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

IoT & Smart Cities Stories
When talking IoT we often focus on the devices, the sensors, the hardware itself. The new smart appliances, the new smart or self-driving cars (which are amalgamations of many ‘things'). When we are looking at the world of IoT, we should take a step back, look at the big picture. What value are these devices providing. IoT is not about the devices, its about the data consumed and generated. The devices are tools, mechanisms, conduits. This paper discusses the considerations when dealing with the...
