Guest Blogger: Mark Schreiber, General Manager at Cloudwick
At Cloudwick we’re constantly evaluating cloud platforms to improve the efficiency of our data and analytics service. Today, we manage more than $100 million of public cloud big data and advanced analytics for the Global 1000. For several years, we’ve been evaluating OpenStack® solutions for Hadoop, Cassandra and Spark performance testing.
Our conclusion: Cisco OpenStack® Private Cloud is the industry’s best-in-class private cloud platform for Big Data and Advanced Analytic workloads. It provides us with all of the advantages that come from the public cloud but at a lower cost of service with better security options and locality of data.
As a result we’re choosing Cisco OpenStack Private Cloud for Cloudwick’s Enterprise Big-Data-as-a-Service. Why?
- Data Locality
Cloudwick manages Petabytes of Enterprise Big Data and the majority of data we manage resides on-premise. Not having to move enterprise data from on-premise to the cloud to gain platform agility provides enormous savings to our clients.
Cisco’s OpenStack Private Cloud makes it possible for enterprise IT to provision Hadoop, Cassandra, Elastic, Kafka & Spark clusters in minutes, as opposed to days, providing competitive advantage for enterprise time-to-decision and answer.
Cloudwick works with leading Global 1000 enterprises in Finance, Banking, Insurance, Healthcare and Retail, where consumer data security is a top priority. The security architecture and solution that Cisco’s OpenStack Private Cloud platform provides allows our enterprise clients to meet their regulatory and compliance requirements with all of the same advantages delivered by public cloud providers, but on-premises and behind their own security.
Partnering for Success
Cloudwick is excited to be working closely with Cisco, Hortonworks, Cloudera and DataStax to accelerate the adoption of Big Data and Advanced Analytics running on Hadoop, Cassandra and Spark. Additionally, we’re partnering with Cisco’s leading channel partners to architect and engineer Cisco’s OpenStack Private Cloud for Big Data and Advanced Analytics workloads.

Our customers’ expectations and buying behaviors are changing, and more brands compete for their attention. We either need to reinvent our approach to marketing or risk losing business to our competitors.
The big change in buying behavior is that most of us now research a product online before we ever meet with a salesperson. This is true whether we’re looking to buy a washing machine or IT infrastructure.

Last week at Red Hat Summit 2015 I had the opportunity to meet with customers, partners, analysts and members of the open source community to hear their challenges. On a panel with IDC, we discussed how industries are being disrupted in ways that bring both staggering challenges and unprecedented opportunities. We generally agreed that digitization is the answer to this industry disruption. In other words, in order to survive companies of all types need to become digital companies by leveraging new technologies to drastically evolve their business models, or change how they engage with customers, employees and suppliers, for instance.
We also agreed that Open Source solutions are often the right choice for IT departments as they look to navigate these transformations. Particularly as the cloud industry increasingly turns towards open source technology as a catalyst for innovation, the opportunity for Cisco, Red Hat and our partners to capitalize on this market disruption is immense.
Having worked together successfully on unified computing and networking for years, less than a year ago Cisco and Red Hat announced expanding our partnership and accelerating collaboration around OpenStack, Application Centric Infrastructure and Intercloud. We are now well positioned to help our customers deploy the new solutions that will power their digitization plans. Read More »
