New York – Strata Conference + Hadoop World, Booth #34 – October 28, 2013 – Zaloni, a leading provider of peerless Hadoop software and services solutions, today announced Bedrock Data Management Platform™ 2.1. The newly released Bedrock product is Zaloni’s latest end-to-end solution for building and deploying Hadoop production applications that extend and enhance the collect, organize, analyze and visualize capabilities associated with big data management.
Zaloni Bedrock 2.1 responds to enterprise demand by extending the value of open source Hadoop solution and delivering new features enhancing functionality and interface ease. The Bedrock 2.1 data management platform enhancements include:
Metadata Enhancements: Provides enhanced ability to manage entities definition, and Versioning and Entity instances using an easy to use User Interface.
New Post Ingestion Actions: Adds two new workflow actions for post ingestion: Watermark files to uniquely identify data in Hadoop, and Mask and Tokenize data based on rules configured in metadata.
Workflow Enhancements: Delivers support for sub-workflows to allow code reuse and better workflow design, as well as improved log management.
Data Ingestion Enhancements: Provides dynamic destinations and support for custom attributes in file patterns.
With the latest Bedrock release, Zaloni builds upon its reputation for delivering strategic differentiation to customers through a deep understanding of the Hadoop landscape. New management and integration capability has been added taking Bedrock’s ease of use and integration into existing systems to a new level further expediting big data discovery across vast structured and unstructured data environments.
“Our customers have the same challenges they’ve had for years, however due to the volume of data growth and the cost of maintaining proprietary data warehouse and Analytics applications, they are being forced to face these challenges with an increased sense of urgency,” said Ben Sharma, CEO, Zaloni.” “Bedrock’s incredibly fast and integrated approach to addressing big data challenges delivers significant time savings, and as much as 40% cost savings for customers. Bedrock 2.1 further improves cost and time savings by harnessing the new features in the Hadoop ecosystem and increasing ease of use.”
With Bedrock customers accelerate business insight through ad-hoc analytics and data-mining while reducing total cost of ownership (TCO) of enterprise data warehouse (EDW) archiving. Bedrock shortens time to production, speeds onboarding of datasets, provides metadata support, adds searchable view of the Data Catalog in Hadoop and enforces policies and compliance.
Zaloni Bedrock 2.1 Continues to make it Easier for Customers to Reap Rapid Benefits
The Zaloni Bedrock 2.1 platform provides superior metadata management in a simple interface, makes it easy to define and store custom metadata, and allows data in Hadoop to be processed using actions like Watermarking, Masking, Tokenization, Hive and custom MapReduce.
Additionally, customers can further improve response times and cost savings by rapidly building and deploying Enterprise Data Repository – commonly known as Data Lake and a feature of Bedrock 2.1 – using the scale out, cost effective Hadoop platform to meet the Data Integration, Data Management and Governance requirements of an Enterprise data platform.
Raj Nadipalli, Senior Solution Architect, Zaloni said, “When it comes to Hadoop solutions enterprise customers tell us their priorities are speed of implementation, seamless integration with existing technology, and immediate time and cost savings. Bedrock 2.1 represents our ongoing commitment to deliver on customer requirements by going beyond foundational knowledge of Hadoop to understand the source code at its lowest level.”
