CUPERTINO, Calif., May 2, 2016Pepperdata, the world’s experts in the performance of distributed systems, announced today that CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company, has named Pepperdata to its 2016 Big Data 100 list. This annual list recognizes the ingenuity of tech suppliers bringing to market innovative solutions for harnessing the increasing volumes of data generated in today’s digital world, raising the bar for data management and challenging established IT practices.

Businesses are constantly grappling with the exploding volume, speed, and variety of information they produce and utilize on a daily basis in order to remain competitive. Solution providers are on a never-ending quest to tame big data with innovative tools, technologies, and services that can convert it into meaningful, usable statistics.

In response to this challenge, the CRN editorial team has identified the IT vendors at the forefront of data management, business analytics and infrastructure technologies and services. The resulting Big Data 100 list is a valuable guide for solution providers seeking out key big data technology suppliers.

Pepperdata was among those recognized for its innovative solution. Pepperdata develops software that governs and guarantees consistent performance of Hadoop clusters to deliver Quality of Service (QoS). Its Adaptive Performance Core™ captures and processes second-by-second performance data to reshape each application’s hardware usage without user intervention. Job performance is enforced based on user-defined priorities and current cluster conditions, eliminating critical contention for hardware and the need for workload isolation. By guaranteeing stable and reliable cluster performance, Pepperdata allows enterprises to realize untapped value from existing distributed infrastructures.

“To effectively harness data is critical for any business. Organizations are faced with managing information streams of unprecedented volume and complexity, and are always in need of more powerful and efficient tools for capturing, storing, organizing, securing, and analyzing data to gain business insights,” said Robert Faletra, CEO, The Channel Company. “We are pleased to present the Big Data 100, a list of vendors whose ingenuity and creative problem-solving are creating effective new ways to help solution providers tackle this mammoth task, challenging the status quo and keeping pace with the rapidly evolving demands of the data management field.”

“Big data use cases are rapidly outpacing the capabilities of existing tools as IT Operations teams are required to support front line production Hadoop applications. Solutions that can provide predictable cluster performance and QoS for Hadoop are now requirements for continued big data innovation,” said Ed Colonna, Vice President of Marketing and Business Development at Pepperdata. “At Pepperdata, we are deeply committed to delivering the only adaptive performance solution to deliver transparency and control over distributed systems and eliminate blind spots in Hadoop environments. We are proud to be featured in CRN’s Big Data 100 and look forward to working with partners to help organizations push the boundaries of big data and Hadoop.”
