PALO ALTO, CA--(Marketwired - May 3, 2013) - Continuuity, the industry's first Big Data application fabric, today announced it has been named to UBM Tech Channel's CRN 2013 Big Data 100 list. The award recognizes companies innovating in Big Data technology and covers three categories: business analytics, data management and infrastructure and services. Continuuity's AppFabric was honored as a revolutionary new solution in Big Data infrastructure and services.
Named to the CRN Big Data 100 list, the Continuuity AppFabric is an application runtime and data platform that provides the industry's first scale-out application server for Hadoop and HBase. Delivered as a Platform as a Service (PaaS), the Continuuity AppFabric sits above open source Hadoop components and enables developers to quickly and easily deploy Big Data applications either to a single tenant, hosted virtual private cloud or behind the firewall on existing Hadoop/HBase clusters. Continuuity enables Java developers to become Big Data developers by offering abstracted APIs and reusable components as part of its Developer Suite SDK. With powerful DevOps tools and an intuitive UI, the Continuuity Developer Suite allows programmers to create and test applications locally before pushing them to the cloud with a single click, deploying Big Data applications that are production-ready and easily scalable.
"The 2013 Big Data 100 list recognizes vendors that have shown a dedication to the innovation and advancement of today's Big Data services, and have evolved to meet the needs of today's business leaders," said Kelley Damore, senior vice president and editorial director, CRN. "Companies need technologies that not only help them process and manage all that data, but also offer market insights. The Big Data 100 vendors set themselves apart with the cutting edge products and services that provide significant growth opportunities for solution providers to build their business and effectively compete in today's information economy."
"Big Data is one of the greatest movements in computing today, and we are honored to be recognized as one of the players revolutionizing the industry," said Todd Papaioannou, co-founder and CEO at Continuuity. "Developers will increasingly need to create Big Data applications, but building apps on and managing Hadoop environments is inherently difficult and expensive. Continuuity's cloud-based AppFabric solves these challenges and is poised to unleash a wave of Big Data app development by empowering all developers to quickly and easily build, deploy, scale and manage Big Data apps."
Selected by CRN's editorial staff, the 2013 Big Data 100 list is featured in the April issue of CRN Magazine and will be featured online at www.crn.com.
