"According to EMC, the Greenplum HD Data Computing Appliance
allows for co-processing of both structured and unstructured data
within a single solution. Apache Hadoop-based batch processing of
unstructured and structured data at massive scale using commodity
hardware has led to a profound change in analytics. By extracting
the knowledge wrapped within unstructured machine-generated data,
organizations can make better decisions that drive revenue, improve
service and reduce costs, the data storage giant says.
"The EMC Greenplum HD product family includes two editions: the
Hadoop-based EMC Greenplum HD Community Edition, and EMC Greenplum
HD Enterprise Edition software. The company previously released the
free community edition of the EMC Greenplum Database, along with
analytic algorithms and data mining tools."
