SANTA CLARA, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 02/26/13 -- O'Reilly Strata
Conference -- RainStor, provider of a database for Big Data that
consistently delivers 90 percent cost savings, announced today that
RainStor's Big Data Analytics on Hadoop product has been validated
with the Intel(R) Distribution for Apache Hadoop software. The
solution provides faster, more flexible analytics using Standard SQL,
BI Tools and MapReduce without the need to move data out of the
Hadoop is becoming increasingly attractive as a platform for
large-scale, lower cost data management and analysis. As your data
volumes grow at a rapid pace, you need to add storage and compute and
so operationally, costs will continue to rise even if running on
lower cost commodity hardware, which ultimately impacts your TCO.
Using RainStor's innovative database with the Intel Distribution for
Apache Hadoop software, customers can drastically reduce the TCO by
significantly reducing storage and at the same time improve the query
and analytics performance using standard SQL access and MapReduce,
Pig, Hive and more, giving you the most flexible enterprise analytics
Key features of the RainStor Big Data Analytics on Hadoop solution
-- Extreme Data Load: Handling billions of records per day. As the data
is being loaded at network speed, it is automatically compressed.
-- Highest Data Compression on the Market: 20-40X yielding 95+ percent
reduction in the data footprint.
-- Speed of Query & Analysis: Rapidly search and analyze data using
native SQL, as well as MapReduce for seamless integration with
existing systems and tools, which enables you to perform analysis on
Hadoop without the need to move data out to a data warehouse.
-- Predictable Scale: RainStor's ability to reduce the storage and nodes
across the Hadoop cluster gives customers significant cost savings and
ease of scale to meet future requirements.
Applicable use-cases and solutions include:

-- Online Data Archive: Customers can move historical data into RainStor
from any data warehouse, freeing up the data warehouse to perform
analysis against the most current data, while continuously providing
on-demand access to the historical set in RainStor.
