According to International Data Corporation (IDC), 2.5 quintillion bytes of data are created every day—so much that 90 percent of the data in the world today has been created in the last two years alone. With 40 percent growth in global data generated per year versus 5 percent growth in IT spending, business enterprises are experiencing an increased need for big data management and smart infrastructure creation.
MetaScale’s services include building and configuring the Hadoop cluster; operating, managing and monitoring the cluster; integrating with other data management technologies; running data-cleansing and other data management projects; writing and developing MapReduce applications; and custom solution design and system integration.

With an emphasis on data management infrastructure and associated services, MetaScale was developed over the past two years and expects to leverage its Hadoop expertise to partner with analytics tools and service providers, as well as system integrators that lack Hadoop-based infrastructure capabilities.
