Boeing Updates Twister 'Big Data' Software; Jonathan Moneymaker Comments

BoeingLogoBoeing’s defense, space and security unit has launched an update to its Twister Data Framework software aimed at helping users manage and access large amounts of data in a cloud environment.

Twister 3.7.4 is designed to support workloads through elastic computing and load balancing in cloud and clustered file systems, the company said Wednesday.

The updated version also supports open-source software and reports performance bottlenecks to system administrators, according to Boeing.

“Finding decision-quality information in a massive amount of data is the ‘big data’ challenge that all of our customers face,” said Jonathan Moneymaker, Boeing intelligence systems group director.

Moneymaker said the company aims to help customers adjust to an evolving cloud environment and gain an information advantage.
