Continuuity has announced the availability of Continuuity Reactor 2.0. Developers and businesses can quickly and easily build and deploy production Big Data apps on Continuuity Reactor 2.0. The latest version is designed for production enterprise apps with features that include MapReduce scheduling, Resource Isolation, High Availability and full support for REST APIs.

Continuuity Reactor 2.0 has been re-architected for performance, scalability and reliability. It increases developer productivity in the enterprise through a simplified programming framework and scalable runtime. Continuuity Reactor 2.0 enables all Java developers to quickly start building applications on Apache Hadoop and HBase, and removes the need to hire and retain expensive and hard to find, specialized Big Data engineers.

The platform takes advantage of YARN (Apache Hadoop 2.0), which allows developers to run data-rich applications with support for batch processing and real-time streaming capabilities in a single Hadoop cluster. Continuuity Reactor 2.0 enables developers to run an entire end-to-end application in one platform with an integrated web server.

"We have made significant improvements to our platform with the developer always in mind. We believe that the future of Big Data is applications. To realize that future, the power of Hadoop and HBase must be made accessible to all developers in a simple and intuitive way. Our 2.0 release puts the focus on your application logic, not on Hadoop, so that developers can create and deploy applications quickly and easily," said Jonathan Gray, CEO of Continuuity.
