Fremont, CA: Robin Systems, a provider of containerization enterprise software’s based out of San Jose, California, and Zettaset, a provider of Big Data security from Mountain View, California, recently announced their decision to form a strategic partnership. This will allow the organizations to offer a scalable, performance-optimized, and highly secure container-based Big Data solutions.

Robin’s unique container-based, application-aware, compute and storage platform helps negate server, VM, and storage limitations from applications. This allows for optimum hardware utilization along with multi-tenant harmony and complete performance isolation for individual applications. Robin renders effortless application mobility across machines and clouds, by leveraging lightweight and portable container-based application packaging technology. Currently, Robin is the single containerization platform that can work all the various types of enterprise applications like performance-sensitive databases and Big Data clusters.

Organizations can now consolidate data over multiple HDFS clusters in order to make it available to applications in a unified mode, thanks to Robin’s Virtual Data Lake capability. Thus, it helps in democratizing data access by eliminating the delays while provisioning or copying data and allows organizations to become more responsive, productive, and data-driven. Data qualifies as a critical enterprise asset, consequently deeming it imperative to ensure security and governance. Utilizing Zettaset’s robust data encryption and governance capabilities with Robin Virtual Data Lake, organizations can ensure secure sharing of data, thereby empowering business users and cutting costs by eliminating data duplication.

“Robin Systems provides enterprises with a high-performance and elastic containerization platform for data-driven mission-critical applications, and together with Zettaset we can now provide those same customers with an exceptionally high level of data protection,” said Premal Buch, chief executive officer of Robin Systems. “The Zettaset Big Data encryption suite is a great match for us because it can easily scale out in distributed computing systems like Hadoop and NoSQL, and performs equally well in VM deployments on premises or in the cloud.”

The rapid growth of cloud means that it could potentially replace internally managed systems across various worldwide markets. Thus, organizations have started adopting clouds at an unparalleled rate and the security and privacy challenges need to be met or else the momentum gathered threatens to fall short.

“As Hadoop users migrate from pilot to production and move into larger-scale infrastructures, security and privacy issues are suddenly caught in the spotlight,” said Jim Vogt, Zettaset CEO. “As a data-centric enterprise security company with deep expertise in Big Data encryption, we bring a higher level of rigor and discipline to data protection that transforms open source environments like Hadoop and other NoSQL into trusted data stores. Our strategic partnership with Robin Systems reaffirms Zettaset’s position as a leader in securing sensitive data across petabyte-scale Big Data stores and applications wherever they reside.”
