EMC Delivers Single Platform For Data Analytics
EMC describes its EMC Greenplum Unified Analytics Platform (UAP) as a single software platform on which data and analytics teams can seamlessly share information and collaborate on analyses without having to work in--or move data between--separate silos. As such, UAP includes the ECM Greenplum relational database, the EMC Greenplum HD Hadoop distribution, and EMC Greenplum Chorus, which is a collaborative, social-network-style interface for data-analysis teams, from the PhD data scientists to the data-integration experts and BI analysts, to the DBAs and line-of-business users and managers.

EMC's hardware for big data is the modular EMC Data Computing Appliance (DCA), which is capable of running and scaling up both the Greenplum relational database and Greenplum HD nodes within a single box. The DCA offers a shared Command Center interface that lets administrators monitor, manage, and provision both Greenplum database and Hadoop system performance and capacity. The UAP software unifies data access, management, and workflow, and ties to other data sources, data-processing approaches, and analytic capabilities are expected to multiply as the platform matures.
