HP Vertica is very excited about Monday’s announcement of the HP Moonshot system.
Why? Because we believe that the combination of the HP Vertica Analytics Platform running on the HP Moonshot Servers offers a truly game-changing value proposition for a variety of customers, and new segments of the market.
Moonshot is, simply put, a groundbreaking system which offers customers the ability to rapidly deploy, scale and manage with dramatically lower space and energy constraints. While traditional IT services that support business functions will continue to be served by general purpose server infrastructure, a new computing platform is required for specialized workloads that can deliver innovative solutions to market at unprecedented speed and scale.
We’ve already successfully tested the HP Vertica Analytics Platform on HP Moonshot Servers, and achieved very comparable performance to traditional Big Data Analytics hardware across certain performance ranges, which for a large segment of the market is more than sufficient to handle their Big Data Analytics loads – while offering very significant potential cost, space and energy savings.
Running Vertica on Moonshot offers yet another proof point of the unmatched value provided by HP’s combination of Information Optimization solutions, and a great example of the opportunity created by innovation that makes us so excited to be a part of the greater OneHP.
