New capabilities expand HP AppSystem for Apache Hadoop

By Lisa Boyd – HP Converged Systems

 

In December we launched the first HP Converged System for Apache Hadoop, the AppSystem, which allowed customers to quickly and easily stand up a Hadoop cluster and start getting the value out of their Big Data.  The AppSystem comes pre-configured, so it saves you time, and doesn’t require that you be a Hadoop expert to get started. 

 

Now we’re enabling you with the capability to expand your Hadoop clusters with expansion kits to meet your rapidly evolving Big Data needs.

React to the speed of your business with HP Converged Systems for SAS

By Travis Kuter – HP Converged Systems

 

There is simply no doubting the unrelenting pace of business, and the IT industry as a whole. There is one fitting word which best describes what drives the pace. And the word I am thinking of is the word, “MORE!” IT enthusiasts continue to challenge technology companies like HP to always be doing more.

 

Today, HP delivers on the “More” by enhancing our recently released Converged Systems for SAS Visual Analytics by adding four new HP ProLiant Server configurations, as well as HP’s Automated-Ordering Assistant, to the mix.

 

And even better, these configurations can be ordered and used equally with all SAS High-Performance Analytics products such as SAS High-Performance Data Miner and High-Performance Analytics Server.

HP Converged Systems help LarrainVial optimize its investment strategy

“With the HP Universal Database Solution reference architecture and HP hardware and best practices, we were able to reduce the time to generate reports from the data warehouse by 86 percent.”

 

Carlos Sotolongo, Manager of Technology, LarrainVial

 

 LarrainVial is the largest financial services firm in Chile, transacting about 32 percent of the trades in the Chilean market, offering brokerage services, investment banking, and financial advisory services to corporations and individuals in markets throughout South America.

 

It’s essential for the company to have clear insight into the large volume of trades it is processing in order to remain competitive, and this has become more important with recent expansions into Brazil and the United States, where due to its fast growth there were delays in processing trading data into usable reports.

At HP, we bring together a portfolio that spans printing, personal computing, software, services, IT infrastructure and connectivity and have more than 300,000 employees worldwide.

We are on a continual journey to improve our supply chain management practices to benefit customers, suppliers, employees, the environment and HP's own bottom line, and one of the key areas of improvement recently involved the deployment of one of our own Converged Systems solutions to leverage the advantages of “Big Data”...

 

Namely, our HP AppSystems for SAP HANA.
