IBM goes to WANdisco
IBM is OEM’ing WANdisco’s Fusion data replication product.
It will be sold as a standard IBM-branded component of IBM storage and analytics products, covering Hadoop or non-Hadoop, and on-premise or cloud environments. IBM will have access to the Fusion Software Development Kit enabling IBM self-sufficiency in extending the use of Fusion. This agreement represents a substantial increase in WANdisco’s addressable market and a significant extension of its channel strategy. WANdisco will receive a royalty on the Fusion component of IBM sales, which is expected to flow during the second half of 2016.
