The ClusterGX™ vAppliance platform is made up of several discrete components which in combination provide the most complete end-to-end big data solution on the market today. ClusterGX™ uniquely combines the functions of a scalable Enterprise Data Hub (the Spark/Hadoop/Kafka etc. processing engine) with an automated data ingestion tool (DataEnchilada™), an embedded application store (the AppHub™) and a generic Artifical Intelligence engine (DeepEasy™). Within a single platform it is possible to set-up the processing clusters, ingest and auto-classify data and then launch applications to analyse and visualize the data, all using a single intuitive user-interface. With our myopic focus on cost reduction and ease-of-use, big data business intelligence is now an option for every business.
ClusterGX™ vAppliance Platform Components
ClusterGX™ Enterprise Hub
The ClusterGX™ Enterprise Hub is the underlying data engine upon which the ClusterGX™ platform and its various component pieces are supported. ClusterGX™ Enterprsie Hub is based on the same powerful & broadly adopted open source technologies that successfully drive big data deployments at the world's largest businesses. The ClusterGX™ Enterprise Hub is a big data platform that hides the underlying open source complexity.
The AppHub™ Integrated AppStore
The AppHub™ is an AppStore embedded within the UI of the ClusterGX™ platform. The AppHub™ provides direct access to thousands of open source and commercial tools and applications which can further enhance the analysis and visualization of data ingested into the platform. The AppHub™ provides an easy mechanism for searching through the available applications and a point-and-click launch mechanism.
DataEnchilada™ Data Ingestion
DataEnchilada™ is a mechanism for automating ingestion of data from popular on-premise and cloud based data sources such as Oracle, MySQL, Twitter, MixPanel, log files or any others as needed. Static or streaming data is ingested into the ClusterGX™ platform where the embedded artifical intelligence engine (DeepEasy™) will auto-classify incoming streams and immediately make them available for analysis.
DeepEasy™ Artificial Intelligence Engine
DeepEasy™ is a Machine-Learning and Artificial Intelligence engine embedded within the heart of the ClusterGX™ platform. Using self-learning algorithms, DeepEasy™ is able to analyze large volumes of streaming data from disparate data sources and make data classification decisions without user input. With additional tuning DeepEasy™ can be optimized to provide a specific type of feedback from almost any data source.

AI-Powered Data Ingestion with DataEnchilada™
A big data platform is nothing without data to process. ClusterGX™ allows manual data ingestion but also integrates its own data ingestion tool – DataEnchiliada™. Designed specifically to simplify and accelerate the process of data ingestion, DataEnchiliada™ utilizes an easy set-up wizard to make ingestion of data from common on-premise and cloud data sources straightforward. Whether it is local log files, SQL databases, Twitter, Facebook, MixPanel, HTTP feeds or others yet to be added – DataEnchiliada™ ingests both static and streaming traffic. DataEnchilada™ is the first application to take advantage of Galactic’s proprietary Artificial-Intelligence engine (DeepEasy™) built into the heart of ClusterGX™. Using AI, DataEnchilada™ self-classifies incoming data streams and makes them immediately available for query.
Automated Data Ingestion Tool
- Easily ingest popular on-premise and cloud data sources
- Ingest both static and streaming data sources
- AI engine auto-classifies data for easier analysis
- Data immediately ready for query – no coding required
Single-Click App Launch – BI and Visualization Tools Made Easy
Analytics, Visualization and other Business Intelligence applications can either be installed manually, or launched by a single-click through the integrated AppHub™ in the ClusterGX™ dashboard. The AppHub™ provides curated access to thousands of containerized applications (both Big Data and non-Big Data apps) from repositories such as Github and Docker Hub, all of which can be launched directly from the AppHub™ onto ClusterGX™. In addition, there are selected commercial applications being integrated into the AppHub™ which can also be launched with a single click. Just like a smartphone, the AppHub™ makes finding and launching applications a breeze.
Easy Application Launch
- Integrated Application Store – the AppHub™
- One-click application deployment
- Links directly to 1000s of open source apps
- Includes commercial big data apps
Management Made Easy with CloudManager
Wherever you choose to run ClusterGX™, on-premise or on AWS, Galactic Exchange provides CloudManager, a service to deliver cloud management of your platform. Wherever you can access a web browser you can access and manage any number of ClusterGX™ deployments – with a single login. See all of your ClusterGX™ deployments in one place and drill down to manage each as required. The look and feel of your on-premise and AWS deployments is identical, further streamlining operational running.
CloudManager – Unique ClusterGX™ Cloud Management
- Manage multiple ClusterGX™ deployments with a single login
- Manage ClusterGX™ On-premise and on AWS concurrently with an identical UI
- Access CloudManager from anywhere you have a web browser
The ClusterGX™ Full-Service Package
Whilst both free and paid versions of ClusterGX™ are available on a "per-node, per-annum" basis (see the various Edition options in the table below) our Full-Service package offers the most compelling value proposition for businesses who need a helping hand to get insight from their data.
ClusterGX™ Full-Service is exactly how it sounds - a white-glove big data service based on our Enterprise Edition, where we do the heavy lifting. By doing the actual work for you, we will show and teach you how to collect your data, clean it, store it, search it, analyze and visualize it, as well as providing 24/7 monitoring and support.
Full-Service is available on-premise or on Amazon AWS. For Amazon we can deploy on your own instances or we can build an AWS deployment for you and deliver that as a managed service. We even have a mechanism for automatically turning off AWS instances when they are not being used to save you money.
ClusterGX™ Full-Service starts at $19,995 per-annum for a cluster of upto 25 nodes*. Larger clusters are also supported.
If you are interested in a Full-Service package please feel free to contact us here.
