Stratio 0.9.1 release

Stratio 0.9.1 release

We are proud to announce that Stratio 0.9.1 release is currently available. On May 2014 Stratio achieved the major milestone of releasing the first  pure Spark and enterprise ready big data platform. But this was just the begining, the first step in a long journey. Just a couple  of months later a new release is ready including a large amount of new features and improvements. Here are some highlights:

First Apache Spark meetup

Stratio kicked off its first Apache Spark meetups earlier this month. Our friends and members of other groups on meetup joined in when we announced the group in Madrid.
Only 2 weeks later we celebrated our first Spark meetup. The expectation was unusually high. We counted 101 members on the group, 50 RVSP’d and 8 members on the waiting list. This surprised us because Spark only recently became an Apache project and it is yet to be widely known in the mainstream enterprise in the US, never mind in Europe.

A formidable 2013 year of a Big Data start-up

The first 12 months of a BigData venture

We will remember 2013 as the year when Stratio was born. The brainchild of Oscar Méndez, Nacho Cabrera, Julio Casal and a few others, Stratio was only a number of disconnected ideas just 12 months ago. Some of the best ones were discussed, sometimes quite passionately, at a number of weekly web conferences between Madrid and Palo Alto in the early months of the year.

Spark Summit 2013 – Stratio was in San Francisco

December 2nd 2013 was a great day for the Spark community: the first Spark Summit took place in San Francisco. The event confirmed Spark as one of the BigData tools with the highest adoption rate seen in the last years. The event hosted 450 professionals interested in this technology and showed the roadmap for the upcoming months.
