Appfluent Partners with Cloudera to Slash Data Warehouse Costs
Partnership Means Faster, More Valuable Offloads from Legacy Analytic Databases to Hadoop
Rockville, MD (PRWEB) August 07, 2013
Appfluent Technology, Inc., a provider of Big Data usage analytic solutions, has been selected by Cloudera as a partner to accelerate movement of workload and data from their customers’ enterprise data warehouses to the Cloudera Enterprise big data platform. Cloudera, the leader in enterprise analytic data management powered by Apache Hadoop™, will leverage the Appfluent partnership to make migration to Hadoop a faster, more data-driven process with greater ROI. Many of Appfluent’s customers have already adopted Cloudera as their Apache Hadoop distribution provider of choice.
"The combination of Appfluent and Cloudera allows enterprises to offload expensive, resource-consuming data warehouse processes and data to Hadoop, while extending the capacity and performance of existing big data warehouse systems,” said Tim Stevens, vice president, Business Development, Cloudera. “This partnership provides organizations with the knowledge and confidence needed to advance the Hadoop platform in the enterprise."
Appfluent’s Visibility™ software shows companies which of their Big Data is most expensive and thereby most suitable to move to Hadoop, which is more economical. Appfluent's data usage analytics software delivers deep-dive visibility into data warehouse and BI systems, so enterprises can see how data is being used or not used, slash rising data warehouse costs, and proactively manage BI performance while unlocking the value of Hadoop to transform the economics of Big Data analytics. Armed with this knowledge, and with the help of Cloudera, organizations can create Hadoop migration plans immediately. They can begin to offload data from expensive data warehouse platforms and provide access to unused, dormant, or infrequently used data via Hadoop.
"Companies stand to save millions of dollars if they can move to Hadoop before running out of space on the enterprise data warehouse,” said Shawn Dolley, vice president, Corporate Development and Strategy at Appfluent. "Exploding data growth means companies are faced with rapidly rising infrastructure costs. Hadoop can solve those costs, but organizations sometimes stall, wondering how to transition from Hadoop sandboxes to production deployments. The promise of Hadoop is an order of magnitude cost reduction: Cloudera and Appfluent together show you what is happening with your existing databases and what can be moved immediately."
Moving data from high-cost legacy database vendors is an imperative for data-centric enterprises looking for competitive advantage. But realizing the full benefit of Hadoop requires identifying the right data, applications and processes to move—a true challenge because enterprises have no idea what’s happening inside their analytic databases. Appfluent delivers deep visibility into data warehouse and business intelligence systems. By showing exactly which data is being used or not used, only Appfluent gives IT the information and insight that lets them begin the move to Hadoop from a starting point that leads to success.
Appfluent provides IT organizations with unprecedented visibility into usage and performance of data warehouse and business intelligence systems. IT decision makers can view exactly which data is being used or not used, determine how business intelligence systems are performing and identify causes of database performance issues. With Appfluent, enterprises can address exploding data growth with confidence, proactively manage performance of BI and data warehouse systems, and realize the tremendous economies of Hadoop.
