Big Data management vendor Zettaset today announced the finalization of $10 million in Series B funding. The funding round was led by HighBar Partners with participation from Series A investors DFJ and Epic Ventures in addition to Brocade, a strategic investor. The funding will be used to expand sales and marketing initiatives and accelerate research and development of its platform for managing Hadoop clusters. Zettaset’s core product, the Zettaset Orchestrator, streamlines the installation and management of Hadoop. Zettaset Orchestrator simplifies the deployment of Hadoop, adds efficiency to its ongoing operational management and enhances the security of Hadoop-based deployments. The platform features an administrative interface marked by the capability to produce custom reports on the integrity and activity within a Hadoop cluster or deployment. Compatible with any Apache Hadoop distribution, Zettaset’s platform aims to reduce enterprise overhead related to Hadoop deployment and management. Today’s investment suggestively illustrates commercial interest not only in Hadoop distributions and analytics, but also in infrastructures–such as Zettaset’s–that simplify Hadoop management and enhance compliance with the regulatory demands of contemporary enterprises.
