Canonical is excited to welcome NFLabs to the Charm Partner Programme. The Charm Partner Programme enables Independent Software Vendors (ISVs) to use the full power of Juju, the award-winning cloud services modelling and application abstraction tool from Canonical.
Juju is for IT architects, administrators, devops, developers, data scientists and, generally speaking, anyone interacting with applications in any way. Juju lets you model, provision, deploy, maintain, and scale applications and complex microservices-based architecture through the use of Charms. Charms are a sets of scripts that model the lifecycle and integration of specific services. They can be written in any language or leverage configuration management tools.
NFLabs is leading the transformation of big data analytics by providing an extensible, pluggable, and open interface in the form of Apache Zeppelin (incubating). By supporting most modern compute frameworks such as Apache Spark and Flink, Apache Zeppelin (incubating) is fast becoming the standard big data visualization interface to explore and conduct deep data analysis. Enterprises can then share these visual notebooks through ZeppelinHub, which NFLabs will be charming, providing their teams a common platform to share and collaborate analytics publicly and privately.
“Big data platforms are infamously difficult to deploy and manage. Juju helps to alleviate this. So it was a natural progression to have ZeppelinHub charmed as Zeppelin is becoming the defacto interface for all big data frameworks,” said Sejun Ra, Founder and CEO of NFLabs.
“Both Juju and NFLabs’ products were created out of the need to simplify the workflow for modern devops. ZeppelinHub will be an excellent addition to the growing Juju big data ecosystem, “ said Stefan Johannson, Global Software Alliances Director.
