EMC announced the launch of the EMC Greenplum Modular
Data Computing Appliance (DCA), a complete Big Data analytics platform.
Greenplum DCA features a modular architecture that allows
enterprises to combine a shared-nothing MPP relational database with enterprise-class
Apache Hadoop – along with Greenplum partner BI and ELT applications – to
achieve structured and unstructured data co-processing, and expand it as needed
in a single, unified platform.
DCA modules enable enterprises to change how they think about
scaling by providing the ability to start small and expand the appliance in
more flexible and cost-effective quarter-rack increments based on processing
performance or storage capacity needs.
In addition to mixing and matching Greenplum Database and
Greenplum HD (Hadoop) modules, enterprises can also bring all their BI
applications and ELT tools directly into the cluster, in the same DCA, through
the use of new Greenplum Data Integration Accelerator modules. The result is a
unified Big Data platform combining structured and unstructured data and
applications in a single infrastructure that is also monitored, managed and
supported by EMC.
Today, enterprises are seeking to make better use of
their data warehouses for advanced analytics, and this trend will accelerate as
organizations strive to move from running business intelligence point solutions
to deploying comprehensive analytics enterprise-wide.
At the same time, enterprises are placing greater
importance on integrating and analyzing their accumulation of their
unstructured and semi-structured data. But as data warehouses get bigger,
enterprises are facing scalability, performance degradation and management
complexity, and are seeking ways to enable more concurrent users to access the
data for business applications.
Greenplum’s unique approach to Big Data analytics is
resonating with a growing number of large enterprise customers in the
financial, healthcare, and media industries who are planning for the future and
have adopted our technology to make fundamental changes in their overall data
infrastructure in order to tackle these Big Data issues. Today’s
announcement reflects our shift to a focus on building the analytics platform
of the future, and we have had great success with that as enterprises adopt and
validate our vision of data coprocessing,” Bill Cook, president and general
manager of Greenplum, a division of EMC.
