Xyratex And Pentaho Partner To Unlock Big Value From Big Data





HAVANT, United Kingdom, Feb. 7, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Xyratex Ltd (Nasdaq: XRTX), a leading provider of data storage technology, today announced that it has partnered with Pentaho Corporation, which delivers big data and predictive analytic solutions from one integrated platform, to develop the industry's first fully integrated Big Data analytics and scalable storage solutions. The combined offerings, which will be released later this year, will help organizations decrease the amount of hardware and software required to complete major data analysis projects – and unlock the limitless potential of Big Data while delivering lower total cost of ownership (TCO) to end users.

"The combination of Xyratex and Pentaho will for the first time give users the ability to manage their vast and growing data challenges on one integrated platform," said Eddie White, executive vice president of business development at Pentaho Corporation. "Large data silos, limited to no access for key users and the complexity and cost of buying separate stand-alone products to manage data have undermined users' abilities to derive value from Big Data. With our joint appliances, users will be able to leverage the power and scale of Hadoop, the incredible performance of the Xyratex ClusterStor™ data storage family and Pentaho's Business Analytics platform to significantly reduce time to value and realize optimal business value from their data at the lowest possible cost." 

"This tight integration of the analytics engine and the data storage into the same solution will remove performance bottlenecks, reduce deployment complexity, simplify management and ease the scaling of an organization's big data infrastructure, enabling our customers to garner valuable insights into their business sooner," said Ken Claffey, senior vice president of the ClusterStor business at Xyratex. "Today, in collaboration with our partners, we're helping end users achieve best-in-class performance, reliability and scalability – including implementing the fastest data storage system in the world. We're confident that the combined power of our ClusterStor data storage with Pentaho's leading analytics will re-define what's possible with Big Data."

Pentaho Business Analytics, which includes the industry's first instant Big Data discovery application, unifies data integration and business analytics capabilities into a single modern, highly-embeddable platform. Comprehensive research carried out by leading analyst firms found Pentaho Business Analytics to excel in TCO, return on investment (ROI), robust functionality, agility and overall performance for Big Data, OEM and enterprise users.
