BELLEVUE, Wash.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Atigeo™, a compassionate technology company, today announced that the Atigeo xPatterns big data analytics platform has been officially recognized as part of the Databricks “Certified on Spark” program.
Atigeo xPatterns is among the first few certified by Databricks, which was founded by the creators of Spark and dedicated to driving its continued adoption and evolution. This certification demonstrates that xPatterns can deliver big data analytics on nearly any Spark distribution from a wide range of vendors, including existing enterprise Spark deployments.
“At Databricks, we launched the ‘Certified on Spark’ program because we recognize that a critical component of a successful platform is a thriving application ecosystem,” said Arsalan Tavakoli-Shiraji, business development lead at Databricks. “Atigeo’s xPatterns is a terrific example of an offering that builds on Spark’s capabilities to deliver next generation functionality to users and we’re thrilled to announce their certification.”
xPatterns fully integrates with and builds on Spark, a next-generation Big Data processing engine that supports batch, interactive, and streaming workloads at scale. Enterprises are leveraging Spark’s in-memory computing capabilities and full breadth of functionality – interactive SQL queries, streaming data support, machine learning, and graph computation – to unlock the value of their data.
“The performance benefits of Spark make a huge impact for companies with petabytes of data to analyze,” said David Talby, Atigeo’s Senior VP of Engineering. “Bringing the latest technologies, such as Spark, to enterprise customers, and deploying end-to-end big data analytics within days — is a combination of benefits that only Atigeo’s xPatterns can offer.”
To demonstrate the advancements offered through these technologies, Atigeo’s Senior Director of Engineering, Claudiu Barbura, will present xPatterns at the upcoming Spark Summit 2014 in San Francisco.
