CUPERTINO, CA--(Marketwired - Jun 27, 2016) - Pepperdata, the world experts in the performance of distributed systems at scale, today announced that it has successfully completed the Hortonworks Data Platform (HDP) Certification process against HDP 2.1, HDP 2.2, HDP 2.3, and HDP 2.4 for Pepperdata 4.5. Together with Hortonworks, a leading innovator of open and connected data platforms, Pepperdata enables users to bring true multi-tenant, multi-workload capabilities to Hadoop with powerful and reliable cluster performance.
Pepperdata software actively governs and guarantees the consistent peak performance needed for success in modern distributed Hadoop environments. As part of the HDP certification, Pepperdata has been awarded critical YARN Ready and Security Ready badges by Hortonworks. With the YARN Ready badge, Pepperdata has been verified to work within YARN and is able to use the resources of a customer's Hadoop system to process Hadoop data in-place, without interfering with other YARN Ready tools and applications. Being granted the Security Ready badge means that Pepperdata passed rigorous integration tests with the security frameworks for Apache Hadoop including Kerberos, Apache Knox and Apache Range, and provides additional security for data and users.
"Customers are rapidly embracing Connected Data Platforms to unlock the business value of their data, but are simultaneously creating chaos that results from multiple users and workloads running in the same environment," said Ed Colonna, vice president of marketing and business development at Pepperdata. "Achieving certification with Hortonworks means joint customers can confidently deliver true Quality of Service for mission critical workloads on Hadoop without fatal contention for hardware resources or the need for workload isolation."
Pepperdata develops software that governs and guarantees consistent, peak performance of Hadoop clusters from hundreds to thousands of nodes. Enterprises, from Fortune 500 companies to SMBs, trust Pepperdata to deliver transparency and control over distributed systems, and eliminate blind spots in Hadoop environments. Pepperdata provides the only solution that can anticipate and avert cluster performance issues at both the user and job level to create order out of the chaos inherent in distributed computing. Its Adaptive Performance Core™ captures and processes second-by-second performance data to reshape application usage of CPU, RAM, network, and disk without user intervention, to ensure jobs complete on time. Pepperdata software dynamically prevents bottlenecks in multi-tenant, multi-workload clusters so that numerous users and jobs can run reliably on a single cluster at maximum utilization, increasing throughput by 30 to 50 percent. Job performance is enforced based on user-defined priorities and current cluster conditions, eliminating fatal contention for hardware resources and the need for workload isolation. The software also precisely pinpoints where problems are occurring so that IT teams can quickly identify and fix troublesome jobs. By capturing global knowledge of each cluster and controlling processes in real time to deliver Quality of Service, the software reclaims control over unpredictable cluster environments so that enterprises can realize untapped value from existing distributed infrastructures. The software installs in under an hour, runs on existing clusters, and is compatible with all major Hadoop distributions. With Pepperdata, enterprises can realize untapped value from existing distributed infrastructures and finally apply big data to more use cases to meet business objectives.
