Robin and 451 Group Discuss Running Big Data and Databases: DIY or Amazon Managed Services (EMR, RDS), to Present Pros and Cons of Each

Cloud Agility to the Max -  Easily Deploy Distributed, Clustered and Data-Rich Applications to the Cloud Without Compromising Predictability, Flexibility and Performance

San Jose, California, UNITED STATES

SAN JOSE, Calif., July 14, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) --


The benefits of the cloud for stateful apps are clear – from flexibility and ease of use to optional scalability and, potentially, the reduced costs that some claim to realize by using a subscription model.

However, deploying stateful applications to the cloud remains difficult for anyone that needs predictable performance, easy scaling, full database access, multi-tenancy and enterprise grade disaster recovery and failover. On top of that, there’s vendor lock-in, which could lead to frustration.

In this webinar, Razi Sharir, VP of Products, at Robin Systems, and Jay Lyman, Principal Analyst, at 451 Research, will discuss the pros and cons of using Amazon EMR vs. DIY.

Attendees will learn:

  • How enterprises are achieving success in deploying and managing entire complex distributed data pipelines easily.
  • How to increase agility and modernize your cloud infrastructure.
  • When to build your own “as a Service” versus sticking with managed services paradigms.

At the end of the session, attendees will receive a special offer to see the difference for themselves.


Tuesday, July 18 at 10 AM PDT (1 PM EDT)  


The webinar will feature presenters, Jay Lyman, Principal Analyst in the Development, DevOps and IT Ops Channel at 451 Research, and Razi Sharir, VP of Products at Robin Systems. 

Jay Lyman covers infrastructure software, primarily private cloud platforms, cloud management and enterprise use cases that center on orchestration, the confluence of software development and IT operations known as DevOps, Docker and containers. Prior to joining 451 Research, Jay worked as a journalist for various media firms and publications including CMP Media, LinuxInsider, NewsForge, Time Magazine and the Associated Press. 

Razi is a veteran product management executive and joined Robin from CA technologies, where he led the SaaS Center of Excellence and Product Management for the team that developed a container-based Enterprise PaaS geared for modern application economy.
