Partnership Expands Concurrent Market Opportunity into Storage for Analytics

ATLANTA, July 06, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Concurrent (NASDAQ:CCUR), a global leader in storage, protection, transformation and delivery of visual assets, and Alluxio, developers of the world's first system that unifies data at memory speed, today announced a joint solution that provides real-time data analytics and machine learning to help service providers analyze viewers' preferences and video consumption patterns.

The joint solution brings together Concurrent's Aquari(TM) Storage platform with Alluxio Enterprise Edition (AEE) to provide a faster and more scalable alternative for Hadoop users than the Hadoop Distributed File System (HDFS). This combination allows service providers to quickly extract and analyze vast amounts of data that were previously discarded as useless, helping to identify actionable insights and discover new revenue and customer retention opportunities. 

"It is imperative that media service providers have the tools and resources they need to deliver content and take advantage of market opportunities immediately and without limitation," said Haoyuan Li, CEO at Alluxio. "By combining Alluxio's virtual distributed storage system with Concurrent Aquari scale-out storage, service providers will be able to deliver instantaneous information essential for targeted advertising and optimized content libraries, thereby growing revenue while keeping operational expenses under control."

Alluxio provides a unified view of enterprise data that spans disparate storage systems, locations and clouds, allowing any big data computational framework to access stored data at memory speed. Alluxio runs critical workloads for numerous Global 2000 companies that include Baidu, Barclay's Bank, CERN, ESRI, Huawei, Intel, and Juniper, among others.

Concurrent Aquari Storage is a modern, intelligent storage system that features simultaneous support for multiple file- or object-based workloads. Built on a true scale-out architecture, Aquari Storage seamlessly and independently scales throughput and capacity. This translates into increased flexibility and scalability to better manage growing visual asset libraries and the applications that process them.

"Concurrent has been providing tier-one service providers around the globe with high-availability storage solutions for decades," said Scott Ryan, Senior Vice President, Products at Concurrent. "By partnering with Alluxio, we are able to further enhance the availability and personalization of the services that our customers offer their end-users. This joint solution provides critical insight into how and when media is consumed and ensures that service providers can take advantage of real-time analysis at memory speed."
