YarcData has has updated the software for one of its big data analytics “appliances” that is built to integrate with business intelligence, visualization, performance and productivity tools.
Urika, as the solution is called, can store up to 512 terabytes of global shared memory and works with both data warehouses and Hadoop clusters, according to the company.
“We have seen an explosion in front-end tools for data discovery, and YarcData’s mission is to be the server back-end for data discovery, similar to how MPP appliances were the server back-end for traditional business intelligence,” said Arvind Parthasarathi, YarcData president.
Parthsarathi adds that the company issued the update in an effort to accelerate “the uncovering of value insight in disparate enterprise data” and eliminate “the need for extensive data preparation, modeling and knowing all of the questionst o be asked upfront.”
San Fransisco Bay Area-based YarcData said customers of its big data analytics solutions include the Oak Ridge National Laboratory, QinetiQ, Noblis and Sandia National Laboratories, among others.
