KAYAK Selects Talena to Protect Critical Big Data Assets

Press Release

Leader in Online Travel Turns to Talena for More Effective Backup Strategy


SAN JOSE, CA–(Marketwired – August 24, 2016) – August 24, 2016 — KAYAK, the world’s leading travel search engine, has selected Talena, the always-on big data pioneer, to provide scalable backup and granular recovery capabilities across its HPE Vertica environment. Talena’s unique smart storage optimizer and automated backup processes will help KAYAK save time and money and free up valuable engineering resources. Talena, an HPE Big Data Platform Technology Alliance Program partner, is fully certified for the HPE Vertica Analytics Platform and available for HPE Vertica customers in the HPE Big Data Marketplace.


KAYAK operates more than 40 international sites in 20 languages, and processes more than one billion searches for travel information each year. The organization uses HPE Vertica for mission-critical applications and relied on data replicas to protect these vitally important assets. Understanding the risks associated with accidental data deletion or application corruption, KAYAK turned to Talena for a more effective backup strategy. Selected for its incremental-forever backup approach and smart storage optimizer, Talena will help reduce KAYAK’s operating and capital costs. Built to support big data workloads in a single user interface, Talena will support KAYAK across on-premises and cloud environments and reduce the impact of costly downtime via its flexible, granular recovery architecture.


“We’re pleased that KAYAK selected Talena for its HPE Vertica environment,” said Talena Founder and CEO Nitin Donde. “Leaders like KAYAK understand that they must support today’s big data workloads efficiently while minimizing the impact of downtime — and that relying on data replicas alone is not protection enough. We look forward to supporting KAYAK’s continued growth by providing the necessary software architecture needed to protect their vital business assets.”


Talena will be highlighting its big data management solutions at the HPE Big Data Conference in Boston, Mass., August 29 through September 1.
