BMC TrueSight Capacity Optimization Certified for Hadoop Big Data Environments

HOUSTON, Oct. 28, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- BMC, the global leader in software solutions for IT, today announced that its TrueSight Capacity Optimization solution is certified for integration on both Cloudera Enterprise and Hortonworks Hadoop environments. The integration enables digital enterprises to accurately plan for and maximize their investment in the Hadoop IT infrastructure resources they need to quickly deploy Big Data applications and ensure ongoing service delivery.

Digital enterprises are increasingly using Big Data to secure business insights that deliver a competitive advantage. According to a recent IDC forecast, the Big Data technology and services market will grow at a 26.4 percent compound annual growth rate to $41.5 billion through 2018, or about six times the growth rate of the overall information technology market.

BMC's TrueSight Capacity Optimization solution is available for Hadoop capacity management, enabling enterprises to automate the planning and management of the growth and use of their Hadoop compute, storage and network resources. With this knowledge, organizations can accurately plan capital expenditures and optimize their infrastructure investment for their Hadoop projects, as well as ensure that Hadoop clusters have the resources needed to support current and future application workloads and reduce the risk of application failure due to capacity shortfalls.

"Success in the digital economy demands that enterprises quickly and intelligently respond to customer, market and other business developments. To enable this agility and insight, many companies turn to Hadoop and Big Data applications," said Bill Berutti, president of the cloud, data center and performance businesses at BMC. "BMC's TrueSight Capacity Optimization gives organizations the ability to plan, control and optimize their ongoing IT investment in their Hadoop environments. Ultimately, the TrueSight Capacity Optimization solution enables them to accelerate their transformation into digital enterprises that move at the speed of business."

"BMC's TrueSight Capacity Optimization integration with Cloudera Manager provides organizations with added visibility and analysis of their Cloudera cluster resources. This added insight allows organizations to better understand existing big data environments and plan for future business workloads," said Tim Stevens, vice president of Business and Corporate Development at Cloudera.

"Hortonworks is dedicated to expanding and empowering the Apache Hadoop ecosystem, accelerating innovation and adoption of Open Enterprise Hadoop," said Matt Morgan, vice president of product and alliance marketing at Hortonworks. "We are pleased to welcome BMC's TrueSight Capacity Optimization solution to the Apache Hadoop community and look forward to working with them to help strengthen Hadoop's role as the foundation of the next-generation data architecture. The relationship will help accelerate successful implementations of TrueSight Capacity Optimization and the Hortonworks Data Platform to deliver data driven business transformations."
