Pentaho and Xyratex today announced our strategic partnership to deliver the world’s first integrated Big Data analytics and scalable storage solution. We have been working on this joint initiative for some time with the ClusterStor team at Xyratex. ClusterStor is the worlds fastest and most performant storage sub-system. This will be significantly enhanced by the addition of Hortonworks Hadoop and Pentaho Business Analytics.
Xyratex and Pentaho will make Big Data, Fast Data. This solves a key pain point for Xyratex’s customers. With all of the compute, storage, database and analytics in one true integrated platform, this appliance will eliminate the large data silos as well as put all of that Big Data, into the hands of the business users. And it will do that fast! The ClusterStor, Hadoop and Pentaho Big Data Appliance will deliver business analytics on huge data sets, at the lowest TCO and allow the ClusterStor customers to realize rapid business value from their data with a very short time to value.
Xyratex has taken the complexity of deploying Hadoop away from the customer with this integrated appliance. Critically, ClusterStor also meets all the key criteria in the deployment of an enterprise class Big Data solution; scalable, best in class performance, reliability and rapid time.
