Aster Data's Massively Parallel Data Warehouse and Advanced Analytics Solution Now Available on Terremark's Enterprise Cloud

Originally published March 29, 2010

Aster Data, a provider of a data management and processing platform for big data and analytics-intensive applications, and Terremark Worldwide, Inc., a provider of managed IT infrastructure services, announced a strategic initiative to help customers rapidly deploy and scale Aster Data's massively parallel data warehouse and advanced analytics solution for big data sets through a combination of their innovative solutions. This initiative combines Aster Data's advanced solution for data management and analytics processing with Terremark's Enterprise Cloud infrastructure services and expertise to meet the growing market demand for faster and richer analysis on terabytes and petabytes of data. Aster Data's solution provides online precision scaling and highly advanced analytics for large data sets while providing the enterprise-class performance and always-on availability that customers demand.

"Working with Aster Data will enable enterprise customers and Federal government agencies to quickly and flexibly deploy and scale advanced analytics on Terremark's Enterprise Cloud," said Marvin Wheeler, Chief Strategy Officer of Terremark. "The ability to perform rapid, rich analytics on data is high on customers' wish lists, but many customers lack the right data platform and expertise needed to deploy advanced analytics and data-driven applications with the speed and scalability to meet their growing business needs. This joint initiative with Aster Data will enable customers to quickly and flexibly deploy and scale a data warehouse optimized for advanced analytics on Terremark's Enterprise Cloud infrastructure."

Terremark's Enterprise Cloud, and its proven expertise in providing highly reliable IT infrastructure services, provides customers with the scale, performance, and security they need to deploy advanced analytics and other big data applications. Customers requiring a dedicated environment for maximum performance and isolation for their analytic processing can take advantage of Terremark's managed hosting option or they can leverage Terremark's pooled infrastructure if they require greater flexibility.

"Terremark has built a highly sophisticated cloud infrastructure that is capable of scaling to meet the most demanding enterprise requirements," said Tasso Argyros, CTO and co-founder of Aster Data. "Our collaboration with Terremark provides customers the power of Aster Data's massively parallel data-application server with in-database MapReduce and advanced in-database analytics on an enterprise cloud infrastructure. This combination enables customers to focus on solving business problems with analytics rather than being consumed by the processing and infrastructure challenges of traditional architectures."

Aster Data is the first massively parallel data warehouse architecture that allows analytic applications to be fully embedded inside the system, allowing advanced data analysis on terabytes to petabytes of data. This advanced in-database analytics breakthrough, coupled with Aster Data's innovations in data warehouse capabilities such as dynamic mixed workload management, one-click scaling, online backup, and data compression, has accelerated demand for Aster Data's solution across organizations struggling with managing and analyzing vast amounts of data. Aster Data also provides the only solution that offers the analytical power of in-database MapReduce combined with the familiarity of SQL to make it easy to leverage the powerful MapReduce framework for faster and more scalable analytics. Aster Data's customers span financial services, retail, telecommunications, government agencies, and Internet companies who use Aster Data's nCluster solution for their advanced analytic applications on big data.
