WANdisco Announces Issuance of Patent for Distributed Computing Systems Covering Active-Active Data Replication Over a WAN

SAN RAMON, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 01/29/13 -- WANdisco (LSE: WAND), a provider of high-availability software for global enterprises to meet the challenges of Big Data and distributed software development, announced that U.S. Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) patent number 8,364,633 will issue today, January 29, 2013.

The patent, entitled "Distributed computing systems and system components thereof," claims the fundamentals of active-active replication over a Wide Area Network ("WAN"). 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, and will be incorporated into the company's upcoming Big Data products. Wikibon forecasts the Big Data market to grow at a CAGR of 58% between now and 2017 or from $5 billion to over $50 billion.

"This patent, combined with our recent AltoStor acquisition, highlights WANdisco's unique ability to meet the non-stop availability, scalability and performance needs of enterprises," said David Richards, CEO of WANdisco. "Our patented active-active replication technology is an outstanding differentiator in the software development market, something no other company can achieve over the Wide Area Network. We're excited to port this patented technology to Big Data and have already received very positive feedback. I'm proud of the innovative team we have at WANdisco and look forward to exciting days ahead."

The underlying patent application was allowed by the USPTO in November 2012, after a thorough substantive examination. In accordance with standard Patent Office procedures, following the timely payment of the Issue Fee, the application was assigned US patent number 8,364,633 and scheduled for issuance and publication on January 29, 2013. This patent will be enforceable for a period of 20 years from filing, plus 912 days (an adjustment period attributed to a delay incurred by the USPTO and added to the patent enforceability term). Therefore, the patent will be enforceable until July 11, 2028.
