Globalscape Partners with Hortonworks to Help Tackle Big Data
SAN ANTONIO, TX - Apache™ Hadoop® developer, Hortonworks, is partnering with GlobalSCAPE, Inc. (NYSE MKT: GSB), a leading developer of secure information exchange solutions, to provide file transfer solutions for customers embarking on big data and Hadoop projects.
Hadoop is optimized for storing, processing, and analyzing very large sets of unstructured data often referred to as "big data." Hortonworks develops, distributes, and supports the only 100% Open Source distribution of Apache Hadoop. The partnership allows Globalscape to provide clients a seamless transfer of data using our award-winning, Enhanced File Transfer TM (EFT™) 2013 and Hortonworks Data Platform (HDP) powered by Apache Hadoop.
“EFT 2013 provides a managed file transfer platform to move big data into Hadoop,” says Bill Buie, EVP of Sales and Marketing at Globalscape. “And what makes EFT 2013 ideal is it is proven technology that can be scaled to not only handle the stresses and demands of transferring big data, but also to execute it efficiently with military-grade security.”
EFT 2013 will enable users of HDP to quickly and securely move files to the Apache Hadoop framework. Because of EFT’s flexibility, it can be implemented with Hortonworks systems. Multiple deployment options ensure that all HDP users can tailor EFT to meet their specific needs.
