Business Impact

Time and Cost Savings

Qoobah is a proven platform born of Gruter's many years of data system development and management experience. Carefully designed to be fast, powerful, efficient and cost-effective, Qoobah gives you the system you need at the right price without sacrificing performance. As a pre-packaged working system, installation and configuration is all that is required to have your own Big Data system up and running and meeting your computing requirements. What’s more, the system utilizes x86 commodity machines and open-source software components, giving the platform a familiar feel at an affordable cost.

Working hard in the field since 2006

Gruter has partnered with many clients including Samsung to design, build and manage Big Data systems based on our in-house platform, Qoobah. Operating Hadoop clusters since 2006, Gruter has worked hard to optimize the platform to ensure every advantage and cost saving has been integrated into a single high-performance unit without sacrificing the flexibility needed for wide-ranging applications.

Use Case 1 Recommendation system for shopping mall or advertising system

Imagine you want to build a high performance recommendation system for a major e-commerce property. The recommendation system requires ongoing improvements and tweaks based on predetermined algorithms and user analytics. After running a few calculations on your model it quickly becomes apparent that the volume of real-time transactions, web log data and user information you need to handle to implement your recommendation model is enormous. Bigger numbers than you’ve seen a traditional system handle before. You quickly realize you need a new generation data system specifically constructed to process numbers that big. You turn to Qoobah to help you find, extract and generate a training data set containing near real-time user trends across tens of millions of transactions per hour.

Use Case 2 Abnormal Transaction and Fraud Detection Security System

Imagine you want to build a security system to detect attacks or attempted attacks on your system and applications. As your applications and domains vary and are highly distributed, collecting and analyzing data from such a complex computing environment is the first challenge you face. Running analyses on huge volumes of incoming data in real-time or near real-time is the second major challenge you have to deal with. You turn to Qoobah because it enables you to gather data from hundreds of distributed servers and allows you to run analyses at three time settings: real-time, near real-time and batch.

Use Case 3 Extraction Transformation Loading (ETL) for existing Business Information System

Your business is growing and you have explosively increasing data from your production line sensors. Your existing ETL and BI solutions have performed well until recent months. Faced with capacity limitations, exponential scale-out costs and costly downtime, you realize that you’ve hit a snag. Your turn to Qoobah because it scales with minimum downtime and provides a seamless and cost-effective move to expanded capacity thanks to the scalability of Qoobah’s Hadoop architecture and clever design based on the use of commodity x86 machines and open-source software.
