AWS Cloud Pact Shows How Far Teradata Has Come

Oct 7, 2015 |

Next year, Teradata will offer its eponymous database as a service on the Amazon Web Services cloud. It will be the first foray onto a public cloud for Teradata, which has come a long way from its proprietary hardware roots. It wasn’t that long ago that all Teradata (NYSE: TDC) deployments required an investment in proprietary hardware by the customer. The company sold its flagship Teradata Database—desired by large companies for its fast analytic processing on large datasets—as a pre-configured Read more…

BI’s Inflection Point: The New Fast Data Exploration Mandate

Sep 30, 2015 |

Intel (INTC)’s Andy Grove famously wrote and spoke about the difference between ordinary change and a strategic inflection point (SIP) with significant impact to the health and survival of an organization. He defined strategic inflection points by the magnitude of impact on a business, quantifying them mathematically as a 10X change that the business has been accustomed to. Grove also noted that SIPs aren’t only technology driven, but can be precipitated by new or shifting competition, new channels of distribution, Read more…

Medical Insight Set to Flow from Semantic Data Lakes

Aug 26, 2015 |

The potential for data analytics to disrupt healthcare delivery is large, and getting larger by the day. But in many cases, the need to hammer data into a structured format creates a barrier to productivity. Now a hospital chain in New York City is hoping to change that by adopting a Hadoop-based semantic data lake. Located in the Bronx, Montefiore Health System is the first hospital to implement a semantic data lake as part of the New York City Clinical Read more…

Does InfiniBand Have a Future on Hadoop?

Aug 4, 2015 |

Hadoop was created to run on cheap commodity computers connected by slow Ethernet networks. But as Hadoop clusters get bigger and organizations press the upper limits of performance, they’re finding that specialized gear, such as solid state drives and InfiniBand networks, can pay dividends. InfiniBand was released to the world in 2000 as a faster networking protocol than TCP/IP, the primary protocol used in Ethernet networks. Thanks to its use Remote Direct Memory Access (RDMA), InfiniBand allows a computer to Read more…

Corralling VM Complexity with Machine Learning

Jul 14, 2015 |

The widespread use of virtual machines (VMs) makes tracing performance problems in today’s enterprise applications a daunting task. Traditional tools designed to track slowdowns on physical hardware are no match for today’s fast-changing VM infrastructure. Now a software company called SIOS Technology is using machine learning algorithms and predictive techniques to cut through the VM complexity and give harried admins a jumpstart to resolving performance issues. The huge popularity of hypervisors like VMWare‘s ESX Server and Citrix‘s XenServer have had Read more…

But one of the most prominent uses will be powering the next-generation of real-time analytics, the chip giant says. Encryption in Hadoop will also get a boost. Intel processors already run the lion’s share of big data workloads, thanks to the twin forces of open source development and commodity pricing. But with data analytics clearly on the executive agenda in companies across all Read more…

Apache Spark Ecosystem Continues To Build

Feb 25, 2015 |

Apache Spark was everywhere at the recent Strata + Hadoop World conference. From Tableau’s new Spark interface to the new Spark as a service (SaaS) offerings and Intel’s new Spark initiative, the big data framework was very hard to miss. Intel jumped on Spark’s bandwagon last week when it announced it was forming a new initiative around the in-memory framework. “We have engaged with Databricks, one of the pioneers of Apache Spark, to advance analytics capability for the Spark on Read more…

Oracle Rejiggers Exadata for Emerging In-Memory Workloads

Jan 22, 2015 |

Organizations that adopt the latest generation of Oracle’s engineered systems will have more flexible configuration and licensing options available to them than previous generations.
