Big Data Startup Xcalar® Teams with NetApp to Provide Best-In-Class Solution for Business Analytics and Data Management

Share Article

Xcalar leverages resiliency, availability and scalability built into NetApp storage with simple, powerful and easy-to-use data analytics platform.

Xcalar today teamed with NetApp to provide Data ONTAP users with a business analytics and data management platform that enables the exploration of all business data in a familiar spreadsheet-like paradigm, at scale, directly and interactively without requiring programming skills.

Xcalar is the first business analytics platform to enable Fundamental Discovery™ of meaningful insights directly from petabytes of data. Xcalar uniquely extends relational compute on a scale-out platform for modern data, giving businesses the ability to discover insights not previously possible.

Using Xcalar’s True Data in Place™ technology, NetApp users can derive insights directly from their data managed by NetApp without copying or moving that data. Xcalar’s technology keeps all data on the NetApp® storage platform in its original form. This retains all the data management, reliability, and efficiency users expect and rely upon from NetApp for critical business data. Processed data and analytics result sets can be written directly back to NetApp storage.

Xcalar supports cloud object storage, including Amazon S3, as well as SAN, HDFS and NAS. From a single Xcalar deployment, users can directly access their NetApp storage via NFS, NetApp StorageGRID® Webscale data via Amazon S3 or Hadoop storage backed by NetApp E-Series – all without configuring gateways or other intermediary steps. Xcalar interprets data in any format, enabling users to begin modeling dataflows in minutes, without the need for a separate ETL process or data copying.

The Xcalar architecture separates compute from storage. This enables infinite flexibility for on-premises, cloud, and hybrid cloud deployments.

“We are very enthusiastic about this partnership. Xcalar’s architecture and NetApp storage are well matched,” said Rebecca Ye, Xcalar’s COO and co-founder. “Xcalar’s platform provides NetApp users with a unique, best-in-class business analytics and data management solution that is powerful and easy to use.”
