VMware Buys Big Data Startup Founded By Indians
Bangalore: Continuing the stampede of tech acquisitions, VMware bought Cetas, a big data startup co-founded by two Indians. Realizing that big data applications are the next big thing, VMware made an undisclosed but an evidently compelling offer to the 18 month old startup that provides analytics to many Fortune1000 companies.
As per a Giga Om, Dr. Muddu Sudhakar, CEO and Co-Founder, and Karthik Kannan, VP and Co-Founder of Cetas, claim that their real-time algorithms have been designed with elasticity in mind to run efficient enterprise resource scans on virtualized data centers. The article also states that, Cetas’, which had no reason to run into an acquisition, services to provide instant analytical intelligence that function on the Hadoop platform have been noticed by VMware since a long time.
“The Cetas team has been driving the democratization of analytics and business intelligence by dramatically lowering the barriers to entry for all companies, from small businesses to large enterprises. The Cetas analytics service provides next generation Big Data analytics and predictive intelligence systems that can operate at a scale of hundreds of terabytes and billions of events for online companies and enterprises,” said the official VMware blog announcing the acquisition.
VMware could obtain a great deal of help from Cetas in developing their own infrastructure software as well as providing operational analytics from both virtual and physical machines. Tools developed by the Palo Alto based startup can slake the craving of enterprises for operational analytics and elevate VMware to the next big thing in enterprise big data by providing accurate business insights to monitor and predict important business trends.
Great news for the subscribers of Cetas analytics would be that the company would continue work for its existing prospects as well, under VMware with a little change in customer and business models.
