EMC announces enhanced Greenplum big data analytics appliance
Posted on 4-Feb-2013 12:00. | Tags Filed under: News.

EMC Corporation has enhanced its appliance-based unified Big Data analytics offering, the EMC Greenplum Data Computing Appliance (DCA), with a redesign of its analytics-optimised, scalable systems that are used for statistical analysis, predictive modelling and machine learning.

The new EMC Greenplum Data Computing Appliance (DCA) Unified Analytics Platform (UAP) Edition analytics appliance enables analysis of both structured and unstructured data together within a single integrated appliance. The new DCA integrates Greenplum Databases for analytics-optimised SQL, Greenplum HD for Hadoop-based processing and Greenplum partner business intelligence, ETL, and analtyics applications within a single appliance. The integrated solution greatly expands the system’s analtyics capabilities and solution flexibility at a fraction of the total cost of ownership of competitive “product portfilio” strategies from Oracle, IBM or Teradata.

The new DCA offers the power of a massively parallel processing (MPP) architecture, while delivering the fastest data-loading rate and the best price/performance ratio in the industry—without the complexity and constraints of proprietary hardware. It delivers 70+ percent performance gains over the prior generation for data loading and scanning, and 100 percent performance increases for concurrent query workloads, maintaining Greenplum’s standing as the industry’s leading analytics performance for large, mixed workloads. Enterprises can grow their DCAs as their demand for processing capacity grows or as their analytics requirement evolves.

The Greenplum DCA provides increased system and data availability through simple integration with EMC’s storage solutions. Integrating the DCA with EMC Data Domain deduplication storage systems provides backup and recovery for Greenplum Database modules at rates up to 13 TB/hour, with services for wide-area replication for enhanced disaster recovery.

The new DCA provides both HDFS triple-redundant storage on direct-attach devices, as well as integration with EMC Isilon Scale-out NAS to provide HDFS storage that also provides data protection using snapshots, mirroring, backup, recovery and replication. Isilon also simplifies data loading and permits independent scaling of compute and storage resources. Using Data Domain and Isilon, EMC customers can leverage their existing expertise and investments to assure enterprise data protection as they move into big data analytics.
