Unlike other solutions, we run Apache™ Hadoop® for you. We not only deploy Hadoop, we monitor, manage, fix, and update it for you. Then we take it a step further: We monitor your jobs, notify you when something’s wrong with them, and can help with tuning.
The Altiscale Data Cloud is the first cloud service purpose-built to run Hadoop. We offer an on-demand, elastic solution on a pay-as-you-go basis. By vertically integrating from the Hadoop layer to the metal, we ensure a faster, more reliable service.
Altiscale’s offering is ideally suited for today’s data science needs. Features for data science include permanent HDFS volumes, access to the latest tools, resource sharing without conflict, job-level monitoring and support, and pricing plans that eliminate unpleasant surprises.
“With Altiscale, we’re getting 4 to 5 times the performance compared to other cloud solutions, with zero startup time and a predictable budget that doesn’t break the bank.”
Satya Ramachandran, VP, MarketShare
