Robin Cloud Platform announced as the First and Only Container Solution certified to run Hortonworks Data Platform (HDP)
Robin Systems, the only container-based Application-Defined Infrastructure (ADI) software provider, announced today that Robin Cloud Platform is the First and Only container solution that has been certified to run Hortonworks Data Platform (HDP) solution. Robin Cloud Platform significantly simplifies the deployment, management and consolidation of the containerized Hortonworks Data Platform (HDP) solution; on-premise or in the cloud.

"Hortonworks recognizes the multiple benefits of Docker container technologies when compared to virtual machines and how Robin Cloud Platform best enables the use of Containers for complex data-heavy pipelines. Since Robin was the first Container solution to be tested for HDP certification, we dedicated our own QA team to put Robin Cloud Platform's HDP support through a rigorous suite of tests across all components and aspects of our platform. Hortonworks is excited about this collaboration and looks forward to working with Hortonworks support subscribers who choose the Robin Cloud Platform for their HDP deployment." said Scott Andress, Vice President, Global Channels & Alliances, Hortonworks. 

Unlike other solutions in the market that target only container orchestration, Robin Cloud Platform addresses the entire application IO path - a more complete view allowing application workflows to auto-configure the compute, network, storage layers. This is a key differentiation in supporting data-intensive applications like Hortonworks HDP that require fine tuning of all infrastructure layers to get the best performance and reliability. Robin's architecture enables IT teams to meet the most demanding requirements for SLAs and performance isolation between HDP services even in a shared infrastructure environment, while letting development and scientific user teams enjoy an app-store experience with 1-click self-service workflows to deploy, scale and manage HDP clusters.

Robin's architecture differentiation also applies to all Big-Data, NoSQL and RDBMS applications like Cassandra, MongoDB, Oracle, MySQL, Postgres, IBM-Db2 and SAP-HANA. In fact, Robin Cloud Platform has the broadest support of enterprise data apps in the market, is the only solution that lets you share resources across multiple applications and users while guaranteeing performance isolation and the only solution that slashes deployment, as well as management times from days to minutes.

"We are honored to be the first and only Hortonworks' certified partner designed and optimized for container technology. We specifically architected Robin Cloud Platform for complex distributed applications like HDP that need much more than just Docker containers with storage plugin in order to meet production deployment and support requirements. I am happy to see this validated by Hortonworks testing as this is good peace of mind for our customers deploying HDP atop Robin Cloud Platform." said Premal Buch, CEO of Robin Systems.

Robin Cloud Platform is a Container-based pure software solution that sits between the application and the infrastructure and enables 1-click application workflows for the user by letting the applications auto-configure storage, compute and networking across on-premise and cloud-based environments. It has REST APIs and hooks to interface with the rest of the ecosystem and requires no changes to the applications.

Robin also offers two Free editions: 1. 5-Day Free Trial with unlimited scale, scope and a full feature set, and 2. Free for life Community Edition (CE) with a full feature set with up to five Amazon (NASDAQ: AMZN) AMIs of any type or size.
