Gazzang Named “Cool Vendor in Big Data” by Gartner

Gazzang, the big data and cloud security experts, today announced that it has been named a 2014 “Cool Vendor in Big Data” by Gartner, Inc1. Gazzang is one of four innovative vendors cited in the report and the only security vendor named. Gartner subscribers can download the full report at this link.

The enterprise adoption of new big data platforms like Hadoop, MongoDB and Cassandra is driving greater demand for massively scalable, high-performance security solutions that protect data at rest and help meet compliance. Gazzang’s encryption and key management solutions are purpose built for these new data structures, with fast and easy deployment and the ability to scale as organizations grow their big data environments and transition projects from development into production.

“Gazzang allows organizations to enjoy all the performance benefits of big data, while ensuring sensitive information -- including medical records, payment card data, corporate intellectual property and personally identifiable information -- remains secure and confidential,” said Larry Warnock, CEO of Gazzang. “We’re thrilled to be named a Cool Vendor in Big Data by Gartner, a recognition that confirms not only our approach, but the importance of encryption and key management to the overall success of big data projects.”

Adding public cloud resources to an existing application can be a daunting process. The tools that you currently use to manage the software and hardware outside the cloud aren’t always the best tools to efficiently grow into the cloud. All of the major configuration management tools have cloud orchestration plugins that can be leveraged, but there are also cloud-native tools that can dramatically improve the efficiency of managing your application lifecycle. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Alex Lovell-Troy, Director of Solutions Engineering at Pythian, presented a roadmap that can be leveraged by any organization to plan, analyze, evaluate, and execute on moving from configuration management tools to cloud orchestration tools. He also addressed the three major cloud vendors as well as some tools that will work with any cloud.

With more than 30 Kubernetes solutions in the marketplace, it's tempting to think Kubernetes and the vendor ecosystem has solved the problem of operationalizing containers at scale or of automatically managing the elasticity of the underlying infrastructure that these solutions need to be truly scalable. Far from it. There are at least six major pain points that companies experience when they try to deploy and run Kubernetes in their complex environments. In this presentation, the speaker will detail these pain points and explain how cloud can address them.
Containers and Kubernetes allow for code portability across on-premise VMs, bare metal, or multiple cloud provider environments. Yet, despite this portability promise, developers may include configuration and application definitions that constrain or even eliminate application portability. In this session we'll describe best practices for "configuration as code" in a Kubernetes environment. We will demonstrate how a properly constructed containerized app can be deployed to both Amazon and Azure using the Kublr platform, and how Kubernetes objects, such as persistent volumes, ingress rules, and services, can be used to abstract from the infrastructure.
