Cloudwick Honored with Prestigious DataStax Partner Enablement Award

Cloudwick’s Experience with Fortune 1000 Customers Indicates that 2014 is

Breakout Year for Cassandra Scale-out

SAN FRANCISCO, Calif., Cassandra Summit, September 11, 2014 – Cloudwick, the leading big data production scale-out consulting and services provider to the Fortune 1000, today announced that it is the proud recipient of the first DataStax Partner Enablement Award. The award was presented at the company’s Cassandra Summit Partner Reception event on Tuesday evening at the Westin St. Francis in San Francisco.


The award represents DataStax’s recognition of partners like Cloudwick for their excellence and commitment to building DataStax Enterprise solutions delivery services for the Fortune 1000.


“Cloudwick has quickly proven to be a key member of the DataStax Partner Network, enabling seamless production Cassandra deployments for our customers,” said John Schweitzer, EVP of worldwide field operations, DataStax. “Cloudwick provides DataStax clients with an exceptional experience building, operating, and managing big data systems.”


“We are honored to be recognized by DataStax with this award, which demonstrates our commitment to enabling Fortune 1000 companies to achieve Cassandra production scale-out,” said Mani Chhabra, CEO of Cloudwick. “This is a breakout year for Cassandra, on par with what Hadoop was last year for the Fortune 1000. It’s obvious the enterprise is embracing DataStax to replace SQL and Oracle databases, which simply cannot provide global Internet availability or scalability.”


The award comes on the heels of Cloudwick’s recent announcement (September 8, 2014) of record people and service growth in 2014. In addition, Cloudwick’s big data operations services team surpassed 125,000 hours of production management with more than 10,000 nodes of Hadoop and Cassandra under support for its Fortune 1000 clients.
