Companies demand more from data and analytics, but lack the infrastructure, people and resources they need to deliver meaningful results. At the same time, many want to take advantage of diverse new data sources, as well as leverage the latest analytics, open source and cloud technologies. Now there's a solution. 

Cazena makes it easy to access data and analytics the cloud in just a few clicks, automating an otherwise long and difficult process. Cazena bundles cloud databases, analytics engines, data movers, security and a variety of tools in the first fully-managed Big Data Platform as a Service, available on Microsoft Azure and Amazon Web Services (AWS). Instead of learning and managing many different technologies, companies use Cazena to collect, store and analyze data.

The platform combines best-of-breed software with automation, open source, custom components, security and additional services. That makes Cazena the fastest path to production-grade cloud deployments on Microsoft Azure and AWS of: Cloudera EDH for Spark, Hadoop and Impala workloads; AWS Redshift and MPP SQL databases (Greenplum, etc); and, RStudio Server Pro.

  • Cost-effective, using automation and intelligence to collapse complex tasks into a few easy clicks in a browser, and automatically optimizing to deliver the best price-performance. Everything is included in one subscription, with predictable pricing for expansion. 
  • Fully-managed, means 24 x 7 premium monitoring and support, with high-touch expert support (not just email). We handle everything else: operations, upgrades, patching…

It is the Cazena team, customers and partners that perhaps make the biggest difference.  Cazena is transforming enterprise data and analytics in the cloud by using intelligence and automation.
