BlueData Grows Big Data Partner Ecosystem

BlueData_logoBlueData, a pioneer in Big Data private clouds, announced rapid growth of its Big Data partner ecosystem, a group comprised of highly influential technology companies spanning infrastructure, Big Data distributions, ETL/BI applications and system integrators to accelerate the adoption of Big Data Private Cloud on-premises. The thirteen partner companies include infrastructure partner Cisco and Intel; distribution partners Cloudera, Databricks, Hortonworks, and MapR; system integration partners MetaScale and Zaloni; technology partners Big Switch and RedHat; and application partners Informatica, Platfora, and Trifacta. Building this comprehensive partner ecosystem furthers the BlueData mission to democratize Big Data, making it easy and cost-effective for enterprises of all sizes to deploy a self-service, private cloud on-premises.

The strength of the BlueData solution is not only complemented, but validated, by the numerous alliances with prestigious industry players that recognize the value of the EPICTM platform in simplifying private cloud infrastructure and eliminating complexity as a barrier to adoption. BlueData’s EPIC platform brings the advantages of the cloud – elasticity, flexibility and ease of deployment – to on-premises infrastructure for Big Data deployments.

Infrastructure complexity is a real problem that is slowing down Big Data success,” said John Myers, senior analyst of Business Intelligence (BI) at Enterprise Management Associates – a Boulder, CO based industry analysis firm. “BlueData offers a compelling solution to that problem with the ability to deliver public-cloud-like consumption models on-premises. The company’s ability to build this broad set of partnerships with the most significant players in the Big Data and larger computing industry is an endorsement that the problem is real and that BlueData offers a compelling solution to help enterprises harness the power of Big Data in the cloud.”

In a recent survey conducted by Intel, 82 percent of CIOs agreed that Big Data solutions would significantly improve business. However, only five percent have actually deployed the technology. These organizations are slowed by prohibitive costs and lengthy and complex implementations. Enterprises whose core business is not technology are hit particularly hard. These companies require a more flexible, cost-effective approach that is not reliant on large engineering staffs or big budgets. BlueData bridges that gap with its EPIC platform.

BlueData is making Big Data accessible to companies of all sizes, allowing them to create flexible and scalable on-premise production and test environments where people can work with, and experiment with, a variety of Big Data applications. This tremendous value has quickly attracted an all-star line-up of partners,” said Kumar Sreekanti, co-founder and CEO of BlueData. “We look forward to adding many more best-in-class applications and technologies to our partner ecosystem.”  

BlueData EPIC Enterprise Platform

EPIC is a software platform that organizations deploy on commodity hardware to create a Big Data private cloud. IT can deliver Big Data as a high-performing on-premise service, while provisioning, managing and administering Big Data infrastructure through a role-based web portal, which transforms the consumption experience. The BlueData EPIC platform allows enterprises of all sizes to build agile, secure and cost-effective Big Data deployments that deliver value in days instead of months and at a cost savings of 50 percent to 75 percent compared with traditional approaches. BlueData’s EPIC platform works with any storage, any server and can run any Big Data application. The EPIC platform incorporates many patent-pending technologies.
