Altiscale Announces Altiscale Insight Cloud Real-Time Edition

Latest Offering Provides a Fast, Affordable Solution for Streaming Big Data Analytics, Applicable to Use Cases Such as IoT, Recommendations, and Automated Alerts

PALO ALTO, CA--(Marketwired - Jun 14, 2016) - Altiscale, Inc., the leading provider of Big Data-as-a-Service, today 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 has been a tremendous advantage for us, since we are now able to make sense of large streams of customer and operational data easily and cost-effectively," said Edreece Arghandiwal, CEO of Jurni, which provides a mobile application for sharing experiences via video journals. "As an app publisher, it is critical for us to have up-to-the-minute information about our application performance at all times. Altiscale drives our real-time dashboard for monitoring usage and app health. It alerts us to any emerging issues, so we can rectify them quickly. And because Altiscale manages all aspects of the analytical operations for us, we are able to get the analytics that we need with a lean 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's mission is to help our customers find meaning from data. We introduced the Altiscale Insight Cloud earlier this year to expand the benefits of Big Data insights to a broader range of business users," said Raymie Stata, CEO and founder, Altiscale. "Today we are announcing the Altiscale Insight Cloud Real-Time Edition, so that enterprises can realize value from their high-velocity data, too. Now our users can act on revenue opportunities and respond to emerging situations in real time, without having to maintain and operate a Big Data analytics platform themselves."

Altiscale is a Silver Sponsor at Hadoop Summit from June 28th - June 30th in San Jose (Booth 1606). A demonstration of the Altiscale Insight Cloud will be available at the event. If you are interested in a private meeting, please go to
