The solution for the industry’s next big opportunity

The “BI on Hadoop” accelerator solves a major market need as the first of its kind to bridge the gap between two massive markets coming together: the $20 billion Business Intelligence market and the $50 billion Big Data industry.

“Tableau helps people see and understand data,” says Michael Hoff, Vice President of Channel at Tableau. “Customers who have deployed AtScale have experienced tremendous performance improvements and like the solution’s simplicity and tight integration with Tableau. We look forward to working with AtScale to bring this solution to market with a special program for our customers. Tableau customers and partners should look at this new offer as an “all-in-one” solution which will help meet their BI on Hadoop needs.”

AtScale, backed by investors Jerry Yang (co-founder at Yahoo!) and Amr Awadallah (co-founder at Cloudera), partnered with Tableau to further enable business users to analyze data at unlimited scale, unprecedented speed and security.

“Our common vision is to provide business users with an enterprise-grade experience on Hadoop,” says Dave Mariani, CEO and Founder of AtScale. “Tableau’s enterprise customers have already experienced the benefits of our approach and with this new offer, any business user can unleash Tableau on Hadoop in minutes and query billions of rows at top speed.”

Speed, Simplicity and Security

AtScale offers enterprise-grade BI for Hadoop capabilities to deliver exceptional performance and business results. It benefits customers such as Wargaming, which transitioned a $1B franchise from an aging technology stack to AtScale + Tableau. Yellow Pages, another customer, was able to query over 50B rows of data in less than one second, a 100X improvement compared to prior solutions.

Save Time and Money
In addition to bringing a better solution to the market, better value is also being offered. AtScale and select Tableau Partners have invested together to bring this game changing solution to customers in the most cost effective and time saving manner possible.

“The AtScale platform delivers the type of performance on the Hadoop platform that Tableau users have grown to expect from more traditional analytical databases,” says Bryan Senseman, founder at Inquidia, a Tableau partner. “When looking to propose solutions to our clients, we look for innovative, proven solutions that deliver tangible value. The AtScale approach is well aligned with Tableau’s strategy, both from a business and a technology standpoint. We are excited to take this offer to market!”
