Vertascale, a venture-backed startup headquartered in Menlo Park, California, is developing a lightweight, cross-platform business intelligence application. Geared to dramatically reduce time-to-impact for BI on big data, Vertascale introduces the world’s first “Integrated Data Browser” — an easy-to-use desktop application that enables fast, graphical access to big data across Hadoop, Amazon S3, and beyond. Purpose-built to leverage the massive parallel processing and in-memory capabilities of underlying big data environments, Vertascale eliminates the need for complex coding, data replication, additional infrastructure, or other low-level considerations. Fast analytics and visualization on big data are now just a click away. Vertascale: desktop access to big data — delivered.
