Co-Founder and CEO: Phu Hoang
DataTorrent develops an enterprise-class, real-time streaming analytics platform that provides a way for users to process, monitor, analyze and act on data instantaneously. The company says its Hadoop-based DataTorrent RTS system is capable of processing hundreds of millions -- even 1 billion -- events per second.
For many businesses one of the biggest challenges with big data is latency -- or working with streaming data such as stock trades. Co-founder and CEO Phu Hoang, who helped oversee the development of Hadoop while at Yahoo, saw the potential for a product like Data Torrent RTS. The Santa Clara, Calif.-based startup, launched in 2012, debuted DataTorrent RTS in June and followed that up in October with RTS 2.0.
