Altiscale, Inc. Key Developments

Altiscale, Inc. Introduces the Altiscale Insight Cloud Real-Time Edition

Altiscale, Inc. introduced the Altiscale Insight Cloud Real-Time Edition, a fully managed Big Data solution for real-time analytics. This solution helps enterprises gain immediate intelligence into and react rapidly to high-volume data streams. The Real-Time Edition broadens the Altiscale Insight Cloud self-service analytics solution by unifying real-time, interactive, and batch analytics into a single integrated package. With the proliferation of data-generating sensors and devices, real-time analytics has taken on greater significance and is used in numerous applications, including marketing recommendations, fraud detection, cybersecurity threat detection, and IT operational intelligence. In these and other instances, the Altiscale Insight Cloud Real-Time Edition powers dashboards, notifications, and pattern matching on real-time data. Enterprises gain visibility into key metrics, early warning of anomalous behavior, and opportunities to take action to positively impact business outcomes. The Altiscale Insight Cloud Real-Time Edition combines real-time data ingestion and analytics, backed by Apache HBase and Spark Streaming, with the existing capabilities of the Altiscale Insight Cloud. The solution is offered as a "concierge cloud." Altiscale fully integrates and provides full operational services for all components of the Altiscale Insight Cloud Real-Time Edition. This ensures a streamlined, easy user experience and makes it possible for any organization to benefit from real-time analytics, since they don't have to invest in additional operations headcount or overburden their existing IT team. The Altiscale Insight Cloud Real-Time Edition raises user productivity through the use of graphical tools that simplify the work of ingesting, transforming, and analyzing data. The solution features a web interface that controls both streaming and batch data ingestion, data modeling, and data aggregation for subsequent analysis. This allows data scientists and analysts to avoid time-consuming data engineering work and instead focus on obtaining useful insights.

Altiscale, Inc. Introduces New Solution, the Altiscale Insight Cloud, a Self-Service Analytics Solution for Big Data

Altiscale, Inc., introduced a new solution, the Altiscale Insight Cloud, a self-service analytics solution for Big Data. The Altiscale Insight Cloud supplies the critical missing bridge between Big Data and the business user -- a rapidly queried data lake that enables business analysts to get critical answers all by themselves, while using familiar business intelligence tools like Tableau and Microsoft Excel. The Altiscale Insight Cloud powers interactive SQL queries, dynamic visualizations, real-time dashboards, and other reporting and analytics capabilities. As a high-performance, self-service analytics solution, the Altiscale Insight Cloud replaces more complex, expensive alternatives that require heavy IT involvement, allowing Big Data to be harnessed more broadly and quickly throughout the organization and improving the speed and size of business impact. For the typical enterprise, providing access to Big Data for business analysts is complex, slow, and expensive. It often involves significant IT time and resources, as well as the use of pricey proprietary solutions that are not necessarily the fastest medium between Big Data and the data visualization applications. As a solution that simplifies the connection between Big Data and the end user, as well as bypasses the need for expensive, proprietary solutions, the Altiscale Insight Cloud makes it fast and easy for business analysts to benefit from the rich, detailed data held in the Hadoop data lake.

Altiscale, Inc. Introduces Altiscale Data Cloud 4.0

Altiscale, Inc. introduced Altiscale Data Cloud 4.0, featuring upgrades to core Hadoop components, such as HDFS and YARN, and an expanded Spark-as-a-Service offering that supports all major versions of Apache Spark. With this new release, customers get increased performance, scalability and stability, ensuring that customers have the best possible Big Data experience on the Altiscale Data Cloud platform. In addition, Altiscale Data Cloud 4.0 meets the Hadoop ecosystem standards being established by the ODPi, so that applications adhering to the ODPi standard can be easily run on Altiscale or any Hadoop distribution that meets ODPi specifications. For the typical enterprise, running Hadoop and Spark is complex and resource intensive, with the challenges only increasing as data volumes expand. By offering a Hadoop and Spark platform in the cloud, with full operations support and elastic scalability, Altiscale ensures that customers can focus on the value they get from Big Data, while liberating them from the hassle of data management. Spark attracts wide interest for its ability to rapidly process large volumes of data. However, organizations often struggle to get started with Spark. Altiscale solves this problem by ensuring that customers have the support and operations expertise they need to be successful with Spark quickly. Altiscale Data Cloud 4.0 features expert advisory services to help customers establish analytical jobs, full operational support to ensure that workloads complete successfully and a high performance cloud infrastructure that has been specifically built and tuned for fast Big Data processing. The Spark-as-a-Service offering comes with Hadoop YARN for resource management, as well as a full workbench of data science tools. Altiscale Data Cloud 4.0 also addresses the challenges that organizations face with the rapid advancements in Spark development, which can hinder applications that were built for earlier versions. To help customers absorb the change at their own pace, Altiscale offers full support of all major recent Apache Spark versions (1.5.0, 1.4.1, 1.3.1). Customers will not only have access to the latest features and performance improvements for Spark, but will also be able to run prior versions that may be necessary for already-built analytical applications or data analysis.
