Big Data Survey and Infographic: The State of Hadoop Environments

Press Release

Talena Survey Offers Data Availability Management Insights, Test/Dev Management and Disaster Recovery Remain Top Concerns


MILPITAS, CA–(Marketwired – September 30, 2015) – Talena, a pioneer in Big Data Availability Management, today released the results of a recent web survey on Hadoop adoption and use of Hadoop technologies, revealing the needs, preferences and challenges associated with data availability management processes for Hadoop environments. The survey comprised more than 100 respondents and offers key insights on Hadoop spending and adoption. 64% of respondents cite disaster recovery and using production data in test/dev environments as the two most critical data management challenges.

Talena Founder and CEO Nitin Donde will discuss the relevance of these Hadoop trends during his presentation at this week’s Strata + Hadoop World in New York in the Intel booth #833 on Thursday, October 1st at 1:00 p.m. as a member of the Intel TAP Ecosystem. Intel’s Trusted Analytics Platform (TAP) is open source software, optimized for performance and security that accelerates the creation of Cloud-native applications driven by Big Data Analytics.


With annual growth rates exceeding 40%, Big Data technologies have given rise to new types of applications across all industries — new applications not supported by traditional data management solutions. As this shift continues to support today’s complex environments and business needs, IT must expand its Big Data initiatives to ensure that mission-critical processes like application recovery and test/dev management are addressed — yet doing so with legacy solutions rapidly increases IT costs and absorbs valuable technical resources.


Key survey takeaways include:

  • More than 50% of the respondents are actively looking for or implementing a data management solution for their Hadoop infrastructure
  • 85% of Hadoop users highlight analytics as their primary use case
  • Over 50% of the respondents have deployed three or fewer Hadoop clusters
  • 30% of the respondents store over 100 TB in their largest cluster


“This survey data underscores what we’re seeing with our own clients, partners and prospects,” said Donde. “From health care to retail, an organization’s data assets are fundamental to today’s business operations. And as Big Data applications grow in size and scope, companies are beginning to realize that the ability to manage, protect and recover their data cost-effectively is critical to their success and long-term competitive advantage.”


Simplifying Big Data Availability Management

The first to focus on Big Data workloads, the Talena solution was developed to address a fundamentally different set of requirements for data availability management including petabyte-scale, diverse data formats and content-aware compute and storage. Talena delivers an entirely new architecture that overcomes the limitations inherent in traditional data management operations. Via an integrated software environment, companies can implement multiple workflows including test/dev management, backup and recovery, archiving and disaster recovery. For more information, visit
