FREMONT, Calif., September 8, 2014 – Cloudwick, the leading big data production scale-out consulting and services provider to the Fortune 1000, today announced record company growth in 2014. The company has achieved record people and service growth in 2014 and will surpass 100 consultants and $10 million in big data service revenue.
“After four years of month over month revenue and consultant growth, I’m pleased to announce three Cloudwick corporate growth milestones,” said Mani Chhabra, Cloudwick CEO. “First, Cloudwick has doubled in size this year and is now more than 75 big data production scale-out operations consultants who build, operate and manage the largest Cloudera, Hortonworks, MapR and DataStax clusters in the United States. Second, Cloudwick’s big data operations services team crossed 125,000 hours of production management with more than 10,000 nodes of Hadoop and NoSQL under support for our Fortune 1000 clients. And third, Cloudwick achieved record people and service growth in 2014 and will surpass 100 consultants and $10 million in big data service revenue.”
Cloudwick’s growth is necessitated by industry demand for its highly proficient experts and the trust the company has earned from its Fortune 1000 customers.

Cloudwick provides Fortune 1000 companies with administrators, developers, solution architects and data scientists who can build, operate and manage Cloudera, Hortonworks, MapR and DataStax big data clusters.”
