Robin Systems Chosen by USAA for its Big Data Analytics Pipelines

Robin’s Application Defined Infrastructure solution enables USAA to improve efficiency and agility

SAN JOSE, Calif. – January 31st, 2018 – Robin Systems, the only container based Application-Defined Infrastructure (ADI) software provider, today announced that USAA has deployed Robin Platform to power its Big Data infrastructure.

“We chose Robin Platform because it allowed us to simplify and automate how our analytic pipeline is managed,” said Eric Smith, USAA Chief Data and Analytics Officer. “Our Big Data infrastructure has been growing dramatically, and we needed a solution that made it easy to manage and scale these applications that was also consistent with our cloud roadmap. Robin checked all these boxes, and we have been very pleased so far with the efficiency and agility improvements achieved with their platform.”

“It is an honor to be entrusted as the infrastructure platform for some of USAA’s mission-critical applications,” said Premal Buch, CEO of Robin Systems. “Robin Platform is now fully battle tested, certified and run in production scale. It is exciting to see growing adoption of our platform where customers start by adopting Robin for one flavor of NoSQL or Big-Data and expand their use into more applications and entire complex distributed pipelines as they experience the Robin benefits. “

Robin Platform is a Container-based pure software solution that sits between the application and the infrastructure and enables 1-click application workflows for the user by letting the applications auto-configure storage, compute and networking across on-premise and cloud based environments. It has REST APIs and hooks to interface with the rest of the ecosystem and requires no changes to the applications. Robin also offers a Free and Fully Featured Community Edition (CE) of its Cloud Platform for Enterprise Databases, Big-Data and NoSQL.  Download your copy with up to 5 nodes.

Enterprises applications designed for a specific on-premise or a specific cloud deployment can be hard to port since there is a strong dependency between application workflows and infrastructure. Compute, network and storage APIs vary dramatically across On-Premise and various clouds’ infrastructure stacks. Robin’s application aware compute, network and storage layers decouple applications and infrastructure so that the applications can be easily moved around and the infrastructure can be anywhere – on-premises, in AWS or in Azure. Robin lets you 1-Click extend or migrate entire application clusters across these boundaries, for any app – modern or legacy.
