- Distributed computing software company WANdisco said it had launched a new joint-engineered solution with IBM to support relational database technology.

The so-called IBM Db2 Big SQL solution was created to extend the capability of IBM Big Replicate -- IBM's product name for WANdisco Fusion -- to support scenarios where customers were looking to take advantage of hybrid cloud.

'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,' chief executive id Richards 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.'
