By CIOReview | Thursday, March 31, 2016

SAN JOSE, CA: Robin Systems recently partnered with Zettaset, to provide organizations with an extensive and highly secure container-based solution for critical Big Data applications. Robin’s Application-Defined Data Center software is signing into a new era in data center evolution. The company’s container-based, application-aware, compute and storage platform releases applications from storage boundaries, VMs, and servers. The Robin software converts commodity hardware into a storage, compute, and data continuum such that multiple applications can be deployed per machine to ensure best possible hardware utilization. It also ensures multi-tenant harmony and complete performance isolation for each application. Robin facilitates seamless application mobility across clouds and machines by leveraging lightweight and portable container-based application packaging technology. Robin is the only containerization platform that works with all types of enterprise applications, including performance-sensitive databases and Big Data clusters.

With the help of Robin's Virtual Data Lake capability organizations can combine data across multiple HDFS clusters and make it available to applications in a cohesive manner, ultimately aiding in democratizing data access and eliminating delays in provisioning or copying data. Using Zettaset data encryption and governance capability along with Robin Virtual Data Lake, organizations can ensure secure sharing of data across the enterprise, empower business users, and cut costs by eliminating data duplication.

Premal Buch, chief executive officer of Robin Systems says "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". "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."

With rapid increase in the usage of cloud in key markets, internal managed systems are outshining. But among all the excitement about the potential of Big Data is gone unseen which give birth to security and privacy challenges that threaten to slow this momentum. When cloud computing adoption has progressed at an extraordinary rate, data security is catching up fast.

Jim Vogt, Zettaset CEO says "As Hadoop users migrate from pilot to production and move into larger-scale infrastructures, security and privacy issues are suddenly caught in the spotlight,". "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."
