Zettaset and Hyve Solutions Build First Fully Integrated Enterprise OS Hadoop Solution

Plug-and-Play Solution Enables Enterprises to Easily Manage Big Data without Need for Large IT Staff

MOUNTAIN VIEW & FREMONT, Calif.--()--Zettaset and Hyve Solutions, a division of SYNNEX Corporation (NYSE: SNX), today announced a collaboration that creates the first deployment of Hadoop on an enterprise-grade platform and operating system. The collaboration gives users the benefits of Zettaset’s comprehensive Hadoop big data management platform called Zettaset Orchestrator running on Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.2, and offers the solution exclusively through Hyve Solutions, a leader in purpose-built datacenter servers.

“Businesses and organizations that want to adopt Hadoop as an enterprise-grade solution which manages the demands of extremely large amounts of data need to run it on enterprise hardware with an enterprise operating system,” said Roger Egan, vice president, North America Channel Sales & Development at Red Hat. “Our Red Hat Enterprise Linux operating system offers a robust platform for Zettaset to leverage in combination with its Orchestrator solution to help simplify big data management for enterprises.”

Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.2 is the latest version of Red Hat’s flagship Linux operating platform and is a leading enterprise distribution of Linux on the market. Red Hat’s distribution collaboration with SYNNEX, Hyve Solutions’ parent company, provides an optimized hardware solution for the enterprise through its Open Source Channel Alliance. By combining the leading enterprise operating system with high-quality enterprise hardware and premium Hadoop management system, the Zettaset solution integrated by Hyve Solutions enables enterprises to manage their big data needs with an easy-to-use appliance that leverages the compelling benefits of Red Hat’s operating system technology.

Zettaset’s Orchestrator open source Hadoop platform makes deploying Hadoop easier and less labor intensive. Companies that use the platform don’t have to rely on an entire stable of IT experts to manage their big data needs. It is also one of the first self-healing data management environments within Hadoop that identifies potential system failures and corrects them automatically. Several of Zettaset’s enterprise Hadoop components are not found in free open-source versions of Hadoop, and automatically maintain the health and welfare of the user’s cluster, making administration of a Hadoop cluster seamless.

“In the Hadoop community, there are a lot of wasted resources that go into figuring out what is the best configuration of hardware, operating system and Hadoop distribution for the best use case for the enterprise. There are a lot of wasted cycles, a lot of headaches and a lot of pain,” said Brian Christian CTO for Zettaset. “This is the only turnkey solution on the market that contains a trusted hardware, OS and Hadoop solution that is reputable, stable and standardized – it takes the guesswork out of everything.”

“Hyve Solutions is excited about integrating Zettaset Orchestrator into its enterprise-class Hadoop appliance bigD series8. Zettaset's software stack enables Hyve Solutions to offer its Big Data customers a production-ready Hadoop cluster that is powerful, easy to deploy and manage. Our large datacenter customers expect enterprise features and performance from our hardware solutions. Zettaset fills the holes that currently exist in open source Hadoop, solving the problem,” said Steve Ichinaga, Senior Vice President and General Manager, Hyve Solutions.
