Couple of weeks back, I wrote my work experience on HP Vertica performance improvement strategy. Another big data update on HP Vertica, integration with Hadoop ecosystem.
Hewlett-Packard is building a bridge between traditional SQL database analytics and Big Data on Hadoop systems. The result is HP Vertica for SQL on Hadoop.
HP officially unveiled the new offering — though reports about the offering (previously code-named Dragline) surfaced in May 2014.
HP said, “expanded SQL-on-Hadoop exploration and cost-optimized storage eliminates the need to move data and supports even more formats for data exploration, including Parquet, Thrift, Avro and CEF. Businesses can now ingest, explore and visualize more data more quickly and easily with their choice of Business Intelligence/data visualization environments.”
HP also confirms that the SQL-on-Hadoop support is vendor agnostic. In other words, HP’s offering will work with such leading Hadoop distributions as Apache Hadoop, Cloudera, Hortonworks and MapR.
