Zettaset and Actian Combine Hadoop & Advanced Data Analytics Into Powerful Enterprise-Class Big Data Solution

Solution Delivers Enterprise-Level Security and High Availability for Visual ETL, Data Quality, and Advanced Analytics Running Natively on Hadoop

MOUNTAIN VIEW, CA--(Marketwired - Oct 23, 2013) - Zettaset, the leader in secure Big Data management, has partnered with Actian, a next-generation leader in Big Data analytics, to integrate automated Hadoop cluster management with advanced analytic creation and information management natively on Hadoop. The combination of the Actian ParAccel Big Data Analytics Platform and Zettaset Orchestrator™ enables enterprises to manage the extreme speed and scale of Big Data mining and analysis while maintaining the highest levels of platform security and availability.

The Big Data ecosystem is complex. Actian + Zettaset deliver a powerful, enterprise-ready Big Data solution that eliminates the need for IT organizations to perform time-consuming in-house integration, and accelerates time-to-insight for corporate business units. The combined solution streamlines the analytic pipeline for business analysis while taking full advantage of the scalability and flexibility of Hadoop. Organizations can now focus on deriving value from Hadoop with the safety and reliability associated with traditional enterprise applications.

The ParAccel Big Data Analytics Platform delivers on the promise of no compromises, with high-performance execution and a graphical workbench for end-to-end data access, preparation, transformation, and analysis directly on Hadoop clusters. Analysis of web-scale data is now a fast and intuitive process for any workload, including discovery, exploration, and modeling, with comprehensive support for advanced analytics.

At the same time, Zettaset Orchestrator eliminates the complexities of Hadoop installation, and provides greater stability and control of the underlying Hadoop database infrastructure. Orchestrator is the only Big Data management solution designed to address enterprise requirements for security in a distributed computing environment, providing fine-grained role-based access control and security policy enforcement through LDAP/AD support. Orchestrator also provides comprehensive fail-over for all critical cluster services to ensure high availability.

The Actian + Zettaset solution is distribution-agnostic, meaning that it will work with the leading Hadoop distributions available today, including Cloudera CDH and Hortonworks HDP.

"We are excited to join forces with Actian to give the market a powerful combined solution for Big Data analytics and Hadoop cluster management," said Jim Vogt, CEO of Zettaset. "Customers can now accelerate speed to analytics while eliminating risk around Hadoop deployment."

"Partnering with Zettaset gives us a big advantage in the Hadoop cluster environment," said Mike Hoskins, CTO of Actian. "As the Hadoop ecosystem evolves, contributors must focus on providing products and solutions suited to a rigorous production environment. Though some question the value a business can derive from Hadoop in a 'real' enterprise setting, Actian and Zettaset take dead aim to deliver that value."
