Continuuity Collaborates With Rackspace to Enable Big Data Application Lifecycle for Developers

PALO ALTO, CA--(Marketwired - Oct 29, 2013) - Continuuity, creator of the industry's first scale-out application server for Apache Hadoop, today announced a strategic relationship with Rackspace® Hosting (NYSE: RAX), the open cloud company, at Strata + Hadoop World 2013. Rackspace is collaborating with Continuuity to provide complementary technology solutions to their Big Data service offerings. Continuuity Reactor provides the Big Data ecosystem with an application platform not only to develop Hadoop applications but also to operationalize and monetize Big Data initiatives.

Continuuity makes it easy for any Java developer to build, deploy, scale and manage Apache Hadoop and HBase applications in the cloud or on-premise. Continuuity Reactor empowers developers to focus their efforts on the development of the application by abstracting the complexity of Hadoop components and exposing the power of Big Data in a simple and intuitive way.

In support of our strategic agreement with Rackspace, Continuuity is committed to deliver a fully integrated Big Data application lifecycle for Java developers:

  • Ease of access for Big Data developers -- Developers can download the free Continuuity Development Kit and deploy to the Rackspace Cloud using the free Sandbox Reactor, which in turn can be easily pushed to a public or private cloud.
  • Continuuity Reactor will support Rackspace's OpenStack-based cloud, making it easy for Big Data developers to build applications in Rackspace's private and public cloud. 
  • Continuuity's participation as a Big Data solution in Rackspace's Cloud Tools Marketplace.

"We are very excited about this strategic collaboration with Continuuity. Continuuity Reactor makes it easy for developers to build Big Data applications," said John Engates, CTO of Rackspace. "The combination of Continuuity Reactor with Rackspace Cloud will facilitate the full application life cycle for data driven application developers. This aligns well with our commitment towards delivering the best possible technology platform for a customer's use case."

"We think this is a big win for Big Data developers. Our partnership enables Continuuity's capabilities and value propositions to be more accessible to developers given Rackspace's long-standing focus on the developer community and significant reach industry-wide", said Jonathan Gray, CEO of Continuuity.
