VIDEO: HP’s Big Data heaven: Haven OnDemand


HP has a heaven where Big Data goes to live, called HP Haven OnDemand, which the company says is ‘an important milestone in its Big Data strategy that gives organisations of all sizes cloud-based access to key components of HP’s world class analytics platform.’

Does Big Data end up in Helion or Haven? When you’re with HP, the answer is both, with HP’s new Haven OnDemand solution, running on its Helion Cloud, enabling its ‘customers to analyse all forms of data, including business data, machine data, and unstructured, human information.’

Developers aren’t forgotten, as they ‘can also leverage this innovative web service, as well as engage with a robust and growing community to create next-generation applications and services.’

“For a recent hackathon event, we utilised HP’s Haven OnDemand platform to produce several innovative new applications over an incredibly short amount of time.
