Altiscale, Inc. Key Developments

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.

For Altiscale Data Cloud customers, the Intelligence Platform is tightly integrated and can be deployed in minutes using just a few clicks. With Altiscale Data Cloud, the AtScale Intelligence Platform runs on top of enterprise-grade Hadoop in the cloud, reducing time to value, lowering costs and eliminating implementation risk. Since Altiscale runs a complete Hadoop ecosystem for its customers, it also eliminates one of Hadoop's challenges: ongoing operational risk. This allows customers to focus on their business goals without losing time and effort to the ongoing burden of Hadoop management.
