SUNNYVALE, CA--(Marketwired - Jul 22, 2015) - Pepperdata, a software company that delivers predictability, capacity, and visibility for Hadoop, announced today it has been named to The Channel Company's 2015 CRN® Emerging Vendors List. Pepperdata was recognized among up-and-coming technology vendors for introducing an innovative real-time Hadoop cluster supervisor, which has produced opportunities for channel partners in North America to create cutting-edge solutions for customers. Pepperdata has demonstrated a commitment to developing new technologies to meet the growing market demand for solutions that deliver better visibility into, and optimization of, big data.

Pepperdata's enterprise-grade software installs in 20 minutes on an existing Hadoop cluster without any modifications to scheduler, workflow, or job submission processes. Pepperdata software handles resource contention dynamically and in real time, providing operators with increased control so they can meet SLAs for mission-critical jobs and applications while getting more work done with existing hardware. In fact, typical customer deployments see an average gain in cluster throughput of 30-50 percent. Pepperdata customers can reliably run multi-workload environments on multi-tenant systems thanks to the ability to enforce SLAs and integrated dynamic capacity management.

As a part of its channel strategy, Pepperdata has partnered with several of the largest Hadoop distributors in the industry to help customers solve bottleneck and performance issues, which arise within a multi-workflow Hadoop environment at scale. Pepperdata maximizes performance of Hadoop clusters while helping customers keep overhead low.

"Solution providers continue to keep their finger on the pulse of emerging technology in order to stay ahead of customer needs. The exciting technology vendors recognized in this year's Emerging Vendors List don't disappoint -- the innovative technologies they bring to the table provide channel partners with product options that will propel their success into the future," said Robert Faletra, CEO of The Channel Company. "We congratulate 2015's Emerging Vendors for their outstanding efforts and for delivering cutting-edge technology solutions that will continue to evolve the IT channel."

"Every day we help companies make billions of decisions automatically, eliminating performance bottlenecks to maximize value from their Hadoop deployments. We strongly believe our partnerships with other vendors in the space are lending credibility to the importance of optimizing the performance and predictability of big data initiatives," said Sean Suchter, CEO of Pepperdata. "We are proud to be named to CRN's list of emerging vendors."

Companies included in CRN's 2015 Emerging Vendors list were founded in 2009 or later and are actively working with channel partners in North America. The list, along with information about each vendor, will be published in CRN's August 2015 issue and will be available online at
