GoGrid continues to bet on big data, and on Monday announced two new partnerships with Clustrix and Couchbase to give customers simple ways to evaluate and run their applications in the cloud.
GoGrid says its latest partnerships will expand its Open Data Services (ODS) ecosystem, and build on its existing partnerships with Basho, DataStax, Hortonworks and MongoDB.
The ODS platform supports leading big data technologies, and through its 1-Button Deploy orchestration process, helps enterprises quickly get a solution that includes a development or production big data cluster with the required infrastructure. GoGrid launched its 1-Button Deploy feature in February to simplify the process of moving big data applications from trial to full-scale production.
“We’re excited to see the Open Data Services movement continue to gain momentum as more partners make their solutions easily available on the best infrastructure for Big Data,” GoGrid CEO John Keagy said. “Our initial 1-Button Deploy solutions have been a fantastic success for GoGrid and our partners, making best-of-breed Big Data technologies available without the time and expense usually associated with manually deploying these solutions across customers’ infrastructure.”
Big data is becoming a challenge for enterprises, and will require new strategies for management as the volume of data grows. A recent study conducted by IBM found that two-thirds of CMOs believe they will need to invest in new tools and technologies to make the most of big data.
As cloud providers continue to compete on price and features, offering a cloud platform that is designed for big data workloads will certainly help GoGrid differentiate its offering and target enterprises.
With its latest partnerships, GoGrid will be able to offer automatic deployment for ClustrixDB, Couchbase, DataStax Enterprise Edition, and MongoDB production replica sets.
“GoGrid’s 1-Button Deploy for Couchbase is already in use by businesses like Martini Media, who have opted to leverage on-demand Big Data infrastructure,” Doug Laird, Couchbase CMO said. “We are thrilled to formally announce this partnership so more companies can benefit from quickly deploying Couchbase Server’s unmatched NoSQL performance on GoGrid’s cloud designed for Big Data.”
In 2012, GoGrid launched its GoGrid Big Data Solution, a hybrid cloud-based infrastructure which included pre-configured hardware to match requirements for running Clouderaâ€™s distribution of Hadoop.
