Big Data Start-Up Honored for Technological Breakthrough in Software
MILPITAS, CA–(Marketwired – September 28, 2015) – In recognition of its game-changing Big Data Availability Management solution, Talena has been named to The 2015 Silicon Valley Innovation & Entrepreneurship Forum (SVIEF) Top 30 Innovation Awards. The honor comes just a month after the company emerged from stealth with $12 million in financing and the industry’s first solution to address Big Data workloads.
Winners were selected for industry impact and celebrated yesterday Sunday, September 27 at an awards ceremony held at the 5th annual SVIEF at the Santa Clara Convention Center.
“It’s an exciting time for our company and the big data market as a whole,” said Talena Founder and CEO Nitin Donde. “We’re pleased with market’s response to our solution and with the impact our technology is already making — and we look forward to continuing to work with our clients to manage today’s big data workloads.”
Talena’s unique approach protects critical data assets across next generation platforms like Apache Cassandra, Hadoop and Spark and optimizes processes from test/dev management to backup and recovery to archiving. With its integrated platform that spans multiple big data sources and workflows, Talena overcomes the limitations inherent in traditional data management operations by addressing a new set of requirements for data availability management including petabyte-scale, diverse data formats and a content-aware storage and compute engine.
