The hookup with Cisco involves integration of DataTorrent RTS, which is a unified platform for stream and batch processing on Hadoop, with Cisco’s Application Centric Infrastructure (ACI) through the Application Policy Infrastructure Controller (APIC).
Cisco and DataTorrent say that by blending their respective technologies, they will provide a unified management architecture for enterprises to securely process large streams of data while managing their applications and network resources more efficiently.
Through a unified batch and stream process, DataTorrent RTS aids organizations in reducing their time-to-market and development costs while also cutting down operational expenses for Big Data applications.
Cisco’s SDN-based ACI integrates physical and virtual environments under one policy model across networks, servers, storage, services and security. ACI’s policy-based automation provides greater visibility into networks while also automating IT duties.
Together, Cisco and DataTorrent will provide a unified fabric approach for managing data and networks. The joint offering, which will be available sometime in the fourth quarter, will also establish the creation, repository, and enforcement point for Cisco ACI application policies for Big Data applications.
Azure HDInsight is a cloud-based Hadoop distribution system that handles large amounts of data, from terabytes to petabytes, on demand. With DataTorrent RTS, Azure HDInsight customers now have access to enterprise-level fault-tolerance, increased performance, and scalability for unified stream and batch processing.
DataTorrent RTS will be available on the Azure Marketplace starting in October.
