Blue Data is one of the leading software platform providers of BDaas(Big data as a service). Blue data has now made it official that BlueData EPIC Software is on AWS, which is now generally available. This software delivers the best flexibility and preferences for Big Data environments, cost controls for multi-tenant deployments, enterprise-class security, and it also has the ability to tap into both on-premises and Amazon S3 storage.
BlueData is the first and only Big Data that is a service platform which has great support for on-premises and cloud environments, and they are putting their efforts to take up the maximum advantage of embedding and using fully managed Docker containers for portability on any of the infrastructure. This software also provides the self-service user experience which remains same whether it is running in the corporate data center or the public cloud and the application image remain same too for Docker, Spark, and many other Big data tools which support portability for on-premises and cloud deployments. The BlueData EPIC on AWS is now available generally. This software has the ability to support different cloud platforms like Google cloud platform, Microsoft Azure, and many other public cloud services in the coming future.
The best part of the BlueData is that it is the only BDaaS solution where developers, data scientists, and Analysts are allowed to use the tools and work on their choice of data frameworks, which includes frameworks like Hortonworks, Hadoop distributions from Cloudera, Spark standalone and MapR. It also includes many other frameworks like Kafka and Cassandra; Python and R libraries; Jupyter and Zeppelin notebooks and also other analytics tools. The end customers can have the same experience of flexibility for using the Big Data applications of their choice, which are more consistent and repeatable and agile deployment process for on-premises and AWS environments.
Some of the key benefits of BlueData on AWS are:
Simplifies user experience
Greater agility and flexibility
Reduced AWS costs
Faster time to insights
Improved data governance
The main advantage of the Blue Data on AWS is that it is an easy-to-use platform that allows teams to collaborate and run on different Big data frameworks and tools on Amazon Web Services with all your control and security you require. Using BlueData, the productivity of the developers can be improved, Development life cycles can be reduced and can also control AWS costs. This software customers can use their own Big Data environments for a variety of different data science and analytics use cases within less time consumption. They can also work on simple or complicated applications without any DevOps or AWS related skills.
Tony Baer, principal analyst for Big Data at Ovum stated: “More and more enterprises are looking at deploying Hadoop and Spark in the public cloud". Some of the existing choices on Amazon and other clouds, but most of the data sciences teams prefer customized services for their use cases and special tools of their choice. So Blue Data is trying to overcome this requirement, where the team can be enabled to develop fit-for-purpose environments for big data and Amazon cloud.
The Company’s first attempt of BlueData EPIC on AWS will be available now in public cloud, but it has been providing BDaaS on-premises deployment model since it is launched. Additional to Amazon, BlueData has collaborated with leading IT giants which have huge infrastructures like DELL, CISCO, EMC2, INTEL, HPE and NUTANIX for on-premises Big Data deployments. It is also adding other public cloud services in the coming days.
