Software-as-a-service (SaaS) company Hammerspace has announced the release and availability of its Hammerspace solution – a hybrid cloud data control plane where data exists abstracted from storage and is available to any service, in any cloud or data center.
This product would allow enterprises to make data ubiquitous and universally accessible across existing infrastructure, containers, and clouds.
“Application owners, data scientists, and data engineers want to be freed from the time-consuming rigidity of managing data sprawl across storage silos,” said David Flynn, CEO of Hammerspace.
“The top reason analytics jobs fail is that they take too long. When a business can quickly gain visibility and access to quality data, it minimizes the delay between questions and answers, accelerating data-centric decision making.
Hammerspace gives users the freedom to run their jobs anywhere without time-consuming data discovery, copying, and preparation.”
Data Accessibility Hybrid Cloud
Analysts would agree that up until now, data accessibility across the hybrid cloud has been problematic. “As enterprises undergo a digital transformation data becomes an increasingly strategic resource; and going forward many companies determine success by how effectively they leverage their data assets to drive better-informed business decisions,” said Eric Burgener, research vice president, Infrastructure Systems, Platforms and Technologies, IDC. “Hammerspace uses technologies like artificial intelligence, machine learning, and metadata-intensive indexing in a software-based solution to drive a new level of data agility in hybrid cloud environments, helping data users traverse the data pipeline and get to useful insights that create better business outcomes more quickly.”
“Customers deploying Hammerspace today take advantage of unprecedented data agility to deliver mission-critical business insights,” said Mark Glasgow, VP Worldwide Sales, Hammerspace. “As a result, we are experiencing exciting customer traction in industry verticals such as oil & gas, media & entertainment, genomics, life sciences, managed service providers, and semiconductors.”
A workspace for data, free from the lock-in of storage silos, Hammerspace is a storage and protocol agnostic hybrid cloud data control plane, abstracting data from the infrastructure for self-service hybrid cloud data management, driven by machine learning and metadata management to deliver Data-as-a-Service.
