HPCC Systems From LexisNexis Expands Strategic Alliance Program Into Asia to Meet Needs for Big Data Processing

Strategic Alliances Canonical, Comrise Consulting, Supermicro, L&T Infotech Provide On-the-Ground Resources

ATLANTA, GA -- (Marketwire) -- 04/30/12 -- HPCC Systems® from LexisNexis® Risk Solutions announced that it is expanding its strategic Alliance Program into Asia starting with four alliances that already have an established presence in the region: Canonical, Comrise Consulting, Supermicro® and L&T Infotech. The HPCC Systems Alliance Program is an ecosystem of proven alliance partners to help customers adopt best practices for processing Big Data and better manage the total cost of ownership (TCO) of Big Data analytics solutions.

HPCC Systems grew out of the need for LexisNexis to manage, sort, link, join and analyze billions of records within seconds. Designed by data scientists, HPCC Systems is an open source, data intensive supercomputer that has evolved for more than a decade, with enterprise customers who need to process large volumes of data in mission-critical 24/7 environments. The HPCC Systems technology has allowed the LexisNexis Risk Solutions business unit to grow to a $1.4 billion business in Big Data processing and analytics.

HPCC Systems will leverage the diverse customer base of Canonical, Comrise Consulting, Supermicro and L&T Infotech to serve the Asia-Pacific market and establish HPCC Systems as a premier resource for Big Data solutions. Comrise Consulting, the Asia-based subsidiary of Comrise Technology Inc, and L&T Infotech have established teams of HPCC Systems consultants with strong track-records in solving big data problems as well as possessing the ability to develop customer-focused solutions in ECL, the programming language designed for "Big Data" applications. Supermicro is a global leader in high-performance, high-efficiency, green server technology and Canonical is the commercial sponsor of the Ubuntu project and the leading provider of support services for Ubuntu deployments in the enterprise.

"We are pleased to expand our offerings to Asia as countries take action to address the needs of increasing demand for Big Data processing power from industries such as telecom, e-commerce, banking and e-government," said Flavio Villanustre, Vice President of Products and Infrastructure for HPCC Systems. "We are aware of the investments being made in data centers in Asia. Launching HPCC Systems and its ecosystem into Asia will help customers navigate options for addressing large data sets, reduce overall infrastructure costs, and improve business agility and data insight."

HPCC Systems can process, analyze, and find links and associations in high volumes of complex data significantly faster and more accurately than current technology systems. The platform scales linearly from tens to thousands of nodes handling petabytes of data and supporting millions of transactions per minute.

HPCC Systems is comprised of a single architecture, a consistent data-centric programming language, management tools and two processing platforms: the Thor Data Refinery Cluster and the Roxie Rapid Data Delivery Cluster. The Thor Data Refinery Cluster is responsible for ingesting vast amounts of data, transforming, linking and indexing that data, with parallel processing power spread across the nodes. The Roxie Rapid Data Delivery Cluster provides highly scalable, high-performance online query processing and data warehouse capabilities.

The core of the technology platform is the Enterprise Control Language (ECL), which is a declarative, data-centric programming language optimized for large-scale data management and query processing.

Today we can collect lots and lots of performance data. We build beautiful dashboards and even have fancy query languages to access and transform the data. Still performance data is a secret language only a couple of people understand. The more business becomes digital the more stakeholders are interested in this data including how it relates to business. Some of these people have never used a monitoring tool before. They have a question on their mind like “How is my application doing” but no id...
Join us at Cloud Expo June 6-8 to find out how to securely connect your cloud app to any cloud or on-premises data source – without complex firewall changes.

Whether it's the power of brand to make or break a company, the need to monitor across all locations 24/7, or the ability to proactively resolve issues, companies must adapt to...
It is ironic, but perhaps not unexpected, that many organizations who want the benefits of using an Agile approach to deliver software use a waterfall approach to adopting Agile practices: they form plans, they set milestones, and they measure progress by how many teams they have engaged. Old habits die hard, but like most waterfall software projects, most waterfall-style Agile adoption efforts fail to produce the results desired. The problem is that to get the results they want, they have to ch...
IoT solutions exploit operational data generated by Internet-connected smart “things” for the purpose of gaining operational insight and producing “better outcomes” (for example, create new business models, eliminate unscheduled maintenance, etc.).

Such cloud investments have delivered measurable benefits. But they’ve also resulted in some unintended side-effects: complexity and risk. ...
The taxi industry never saw Uber coming. Startups are a threat to incumbents like never before, and a major enabler for startups is that they are instantly “cloud ready.” If innovation moves at the pace of IT, then your company is in trouble.

When growing capacity and power in the data center, the architectural trade-offs between server scale-up vs. scale-out continue to be debated. Both approaches are valid: scale-out adds multiple, smaller servers running in a distributed computing model, while scale-up adds fewer, more powerful servers that are capable of running larger workloads. It’s worth noting that there are additional, unique advantages that scale-up architectures offer. One big advantage is large memory and compute capacity...
