Zettaset, a big-data security specialist, today released Fast-PATH, an advanced software configuration management solution that automates and accelerates Hadoop deployment, significantly reducing the overreliance on costly and time-consuming professional services that burdens today’s big data environments.

Hadoop is rapidly evolving but has not yet reached the level of maturity and sophistication that traditional relational databases offer.  As a result, users expecting lower operational costs from Hadoop software and infrastructure are surprised to find they must spend enormous sums for software support and maintenance in the form of recurring “subscription” fees.

Zettaset Fast-PATH streamlines Hadoop deployment for the enterprise with software automation that eliminates many manual configuration processes, thereby reducing ongoing support requirements. Fast-PATH automates multiple Hadoop functions, including provisioning, installation, configuration, and testing of the software.  As a result, cluster deployment can be achieved more rapidly, with much less IT intervention and associated cost.

In recent benchmark testing, Zettaset Fast-PATH fully installed a 50-node Hadoop cluster in 140 minutes (2 hours and 20 minutes). The benchmark time included installation of the Hadoop distribution as well as installation of Kerberos, HBase, Hive, Encryption, Key Management, and Zettaset’s patented High-Availability framework on all nodes.
