The need to simplify on-premise deployment is a major obstacle to Hadoop deployment. BlueData enables organizations to take advantage of the simplicity of cloud deployment and the efficiencies of multi-tenant operations on-premise.


  • BlueData’s EPIC platform is designed to enable enterprises to implement Hadoop in a multi-tenanted virtualized environment on-premise, gaining the simplicity of cloud deployment and the greater cluster utilization that can come with shared resources.
  • BlueData is targeting use cases from organizations whose policies would otherwise limit or prohibit deployment in a public cloud, or organizations seeking to limit cluster sprawl when adding new user groups or test/development environments.
  • While BlueData has no direct competition today, database, enterprise storage, and cloud service providers offer capabilities that already overlap, or potentially overlap, with its platform.
