SAN FRANCISCO, Calif., Jan. 30 – SiSense and Microsoft Corp. announced today that they are working together to add Windows Azure to SiSense Cloud offer. By installing SiSense on Windows Azure, customers can enjoy the benefits of the company's software in the Cloud as they did on-premises.
SiSense has been serving customers in the Cloud via Amazon, and by adding Windows Azure to its global offer, the company will allow more companies to start crunching data in no time, without having to purchase or configure expensive hardware and software.
"Windows Azure gives customers a more secure and scalable cloud platform for building flexible solutions," said Eugene Saburi, General Manager, Server and Tools Marketing, Microsoft. "SiSense takes advantage of Windows Azure to provide a solution that works seamlessly on-premises and in the Cloud. Their approach helps make Big Data Analytics a reality for everyone."
"Big Data Analytics is too complicated," says Amit Bendov, SiSense CEO. "Customers have to buy dedicated hardware and hire technical teams to configure and administer their infrastructure. It can take months before users can draw value from their data. In an era where traditional solutions can take time to deploy and cost millions, SiSense aims to change the game and provide an affordable solution that works for all," he continues.
SiSense provides everything a business needs to succeed with Big Data Analytics. When deployed in the Cloud, SiSense solution, Prism, allows any business users to sign up for its service online and be up and running in no time, without having to worry about hardware architecture or configuration details.
The benefits of SiSense's offer include:
SiSense Prism is the industry's first solution to offer Big Data Analytics on-premises and in the Cloud, without requiring technical expertise, huge budgets or expensive hardware.
SiSense Prism provides everything a business needs to succeed with Big Data Analytics:
SiSense is democratizing Big Data Analytics by pioneering a new approach that enables organizations of all sizes to make sense of their data. Hundreds of companies, from startups to large enterprises, are choosing this approach over traditional solutions. SiSense Prism -- powered by Elasticube technology -- delivers unmatched simplicity, agility & value. With customers in 48 countries, including global brands like Target and Merck, SiSense was recently designated a company to watch by Information Management and its Prism 3 solution named by CRN a "Hot Product to See at Dreamforce."
Frank Ding, engineering analysis & technical computing manager at Simpson Strong-Tie, discussed the advantages of utilizing the cloud for occasional scientific computing, identified the obstacles to doing so, and proposed workarounds to some of those obstacles.
The private industry least likely to adopt public cloud services for data storage are financial institutions. Holding the most sensitive and heavily-regulated of data types, personal financial information, banks and similar institutions are mostly moving towards private cloud services – and doing so at great cost.
