Feb 18 15
Informatica Corporation announced a joint Data Warehouse Optimization solution with Cisco for organizations looking to modernize data management and fuel new business insights. Combining Informatica and Cisco® technologies with Hadoop, the new Data Warehouse Optimization solution enables customers to integrate and analyze more data and types of data, more effectively and economically, with lower risk. The solution provides a single platform for offloading processing and storage for data warehouses to Hadoop. It is being introduced at Strata + Hadoop World Make Data Work Conference, Feb. 17-20, at the San Jose Convention Center, and is being exhibited at Cisco booth (#831). With the growing pace of business and increasing use of mobile devices and industrial sensors, businesses have never had as much opportunity to create competitive edge fueled by data. New scalable and efficient technologies such as Hadoop are enabling larger quantities and varieties of data to be collected, perfected, and protected to drive new innovations and fuel competitive edge. Surveys show that traditional technologies are not being properly utilized to meet the challenges of modern business. To meet exploding business demands for data, it is vital that data warehouse systems be optimized for higher value utilization. Enterprises seek simpler solutions for accelerating the deployment of modern data management environments while minimizing risks in the areas of productivity, maintainability and data governance. The most viable solution is to offload ETL/ELT processing and archive data to Hadoop to free data warehouse resources for higher value tasks. The Informatica and Cisco Data Warehouse Optimization solution helps minimize the risks of transitioning from traditional systems to Hadoop for faster integration and preparation of greater volumes and more varieties of data. The Data Warehouse Optimization solution works with a customer's Apache Hadoop distribution of choice, including Cloudera, Hortonworks and MapR. The solution provides a complete software, networking and computing infrastructure for utilizing big data in all its varieties, encompassing: Informatica Big Data Edition - Runs data integration and data refinement workloads (e.g.: ELT and ETL) natively on Hadoop for superior scalability and performance, and enables infrequently used historical data to be archived to Hadoop for superior economics, while keeping archived data readily accessible to business users and analytic applications. Cisco Data Virtualization Platform - Federates data across the data warehouse and Hadoop for logical data warehousing, empowering organizations with a comprehensive view of all their data assets coupled with seamless data availability. Cisco Unified Computing System (UCS) - Provides a simple, high- performance and highly scalable Hadoop-optimized hardware platform that combines compute, networking, storage and unified management capabilities for efficiently and cost-effectively handling big data.
