MetaScale plans to leverage its expertise in Hadoop, a framework that allows for the distributed processing of large data sets across clusters of computers, with Kognitio’s ability to analyze data in-memory in a fraction of the time required by conventional databases to provide Big Data analytics to companies faster, more cost effectively and easier than ever before.
Delivered via private cloud or on-premises implementations, MetaScale said its Big Data as a Service will benefit companies across key vertical markets including financial services, media, healthcare, energy, telecommunications, and more. Companies working with MetaScale will be able to obtain greater insight from their data, or replace legacy mainframe or "batch" processing, enabling them to improve their operational efficiency and grow revenue. Even if they already have an enterprise data warehouse, the MetaScale/Kognitio partnership will allow them to rapidly deploy and conduct additional analytic projects, without imposing a greater burden on their existing systems and on a scale they once thought impossible.
