(Ping! Zine Web Hosting Magazine) – GoGrid, a leading cloud infrastructure company, today announced the GoGrid Big Data Solution, a new offering based on a hybrid infrastructure architecture that combines the best of cloud computing with single-tenant infrastructure components—all managed through the GoGrid management portal. This solution provides businesses with maximum flexibility, choice, performance, and control. GoGrid’s new Big Data Solution is built to support high-performance analytic jobs and can be used for applications that leverage NoSQL solutions like Hadoop to serve up content via app servers.
GoGrid’s new Big Data Solution bundle includes pre-configured hardware to match requirements for running Cloudera’s Distribution of Hadoop (CDH) as an introduction to Hadoop or proof of concept. The bundle consists of 1 Name Node and 3 Data Nodes in a multi-rack architecture plus GoGrid’s Professional Cloud plan. With this solution, GoGrid customers leverage cloud servers to quickly scale on-demand to meet sudden spikes in traffic while leveraging single-tenant infrastructure specially designed for analytical use cases.
“The GoGrid cloud is about automation and allowing customers to scale efficiently,” said Jeffrey Samuels, chief marketing officer, GoGrid. “With the introduction of the new Big Data Solution, GoGrid provides businesses with a reliable, high-performance hybrid cloud infrastructure specifically designed for Big Data workloads in the cloud. We’re excited that we’ve already helped many customers optimize their Hadoop clusters on GoGrid and created this flexible hybrid solution to deliver the performance and scalability they require.”
“Organizations of all sizes are embracing the use of Big Data analytics tools like Hadoop as well as incorporating cloud transaction processing principles into applications that need massive scale, including the use of NoSQL databases such as Cassandra,” said Lydia Leong, research vice president at Gartner. “Because these technologies are new to many organizations, customers may seek assistance from service providers—whether cloud IaaS providers with strong customer support and managed services capabilities around these technologies or consultancies that specialize in these technologies—to ensure they implement an architecture that will be stable in production and flexibly and dynamically scale.”
Martini Media, the leading digital advertising platform for reaching affluent U.S. consumers, has already deployed GoGrid’s Big Data Solution. Martini’s platform requires substantial processing power to handle more than 250 million online events each day. “We considered four providers, and only GoGrid offered everything we wanted,” said Manicka Babu, VP of engineering at Martini Media. “Most important was the hybrid architecture. We’re very pleased with the performance we receive using GoGrid. The improvements in Cassandra replication and latency are impressive.”
