SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwired - Sep 15, 2016) - SBOX Inc., a leading provider of appliances and software that simplify big data, today announced the SBOX 2.0 Big Data Appliance, its next generation solution that is engineered to streamline the deployment, management and daily operations of big data platforms. The SBOX 2.0 Appliance (https://sboxinc.com/) is easy to deploy and allows users to realize value from their big data implementations faster and more securely than ever before.
The SBOX 2.0 Appliance comprises an optimized and security hardened operating system, high-performance storage, and the SBOX Manager, an intuitive user interface that provides visibility into the network and makes it fast and easy to set up, modify, review and manage big data platforms. The newly launched SBOX Solution Center houses best-in-class apps built by the company and its partners to scale the value of Splunk and Hadoop.
"The growing demand for big-data powered insight from more business units in the enterprise is putting tremendous pressure on IT expertise, cost and speed," said Navin Ganeshan, chief product officer, SBOX, Inc. "The SBOX appliance is specifically designed to mitigate those challenges. The new features in v2.0, combined with our partner-first strategy, will help customers realize dramatically faster time to value from their big data deployments."
"Becoming an SBOX Technology Alliance Partner allows us to better serve our customers and reach new markets," said Josh Applebaum, vice president, product strategy, Ziften. "We're thrilled to integrate our next-generation endpoint security solution in the SBOX Solution Center and further our mission to help companies quickly deal with known and unknown threats that get through their defenses."
The SBOX Manager improves productivity and reduces errors by enabling users to quickly gain insight and control of their big data platforms. Now, making changes or provisioning nodes on the network, once a lengthy and cumbersome task, is a simple one-step process. Additionally, connectors for Splunk and Hadoop make it easier than ever for administrators to move data from one place to another based on their needs.
SBOX Manager also features rapid provisioning, security hardening, built in failover management capabilities, and an easy to use, refreshed web interface which benefits technology experts and non-experts alike.
SBOX Solution Center
The new Solution Center is an out-of-the-box catalog of applications and integrations from the company and its partners. The apps connect, manage, and analyze information across data stores and have been built to optimize Splunk and Hadoop implementations. They are fully automated to work seamlessly with big data platforms without services or implementation.
One application housed in the Solution Center is the award-winning, Alert Manager. Developed by SBOX expert Simon Balz, this app adds simple incident workflows to Splunk. The general purpose is to provide a common app with dashboards in order to investigate fired alerts or notable events. It can be used with every Splunk alert and works as an extension on top of Splunk's built-in alerting mechanism.
