Challenge

Envestnet | Yodlee, was using Cloudera’s CDH 4.4 for its Big Data environment. The environment handled over 2,000 jobs daily with over 1,000 customizations. They wanted to upgrade to CDH 5.7 but found an in-house upgrade was too risky due to the level of customizations and the risk of downtime. Envestnet | Yodlee evaluated several leading market solutions for an external upgrade service.

Solution

Envestnet | Yodlee found WANdisco LiveData Platform was the only solution that would enable an upgrade with no downtime and no business disruption. WANdisco’s patented technology ensured Envestnet | Yodlee’s existing CDH 4.4 environment stayed fully operational during the upgrade to CDH 5.7 enabling the validation of all existing customizations so thorough testing could be done prior to their going live.

“We deal with over 80 million financial transactions a day with over 20 million active users. Our customers expect their data to be accurate and always available. WANdisco was the only solution that made this possible when we upgraded to a new version of our Cloudera production system. WANdisco LiveData Platform works flawlessly on Cloudera. It was a very stress-free process.”
