RESEARCH TRIANGLE PARK, N.C.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Syncfusion, Inc., has announced a new offer for members of Microsoft Visual Studio Dev Essentials. Members of the program can receive the Syncfusion Big Data Platform and Dashboard Platform at no cost for one year. The one-year subscription includes full support and access to all updates made to the suite.
The offer is available starting June 21, 2017, and will be available to program members for six months.
“With access to both platforms, Dev Essentials members can store and manage massive amounts of data on commodity hardware with our Big Data Platform, and then visualize and share that data using our Dashboard Platform to create charts, gauges, and maps,” said Daniel Jebaraj, Syncfusion vice president. “Our hope is to jump-start big data projects and initiatives that may have been put on the back burner due to lack of resources or budget. By leveraging these platforms, developers will be able to realize the value of managing big data projects that may have been cost-prohibitive in the past.”
The Syncfusion Big Data Platform is a complete Apache Hadoop production environment designed exclusively for Windows. With it, developers can easily create multiple production Apache Hadoop clusters, work with Apache Spark, and deploy to Microsoft Azure.
The Syncfusion Dashboard Platform is a framework for creating dashboards based on a variety of data sources using a single drag-and-drop designer. It can connect to the Big Data Platform to analyze data, embed dashboards in applications, and manage and share dashboards through a web-based interface.
By working in tandem, the Syncfusion Big Data Platform and Dashboard Platform are uniquely optimized to scale across a cluster. Together, they can tackle any data processing need.
“On top of seamless deployment to Microsoft Azure, these platforms also allow developers to effectively manage resources in Azure and deploy dashboards as secure Azure web applications, providing needed control and scalability,” said Shawn Nandi, senior director, cloud app development and data product marketing for Microsoft Corp.
Developers who want to take advantage of this offer must enroll in the Microsoft Visual Studio Dev Essentials program. Information about the program can be found at visualstudio.com/dev-essentials.
