Instaclustr, the leading provider of completely managed solutions for scalable open source technologies, announced its sponsorship and participation at AWS re:Invent 2018. The fast-growing Palo Alto-headquartered company will demonstrate the newest additions to its Instaclustr Managed Platform, a solution fueling customers’ transitions from legacy environments to durable, secure, and optimized open source data-layer technology solutions – all delivered through the cloud and as-a-service. AWS re:Invent 2018 takes place November 26-30 in Las Vegas, with Instaclustr exhibiting at booth #2810.
Enterprises across industries know they must modernize antiquated architectures and implement significantly more future-proof, next-generation solutions to succeed. Delaying inevitable digital transformations and cloud migrations only cause more long-term challenges, and organizations embracing change now gain a competitive foothold. Open source software continues to see markedly increased traction as a long-term answer for enterprise IT strategy – mature, community-backed solutions decrease development costs, provide more agility and innovation potential, and offer security rooted in transparent code that is overseen by technologists across many organizations (not just one vendor). Rising open source adoption in the enterprise is also enabling more experimentation without requiring long-term investments demanded by proprietary counterparts. At the same time, today’s customer-centric applications must deliver absolute reliability, scale, performance, and security – and battle-tested open source solutions are well-matched to enable today’s businesses to adopt modernized cloud-based infrastructures that support agile processes, eliminate single points of failure, and significantly reduce downtime.
Instaclustr empowers more than 200 customers (such as Accenture, IBM, Peloton, and Sonos) to take complete advantage of the massive benefits its managed open source technologies offer – and with a strategy specifically optimized for their use case. The Instaclustr Managed Platform for open source technologies is built on key data stack solutions including Apache Cassandra, Spark, Kafka, Lucene, Elasticsearch, and an increasing array of other core database, analytics, search, and messaging technologies. Importantly, all are delivered in their 100% open source form – not commercialized open source versions.
As demand for open source migration swells – Instaclustr has achieved 300% revenue growth over the past 24 months and now manages 2090 nodes across AWS – the company has continued to build out its resources providing end-to-end expertise and support for customers’ transformations and ongoing optimization. Instaclustr’s complete managed service offers a one-stop destination to build, deploy, manage, and scale its customers’ data infrastructure, all through a platform built for performance, continuous availability, and security. The open source technologies Instaclustr provides have been meticulously selected, configured and fine-tuned to operate together efficiently and effectively, and delivered via either leading cloud provider infrastructures such as AWS, or for private data center deployments.
“As a provider of both the managed open source technologies and the hands-on expertise to ensure businesses are getting the most from those powerful solutions, our core commitment is to more easily allow enterprises to successfully complete their digital transformations and develop modern applications more quickly and less expensively,” said Peter Nichol, CEO, Instaclustr. “We’ve carefully assembled our platform to ensure that every open source technology we deliver features the performance, availability, scalability, and security that today’s enterprises absolutely require. We look forward to meeting attendees at AWS re:Invent 2018 booth #2810 and showcasing all that our platform and service have to offer them.”
“Many enterprises are turning to Database-as-a-Service offerings for potential infrastructure cost reductions, accelerated application development, and reorientation of technical staff toward business-focused growth initiatives,” said James Curtis, Senior Analyst, Data, AI, and Analytics at 451 Research. “Database-as-a-Service vendors such as Instaclustr are positioning themselves to increase enterprises’ comfort with (and adoption of) open source big data technologies through continued expansion of managed platforms for analytics, search, and messaging cloud-based services.”
“We’re excited Instaclustr is again attending re:Invent and showcasing the latest additions to its Open Source-as-a-Service solution,” said Karl Durrance, Head ISV Business Unit ANZ, AWS AWS. “As they continue to see high demand from organizations looking for smart, efficient ways to transition from legacy to next-gen solutions, we’re glad they’ve found success running their managed platform on the AWS Cloud.”
