Altiscale's infrastructure is faster, more reliable, easier to use, and more affordable than alternatives.
Altiscale’s knowledgeable and responsive team allowed us to rapidly innovate and get to market faster with new products and services.
New product launches. Handling incidents. Keeping up with growth. These should be the priorities of your operations team. Operating Hadoop is a complex, time-consuming distraction. The Altiscale team has managed 40,000 nodes of Hadoop supporting critical revenue streams. Let Altiscale handle Hadoop operations for you, freeing your scarce talent to add value where it matters most.
Do you retain all of your historical data? Do your data scientists have the compute capacity to explore that data? When Hadoop jobs are run on weekends, do you have a team standing by ready to help? Data science is critical for business growth, but you can't unlock that growth if your team is handicapped. Altiscale was founded with the specific aim of providing a productive, rewarding environment for data scientists.
If you buy your own Hadoop clusters, then you have a cluster that’s idle most of the time, yet too small for your largest jobs. If you pay by the minute, you struggle to optimize your costs — and still suffer with unpleasant surprises at the end of the month. At Altiscale, we offer great pricing in a model designed to fit the unique characteristics of Hadoop.
