The month of April saw companies continue to direct resources to their big data and analytics portfolios and TheNewNewInternet stayed at the forefront of those developments, ranging from new products to investments with the intent to grow this line of business.
TheNewNewInternet, also affectionately known as “TNNI” by Executive Mosaic staffers and loyal readers, is the leader in covering the latest trends and new developments in GovCon technology with an eye to what is coming in the future.
TNNI’s coverage of big data is diverse in its approach as the site not only informs readers of the latest technologies but offers the executive’s perspective on how those new offerings intend to drive further innovation and business growth.
Hewlett-Packard ended anticipation by unveiling a new software-defined Moonshoot server system that aims to help enterprises manage workloads on smartphones and tablet computers.
Moonshot 1500 and ProLiant Moonshot also intends to help organizations cut 89 percent of energy consumption and 80 percent of space requirements through a shared fabric of cooling fans and other systems.
Meg Whitman, HP chairman and CEO, said industry can no longer sustain space, power and cost demands of traditional technology as more than 10 billion devices are connected to the Internet.
Boeing also released a new big data offering by updating its “Twister” software, intending to support open-source software and report performance bottlenecks to system administrators.
Twister is designed for a cloud environment and to balance loads both in the cloud and in clustered file systems.
Jonathan Moneymaker, director of Boeing’s intelligence systems group, said all customers face the challenge of making decisions with a large amount of data.
TNNI’s coverage also extends to business initiatives of technology companies as MarkLogic received a new $25 million funding round from a group of investors that included CEO Gary Bloom.
The company intends to use the funds to further market its enterprise NoSQL database platform to both government customers and Fortune 500 companies.
Bloom said enterprises know they cannot compromise on standards for security, backup, recovery, alerting and other enterprise capabilities.
