ParStream brings established big data analytics platform to the Italian market to help businesses gain competitive advantage
Cologne, Germany & Silicon Valley, Calif - February 25, 2014 - ParStream, provider of the Real-time Database for Big Data Analytics, today announced that ParStream Distribution Italia Srl has been founded according to an exclusive agreement signed with ParStream GmbH headquartered in Germany with offices in Silicon Valley, USA. According to the agreement, ParStream Distribution Italia will promote ParStream's Real-time Database for Big Data Analytics in the Italian market.
ParStream's Real-time Database powers big data analytics, enabling businesses to make better, faster, fact-based decisions by analyzing massive amounts of streaming and stored data. ParStream delivers sub- second query response times on billions of records while continuously importing new data at very high speeds, so businesses can gain immediate insights from their data.
"There are endless opportunities with which big data analytics can be applied," said Michael Hummel, CEO and co-founder of ParStream GmbH. "With the actionable insights gained from big data analytics, businesses can gain competitive advantage by confidently innovating and exploring new business models; optimizing and expanding revenue streams; and reducing infrastructure and operational costs."
ParStream's patented High Performance Compressed Index (HPCI) is the core of the ultra-fast columnar analytic database, built from the ground up to manage both Big Data and Fast Data. ParStream's distributed, massively parallel, shared-nothing architecture is designed to exploit the multi-core architecture of today's processors, servers, and clusters.
Traditional database technology was not designed to manage the data volumes of today. Newer database technologies are meant to address large data volumes, but not all platforms are able to query and analyze data quickly enough to serve the needs of the businesses and customers. With ParStream, there is no need to use cubes, materialized views, projections or any other form of pre-aggregation. ParStream can process new data in all analytical queries while providing full data granularity and full analytical flexibility.
"ParStream Distribution Italia, formed by the merger of professional leaders in the ICT market with the historical Italian and European distributor Strhold, distribution of ICT Reweb Srl, has the ambition to quickly win significant market share in the Italian big data arena," said Filippo Durango, Business Development Manager of ParStream Distribution Italia. "Thanks to a best-of-breed technology, it will be possible to help businesses of all types to manage the huge volumes of data that is generated each minute, allowing them to make better decisions and a rapid return on investment."
ParStream helps businesses gain immediate insights into their data. As the leading provider of real-time databases, ParStream powers big data analytics on the massive amounts of data businesses collect daily. The award-winning, breakthrough technology enables ultra-fast, flexible analytics of stored and streaming data. The market-agnostic ParStream Real-time Database is used worldwide in e-commerce, telecommunications, finance, advertising, retail, mining, and science. Based in Cupertino, Calif. and headquartered in Cologne, Germany, ParStream has been awarded "#1 Big Data Startup" by CIO Magazine, recognized as a "Cool Vendor" in the Advancing Data Management Maturity report by Gartner, and was named "Trend-setting Products in Data of 2014" by Database Trends and Applications.

Between 2005 and 2020, data volumes will grow by a factor of 300 – enough data to stack CDs from the earth to the moon 162 times. This has come to be known as the ‘big data’ phenomenon. Unfortunately, traditional approaches to handling, storing and analyzing data aren’t adequate at this scale: they’re too costly, slow and physically cumbersome to keep up. Fortunately, in response a new breed of technology has emerged that is cheaper, faster and more scalable. Yet, in meeting these new needs they...

The cloud promises new levels of agility and cost-savings for Big Data, data warehousing and analytics. But it’s challenging to understand all the options – from IaaS and PaaS to newer services like HaaS (Hadoop as a Service) and BDaaS (Big Data as a Service). In her session at @BigDataExpo at @ThingsExpo, Hannah Smalltree, a director at Cazena, provided an educational overview of emerging “as-a-service” options for Big Data in the cloud. This is critical background for IT and data professionals...

Fact is, enterprises have significant legacy voice infrastructure that’s costly to replace with pure IP solutions. How can we bring this analog infrastructure into our shiny new cloud applications? There are proven methods to bind both legacy voice applications and traditional PSTN audio into cloud-based applications and services at a carrier scale. Some of the most successful implementations leverage WebRTC, WebSockets, SIP and other open source technologies. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Da...

In his session at 19th Cloud Expo, Claude Remillard, Principal Program Manager in Developer Division at Microsoft, contrasted how his team used config as code and immutable patterns for continuous delivery of microservices and apps to the cloud. He showed how the immutable patterns helps developers do away with most of the complexity of config as code-enabling scenarios such as rollback, zero downtime upgrades with far greater simplicity. He also demoed building immutable pipelines in the cloud ...

Today we can collect lots and lots of performance data. We build beautiful dashboards and even have fancy query languages to access and transform the data. Still performance data is a secret language only a couple of people understand. The more business becomes digital the more stakeholders are interested in this data including how it relates to business. Some of these people have never used a monitoring tool before. They have a question on their mind like “How is my application doing” but no id...

In IT, we sometimes coin terms for things before we know exactly what they are and how they’ll be used. The resulting terms may capture a common set of aspirations and goals – as “cloud” did broadly for on-demand, self-service, and flexible computing. But such a term can also lump together diverse and even competing practices, technologies, and priorities to the point where important distinctions are glossed over and lost.

Predictive analytics tools monitor, report, and troubleshoot in order to make proactive decisions about the health, performance, and utilization of storage. Most enterprises combine cloud and on-premise storage, resulting in blended environments of physical, virtual, cloud, and other platforms, which justifies more sophisticated storage analytics.

All clouds are not equal. To succeed in a DevOps context, organizations should plan to develop/deploy apps across a choice of on-premise and public clouds simultaneously depending on the business needs. This is where the concept of the Lean Cloud comes in - resting on the idea that you often need to relocate your app modules over their life cycles for both innovation and operational efficiency in the cloud. In his session at @DevOpsSummit at19th Cloud Expo, Valentin (Val) Bercovici, CTO of Soli...
