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.
"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.
