SwiftStack announces Data Analytics solution with 10x performance and massive scale

SwiftStack, the leader in multi-cloud data storage and management, today announced a new solution for big data analytics and machine learning for hybrid cloud and multi-cloud environments.

The solution is built for data-driven workloads using popular frameworks and applications like Hadoop, Spark, Presto, TensorFlow, and Hive, and delivers ten times the performance with a practical, cost-effective workflow spanning on-premise and public cloud resources. This enables users to create a high-performance big data analytics or AI/ML data pipeline in a “memory-first” architecture where storage and compute are decoupled and can scale on-demand, to billions of files and hundreds of petabytes, as data load and/or performance needs grow.

The SwiftStack solution is powered by SwiftStack’s object-based cloud storage and 1space multi-cloud data management as well as Alluxio, a data orchestration layer that sits between compute frameworks and storage. This eliminates common challenges with analytics applications today, including a lack of enterprise-ready multi-cloud workflows with appropriate data management tools, insufficient throughput, or insufficient API compatibility to support descriptive, interactive and predictive analytical workloads.

“We’re seeing an ever-increasing demand to extract value from data with AI and analytics workloads, and bringing the data closer to compute anywhere, with high performance and low cost is consistently becoming a challenge for enterprises,” said Dipti Borkar, Alluxio Vice President of Product and Marketing. “SwiftStack’s data analytics solution solves this problem by providing a cost effective yet high performance and rich alternative to power modern data-intensive workloads.”

“Enterprises are ready to move from HDFS to on-premise S3, enabled by ingest and training performance, meta-data scalability, durability, and economics, but often data locality and API support used to be obstacles,” said Shailesh Manjrekar, Head of AI/ML Solutions Marketing and Corporate Development at SwiftStack. “Our new solution brings together the best of both worlds – SwiftStack providing the ideal data storage and management platform and Alluxio providing the compute data orchestration and API accessibility.”

The solution is easy to deploy and scale by adding standard on-premises server hardware and account capacity in Amazon Web Services or Google Cloud Platform. Applications and users have universal access (file and object) to a single data namespace, and data is placed across the system by user-defined policies. Any amount of metadata can be added and indexed in the system, allowing for easier searching.

The precious oil is extracted from the seeds of prickly pear cactus plant. After taking out the seeds from the fruits, they are adequately dried and then cold pressed to obtain the oil. Indeed, the prickly seed oil is quite expensive. Well, that is understandable when you consider the fact that the seeds are really tiny and each seed contain only about 5% of oil in it at most, plus the seeds are usually handpicked from the fruits. This means it will take tons of these seeds to produce just one b...
