Altiscale was founded in March 2012 by Yahoo, Google, and LinkedIn engineers who have run some of the largest Hadoop clusters in the world. They realized that to stay competitive, more and more companies will need to leverage the power of Hadoop, but can’t afford to be distracted from their core business to operate the infrastructure and the platform itself.
That’s why they introduced the Altiscale Data Cloud. They buy the hardware, manage and maintain the platform, keep Hadoop updated, and worry about the hundreds of other issues that make Hadoop so difficult to run well. They even monitor your jobs and let you know if they have problems. Discover insights faster and leave the Hadoop headaches to them.
