Levyx Upgrades Xenon™ to Be Fully Compatible With Kubernetes

IRVINE, Calif., Jan. 31, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Levyx Inc., whose high-performance, ultra-low latency data processing software dramatically reduces Big Data infrastructure complexity and costs, announced that the company’s Xenon™ product, a distributed real-time analytics engine, is now Kubernetes-ready. Kubernetes is an open-source platform designed to automate deploying, scaling, and operating application containers, while Xenon is a low latency, scalable data analytics solution designed to access very large datasets spread across a tightly coupled cluster of servers, each with multi-terabyte persistent storage capabilities.  

Now that Xenon is fully compatible with the Kubernetes deployment model, Xenon users can take advantage of (i.e. perform analysis on) persistent dataframes while leveraging the same resource manager and monitoring platforms as their current applications. Xenon uses an abstraction layer called “distributed storage class memory” that allows Big Data applications to access the data as if it is in a very large persistent, highly available, indexed, memory pool. This immediately brings high availability and persistence to large working sets that are processed by Big Data platforms like Apache Spark. This also gets Xenon closer to being deployable in a “cloud native” infrastructure.

Reza Sadri, CEO of Levyx, said: “Our Kubernetes integration is yet another significant advancement by our team in our continual effort to make Xenon and our other products as readily-deployable as possible. Kubernetes is fundamentally changing the way applications get deployed in containerized environments. Fundamentally, the objectives of our technologies are well-aligned; we both contribute to the ecosystem of components and tools that relieve the burden of running applications in public and private clouds.”

Levyx software technologies are hardware-independent and serve as enhancements to many of the world’s most popular Big Data platforms including RocksDB, Apache Spark, LevelDB, and Memcached. Levyx’s core Helium™ data engine is optimized for flash, storage class memory, and multi-core systems. Xenon represents the evolution of Helium because, while Helium was already the fastest object store, Xenon’s architecture make performance even faster by getting closer to bare metal performance.
