WANdisco Unveils Data Activation Platform 2.0 to Accelerate

On January 19, 2023, WANdisco, a data activation company, announced the launching of its Data Activation Platform 2.0 to enable faster migrations of massive datasets. Leveraging both the WANdisco Data Migrator and Edge to Cloud technologies, the updates enhance the speed and scalability of on-premises and edge data transfers through high precision control over migration throughput, prioritization, and cleanup, among other capabilities. In addition, the updates improve data movement performance from Hadoop environments and IoT sensor data to any cloud, boosting the commercial value of data regardless of where it resides.

Organizations maintain a complicated data web that spans numerous storage environments with channels that connect to multiple clouds. According to IDC, businesses store data across five primary domains, but mostly in on-premises, edge locations, and public cloud.

Furthermore, 69% of data leaders are unable to use their data due to lengthy timelines, high costs, and risk of data transfers between environments, as per the 2022 State of Data Activation report. Multi-cloud strategies, in which organizations use artificial intelligence (AI), machine learning (ML), and analytics capabilities of different clouds for distinct use cases, add to this complexity.

Data Activation Platform 2.0 offers granular control over all or selective data transfers within a streamlined user interface. New automated tools optimize migration and storage resources across environments, with the goal of increasing the speed at which large-scale datasets can be migrated to any cloud.

David Richards, CEO and Founder of WANdisco, said, "Businesses face a dizzying challenge in moving massive amounts of data from a lot of sources to a lot of targets. As data continues to amass at the edge and on-premises at an unprecedented pace, solutions must improve to handle massive data transfers at incredible speeds – but also deliver a seamless experience." He further added, "Data Activation Platform 2.0 does just that. Now enterprises will have even greater control over all, or specific, data transfers happening across their business."

Pico | January 27, 2023

Pico is one of the global leaders in providing mission-critical technology services, software, data and analytics to the financial markets. While its Corvil Analytics is best known for ensuring the performance of low-latency electronic trading systems, Corvil VoIP Analytics is used to oversee the operations and performance of some of the world's biggest and most complex VoIP installations. To make sure that VoIP is reliable and of good quality, the Corvil method of evaluating network and application activity at the same time is essential. Chief Product Officer at Pico, Stacie Swanstrom, said, “With 20 years of experience in deriving operational intelligence from demanding and dynamic networks, Corvil Analytics has established a critical role in high-performance trading environments.” She added, “Corvil VoIP Analytics takes the ability to capture and decode lossless granularly timestamped data at 100GB and applies it to VoIP applications, providing the same rich data clients have come to expect in both on-prem and cloud deployments.” (Source – GlobeNewswire) One significant advantage of Corvil's wire data technique is that it offers a vendor-agnostic method of managing VoIP quality.

Arize Introduces Data Lake Connectors

Arize AI | January 24, 2023

On January 23, 2023, Arize AI, an industry leader in machine learning observability, introduced a connection solution for BigQuery, Redshift, Delta Lake, and Snowflake data lakes. As a result, Arize customers with centrally managed inference stores can rapidly connect their ML table data to Arize via Data Lake Connectors for strong model observability. Arize is the market leader in terms of both volumes of models and predictions tracked, surpassing billions of predictions daily. So far, ML observability platforms have struggled to simplify their deployments while simultaneously managing billions of predictions and complicated monitoring services, such as embedding drift. The latest Arize version for data connectors expands clients' connectivity options with the widely used data lakes. The launch comes as the machine learning community converges on various MLOps designs. A modern machine learning architecture approach involves storing inference data in a data lake. ML teams are designing these ML data lakes to power feature stores for feature serving and an inference store for analysis. Arize Data Lake Connectors are intended for smooth integration with today's data lake architectures. Among the benefits of connecting directly to the ML data store are the following: Financial savings can be substantial as compared to alternative techniques of ML monitoring. Teams can run off of an SSOT Integration and onboarding are accelerated and simplified Arize now connects with cloud storage providers (such as Google Cloud Platform, Microsoft Azure, and Amazon Web Services), Python pipelines through an SDK, and Kafka Streaming. With this release, users of data lakes may get real-time model insights more efficiently than ever before. In addition, the platform provides fully managed built-in connectors as part of its cloud and VPC platform, eliminating the need for users to build and maintain complex data pipelines or use a separate ETL tool and providing real-time model performance analysis and monitoring. About Arize AI Arize AI offers an ML observability platform that monitors models and provides insights for troubleshooting production AI. The firm was established in 2020 in Berkeley, California. It allows corporate clients to monitor the performance of AI models using software that searches for unanticipated biases in algorithms, does root-cause analysis when issues arise, and enhances overall model performance.
