Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE) today released HPE Vertica 8, enabling users to conduct data analytics with scale and speed, regardless of where their data is. HPE also announced today the availability of HPE Haven OnDemand (HoD) Combinations, which allows users to apply machine learning in building next generation applications.
Access to Data
One issue facing organizations today is being able to extract information from data residing in multiple silos across the data center. HPE Vertica 8 uses in-database machine learning algorithms that enable businesses to continuously gain analytics from their information, no matter where it lies.
Organizations can use HPE Vertica 8 across on-premises, private, and public clouds, and in Hadoop data lakes. Vertica 8 also includes core data movement and orchestration enhancements, and the company claims that this results in 700 percent faster data loading for hundreds of thousands of columns, simplified data loading from Amazon S3, and visual monitoring of Apache Kafka data streams.
Vertica 8 is also available with Azure support and is available on the Microsoft Azure Marketplace. This builds on the strategic agreement these companies made at the end of 2015 to meet the growing demands of their joint enterprise customers for hybrid computing experiences.
Next Gen Cognitive Applications
Haven onDemand Combinations provide users with a pre-built catalogue of cognitive services. This allows developers to chain together multiple machine learning APIs into combinations. They can then copy and paste the code into their development projects to create mobile and enterprise applications.
HoD Combinations includes several new capabilities. These include simplified coding, which reduces code to a single API call that supports unlimited transformations and reduced latency because of fewer API calls; drag and drop graphical UI allows developers to chain any number of HoD’s APIs to create, test, and publish new services; publish and reuse combinations that are published to the organization’s account; can be delivered through the Azure platform; facilitates development of applications with only a few lines of code, harnessing the power of machine learning.
HPE Haven OnDemand Combinations is available for early access by request and will be generally available during HPE’s fiscal Q4 of 2016.
