With Hadoop and Hortonworks Data Platform Qualified on HyperStore 5.1 Software and Appliances, Customers Can Perform In-Place Data Analysis at Petabyte-Scale; Cloudian Becomes Hortonworks Certified Technology Partner

FOSTER CITY, CA – January 15, 2015 — /BackupReview.info/ — Cloudian, Inc., the leading provider of hybrid cloud storage solutions, today announced availability of Cloudian HyperStore 5.1 software. HyperStore 5.1 is an enhanced Amazon S3-compliant, plug-and-play hybrid cloud software solution that now features full Apache Hadoop integration. Enterprises can now transform big data into smart data by running Hadoop analytics on HyperStore software and appliances. This in-place analytics, with no need to offload data to other systems for Hadoop analyses, enables customers to derive meaningful business intelligence from their data quickly, efficiently and economically.

“Analytics is the foundation of smart data. To store data on a smart system like HyperStore, and run Hadoop on top of it, offers huge business advantages to enterprises in terms of scalability, efficiency and cost savings,” said Paul Turner, chief marketing officer at Cloudian. “From the financial industry to medical research, there is no shortage of markets that will benefit from turning big data into smart data in pursuit of realizing market- and revenue-shifting insights.”

“The ability to analyze big data right in the storage bank is a game changer for organizations as they move closer to realizing the potential of the Internet of Things. This is what everyone wants to do but it has been too complicated and cost-prohibitive, until now,” said Ashish Nadkarni, research director for storage systems and software, IDC Research. “Presenting the Hadoop community with an attractive option for fast, flexible, in-place big data analytics, Cloudian HyperStore 5.1 is a leading massively scalable, smart data system, capable of yielding high value insights without the high price tag.”

Cloudian also announced it has joined the Hortonworks® Technology Partner Program and has successfully completed testing, thereby achieving Hortonworks’ Certification. By achieving certification, Cloudian HyperStore customers now have access to Hortonworks Data Platform (HDP), the only 100 percent open source data management platform for Hadoop.
