NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - Mar 18, 2015) - Spark Summit East --  Cloudwick, the leading enterprise big data consulting, professional and managed services provider to the Global 1000, announced its newest service at Spark Summit East, called Cloudwick Insight™ for Spark. Cloudwick Insight™ for Spark is an assessment service that uses Pepperdata, the leader in Apache Hadoop and Spark performance optimization, to analyze Spark jobs by CPU, RAM, disk I/O, and network utilization.

Spark administrators face visibility limitations from existing management tools, thereby limiting the ability to troubleshoot and de-bug Spark job performance across resources. Cloudwick Insight for Spark overcomes this challenge by allowing Cloudwick to assess and recommend how to optimize performance on Hortonworks or Cloudera clusters, by identifying and then tuning by Spark job, node and/or network resource.

"We turned to Cloudwick to help us optimize Spark for analytics used in our advertising products," said Joe Matarese, CTO of TV advertising and data solutions leader, BlackArrow. "Cloudwick Insight Powered by Pepperdata gave us a deeper understanding about Spark jobs on our Cloudera cluster and helped us to make intelligent resource allocation decisions. Today, with the level of visibility and control provided by Cloudwick, we can be more proactive about performance tuning."

"Pepperdata enables us to provide our customers with key insight on their resource usage for Spark jobs, allowing us to further improve their big data projects and ongoing support," said Mani Chhabra, Cloudwick CEO and founder. "Global 1000 enterprises rely on Cloudwick to deliver cost-effective, turnkey solutions for running and maintaining Cloudera and Hortonworks clusters with Spark. Cloudwick Insight provides deep insight and visibility and optimizes cluster performance."

"We're excited to be partnering with Cloudwick to bring the power of Pepperdata's real-time cluster optimizer to Spark," said Sean Suchter, CEO and cofounder of Pepperdata. "Together, we enable users to get the maximum performance and value out of their Spark clusters."
