RainStor Named to Inaugural CRN Big Data 100 List

RainStor's Big Data Database Technology, Used Today by the World's Largest Banks and Telcos, Reduces Data Footprints by up to 40x and Storage Costs by as Much as 90%

SAN FRANCISCO, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 04/22/13 -- RainStor has been recognized by a top technology publication for its success helping the world's largest companies reduce Big Data storage costs. UBM Tech Channel's CRN published its inaugural Big Data 100 list today, including RainStor and other innovators whose products and services have significantly enhanced Big Data management and analysis.

RainStor is a pioneer in the field of Big Data, known for its patented compression technology, which greatly reduces the storage footprint and therefore costs, so customers can easily meet future growth. Its product, developed to address Big Data by storing everything once and never repeating anything enables the most efficient scale to store, manage and analyze extreme data volumes in the most cost effective way. RainStor guarantees 90% savings in data storage costs and customers typically see compression rates of 20-40X. Customers include many of the world's largest banks, telecommunication providers and government agencies. These enterprises benefit from both data storage reduction and fast query access using standard SQL, BI Tools, Hive, MapReduce and Pig when running natively on Hadoop.

"The 2013 Big Data 100 list recognizes vendors that have shown a dedication to the innovation and advancement of today's Big Data services, and have evolved to meet the needs of today's business leaders," said Kelley Damore, Senior Vice President and Editorial Director, CRN. "Companies need technologies that not only help them process and manage all that data, but also offer market insights. The Big Data 100 vendors set themselves apart with the cutting edge products and services that provide significant growth opportunities for solution providers to build their business and effectively compete in today's information economy."

"Data storage costs are outpacing enterprise data growth rates," said Deirdre Mahon, VP Marketing at RainStor. "We typically see a bank's data growth as high as 70% annually, which is not sustainable with current IT budgets. RainStor's technology vastly reduces storage costs as a barrier to success in Big Data projects and speeds up analysis so customers get insights faster. We are honored to have been recognized by CRN Magazine for our role in the Big Data industry."

With more than 30 Kubernetes solutions in the marketplace, it's tempting to think Kubernetes and the vendor ecosystem has solved the problem of operationalizing containers at scale or of automatically managing the elasticity of the underlying infrastructure that these solutions need to be truly scalable. Far from it. There are at least six major pain points that companies experience when they try to deploy and run Kubernetes in their complex environments. In this presentation, the speaker will detail these pain points and explain how cloud can address them.
Discussions of cloud computing have evolved in recent years from a focus on specific types of cloud, to a world of hybrid cloud, and to a world dominated by the APIs that make today's multi-cloud environments and hybrid clouds possible. In this Power Panel at 17th Cloud Expo, moderated by Conference Chair Roger Strukhoff, panelists addressed the importance of customers being able to use the specific technologies they need, through environments and ecosystems that expose their APIs to make true change and transformation possible.
"Space Monkey by Vivent Smart Home is a product that is a distributed cloud-based edge storage network.

We are seeing a major migration of enterprises applications to the cloud. As cloud and business use of real time applications accelerate, legacy networks are no longer able to architecturally support cloud adoption and deliver the performance and security required by highly distributed enterprises. These outdated solutions have become more costly and complicated to implement, install, manage, and maintain.SD-WAN offers unlimited capabilities for accessing the benefits of the cloud and Internet. SD-WAN helps enterprises to take advantage of the exploding landscape of cloud applications and services, due to its unique capability to support all things cloud related.
