CROC Cloud Services Offers Big Data from the Cloud

4 minutes

CROC Cloud Services has launched a new Big Data service in partnership with Arenadata, a Russian vendor of enterprise data storage, processing and analysis platforms. Arenadata DB cloud system helps large companies in a CAPEX-free manner handle up-to-date and comprehensive data for new service roll-out and better customer experience.  

Big Data technologies are gaining momentum when it comes to business intelligence and marketing tasks, especially in the telecom, retail, finance, and manufacturing sectors, as companies chase after insights to boost both business growth and corporate profits. Today, Big Data analysis helps with a range of activities such as launching special offer campaigns following weather forecasts, offering rates based on a subscriber's geolocation, handling sensor data to predict production equipment failure, and even improving credit scoring efficiency. The cloud-based model makes Big Data solutions more affordable for a wide range of organizations.  

The new offering by CROC Cloud Services will be demanded by both new Big Data adopters and experienced corporate users. Unlike on-premise installation, Big Data cloud systems do not require operation or upgrade-related CAPEX.

The cloud service is based on Arenadata DB, an enterprise solution certified by ODPi, the largest open source developer community worldwide. This Russian solution is adapted for cloud computing. Arenadata DB is an ideal tool for enterprise data warehousing (EDW), business intelligence, ad-hoc queries and enterprise-grade data science. As data amounts grow, a user simply adds new servers to the cluster, while ADB takes care of the rest.  

"Big Data is on the radar of businesses today, with more and more relevant marketing, customer experience management, and product development cases being unveiled in the market. This is a convenient and cost-saving service for companies looking for an effective predictive analytics, reporting, and customer churn analysis tool. Upon request, we can configure Arenadata DB in line with the requirements of a particular customer to allow for testing of new service capabilities and estimation of business potential," said Sergey Zinkevich, Product Manager, CROC Cloud Services.

“While we believe that our partnership with CROC Cloud Services is a win-win, Arenadata users will benefit the most as they can now leverage data analysis solution either on-premise or from the cloud. SaaS customers will enjoy continuous service availability and reap the benefits provided by our partner: high quality support, scalable cloud infrastructure, cost transparency, and extra services such as network connectivity setup," said Anton Martynov, Partner Channel Manager, Arenadata.
