Exar Corporation Signs Technology Partnership With Hortonworks

FREMONT, Calif., Sept. 10, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Exar Corporation (NYSE: EXAR), a leading supplier of high performance analog mixed-signal components and data management solutions, today announced a technology partnership with Hortonworks, a leading commercial vendor promoting the innovation, development, and support of Apache Hadoop. As part of the agreement, Exar Corporation will become a member of the Hortonworks Technology Partner Program, which was formed to accelerate the growth of the Apache Hadoop ecosystem through technology collaboration, technical support and joint testing.

"Exar has built a name for itself in hardware-accelerated compression for Big Data, so it's a natural progression to join the Hadoop ecosystem through a leader such as Hortonworks," said Jiebing Wang, vice president of Data Management at Exar Corporation.  "Our shared purpose is to help our customers obtain business value from their data quickly and easily."

Exar currently sells its market-leading, hardware-accelerated compression cards to large data management OEMs.  By working with Hortonworks, Exar can ensure the latest support for Apache Hadoop enabling OEMs to offer customers hardware-accelerated solutions for their Hadoop deployments.

"Storage requirements and network bandwidth are key factors in the distributed processing of large data sets across multiple computer platforms," said Mitch Ferguson, vice president of business development at Hortonworks. "Exar joins our growing ecosystem with great experience in handling large amounts of data and optimizing system efficiency through its data compression technology.  Now as part of our partner program we can work together to ensure Apache Hadoop is supported at all levels of the ecosystem."

Hortonworks develops, distributes and supports the only 100% Open Source distribution of Apache Hadoop explicitly architected, built and tested for enterprise grade deployments. For more information, visit www.hortonworks.com.
