Pepperdata is the Big Data performance company. Leading companies such as Comcast, Philips Wellcentive, and Zillow depend on Pepperdata to manage and improve the performance of Hadoop and Spark. Enterprise customers use Pepperdata products and services to troubleshoot performance problems in production, increase cluster utilization, and enforce policies to support multi-tenancy. Pepperdata products and services work with customer Big Data systems both on-premise and in the cloud.
Pepperdata was founded in 2012 by Sean Suchter and Chad Carson. As the first production users of Hadoop, working alongside the team that invented Hadoop at Yahoo, they realized early on that Hadoop would become very important and set out to build products that would enable users to performance-manage Big Data production systems. Pepperdata has raised $20M from well-regarded venture capital companies and attracted top senior engineering talent from Yahoo, Google, Microsoft, and Netflix. Pepperdata is headquartered in Cupertino, California.
Pepperdata Products and DevOps for Big Data
The Pepperdata product suite brings this critical performance feedback to every phase of the DevOps cycle for Big Data. Pepperdata software collects hundreds of metrics tracking the use of CPU, memory, disk I/O, and network resources by container/task, job, and user on a second-by-second basis. Operators and developers can use this highly granular performance data to troubleshoot and solve performance issues in their applications and clusters overall. Pepperdata software also automatically and dynamically optimizes the usage of cluster resources using machine learning algorithms, enabling administrators to implement policies that guarantee the completion of high-priority jobs while maintaining the cluster at peak performance.
