Pepperdata, a leader in Apache Hadoop performance optimization, has announced that Opower, a leader in cloud-based software for the utility industry, has deployed Pepperdata Supervisor, a real-time cluster optimizer, to ensure its production Hadoop environment can scale to hundreds of billions of data points reliably, efficiently and on time.
Opower’s multi-tenant Hadoop environment currently supports more than 95 utility partners and their customers, as well as its internal data scientists and other users. With the daily ingest of hundreds of millions of meter reads, as well as third-party data feeds and event data, the company found it increasingly challenging to rely on Hadoop to deliver consistent service for its growing user base with differing jobs, priorities and data sets. Chang and his team needed to ensure the reliability of their system without implementing policies like gating users or breaking up clusters.
Pepperdata has allowed Opower to address these and other key challenges that organizations face when they scale Hadoop in multi-tenant production environments. Interactive dashboards give Opower unprecedented visibility into their clusters, thanks to Pepperdata’s unique software that monitors and controls detailed hardware usage in real time, allowing administrators to quickly isolate the source of performance bottlenecks and take remedial action.
