Hewlett Packard today announced the next release of HPE Vertica 8, being called ‘Frontloader. The HPE Vertica 8 introduces a unified architecture and advanced in-database analytics capabilities that enable users to conduct sophisticated analysis at industry-leading scale and speed, regardless of where their data location may be.

One of the biggest issues facing organizations today is extracting intelligence from data residing in multiple silos across the datacenter. HPE Vertica 8 provides organizations with a unique, analyze-in-place, unified architecture that enables businesses to continually gain intelligence from their information, wherever it lives. Organizations can use HPE Vertica 8’s flexible deployment options across on-premise, private, and public clouds, and in Hadoop data lakes, to adopt a best-fit solution that allows them to choose where and how they run analytics.

Colin Mahony, Senior Vice-President and General Manager Big Data Platform at HPE Software mentioned, “Building on our Vertica mantra of delivering the broadest deployment and consumption models, and best-fit engineering, HPE Vertica 8 delivers an innovative platform that allows organizations to access and analyze the largest volumes and various forms of data, regardless of where the data is located,”

He added, “Integrated with broad in-database applied machine learning analytic capabilities and open source innovation, Vertica 8 gives companies a competitive edge to solve problems faster and at lower costs.”

The Vertica 8 also includes core data movement and orchestration enhancements, resulting in up to 700 percent faster data loading for hundreds of thousands of columns, simplified data loading from Amazon S3, and comprehensive visual monitoring of Apache Kafka data streams.

Dan Woicke, the Director of Enterprise System Management at Cerner Corporation said, “To ensure our Cerner Millennium Electronic Medical Records (EMR) Platform delivers rapid response and high performance to thousands of critical care givers, we require a massively scalable, enterprise-grade analytics platform.”

“With HPE Vertica 8, we have peace of mind, knowing that as we continue to grow in users, data, and stringent SLAs, our system can scale to address the largest and highest concurrency and performance needs. All of this, while allowing us to take advantage of Hadoop open source technologies where it makes sense for us as a nimble business,” he summed up.

The company further said that HPE Vertica with Azure support is immediately available via the Microsoft Azure Marketplace, giving organizations the flexibility and freedom to choose the right cloud platform for their needs. This announcement represents the next step in our collaboration with Microsoft and builds on the strategic agreement that HPE and Microsoft signed at the end of 2015 to meet the growing demands of our joint enterprise customers for best-in-class hybrid computing experiences. 

“With Azure, Microsoft is delivering a world class cloud platform to help customers accelerate their digital transformation,” said Mike Schutz, General Manager, Cloud Platform Product Marketing, Microsoft. “A key part of this is fostering a strong ecosystem of enterprise-grade applications on Azure. HPE’s selection of Azure as a fully supported platform for their flagship offerings such as Vertica highlights our joint commitment to meet the dynamic needs of today’s digital enterprises.”

The new release includes dozens of critical core enhancements to increase system reliability under extreme concurrency levels, natively integrate with open source innovations for analysis-in-place, and achieve enterprise-class performance and security.

HPE Vertica eight Frontloader will be generally available during HPE’s fiscal Q4.
