Greenplum, Big Data, and an Open Source Card

February 13, 2011

Wichita Business Journal has a write-up called “EMC Greenplum Introduces Free Community Edition of ‘Big Data’ Tools for Developers and Data Scientists.” EMC Corporation is one of the world’s leaders in information infrastructure solutions and it is releasing a free edition of the EMC Greenplum Database. This database product offers massively parallel processing, analytic algorithms, and data mining tools. This was announced at the 2011 O’Reilly Strata Conference. The key point was:

“Building on earlier Greenplum “Big Data” breakthroughs, like the EMC Greenplum Data Computing Appliance, the new EMC Greenplum Community Edition removes the cost barrier to entry for big data power tools empowering large numbers of developers, data scientists, and other data professionals. This free set of tools enables the community to not only better understand their data, gain deeper insights and better visualize insights, but to also contribute and participate in the development of next-generation tools and solutions.”

EMC Corporation is geared towards first-time users and current Greenplum customers. First-time users will benefit from business analytics environment and experimenting with its tools. Current customers can easily update their older versions. Our opinion, EMC and “free.” We are curious about commercial companies jumping on the “community” bandwagon.
