Robin Cloud Platform First and Only Container Solution Certified to Run Hortonworks Data Platform

Robin Cloud Platform, a solution delivered by Robin Systems – a Silicon Valley based company founded in 2013 that has raised more than $27 million in venture funding from leading investors, is the first and only platform that has been certified to run the Hortonworks Data Platform (HDP) solution.

With a team that includes industry veterans from leading enterprise technology companies such as NetApp, Oracle, and Veritas, Robin Systems seeks to disrupt the $20 billion-plus virtualization market with its container-based compute and storage platform software.

Robin Cloud Platform is a container-based pure-software solution that sits between the application and the infrastructure and enables 1-click application workflows for the user by letting the applications auto-configure storage, compute and networking across on-premise and cloud-based environments. It has REST APIs and hooks to interface with the rest of the ecosystem and requires no changes to the applications.

Robin Cloud Platform would significantly simplify the deployment, management and consolidation of the containerized Hortonworks Data Platform (HDP) solution; on-premise or in the cloud.

“Hortonworks recognizes the multiple benefits of Docker container technologies when compared to virtual machines and how Robin Cloud Platform best enables the use of Containers for complex data-heavy pipelines,” said Scott Andress, Vice President, Global Channels & Alliances, Hortonworks. “Since Robin was the first Container solution to be tested for HDP certification, we dedicated our own QA team to put Robin Cloud Platform’s HDP support through a rigorous suite of tests across all components and aspects of our platform. Hortonworks is excited about this collaboration and looks forward to working with Hortonworks support subscribers who choose the Robin Cloud Platform for their HDP deployment.”

SAP-HANA, Oracle, MongoDB

Robin Cloud Platform’s architecture differentiation also applies to all Big-Data, NoSQL and RDBMS applications like Cassandra, MongoDB, Oracle, MySQL, Postgres, IBM-Db2 and SAP-HANA.

“We are honored to be the first and only Hortonworks’ certified partner designed and optimized for container technology,” said Premal Buch, CEO of Robin Systems. “We specifically architected Robin Cloud Platform for complex distributed applications like HDP that need much more than just Docker containers with storage plugin in order to meet production deployment and support requirements. I am happy to see this validated by Hortonworks testing as this is good peace of mind for our customers deploying HDP atop Robin Cloud Platform.”
