It’s no secret that analytics is eating the enterprise world, but if there’s anything in perpetually short supply, it’s speed. Enter Cray, which on Tuesday unveiled a new supercomputing platform designed with that in mind.
Dubbed Urika-GX, the new system is the first agile analytics platform to fuse supercomputing with an open, enterprise framework, Cray said.
Due to be available in the third quarter, Urika-GX promises data scientists new levels of performance and the ability to find insight in massive data sets quickly. The system is tuned for highly iterative and interactive analytics, and integrated graph analytics offers rapid pattern matching.
