Through the partnership, the Altiscale Data Cloud – Altiscale's HaaS solution – is now available in Carpathia's network of data centers. Carpathia's customers now have a turnkey Hadoop solution that matches the level of management, support, and reliability that Carpathia brings to the rest of their infrastructure. In addition, the companies have aligned on-boarding and support processes to streamline the joint customer experience.

Together, Carpathia and Altiscale deliver a fully managed service that is optimized for Hadoop, providing customers with always-on access to their data, proactive monitoring of jobs, and predictable monthly pricing. Engineered to meet stringent federal requirements, the HaaS solution processes data multiple times faster than commodity-built Hadoop platforms and ensures mission-critical availability to meet the performance and compliance demands of any commercial or government organization.

"Hadoop is becoming critical for businesses as they seek to make sense of unstructured data, accelerate queries on massive datasets, uncover hidden trends, and enhance insights for predictive modeling," said Raymie Stata, CEO, Altiscale. "The Carpathia partnership and the Altiscale Data Cloud frees customers from the infrastructural and operational burdens of Hadoop, allowing them to quickly scale and pay only for the Hadoop resources they use."

"Carpathia is the only cloud operator purpose-built to deliver on the complex and compliant managed hosting and cloud requirements of organizations looking to leverage Hadoop," said Peter Weber, CEO, Carpathia. "Coupled with Altiscale's team of experienced veterans from Yahoo! who have operated some of the largest Hadoop clusters in the world, we have a winning solution to help organizations tackle their most formidable 'big data' challenges."
