Company recognized for the only transactional SQL-on-Hadoop database

San Francisco, CA – May 31, 2013 – Splice Machine, who provides the only transactional SQL-on-Hadoop database, today announced that it has been named to UBM Tech Channel’s inaugural CRN 2013 Big Data 100 list. The award recognizes companies innovating in Big Data technology and covers three categories: business analytics, data management and infrastructure and services. Splice Machine was honored amongst 24 other data management companies for enabling application developers to build real-time interactive web, mobile and social applications that truly scale — leveraging the ubiquity of SQL tools and skill sets in the marketplace.

“The 2013 Big Data 100 list recognizes vendors that have shown a dedication to the innovation and advancement of today’s Big Data services, and have evolved to meet the needs of today’s business leaders,” said Kelley Damore, senior vice president and editorial director, CRN. “Companies need technologies that not only help them process and manage all that data, but also offer market insights. The Big Data 100 vendors set themselves apart with the cutting edge products and services that provide significant growth opportunities for solution providers to build their business and effectively compete in today’s information economy.”

Built on the proven Hadoop and HBase stack, the Splice SQL Engine™ offers the same scalability benefits as NoSQL without having to rewrite SQL-based applications and business analytics tools. In addition, it scales to handle business intelligence and analysis, and works turnkey with tools like MicroStrategy® and Tableau®.

“We have entered a new era where people, machines, and devices are generating more data than ever before, and application developers have a critical need for a new breed of database that offers massive scalability as well as real-time updates and transactions,” said Monte Zweben, CEO and co-founder of Splice Machine. “We are honored to be recognized by CRN as one of the top 25 data management companies in the Big Data space for our innovative transactional SQL-on-Hadoop database.”

Splice Machine raised $4 million in Series A funding from Mohr Davidow Ventures in October 2012 and has been using the funding to develop the Splice SQL Engine™ with a veteran software development team led by Zweben

Selected by CRN’s editorial staff, the 2013 Big Data 100 list was featured in the April issue of CRN Magazine and is featured online at www.crn.com.
