Bigstep Introduces the First Open Data Exploration-as-a-Service
Bigstep DataLab Simplifies and Streamlines Data Science and Analytics
CHICAGO & LONDON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Bigstep, the big data cloud provider, today announced the launch of Bigstep
DataLab, a solution designed to enable data science and analytics at
scale. Bigstep DataLab is an enterprise-ready data research service that
gives domain experts, data scientists and BI specialists instant access
to powerful software like Apache Spark and Jupyter for easier, more
flexible and collaborative ad-hoc data exploration and research.
"Our goal is to make it easy to explore data at large scale with an
integrated set of technologies, as well as experiment with new
technologies as they emerge," said Bigstep Founder and CEO Lucas Roh.
"There is an overwhelming set of choices when it comes to doing
analytics and data science. Bigstep simplifies those choices and yet we
provide the flexibility required to replace any component, such as
substituting one set of data-ingestion tool with another."
The key components of Bigstep DataLab include Bigstep Data Lake,
an infinite repository system where structured, semi-structured, and
unstructured data can be stored side by side and Bigstep Real-Time
Spark Service, a managed, fully scalable big data computation
service capable of machine learning, graph processing, and statistics.
Bigstep DataLab can easily handle large quantities of real-time and
historical data, perform complex machine-learning tasks and be quickly
stopped or repurposed, with on-demand scalability and pricing. It
enables users to experiment with powerful data technologies, leveraging
Bigstep's award-winning bare-metal infrastructure for greater
performance and security than any other cloud offering.
Combining a self-service front-end for collaborative work with data
visualization and manipulation capabilities for non-technical analysts,
Bigstep DataLab provides a highly secure environment with end-to-end
data encryption, granular permission control, and deep integration with
existing tools and services via an SQL-compatible interface.
