VelociData to Present “Wire-speed Data Transformation: Competitive Necessity for Breaking Up Big Data Bottlenecks?” at Gartner Symposium/ITxpo 2013
VelociData will discuss the need for speed in handling Big Data bottlenecks to realize the benefits promised by Hadoop and real time analytics.
St. Louis, MO (PRWEB) August 28, 2013
VelociData, provider of the world’s fastest Big Data operations appliance (combining software, firmware and massively parallel hardware) for data transformation and data quality, announced today that VelociData has been invited to present at Gartner's Symposium ITxpo 2013. The conference is considered the "world's largest gathering of CIO's and senior IT executives."
VelociData’s President and CTO, Dr. Ron Indeck, Ph.D., will give a presentation entitled “Wire-speed Data Transformation: Competitive Necessity for Breaking Up Big Data Bottlenecks. Dr. Indeck, a well-known pioneer of hybrid, heterogeneous computing, has founded two technology companies dedicated to delivering world-class computing performance. Among his distinguished professional achievements, Dr. Indeck is the former President of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) Magnetics Society. Dr. Indeck has also been named the Bar Association Inventor of the Year.
In his presentation, Dr. Indeck will feature VelociData’s innovative solution for ingesting and transforming EBCDIC, ASCII, and unstructured data into a Big Data target at wire speed. Without adding measurable latency, inbound data will be cleansed, conformed, normalized, and secured to provide valuable pre-processed data on its way into Hadoop with results displayed in Tableau. Dr. Indeck will describe how customers are benefitting from offloading transformations from: mainframes, MPP platforms (including Netezza and Teradata), Hadoop, and ETL tools. These benefits include significantly improved price-performance over other alternatives. VelociData speeds are typically in the range of hundreds of thousands to millions of records per second, depending on the exact transformation. It is estimated the “live” demonstration at the Emerging Technology booth will achieve performance of about 10 million rows in less than 30 seconds.
With data volume growing and budgets limited, IT organizations struggle to meet the demand of the business for fast, accurate answers while meeting time-bound service levels. Solution approaches have included capital-intensive investments in additional infrastructure and adoption of new technologies that require entirely new skill-sets while only partially addressing speed and scale.
VelociData overcomes these technical and financial obstacles to Big Data performance by:
1) Providing a Big Data operation appliance for offloading and accelerating ingest processing by 1000x
2) Allowing customers to acquire the solution on a monthly subscription basis
Those familiar with conventional ETL tools will appreciate how the VelociData solution snaps into existing architecture, accelerating time-to-benefit, while avoiding the cost and risk associated with more disruptive approaches.
The VelociData solution delivers massive gains in speed and scale, while ensuring data integrity.
“In terms of technical workloads, the demands being placed on IT by the business are growing exponentially—despite the fact that IT resources are growing slowly if at all,” said Ron Indeck, President and CTO of VelociData.
We look forward to seeing you at the conference in Orlando. Please stop by and see us in the VelociData booth at the Emerging Technology Pavilion located in passage between the Atlantic and Pacific Halls. The presentation on “Wire-speed Data Transformation” by Dr. Indeck will be at the Walt Disney World Dolphin – ITxpo Show Floor – Emerging Technology Pavilion Theater on Wednesday, October 9th at 3:55 pm – 4:05 pm.
