BlueData to Showcase Big Data Infrastructure Software Innovations at Strata + Hadoop World San Jose

Featuring Telecommunications Case Study and Technology Demos with Hadoop, Spark, and Tachyon

Mountain View, Calif. – BlueData, the pioneer in Big Data private clouds, today announced that the company will participate in Strata + Hadoop World, taking place February 17 -20, 2015 at the San Jose Convention Center in San Jose, Calif. In October, BlueData won first place in the Startup Solution Showcase competition at the Strata + Hadoop World conference in New York.

At booth #1521, BlueData will demo the BlueData EPIC software platform that organizations can use to simplify, streamline, and speed the deployment of their on-premises Big Data infrastructure. The BlueData EPIC platform allows enterprises of all sizes to deliver value with Hadoop and Big Data within days instead of months, and at a cost savings of 50 percent to 75 percent compared to traditional bare-metal infrastructure approaches. The BlueData team will demonstrate self-service provisioning of pre-integrated Big Data environments with Hadoop clusters and BI/ETL/Search applications for agile exploration and analytics as well as recent innovations with Apache Spark and Tachyon for in-memory speed and real-time data processing.

In addition, BlueData was selected to present a customer case study in the Solutions Showcase Theater.

BlueData to Present Big Data Use Case in Telecommunications on Thursday, February 19 at 1:30 p.m. PT in the Solution Showcase Theater.

Nanda Vijaydev, Director of Solutions Management at BlueData, will present a case study on how a leading telecommunications company used BlueData EPIC to reduce the cost and complexity of their Big Data deployment for both data scientists and their data center infrastructure team.

Customer satisfaction is an imperative in the highly competitive telecommunications industry. The ability to analyze customer interactions across multiple channels is increasingly important to ensuring customer retention and high satisfaction rates. To obtain those insights, data scientists and engineers need to use different tools and algorithms without having to worry about infrastructure, systems installation, data movement and administration.

This telecommunications company is using BlueData to simplify and speed the deployment of these Big Data tools and technologies. BlueData provides a multi-tenant, self-service environment where teams can spin up their own Hadoop or Spark clusters on-demand, using the analytical tools and distribution of their choice, while ensuring the security and governance required by their IT operations and data center teams.

BlueData’s EPIC platform works with any storage, runs on any server, and works with any Big Data application.  IT teams and users can provision, manage and administer Big Data infrastructure in a virtualized environment through a role-based web portal with a few simple mouse clicks. The BlueData platform eliminates the complexity of deploying Big Data infrastructure, so that all stakeholders can instantly build and manage their Hadoop or Spark projects.
