BlueData, a pioneer in Big Data private clouds, has announced rapid growth of its Big Data partner ecosystem. Their thirteen partner companies now include infrastructure partner Cisco and Intel; distribution partners Cloudera, Databricks, Hortonworks, and MapR; systems integration partners MetaScale and Zaloni; technology partners Big Switch and RedHat; and application partners Informatica, Platfora, and Trifacta.
BlueData’s EPIC platform brings the advantages of the cloud – elasticity, flexibility and ease of deployment – to on-premises infrastructure for Big Data deployments. The prestigious industry players mentioned would recognize the value of BlueData’s EPIC platform in simplifying private cloud infrastructure and eliminating complexity as a barrier to adoption.
“Infrastructure complexity is a real problem that is slowing down Big Data success,” said John Myers, senior analyst of Business Intelligence (BI) at Enterprise Management Associates – a Boulder, CO based industry analysis firm. “BlueData offers a compelling solution to that problem with the ability to deliver public-cloud-like consumption models on-premises. The company’s ability to build this broad set of partnerships with the most significant players in the Big Data and larger computing industry is an endorsement that the problem is real and that BlueData offers a compelling solution to help enterprises harness the power of Big Data in the cloud.”
Based in Mountain View, California, BlueData is founded by a highly experienced team from VMware, Akamai, Intel and SGI and backed by industry luminaries from Silicon Valley.
“We’ve worked closely with BlueData since its inception, as we believe our combined infrastructure innovations can help transform the Big Data marketplace,” said Mike Werner, senior director of global technology ecosystems, Red Hat. “BlueData EPIC, working with Red Hat infrastructure technologies, is set to evolve the Big Data consumption experience and allow enterprises the opportunity to realize the value of Big Data more quickly.”
