Today, I am finally able to talk about a really cool company, that we’ve been working with to bolster CSC “Big Data” Solutions in the marketplace. One of the first valuable useful use-cases is to enable big-fast data clouds to be automagically built; In effect, to build a data
lake haystack “as a Service”:
“without a haystack, there is no needle to find”…
And, to enable our customers to quickly “Self”-provision, attach, stream, evaluate, store, analyze their emerging big data workloads.
Storing the data in the cloud [via Apache Hadoop], developing insights from the stored data, and enabling those insights to become actionable through promotion into the streaming ingest services [via Storm / Kafka].
Welcome Infochimps: Jim, Joe, Flip, Dhruv, Adam and the rest of the Austin team. I have to say that this is an amazingly cool company, that I believe generates massive synergies with CSC’s vertical industry knowledge, existing Big Data offers, and with other key R&D initiatives that we have going on including our Cloud 2.0 services / Internet of Things work. Adding some Chimp magic, some “open” magic sauce including: WuKong (an open Ruby streaming in Hadoop), IronFan (an open orchestration project for provisioning big data services on clouds), and Configliere (an open configuration project that makes project/module configuration more secure and more functional). Their proven ability to stand up big data clusters on clouds, manage them with high availability and establishes a key link in the overall cloud and big data lineup for CSC.
This is going to be fun!
