After ten years of vigorous development, big data technology represented by Hadoop and Spark has grown from a hot spot into a powerful data architecture technology that reliably servers a large number of enterprises. The development of big data technology is in a flourishing stage in which technologies such as data analysis, machine learning and artificial intelligence are rapidly changing the way people think and decide, motivating data-driven technological to change. With the further expansion of the big data technology stack, an increasing number of enterprise-level users are willing to select big data technology to build their IT architecture, benefiting from the bonuses brought by big data techs.
However, as the application of big data tech goes broader, problems in open source big data products have been gradually exposed. Drawbacks like high entry barrier, complex maintenance, low stability cause the confidence held by enterprises in big data technology drops. To overcome the weakness of open source products, Transwarp Technology has put considerable focus on the development and productization of underlying big data technology since 2013. After going through hundreds of practical deployment, TDH has made tremendous breakthroughs in aspects of product features, performance and stability. Transwarp big data platform is highly productized, significantly reducing the entry barrier, so that enterprises can easily launch business innovation without having to form heavy professional IT teams any longer. At present, more than 500 organizations have successfully completed their data system construction based on Transwarp Data Hub (TDH) , and achieved stable on-line operation.
To better satisfy the requirements of more enterprises, and as a feedback to technical community, Transwarp determines to shoulder the social responsibility of enterprises, and organize core functions of the commercial TDH into TDH community edition (TDH-CE) and released it for free to the public, rendering essential advantages of Transwarp big data to more developers.
- Graphical deployment, maintenance and development, lowering the technical requirements and projects expenses.
- Build database as a product, making it possible for common users to use big data technology without the help of the professional.
- Hundreds of testings by projects in production shape TDH into a stable, reliable and well-performed platform.
- Features cover data analysis, storage, query and mining, being able to complete the full process of application development.
- Provide the whole set of big data development tools, accelerating development efficiency.
- Offer convenient ways such as online upgrade, independent deployment to facilitate to obtain other products and in other versions.
- Provide professional after-sales support, and users using subscription edition can get 5x8 hours Transwarp official support.
- Be able to handle massive data that keeps constantly growing, and provide excellent error-tolerant capability.
TDH-CE can be installed in physical clusters, private clouds or public clouds. No matter which platform is adopted, through the application market any user can try out, purchase, or upgrade products locally.
