Appistry Announce CloudIQ Storage Hadoop Edition
Enterprise Cloud Platform provider Appistry have announced a new edition of their CloudIQ Storage product for delivering scalable applications on private, public and hybrid clouds.
Appistry CloudIQ Storage Hadoop Edition is compatibile with the Hadoop Distributed File System (HDFS) and ships with HDFS drivers. This product aims to deploy applications, in the place of HDFS, which is built around a single, non-clusterable metadata repository. Appistry CloudIQ Storage, meanwhile, is built on a decentraliaed architecture, with no centraliased metadata repository.
“Until now Hadoop was limited to non-critical applications. By offering our solution as a drop-in alternative to HDFS, we’re able to support the Hadoop user community, expand the reach of Hadoop into mission-critical applications, and provide previously unseen levels of reliability and performance,” said Kevin Haar, CEO of Appistry.
Appistry CloudIQ Storage Hadoop Edition is currently in private beta with a general release scheduled for Spring 2010. Interested parties can apply now for early access.
