In an effort to help organizations glean the most insight from their data, cloud infrastructure and hosted IT solutions provider Savvis has introduced a suite of services known as Savvis Big Data Solutions.
Businesses have the opportunity to collect data like never before, but new approaches to technology and processes are required to collect, store, process and access it – and ultimately use it to drive better business operations and decisions.
According to the Tuesday announcement, Savvis Big Data Solutions is designed to give enterprises and government organisations access to the compute, storage and high-bandwidth network capabilities required for analytics applications. The suite includes Savvis’ managed services for the Cloudera and MapR distributions of Apache Hadoop, including configuration, monitoring, upgrades and security.
Earlier in October, Savvis introduced its expanded solutions portfolio for powering big data, business applications, content management and e-commerce platforms.
As GigaOm’s Barb Darrow notes, other IaaS clouds provide capabilities for Hadoop-based big data applications including Microsoft, Joyent, and Amazon Web Service, but Savvis has planning and implementation consulting that will be crucial for many businesses to setup a big data solution.
