PALO ALTO, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 06/03/14 -- Continuuity, creator of the industry's first Big Data Application Server for Apache Hadoop, and AT&T Labs today announced plans to release into open source a disruptive new technology that will provide an integrated, high-quality, and consistent streaming analytics capability. Initially code-named jetStream, it will be made available to the market via open source in the third quarter of 2014.
jetStream will offer a simple, efficient and cost-effective way for businesses, OEMs/ISVs, system integrators, service providers, and developers to create a diverse range of big data analytics and streaming applications that address a broad set of business use cases such as, network intrusion detection and analytics, real-time analysis for spam filtering, social media market analysis, location analytics, and real-time recommendation engines that match relevant content to the right users at the right time.
"Continuuity's mission is to help enterprises to make their businesses truly data-driven. Given the wealth of data being consumed and processed, the ability to make informed, real-time decisions with data is critical," said Jonathan Gray, Founder & CEO of Continuuity. "Our collaboration with AT&T to open source jetStream is consistent with our vision of becoming the de facto platform for easily building applications powered by data and operated at scale."
To create jetStream, Continuuity joined forces with AT&T Labs to integrate Continuuity BigFlow, a distributed framework for building durable high throughput data processing applications, with AT&T's streaming analytics tool -- an extremely fast, low-latency streaming analytics database originally built out of the necessity for managing its network at scale.
jetStream brings together the complementary functionality of BigFlow and AT&T's streaming analytics tool to create a unified real-time framework that supports in-memory stream processing and model-based event processing with direct integration for a variety of data systems including Apache HBase and HDFS. By combining AT&T low-latency and declarative language support with BigFlow durable, high throughput computing capabilities and procedural language support, jetStream provides developers with a disruptive new way to take in and store vast quantities of data, build massively scalable applications, and update applications in real-time as new data is ingested. Specifically, developers will be able to do the following:
- Direct integration of real-time data feeds and processing applications with Hadoop and HBase and utilization of YARN for deployment and resource management
- Framework-level correctness, fault tolerance guarantees, and application logic scalability that reduces friction, errors, and bugs during development
- A transaction engine that provides delivery, isolation and consistency guarantees that enable exactly-once processing semantics
- Scalability without increased operational cost of building and maintaining applications
"From financial services to global network management, there are industries with a need to conduct real-time business; this requires access to a real-time streaming analytics technology that also provides consistency, speed and scalability," said Christopher W. Rice, Vice President of Advanced Technologies at AT&T Labs. "We believe that making this technology available in the market will advance the industry, broaden the supplier base, and lower the cost of such technology. Putting this into open-source makes available the required tools for developing data-intensive, complex applications accessible to a broader base of developers across businesses and partners of all sizes."
