Dell/RainStor Partner For Big Data Storage and Analysis

Subscribe to our newsletter

Dell has partnered with big database vendor RainStor for its Dell Big Data Retention solution, which acts as data repository for large datasets, either to support analytics, or as long-term archiving.  For the financial markets, the solution is being pitched at firms needing to process large quantities of time series, transactional or unstructured data, or for many-year storage for regulatory compliance.

From its side, Dell is pitching its DX Object Storage Platform, which can scale up to petabytes of data and billions of objects.  Object storage overcomes limitations of traditional file hierarchies to make data easier to manage, sort, classify and delete.  As such, it is well suited to both structured and unstructured data.

RainStor is providing its database, optimised for the DX, which features 40:1 data compression and a 10x to 100x Hadoop speedup, running on a cluster of commodity servers.

In its worldview, Dell is looking for the cluster to include its PowerEdge C and R series servers, managed by its Crowbar suite, connected by its Force 10 networking, and perhaps running its distribution of Cloudera Hadoop.

Separately, Dell has partnered with Datameer to provide its data integration, analytics and visualisation solution as an option to the Dell Cloudera distribution.  Datameer combines data integration, 200+ pre-built analytic and transformation functions, and data visualisation functionality.
