Analytics, Data Science, ML Support
Connect Any Data or Analytics Tool Easily
Cazena makes it secure, flexible and easy to store and analyze data in the cloud. In a few web clicks, analysts connect to data securely with any visualization, analytics or business intelligence tool -- industry-standard or custom developed. Cazena can also be used with notebooks and interfaces for SQL, R, Python and advanced analytics. Everything is logged for governance and security. 
Deploy ML & Analytics Quickly with the AppCloud

The Cazena AppCloud helps teams deploy a wide range of machine learning (ML) and analytics applications in the cloud with instant access to enterprise data on the Cazena platform. Using the App Cloud delivers many performance, operational and security benefits – and accelerates time to results. Now teams don’t have to wait for infrastructure to deploy new capabilities. 

24x7 Production Operations

Cazena’s SaaS solutions are automated and fully-managed, so you can use the cloud with confidence. Cazena is monitored and supported 24 x 7 by our expert cloud team and security gurus. You automatically get the best price-performance for data and analytics workloads. You won’t need to assemble or integrate or configure or patch anything. You won’t need to manage multiple vendors and multiple billing models. 

Security, Encryption, Governance & Compliance

The most secure data lake, with a highly-differentiated cloud security model.

Each Cazena customer gets their own single-tenant “private data cloud," effectively a private section of Azure or AWS for your team only. Cazena's single-tenant environments are secure (Kerberized, etc.) and encrypt all data in motion and at rest by default. Cazena also manages staging and storage of data on object stores for a single point of data management. Everything is managed, monitored and logged to conform to strict compliance standards. Security is fundamental to Cazena. We have industry-leading compliance certifications, specialized software and unparalleled expertise. Read more about Cazena Security.


Data Ingestion and Tool Integration

Cazena includes Gateway Software, which manages access and facilitates data moves, adding security, encryption and compression automatically. Load data into Cazena from any connected enterprise or cloud sources – and keep it in one secure environment for team access.  The gateway is powerful enough to run in enterprise datacenters – and regularly passes muster with tough network and security guidelines. 

  • Plug & Play Enterprise Deployment: Cazena's Gateway software enables a "hybrid" (cloud + on-prem) big data architecture, by securely connecting Cazena to existing enterprise data sources, analytics tools and management processes. Cazena offers plug & play deployment, increasing time to value, agility and productivity.
  • Secure Data Ingest: Easily move data to and from Cazena from any sources anywhere, from on-prem Data Warehouses to cloud or SaaS applications. Authorized users can easily move smaller local datasets to the cloud from a web browser. Encryption, compression and logging are built-in for worry-free uploads and downloads.
Workload SLA Management & Optimization

Cazena's Workload & Pipeline SLA means that data professionals get reliable, predictable cloud performance for their analytics, with no troubleshooting required. Other services guarantee only cloud or cluster availability, but Cazena supports it all. End-to-end, top-to-bottom of the stack, services include ongoing workload management, optimization, cluster and cloud management, with 24x7 workload support.

Intelligent Optimization Means...
  • No special DevOps skills required to configure the cloud for different analytics tools; no wasted time troubleshooting
  • Different types of analytics workloads can be viably supported in one Cazena environment
  • Confidence that you're always getting the best price-performance for workloads...automatically 
Data & Analytics Workload Engines

It's fully-managed so you won't need any new cloud DevOps skills to setup or operate the platform. And it's guaranteed to work, in four weeks or less.
