February 18th, 2014 By: John Rath
Zettaset is granted a new U.S. patent for Hadoop high availability, Couchbase releases Server 2.5 Enterprise edition of its NoSQL database, and Pentaho powers big data analytics with Storm and YARN.
Zettaset granted Hadoop Patent. Big data management provider Zettaset announced that the United States Patent and Trademark Office has granted the company a new patent for “split brain resistant fail-over in high availability Hadoop clusters”. The newly patented technology provides a future-proof approach to high-availability and ensures that automatic failover is applied to all services running in a Hadoop cluster, as well as any new Hadoop services that may be introduced in the future. The high availability technology is at the core of Orchestrator, an enterprise software application that complements open-source products to help them meet enterprise requirements. “Our mission at Zettaset is to accelerate the adoption of Apache open-source Hadoop and help enterprise customers to safely and confidently move from pilot to production, no matter which distribution is being used. Our newly-patented, high-availability technology represents a major breakthrough for enterprise organizations that require and expect rock-solid dependability from their Hadoop clusters, and complements the existing open-source ecosystem,” said Jim Vogt, president and CEO of Zettaset. “This unique capability from Zettaset, along with the most comprehensive security available for Hadoop environments, makes Hadoop truly compelling to the enterprise.”
Couchbase releases Server 2.5 Enterprise edition. Enterprise NoSQL database provider Couchbase announced the release of Couchbase Server 2.5 Enterprise Edition- featuring capabilities for enterprise-grade performance, with new features such as Rack Awareness for high availability and cross data center (XDCR) data encryption for secure data center replication. The new edition’s newly introduced Rack Awareness provides a simple, flexible and effective solution for data replication that is easy to scale and administer. With Couchbase Rack Awareness, the user can create logical groupings of Couchbase Server nodes and replica copies of the data are automatically distributed across server nodes located on different racks. This intelligent data replication ensures that data is secure despite disruptions such as power outages, or switch or rack failure. “Enterprises requiring the highest scalability and availability are consistently choosing Couchbase over traditional databases and other NoSQL vendors,” said Rahim Yaseen, Senior Vice President, Couchbase. “With the Rack Awareness and data encryption capabilities included in Couchbase Server 2.5 Enterprise Edition, we continue to establish Couchbase as the clear choice for global enterprises requiring high availability, reliability and security.”
Pentaho powers big data analytics with Storm and YARN. Pentaho announced the native integration of Pentaho Data Integration (PDI) with Storm and YARN. The integration allows developers to process big data analytics in real time, so businesses can make critical decisions based on time-sensitive data. “As an M2M leader in the Internet of Everything, our wireless solutions require innovative technology to bring big data insights to business users, ” said Bryan Stone, Cloud Platform Lead, Synapse Wireless. “The powerful combination of Pentaho Data Integration, Storm and YARN will allow my team to immediately leverage real-time processing, without the delay of batch processing or the overhead of designing additional transformations. No doubt this advancement will have a big impact on the next generation of big data analytics.”
