Durham, North Carolina – October 25, 2014 –Zaloni, a leading provider of peerless Hadoop software and solutions, today announced that the Zaloni Bedrock Data Management Platform™ is now a certified application on Apache Spark.
The Apache Spark in-memory processing framework reduces the speed of ingestion limitations inherent in Hadoop. With the speed, ease and real-time processing advantages of Spark, married with the streamlined and automated installation, workflow simplification, and distribution agnostic characteristics of Zaloni’s Bedrock, customers can build Hadoop-based data lakes more rapidly than ever before.
“While the number of enterprise organizations leveraging Spark continues to grow at a rapid pace, so does the size of the production systems,” said Ben Sharma, CEO, Zaloni. “With Spark speed of ingestion limitations are reduced, and with Zaloni’s ability to ingest, organize and prepare massive volumes of data simultaneously, the application of the Databricks and Zaloni joint solution spans across every vertical. As enterprises focus more and more on rapidly realizing business value from their data lakes, rapid implementation is not just a ‘nice to have’, it’s a requirement.”
“We are thrilled to announce the certification of Zaloni Bedrock platform. With the increasing demand for increasingly complex and highly sophisticated solutions, Enterprises using Spark can leverage a platform with proven experience across verticals,” said John Tripier, Alliance and Ecosystem lead at Databricks. “With the Zaloni Bedrock Data Management Platform certified on Spark, customers no longer need to piece together solutions to benefit from cost, time and performance efficiencies.”
