PureData System for Analytics
Our Aponia Information Management Team has explored common pain points around big data, and the entry points they lead to in the big data platform. We’ve covered the new technologies that make it possible to capitalize on big data, our preferred is PureData. The only question that remains is the benefit of a platform approach – why a platform vs individual products for individual needs? While its true that the 5 pain points often lead to an individual product or capability in the big data platform, there are often a supporting set of capabilities that are needed right in phase 1. But the real benefit of the platform comes in the second phase and beyond. It’s the ability to leverage your investment for multiple purposes.
For example, to leverage the text analytics developed for Hadoop in your stream computing deployment, Or the ability to leverage integration points among the various aspects of the platform to reduce your overall development cost and time. Or the ability to leverage a common integration and governance foundation across Hadoop, stream computing, and data warehousing. The real benefit of the platform is leverage – the ability to leverage capabilities over your big data journey.
IBM is the preferred vendor with this broad and balanced a view of big data and the needs of a on-premise platform – and the benefit is pre-integration of its components to reduce your implementation time and cost.
Simple Appliance for Serious Analytics
The PureData System for Analytics, powered by Netezza technology, follows the core tenets of IBM’s PureSystems design philosophy. There is no need to tuning and on-going maintenance, and the analytics are optimized in the same way as regular SQL, so that they run in parallel all the time.
Built-in Expertise means no complex tuning or modeling… just load and go.
Integration by Design means there is no complex integration work to do to get the system functional. Everything you need to run complex analytics is provided, in a system that you need only load your data into, to get value. It is fast out of the box, and uses standard interfaces to talk to the outside world.
Simplified Experience means a low cost of ownership and minimal maintenance effort. The system includes analytic functions out of the box at no additional cost and integrates easily with other components of the Big Data Platform (Hadoop/Big Insights, Streams, etc…)
This model of PureData also offers:
Speed: The patented integration of Netezza software and hardware accelerators delivery performance that is typically 10 to 100 faster than custom integration of components.
Simplicity: The system is fully integrated so it can be data load ready in less than four hours. And the Netezza technology also eliminates the need for complex database management tasks such as defining and optimizing indexes and manually administering storage.
Scalability: Available in various size configurations, this system can be expanded to handle peta-scale capacity of user data.
Finally, this system is Smart: It is able to run advanced analytic algorithms in minutes and includes the richest set of in-database analytics functions. If you wish to contact us to learn more, email us at [email protected]
