Robin Systems & Zettaset Partner to Deliver Highly Secure & Elastic Containerization Solution for Mission-Critical Applications

Integrated enterprise-class solution eliminates server, VM, and storage boundaries while bringing performance, security, and application mobility into Big Data environments

SAN JOSE and MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., March 30, 2016 Robin Systems, the pioneer in containerization enterprise software, and Zettaset, the leader in Big Data security, today announced a strategic partnership that will provide organizations with a scalable, performance-optimized, and highly secure container-based solution for Big Data applications.

Robin’s container-based, application-aware, compute and storage platform liberates applications from servers, VMs, and storage limitations. Robin ensures the best possible hardware utilization with multi-tenant harmony and complete performance isolation for each application. By leveraging lightweight and portable container-based application packaging technology, Robin enables seamless application mobility across machines and across clouds. Robin is the ONLY containerization platform that works with all types of enterprise applications, including performance-sensitive databases and Big Data clusters.

Robin’s Virtual Data Lake capability enables organizations to consolidate data across multiple HDFS clusters and make it available to applications in a unified manner. This helps democratize data access and eliminates delays in provisioning or copying data. By enabling on-demand data access, Robin helps organizations become more agile, productive, and data-driven. However, as data is a critical enterprise asset, it is vital to ensure security and governance. By using Zettaset data encryption and governance capability along with Robin Virtual Data Lake, an organization can ensure secure sharing of data across the enterprise, empower business users, and cut costs by eliminating data duplication.

“Robin Systems provides enterprises with a high-performance and elastic containerization platform for data-driven mission-critical applications, and together with Zettaset we can now provide those same customers with an exceptionally high level of data protection,” said Premal Buch, chief executive officer of Robin Systems. “The Zettaset Big Data encryption suite is a great match for us because it can easily scale out in distributed computing systems like Hadoop and NoSQL, and performs equally well in VM deployments on premises or in the cloud.”

In key global markets, cloud usage is rapidly growing and will ultimately outstrip internally managed systems. Lost among all the excitement about the potential of Big Data in the cloud are the very real security and privacy challenges that threaten to slow this momentum. Cloud computing adoption has progressed at an unprecedented rate, while data security has raced to catch up.

“As Hadoop users migrate from pilot to production and move into larger-scale infrastructures, security and privacy issues are suddenly caught in the spotlight,” said Jim Vogt, Zettaset CEO. “As a data-centric enterprise security company with deep expertise in Big Data encryption, we bring a higher level of rigor and discipline to data protection that transforms open source environments like Hadoop and other NoSQL into trusted data stores. Our strategic partnership with Robin Systems reaffirms Zettaset’s position as a leader in securing sensitive data across petabyte-scale Big Data stores and applications wherever they reside.”

About Robin Systems
Robin is heralding a new era in data-center evolution with industry’s first Application-Defined Data Center software. Robin’s container-based, compute and storage platform makes the boundaries among servers, virtual machines, and storage invisible to the applications. This maximizes hardware utilization, eliminates virtual machine and data sprawl, and dramatically simplifies application lifecycle. Robin is the first company to bring the containerization benefits to mission-critical enterprise applications, such as databases and Big data clusters, to enable high performance workload consolidation with the agility and flexibility previously available only to micro-applications.
