Talena Reinvents Traditional Data Management With Big Data Availability Management Solution

Solution Protects Critical Data Assets Across Next Generation Platforms From NoSQL to Hadoop to Modern Data Warehouses

MILPITAS, CA--(Marketwired - August 11, 2015) - Talena, a pioneer in Big Data Availability Management, today announced the immediate availability of the Talena Big Data Availability Management solution, a new software architecture that optimizes data management processes to alleviate today's Big Data challenges. The company also announced that it has secured $12 million in financing.

With annual growth rates exceeding 40%, Big Data technologies such as Cassandra, MongoDB, Spark, Impala, and HP Vertica, have given rise to new types of applications across all industries. However, the unique deployment models of these data platforms make it impossible for traditional data management solutions to support the modern application lifecycle. As a result, mission-critical processes like application recovery and test/dev management are rapidly increasing IT costs and absorbing valuable technical resources.

The first to focus on Big Data workloads, the Talena solution was developed to address a fundamentally different set of requirements for data availability management including:

  • Petabyte-scale architecture. Scale elastically and horizontally to run data workloads that are 100x the size of traditional environments
  • Manageability In a distributed environment. Support thousands of distributed nodes via an agentless architecture
  • Storage optimization across diverse data. Implement storage reduction techniques that are optimized for unique data formats
  • Support for data-aware workflows. Expand beyond traditional file-based approaches to include data-aware processes
  • Compute and storage pools on any commodity environment. Run on any reference architecture based on commodity hardware and storage

The Talena solution delivers an entirely new architecture that overcomes the limitations inherent in traditional data management operations. Via the Talena software environment, companies can implement multiple workflows including test/dev management, backup and recovery, archiving, and disaster recovery.

"Our data assets are fundamental to our business operations," said Abhijit Pol, Head of Data Systems at Rocketfuel. "Talena's new approach to data availability management greatly reduces the risk associated with data loss and corruption, while simultaneously providing us with resource savings across our rapidly growing infrastructure."

"As Big Data applications grow in size and scope, companies need to rethink the data management architecture required to support their SLA goals," said Talena Founder and CEO Nitin Donde. "Today, companies often write one-off scripts to create backup copies or to move data to test/dev sandboxes or for archival purposes. This approach isn't scalable and makes it difficult to recover data as needed, and results in increased capital and operational burdens."

"Talena plays a critical role for us as we expand our exchange operations," said Kersi Tavadia, CIO, Bombay Stock Exchange. "When we moved to a Big Data architecture, we knew that application and data backup and recovery was a fundamental requirement. Where most conventional methods would fall short, Talena provides that at scale."
