Zettaset Fast-PATH Delivers Advanced Process Automation to Big Data Ecosystem

Speeds Hadoop Deployments, Improves Operational Efficiencies, and Significantly Reduces Costly IT Support and Maintenance Requirements

MOUNTAIN VIEW, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 08/14/14 -- Zettaset, the leader in Big Data security, today announced Fast-PATH, an advanced software configuration management solution that automates and accelerates Hadoop deployment, significantly reducing the over-reliance on costly and time-consuming professional services that burdens today's Big Data environment.

Hadoop is rapidly evolving, but has not yet reached the level of maturity and sophistication that traditional relational databases offer. As a result, users expecting lower operational costs by using Hadoop software and infrastructure are surprised to find they must spend enormous sums for software support and maintenance in the form of recurring "subscription" fees.

Zettaset Fast-PATH streamlines Hadoop deployment for the enterprise with software automation that eliminates many manual configuration processes, thereby reducing ongoing support requirements. Fast-PATH automates multiple Hadoop functions, including provisioning, installation, configuration, and testing of the software. As a result, cluster deployment can be achieved more rapidly, with much less IT intervention and associated cost.

In recent benchmark testing, Zettaset Fast-PATH was able to fully install a 50-node Hadoop cluster in 140 minutes (2 hours and 20 minutes). The benchmark time included installation of the Hadoop distribution, as well as installation of Kerberos, HBase, Hive, Encryption, Key Management, and Zettaset's patented High-Availability framework on all nodes.

"Hadoop and other Big Data technologies are complex and challenging to set up, sometimes generating large costs for support and maintenance. This is not a scalable model for customers who want to efficiently move Hadoop into production networks," said CEO Jim Vogt of Zettaset. "Fast-PATH provides Hadoop users with a powerful solution that accelerates time to deployment and simplifies ongoing management, without putting an unnecessary drain on limited IT resources. We believe this innovation will spur wider adoption of Hadoop and Big Data technology in medium-sized enterprises, as well as in IT organizations that are more highly resourced."

"Because Hadoop is not a monolithic platform, deploying and securing it has not been a straightforward process," said Tony Baer, Principal Analyst for Ovum. "Our clients have long been asking for single, unified install capabilities that leverage wizard-based automation to take the bottlenecks and guesswork out of securing Hadoop."

Zettaset Fast-PATH Facts:

  • Fast-PATH can automatically deploy a fully-functional Hadoop cluster with nodes, services and the customer's distribution of choice with minimal user intervention
  • Provisions, installs, configures, and tests 10 nodes in 45 minutes
  • Provisions, installs, configures, and tests 50 nodes in 140 minutes
  • Time includes installation of Hadoop distribution, plus Kerberos, HBase, Hive, Encryption, Key Management, and patented High-Availability framework on all nodes

Additional Zettaset Orchestrator features and benefits include:

  • High-availability - provides automated failover for all Hadoop services and ensures cluster reliability for critical applications
  • Enterprise security - including encryption for data at-rest and in-motion, fine-grained role-based access control, and policy enforcement via automated AD/LDAP integration
  • Activity Monitoring - for audit, reporting, and compliance purposes

WebRTC sits at the intersection between VoIP and the Web. As such, it poses some interesting challenges for those developing services on top of it, but also for those who need to test and monitor these services. In his session at WebRTC Summit, Tsahi Levent-Levi, co-founder of testRTC, reviewed the various challenges posed by WebRTC when it comes to testing and monitoring and on ways to overcome them.
For basic one-to-one voice or video calling solutions, WebRTC has proven to be a very powerful technology. Although WebRTC’s core functionality is to provide secure, real-time p2p media streaming, leveraging native platform features and server-side components brings up new communication capabilities for web and native mobile applications, allowing for advanced multi-user use cases such as video broadcasting, conferencing, and media recording.

In his session at @ThingsExpo, Indraneel Mitra, Senior Solutions Architect & Technology Evangelist at Cognizant, provided valuable information and resources for both novice and experienced developers on how to get started with IoT and Golang in a day. He also provided information on how to use Intel Arduino Kit, Go Robotics API and AWS IoT stack to build an application tha...
Every successful software product evolves from an idea to an enterprise system. Notably, the same way is passed by the product owner's company. In his session at 20th Cloud Expo, Oleg Lola, CEO of MobiDev, will provide a generalized overview of the evolution of a software product, the product owner, the needs that arise at various stages of this process, and the value brought by a software development partner to the product owner as a response to these needs.

DevOps is being widely accepted (if not fully adopted) as essential in enterprise IT. But as Enterprise DevOps gains maturity, expands scope, and increases velocity, the need for data-driven decisions across teams becomes more acute. DevOps teams in any modern business must wrangle the ‘digital exhaust’ from the delivery toolchain, "pervasive" and "cognitive" computing, APIs and services, mobile devices and applications, the Internet of Things, and now even blockchain. In this power panel at @...

Web Real-Time Communication APIs have quickly revolutionized what browsers are capable of. In addition to video and audio streams, we can now bi-directionally send arbitrary data over WebRTC's PeerConnection Data Channels. With the advent of Progressive Web Apps and new hardware APIs such as WebBluetooh and WebUSB, we can finally enable users to stitch together the Internet of Things directly from their browsers while communicating privately and securely in a decentralized way.
The cloud market growth today is largely in public clouds. While there is a lot of spend in IT departments in virtualization, these aren’t yet translating into a true “cloud” experience within the enterprise. What is stopping the growth of the “private cloud” market?

What are the key differences between wh...
WebRTC has had a real tough three or four years, and so have those working with it. Only a few short years ago, the development world were excited about WebRTC and proclaiming how awesome it was. You might have played with the technology a couple of years ago, only to find the extra infrastructure requirements were painful to implement and poorly documented. This probably left a bitter taste in your mouth, especially when things went wrong.
IoT is at the core or many Digital Transformation initiatives with the goal of re-inventing a company's business model. We all agree that collecting relevant IoT data will result in massive amounts of data needing to be stored. However, with the rapid development of IoT devices and ongoing business model transformation, we are not able to predict the volume and growth of IoT data. And with the lack of IoT history, traditional methods of IT and infrastructure planning based on the past do not app...
