ScaleOut Software is a pioneer in in-memory data grid software. Since our first products shipped in January 2005, we have consistently developed leading-edge technologies that help our customers solve scalability and performance challenges and gain competitive advantages for their businesses.
ScaleOut hServer can be installed directly on Hadoop nodes and runs in-memory. Once installed, hServer can connect to any serializable data source like HDFS and begin executing standard Hadoop MapReduce code over that data without costly initialization or trips to disk. hServer is optimized for executing MapReduce code over live, fast-changing data. This means that you can combine live, operational data with the insights discovered from historical batch data and run familiar Hadoop MapReduce code continuously over that data. Using ScaleOut, Hortonworks customers have an operational intelligence solution that spans a full spectrum of real-time use cases.
