Pivotal Big Data Suite Reviews, Features This Technology

Pivotal Big Data Suite Reviews, Features This Technology The Pivotal Big Data Suite is an integrated solution that enables big data management and analytics for enterprises. It includes Greenplum, a business-ready data warehouse,

GemFire, an in-memory data grid and Postgres which helps deploy clusters of the PostgreSQL database. With a data architecture built for batch as well as streaming analytics, it can be deployed on-premise and in the cloud, and as part of Pivotal Cloud foundry.

Since 2019, Pivotal has been owned by VMWare. Besides an annual subscription, the vendor offers pricing by core for its computing resources.

It is compatible with open data platform (ODP) versions of Hadoop and works with Apache Solr to provide text analytics.

Open Source The Pivotal Way

In 2014, Pivotal Big Data Suite simplified and combined a set of market-leading proprietary technologies built to work with our Apache-compliant Hadoop Pivotal HD.

While our customers loved the the capabilities and gobbled up the Pivotal Big Data Suite’s flexibility, they were clear that their buying preferences were changing.

Customers these days are seeking to incorporate open source technology as much as possible, especially in the area of IT infrastructure.

So, in hearing our customers requests, and given Pivotal’s record-breaking success with the Pivotal Cloud Foundry business, we have decided to embrace a totally open source approach for Pivotal Big Data Suite.

This includes incorporating additional open source technologies as entitlements to our popular flex licensing capabilities.

We plan to release all components of our powerful data portfolio to open source, and using our experience with the Cloud Foundry Foundation to help create a more stable, enterprise-friendly core for Hadoop.

Releasing long-time proprietary products as open source might seem to be as easy as simply posting code to Github, but there’s quite a bit involved.

This has been in the works for some time however, Pivotal is actively championing each of these technologies through the path to open source, selecting licenses, protecting intellectual property, and establishing governance.

Our detailed plans are still being finalized, but we plan to begin release and incubation of Pivotal GemFire, Pivotal HAWQ, and Pivotal Greenplum Database in a quarterly cadence.

We’re closing in now on the structure of ownership of GemFire, Greenplum Database, and HAWQ code to the most appropriate entity for working with the big data community.

As we get closer to actual release milestones, we will continue to update on the progress of each product.

Moving Beyond “Big” to Agile Data

HDFS and the Apache Hadoop® ecosystem have always been a core component of Pivotal Big Data Suite to provide flexibility for handling data stores of any size, type, and speed.

But today, what customers have been asking for is a more agile way to wield their data. Our customers are looking to Pivotal to transition their data infrastructures in the same way we have their application development, engineering, and IT operations methods and platforms.

For Pivotal, this means a next generation data infrastructure that seamlessly provides the enterprise with the data they need, where they need it, and with the right tools for the job.

We feel particularly armed to solve this challenge as we continue to integrate our world leading platform as a service and big data technologies. And here, with this new version of

Pivotal Big Data Suite, we have focused on increasing options with support for bare metal commodity hardware, appliance-based delivery, virtualized instances, and now public, private, and hybrid cloud support.

In addition, we now include an instance of Pivotal Cloud Foundry, and the ability to allocate cores of Pivotal Big Data Suite to Pivotal Cloud Foundry data services utilizing Pivotal Big Data Suite components—all in one easy to utilize and flexible enterprise subscription.
