Hewlett-Packard (HP) today announced the availability of a free full-feature version of the HP Vertica Analytics Platform for up to a full terabyte of data.
This free, downloadable software solution delivers the same functionality as HP Vertica Analytics Platform Enterprise Edition with no commitments or time limits. This platform can enable organisations to figure out ways of optimising and monetising ‘Big Data’, the company said in a statement. “Organisations want to make sure they can analyse and monetise Big Data before committing to a major investment,” Amit Chatterjee, country director, HP Software India.
“The updated HP Vertica Community Edition allows them to test drive a next-generation analytics platform, gain insight from Big Data, and understand the real ROI of the project before they spend a dime.”
While organisations recognise the potential for insights to be extracted from Big Data, they want to make sure there is value in the information analysed. To help clients determine the benefits of analysing their Big Data before deploying an enterprise solution, HP is offering the new HP Vertica Community Edition, the statement added.
