Zettaset, Simba Partner to Streamline Big Data Connectivity to Analytics Applications

Zettaset, the company in secure Big Data management, signed a strategic technology partnership with Simba (News - Alert) Technologies, the recognized leader in standards-based data access and analytics solutions for both relational and multi-dimensional data sources.

The new partnership addresses compatibility and security issues for enterprises linking analytics and BI applications to Hadoop distributions and databases.

"Simba solutions provide 'The On Ramp to Big Data,'" stated Simba Technologies CEO Amyn Rajan. "We look forward to working with Zettaset to provide our joint Fortune 1000 enterprise customers with standardized, secure, and highly-available Hadoop connectivity solutions to market-leading analytics and business intelligence applications."

Simba Technologies co-developed Open Database Connectivity (ODBC) with Microsoft (News - Alert) in 1992, and was the first to deliver ODBC and Java Database Connectivity (JDBC) drivers for Hadoop/Hive Big Data sources. The company’s Zettaset Orchestrator is the industry's first fully-integrated, automated solution for Hadoop security and data management.

Zettaset Orchestrator management platform allows enterprise users to access and analyze Big Data sources in Hadoop, using the BI / Analytics application of their choice.

"Zettaset continues to lead the Big Data security initiative for organizations that are mining Hadoop for business intelligence with this inclusion of Simba's enterprise class ODBC and JDBC drivers in our Orchestrator management application," said Jim Vogt, CEO of Zettaset. "Now Cloudera and Hortonworks customers can use Orchestrator to automate connectivity and ensure compatibility between their Hadoop clusters and upstream analytics applications, as well as fortify security and automate routine management."

Jim Vogt, CEO of Zettaset said in a statement “Now Cloudera and Hortonworks customers can use Orchestrator to automate connectivity and ensure compatibility between their Hadoop clusters and upstream analytics applications, as well as fortify security and automate routine management."

Users of the Zettaset Orchestrator management application/add-on running on Cloudera or Hortonworks can directly access and analyze Big Data sources in Hadoop, using the BI / Analytics application of their choice.
