EMC updates Greenplum big data analytics appliance


A new edition of EMC's Greenplum Data Computing Appliance (DCA) handles structured and unstructured data in a single appliance.

The EMC Greenplum Data Computing Appliance Unified Analytics Platform (UAP) Edition combines Greenplum for SQL, Greenplum for Hadoop, and third-party products for BI, ETL and analytics.

The company claims a 70% (or better) improvement in data loading and scanning speeds, and a 100% improvement for concurrent queries. The system is said to be "a fraction of the total cost of ownership" of competing systems from IBM, Oracle or Teradata.

Other features of the UAP appliance include integration with EMC Data Domain deduplication storage systems and Isilon NAS.

"Enterprises looking to make strategic investments in a Big Data platform need to consider the breadth of capabilities required of a complete solution—high speed data ingestion, support for structured and unstructured data, interfaces for data scientists as well as business intelligence users, and the ability to scale horizontally as data volumes grow," said Josh Klahr, vice president of products at EMC's Greenplum division.

"With the release of the DCA Unified Analytics Platform Edition, we are continuing our history of innovation—with improved options for Hadoop deployments leveraging EMC Isilon's scale-out NAS storage, enhanced partner ecosystem support including such partners as SAS and Informatica."

Greenplum DCA UAP Edition is available immediately.
