Hitachi develops high performance data processing technology increasing data analytics speed by up to 100 times
Hitachi, Ltd. today announced the development of a database management system optimized for the high-speed embedded memory in the hardware (FPGA*1) and technology for high performance parallel data processing in FPGAs. Using these technologies, speed of data analytics was successfully increased by up to a maximum of 100 times compared with not using these technologies. Further, the two technologies developed were combined with "Pentaho Business Analytics," a business analytics software*2 developed by Pentaho Corporation (a Hitachi Group company) to visualize business analytics results, and with flash storage for data storage, to create a prototype real-time data analytics system. The prototype will contribute to realizing self-service data analytics enabling employees in the field to easily and quickly execute data analytics on massive business data.
Hitachi plans to exhibit these technologies at the Flash Memory Summit 2016, to be held from 9-11 August 2016 in Santa Clara, California, USA.
