by customers worldwide, including Webroot®, provider of intelligent cybersecurity for endpoints and collective threat intelligence, and Chinese online music service Kuwo. Esgyn has also been in strategic collaboration with global human resources, benefits and business process outsourcing provider ADP®.

ADP has been actively involved in the design and development of the new solution. ADP, which houses a very large database of over 630,000 clients and 35 million employees globally, is working with Esgyn to develop advanced features and capabilities for EsgynDB 2.0.

This collaboration is part of ADP´s ongoing commitment to developing and employing state-of-the-art Big Data technologies in new solutions serving employers of all sizes. “Leveraging these capabilities in new applications will enable ADP to help our clients increase efficiencies in managing their HR processes and other workforce functions,” said Haifeng Li, Chief Data Scientist at ADP.
