Web Hosting ToolboxST. LOUIS – Connectria Hosting, a global managed and cloud hosting provider, today announced its partnership alliance with Brightlight Consulting, a strategic consulting firm with highly specialized expertise in Business Intelligence, Data Warehousing, Big Data, and Cloud-Based Analytics.

Under the exclusive alliance, Connectria and Brightlight will enable customers to implement scalable IBM Netezza® solutions in the Cloud using a monthly pay-as-you-go model. The Connectria and Brightlight Netezza Cloud solution will allow customers to realize the many benefits of an industry-leading IBM Netezza solution without requiring a significant upfront capital expenditure. An expert in Big Data Analytics solutions and IBM’s premier Netezza consulting partner, Brightlight will provide the strategic guidance, best practices, and management services to assist customers in implementing a complete Business Intelligence solution, while Connectria will provide the hosting of the IBM PureData System, powered by Netezza.

IBM’s PureData® System for Analytics utilizes Netezza technology to deliver a powerful data appliance for large-scale, high-performance enterprise analytics. Netezza technology simplifies and optimizes performance of data services for analytic applications, enabling very complex algorithms to run in just minutes, rather than hours. Brighlight’s deep knowledge of Netezza, as well the broader spectrum of BI and Analytics solutions available today, helps customers maximize their return on investment by fully optimizing their technology platform with all other components of their infrastructure. With Connectria’s strong expertise and background in hosting IBM platforms, including the IBM PureSystem®, the Brightlight and Connectria alliance delivers a best-of-breed Cloud BI solution for customers worldwide.

”Unlocking the power of Netezza in the cloud with a world-class hosting provider like Connectria is extremely exciting,” stated Brightlight Consulting CTO David Overcash. “We are looking forward to bringing our analytics and Big Data expertise to additional markets, helping companies drive tremendous business value from the power of data.”

“We are very pleased and excited about our alliance with Brightlight Consulting,” noted Rich Waidmann, Connectria President and CEO. “Through our partnership, customers may now run Big Data Analytics in the Cloud without the Big Data price tag and investment.”

Brightlight Consulting and Connectria will be promoting their Big Data Analytics Cloud at the Information On Demand 2013 Conference (IOD) from November 3rd through 6th at Mandalay Bay, Las Vegas, Nevada, booth #228-1.
