Listing Brings Enterprise-Class Benefits of Alteryx Server to the Cloud
Irvine, CA — April 12, 2017 — Alteryx, Inc., a leader in self-service data analytics, today announced it is collaborating with Amazon Web Services (AWS) to virtualize the Alteryx Server platform and offer its robust data prep, blending and analytics solution in the cloud. Organizations can now quickly deploy Alteryx Server through AWS Marketplace as an on-demand, pay-as-you-go option. This collaboration builds on the existing integration of Alteryx with Amazon Redshift, and support for Amazon Aurora and Amazon Simple Storage Service (Amazon S3), empowering analysts to quickly consume big data and deliver key business insights.
"Modern organizations are finding significant benefits by moving the consumption of analytics to the cloud," said Bob Laurent, Vice President of Product Marketing at Alteryx. "Our collaboration with Amazon Web Services allows organizations to deploy our Alteryx Server platform in the cloud within minutes, while maintaining the enterprise-class security and scalability of our popular on-premises solution. This gives organizations a choice for how they want to quickly share critical business insights with others in their organization."
Alteryx Server allows organizations to deploy and share analytics at scale, giving employees access to critical information so they can make data-driven decisions. Data analysts use Alteryx Designer to build repeatable workflows that prep, blend and analyze data, and can publish these workflows as analytical apps to Alteryx Server. Employees can browse the apps they have permission to run, and customize and execute these packaged workflows on demand, without having to disrupt the data analyst who originally created it.
The pre-configured version of Alteryx Server is available on AWS Marketplace, providing a quick and easy way to deploy Alteryx Server in a cloud environment. As an alternative, existing Alteryx Server customers can spin up computing resources on AWS, and then install Alteryx Server using their existing license. Both options eliminate the need for any in-house hardware and on-going maintenance, saving days or even weeks of work by IT staff. Organizations that wish to try Alteryx Server before purchasing may take advantage of the Alteryx Server Amazon Machine Image (AMI) Pilot Program, which gives access to a combination of AWS resources and the Alteryx Server AMI for up to 60 days.
"Using Alteryx Server on AWS has allowed us to quickly and easily overcome a variety of infrastructure challenges at a low cost, including scale-up, scale-down, back-up, restoration and failover," said Joe Emison, CIO of Xceligent, a leading provider of commercial real estate data. "Set up and configuration has been significantly simplified, and time-to-insight greatly accelerated."
"As the need for data-driven insights becomes a business imperative, customers are looking for tools that provide easy access to self-service analytics," said Barry Russell, General Manager, Global Business Development, AWS Marketplace and Catalog Services, Amazon Web Services, Inc. "By listing their offering on AWS Marketplace, Alteryx gives customers an option for bringing powerful analytics to users in a variety of roles, which can be quickly and easily deployed in the AWS Cloud."
