What is Cazena?

Cazena's flagship solution is the First Data Lake with a SaaS Experience. Cazena empowers enterprises to collect, store and analyze any data in the cloud, without any DevOps resources or admin time. Cazena's Data Lake as a Service includes everything, and is delivered as secure SaaS, ready to load, store and analyze data with any method: SQL, Spark, R, Python, and many more.

Turnkey SaaS Experience

Cazena provides a production-ready data immediately, delivered ready for data loading, storage and analytics. Each data lake is private, delivered on single-tenant cloud infrastructure from AWS and Microsoft Azure. Cazena's Data Lake as a Service combines data ingestion, cloud infrastructure, storage and compute, analytics engines, continuous optimization and fully-managed support into one solution. No development or admin work is ever required for production or ongoing operations (upgrades, etc.) 

Unified Data Lake, Continously Optimized for All Analytics

Cazena's fully-managed SaaS data lakes support all analytic workloads including data engineering, data science, machine learning, analytics, business intelligence and insight applications. The stack embeds best-of-breed technologies from Cloudera, Azure, AWS and others in single-tenant 'private data clouds,' optimized for your organization's workloads. Integrated workload intelligence and continuous optimization ensure enterprise SLAs and deliver the best price-performance on AWS or Azure. 

Self-Service, Plug-and-Query for All Analytics

Cazena provides hybrid-enabling software gateways and enterprise firewalls that simplify integration of our Data Lakes with existing data flows. Analysts can load data, use built-in analytics or connect any tools (ML, R, BI, etc.) via intuitive SaaS interfaces and secure sockets, without worrying about the complexity of the configuration of cloud, network, and services. Cazena's end-to-end architecture, automation and cloud gateway design reduces cloud security risks.

Highest-Grade Enterprise Security and Compliance

Cazena provides the highest level of security and compliance with a locked-down, encrypted cloud data lakes AWS or Azure. Each customer has a dedicated single-tenant environment, purpose-built for hybrid and enterprise expansions to the cloud. Certifications and enterprise-ready controls ensure that deployments are CSO-approved. In fact, Cazena is deployed within many regulated industries -- finance, insurance, pharma, multinationals -- due to a unique high-end security model. All solutions include 24x7 security and compliance monitoring, protecting against unauthorized access or data breaches.

24x7 White Glove Support & Production Operations Included

All ongoing production operations (such as upgrades, backup/recovery, DR, health monitoring) are included with Cazena's Data Lake as a Service, along with high-touch 24x7 support. Cazena provides a single-stop for support, with one point of contact. Cazena also provides the highest level of availability to ensure reliable enterprise-class service. Cazena runs on both AWS and Azure, reducing the risk of cloud lock-in and enabling new potentials for multi-cloud, disaster recovery and hybrid architectures. 

 

Compare the Alternatives

Cazena gives you everything you need for all analytics in one powerful, secure Data Lake with a SaaS experience. That’s unique.

In contrast, many services require you to bring and manage your own cloud infrastructure and security. Some want you to configure, attach -- and secure -- your own storage. Others require integrating many components, just to support a few analytics styles. Even cloud services like EMR and HDI require integration with existing data flows, adopting the correct security and monitoring controls and optimizing for your own workloads and price-performance. No thank you. 

Why do all that when you can choose a Data Lake as a Service instead? Cazena's is automated and managed, with a SaaS experience to accelerate outcomes.
