Altiscale, Inc.'s New Cloud Service Delivers SQL-on-Hadoop in Days

Altiscale, Inc. announced a comprehensive SQL-on-Hadoop offering for the Altiscale Data Cloud. The complete offering is the first to allow companies to instantly access hundreds of terabytes of Hadoop Distributed File System resources through a SQL User Interface or API without having to go through the pain of setting up Hadoop and its toolset themselves. The new capabilities of this service are critical steps in enabling the mainstream adoption of Hadoop, as companies with extensive SQL assets considering Hadoop are delaying implementation due to the risk, time and resources associated with on-premise solutions. With announcement, companies using the Altiscale Data Cloud can implement production-ready SQL-on-Hadoop within a matter of days at minimal cost, with virtually no risk. Altiscale's new offering combines three technologies the company has been using in production for several months: The Hive 0.13 + Tez SQL engine. Hive 0.13 with the Tez engine is the most scalable interactive query engine on Hadoop; A Web-based SQL query tool, providing an easy-to-use, collaborative environment for analysts to access Hive. Through a partnership with Simba Technologies, Altiscale is providing the ODBC interface to Hadoop, allowing customers to leverage popular data visualization tools such as Tableau or Microsoft Excel on their Hadoop installation. Companies leveraging the Altiscale Data Cloud for SQL-on-Hadoop will realize four primary benefits: Time-to-Value: Altiscale's Data Cloud delivers SQL-on-Hadoop in days versus months for an on-premise solution. That allows the data science team to be productive almost two full business quarters sooner in creating business value. Low Risk: As a cloud service, Altiscale lets customers dip their toe in the water to see if SQL-on-Hadoop is right for them, without the risk of heavy, up-front capital and operational expenses. Low TCO: In addition to eliminating up-front costs, Altiscale's unique billing model means companies pay less over time and only for the Hadoop resources they use. Furthermore, Altiscale's Hadoop Helpdesk helps customers keep their Hadoop jobs running smoothly and keeps Hadoop software up-to-date, without the need for an internal operations team. Superior Performance: Altiscale has built the best infrastructure for cloud-based Hadoop available in the market. The Altiscale Data Cloud with SQL-on-Hadoop is available now. Interested parties can also find out more at next week's Strata + Hadoop World conference taking place in New York City at the Javits Center from October 15 through October 17, 2014.
