HP announced HP Haven OnDemand, which provides users cloud-based access to key components of HP’s analytics platform Haven Enterprise. Haven OnDemand runs on HP’s Helion cloud.
Haven is a big part of HP’s big data strategy. It was originally a bundle of HP analytics, hardware, and services targeted as an enterprise platform. Now the company is making key components of that platform available on-demand. HP is also leveraging Haven’s capabilities in its own software portfolio. Several services that use Haven as a cornerstone were also announced.
A cloud-based analytics-as-a-service built on HP’s Haven Big Data platform was first announced in 2013. The initial service provided an entry path for customers and focused on combining hardware and software in one package. The new OnDemand lets users tap into components a la carte and in minutes. The focus is less on an easy-to-use bundle for enterprises and more on easy-to-use components that can be set up near instantly.
The biggest trend in big data is the cloud is making properly leveraging and analyzing massive amounts of data possible for a wider swath of people. Big data used to be territory of only the bigger enterprises; now, several tech providers like HP are building big data clouds, making analytics open to anyone. Big data’s promise is not just insight into a business, it also opens the door for building unique functionality in applications that tap into analytics and data further.
Enterprise technology players have shifted cloud focus towards big data, which has long been a buzz term. Now IBM, HP, SAP, and others are trying to move analytics to the cloud, offering cloud big data tools.
Hosting and cloud providers are also getting in on the act. French hosting provider OVH is launching a big data cloudbased on IBM systems. Rackspace recently launched a big data cloud as well.
