硅谷最新报道:中国领先的大数据平台厂商星环科技已具备世界级竞争力

公司新闻

(10月3日,在硅谷最牛的大数据分析公司Wikibon组织的会议上,Siliconangel认为Transwarp 已经具备进入美国的能力。)

 

中国的经济和科技产业在过去的几十年中得到了快速的发展。这对全球范围内的竞争有何意义?我们的中国同行们又在做什么样的创新呢?

 

在硅谷视角传媒(SiliconANGLE Media)团队制作theCUBE节目中,主持人Dave Vellante和George Gilbert与星环科技的联合创始人兼CTO孙元浩共同探讨了星环的产品以及和美国的Hadoop厂商在规模上的比较。

 

 

Hadoop核心上的SQL层

 

星环科技提供多个建立在同一个Hadoop核心上的专有产品。与众不同的是,这个Hadoop和核心本身是开源的。Transwarp Data Hub是中国顶尖的Hadoop发行版。Transwarp Data Hub追求以客户需求为导向,利用在Hadoop核心上打造SQL引擎,使得企业客户能够将原有平台上的传统应用轻松迁移到大数据平台上。

 

星环科技的其他专有产品也采用了相似的策略。同时,Gilbert注意到,相对美国的大数据用户,中国用户更关心大数据带来的实际效果。

 

 

规模

 

让人印象最为深刻的是星环科技部署的大数据平台的规模。孙元浩提到星环科技为一家大型运营商打造的大容量数据平台存储了“20PB”的数据。同时,星环科技的产品服务于各种规模的场景,据其网站介绍,可以提供“10GB到100PB”的部署。星环科技已经为成为国际上的大数据厂商有力竞争者做好准备。星环科技携其专有产品进军美国市场的过程值得我们关注。

Transwarp Technologies uses open source and non-proprietary Hadoop core

writer:Andrew Ruggiero

 

The Chinese economy and technology industry have been booming in the past several decades. What does this mean for global competition, and where are our Chinese counterparts innovating?

 

Dave Vellante and George Gilbert, cohosts of theCUBE, from the SiliconANGLE Media team, sat down with Yuanhao Sun, cofounder and CTO of Transwarp Technology, Inc., to gain insight on what Transwarp offers and how it compares in size to U.S. Hadoop vendors.

 

 

SQL layer on Hadoop core

 

Transwarp offers several proprietary products that are built upon a Hadoop core. What’s unique about this Hadoop core is that it is open source and non-proprietary. Transwarp Data Hub is the number one Hadoop distribution available in China; it’s specific to customer demands. This distribution makes it easy for the company’s customers to transition their legacy applications from old infrastructure to new infrastructure. This is done by a SQL engine layer on top of a Hadoop core.

 

Similar methodology is used to apply other proprietary products, and as Gilbert noticed Chinese customers appear to be more interested in the results compared to their American contemporaries.

 

 

Scale

 

The incredible scale of this deployment is what might be most impressive about Transwarp Technologies. Sun mentioned an example “20 petabyte” customer launch for a large telco that requires large data storage requirements to amass its data. The scales vary quite widely for its distribution, being able to handle “10GB to 100PB” deployments according to its website.

 

Transwarp is poised to be an international Big Data competitor, and it’ll be worth looking at its entry into the U.S. market with some of its proprietary solutions.
