Tervela and Vertica, an HP Company, to Extend Big Data Analytics Infrastructure

Joint solution enhances disaster recovery, data replication, and data loading extensibility for enterprise-scale, distributed big-data deployments

BILLERICA, Mass. -- Tervela, the leading data fabric solution provider, and Vertica, an HP Company and leading provider of real-time analytics platforms, today announced they are collaborating to deliver enhanced solutions for distributed big data deployments.

“We are delighted to be partnering with HP. Our joint customers have been demanding tighter integration of big data analytics with big data movement, driven by the market’s thirst for real-time information at massive volumes,” said Eric Schnadig, CEO of Tervela. “The combination of the Vertica and Tervela platforms represents the next generation of Internet-scale infrastructure.”

Tervela’s data fabric is the fastest, most reliable way to move data inside a datacenter or around the world. When paired with the Vertica Analytics Platform for real-time analytics of big data, the joint solution delivers value for a broad range of industries, from established firms like financial services and telecommunications to emerging web, social media, and gaming companies. In particular, this solution provides:

  1. Synchronized Real-Time Analytics: Customers operating multiple data stores can keep these instances synchronized in real-time, even when dealing with massive volumes of data for analytical systems, complex event processing, or other applications.
  2. Reliable, Fast, Affordable Disaster Recovery: Real-time synchronization of data ensures operations can continue in the event of an outage, faster and more reliably than alternative storage and database technologies.
  3. Non-Stop Data Loading For Superior Decision Support: Tervela accelerates the insertion of data into the Vertica platform with guaranteed delivery, buffering, pre-processing, and parallel insertions – meaning more data from more locations can be loaded faster than ever, increasing the time-value of information.

“Big data analytics has changed the way forward-thinking businesses monetize all of their data, allowing them to extract business-critical information from structured, unstructured, and semi-structured data,” said Colin Mahony, Vice President of Products and Business Development at Vertica, an HP Company. “With a joint solution from Vertica and Tervela, customers will have a valuable new toolset for enhancing and extending their real-time big data analytics infrastructure.”
