San Francisco, CA — April 14, 2014 — Talksum, Inc., a leader in high-speed data processing and management solutions, today announced it has won the Big Data Start Up Award given at the Big Data Innovation Summit, Santa Clara, CA. The award was based on the company’s mission and its flagship product, the Talksum Data Stream Router (TDSR), which helps IT and data centers manage Big Data for applications that require massive amounts of processing.
Talksum has taken a unique approach to real-time data management by combining the latest developments of hardware with efficient coding at the kernel level. The TDSR exceeds speeds necessary to handle Big Data initiatives of today and tomorrow, and processes millions of complex events per second (tens of billions of events per day) to keep pace with velocity. In addition, since it is a hardware-configured unit that fits into an existing rack, it simplifies the data management process and avoids the need for specialized skills and custom code, making it easy to monitor and analyze data in real time while reducing the cost of acquisition, ETL, and integration.
A Talksum Data Stream Router at the front of the data stream can replace hundreds of servers at the end of the data stream, reducing the overhead in terms of people, time, and infrastructure.
According to the Big Data Innovation Summit organizers, the Big Data Innovation Awards “recognize innovative achievements within the Big Data world. There are stories of success and triumph in the Big Data community. These innovative organizations deserve recognition and this Awards program is central to that process. It is about the organizations, their teams, and the individuals who make Big Data what it is today.”
“We are thrilled to be the recipient of this year’s Big Data Start Up Award. The Big Data Innovation Awards, as a whole, acknowledge organizations that have pioneered Big Data initiatives that have had an overall impact of the Big Data community at large,” said Alex Varshavsky, CEO of Talksum. “We are humbled to be in the same ranks as the larger known award winners of this year and of past years who have significantly contributed to the Big Data community.”
Other award winners at the Big Data Innovation Summit included Cisco, which received the Big Data Project Award, and YarcData, a Cray company, which was given the Big Data Tech Provider Award.
The Talksum Data Stream Router is in GA and currently shipping.
