Durham, North Carolina – October 15, 2014 –Zaloni, a leading provider of peerless Hadoop software and solutions, today announced that they have entered into a partnership agreement with WE-Ankor. This agreement further extends Zaloni’s global reach, and adds the Zaloni Bedrock Data Management Platform to WE-Ankor’s big data practice.
WE-Ankor announced the formation of a Big Data practice earlier this year, and were looking for a platform that offered customers a fully integrated Hadoop data management platform that integrates data ingestion, organization and preparation. The addition of Zaloni as a partner means that rather than having to cobble a solution together using a number of distributions, WE-Ankor can now offer a single, distribution agnostic platform to their customers. For customers who have multiple data sources, and multiple distributions, the Zaloni Bedrock and WE-Ankor partnership offers a way to ingest data rapidly from any source, organize that data, and prepare it for analytics.
“Zaloni provides the only fully integrated, enterprise ready, data management platform that was built specifically on Hadoop,” said Tal Meiron, director of Big Data Solutions at WE-Ankor. “The value that Zaloni brings is in the simplification and accelerated development and deployment of Hadoop Data Lakes. Speeding time to business value for large scale big data projects is critical. Business moves at the speed of light; the Zaloni Bedrock Data Management Platform can keep up.”
“WE-Ankor is the fastest growing IT integration company in Israel,” said Ben Sharma, CEO, Zaloni. “With over 1000 customers across the region, WE-Ankor has played a large role in the rapid growth of Israel’s high-tech sector. We are thrilled to partner with WE-Ankor and look forward to expanding our business into Israel. With their extensive experience in IT integration, data management, storage and networking, they are an ideal partner for Zaloni.”
WE-Ankor is part of the Hilan Group, a publicly traded company on the Tel Aviv Stock Exchange, and a leading IT integration company. WE-Ankor provides IT infrastructure solutions across the region, specializing in data storage and backup, virtualization, network infrastructure, big data, cloud, and security and cyber solutions.
