  • 1. WHAT IS PIVOTAL BIG DATA SUITE? Competing today requires the ability to capture massive and growing data sets, rapidly analyze and subsequently take advantage of the intelligence they can provide. As enterprises stretch their limited IT budgets to begin building out next- generation data management solutions, they are faced with siloed technologies that provide narrow performance benefits for specific use cases. To mature into data driven leaders, enterprises need a flexible foundation for leveraging Big Data. Pivotal Big Data Suite is a unified set of leading Big Data technologies that offers a powerful, flexible and fast approach to building a Business Data Lake. Unlike multi-vendor and patchwork solutions, Pivotal delivers a unified set of Big Data capabilities that benefits from decades of expertise, development, market-leading data management and analytical intelligence. This enables customers to leverage any mixture of Pivotal’s powerful capabilities, when and where they need it. Pivotal Big Data Suite offers an unlimited subscription to today’s leading enterprise Hadoop distribution, Pivotal HD. With unlimited storage for explosive data growth, enterprises can have the confidence to build next-generation data infrastructures that focus on unlocking the value of data. Pivotal Big Data Suite integrates all the essentials for a Business Data Lake architecture: • Store everything to create a rich data repository for business needs. With unlimited, supported Pivotal HD enterprises never have to worry about data growth constraints or runaway license costs. • Analyze anything with broad, deep and fast analytical solutions to determine the integration value of multiple data sets and types. • Build the right thing with a flexible data infrastructure that is designed to deliver a transformative solution to meet today’s demanding business needs. AT-A-GLANCE Today’s enterprises are struggling to realize the potential of Big Data in the face of limited budgets, complex critical technology decisions and exponential data growth rates. Pivotal Big Data Suite provides the world’s most advanced set of flexible tools in a cost efficient model. This helps create a modern Business Data Lake architecture – focused on removing the technical and financial constraints of data storage, movement and analysis. The toolset enables companies to store all data, accelerate processing, and most importantly increase the amount of data being analyzed and operationalized within the business. KEY BENEFITS • Enables varied business needs and removes IT constraints with a hybrid set of data management technologies • Provides the foundation for a Business Data Lake architecture where data is captured, analyzed and leveraged through a seamless integrated subscription • Delivers greater insight into enterprise data with rich, deep and fast analytic toolsets • Creates an easily accessible and flexible data repository for the next generation of business applications • Injects businesses and operations with a greater degree of insight to outpace the competition and increase top line revenue growth DATA SHEET Pivotal Big Data Suite STORE EVERYTHING. ANALYZE ANYTHING. BUILD THE RIGHT THING. OVERVIEW
  • 2. DATA SHEET PIVOTAL BIG DATA SUITE 2 HOW IS PIVOTAL BIG DATA SUITE USED? STORE EVERYTHING The biggest challenge most organizations face today is how to manage the explosion of data growth – everything from customer data through social media outlets to machine-generated data, such as network logs. Organizations often worry too much about the expenditures of storing all their data while it grows at an average of 60% year over year. The first step to building a Business Data Lake architecture and becoming a data-driven enterprise is storing and archiving all data types indefinitely. This is especially challenging and expensive with traditional approaches. Pivotal Big Data Suite enables organizations to store all their data in its native format with an unlimited subscription of Pivotal HD, the world’s most powerful enterprise supported Hadoop distribution. Organizations can start simply by storing and archiving data that they are not fully utilizing today. To free up resources alongside their existing Enterprise Data Warehouse, they can begin to move data sets onto Pivotal HD. By storing larger volumes of data, for free, Pivotal Big Data Suite automatically delivers additional data patterns and insights to help turn today’s businesses into next- generation, data-driven enterprises. ANALYZE ANYTHING With all that data stored, enterprises can begin to focus on what really matters – determining the value of the information and identifying what correlations may or may not exist between different data sets. Today’s analytics require real-time, interactive and batch capabilities. Pivotal Big Data Suite includes the most advanced and flexible analytical engines and toolsets for data scientists and analysts. Batch Analysis All batch needs are met with unlimited Pivotal HD, which is based on the Apache Hadoop Distribution. Hadoop leverages MapReduce for batch analysis and analytics. With Pivotal Big Data Suite, this can be over any data set a business finds valuable. Interactive Analysis Pivotal Greenplum Database uses a shared-nothing, massively parallel processing (MPP) database and flexible column and row orientated storage to deliver a truly advanced Analytical Data Warehouse (ADW). Simultaneously, HAWQ delivers the highest performing SQL query engine over HDFS for interactive query analysis. Both leverage fully parallel communication alongside an organization’s existing EDW architecture. Real-Time Analysis and In-Memory Data Grids For real-time analytical and transactional needs, enterprises can seamlessly extend their environment with in-memory data grid technology from Pivotal GemFire, Pivotal SQLFire and Pivotal GemFire XD. Fast and flexible, these real-time additions to the Business Data Lake architecture enable processing of massive quantities of data and scale in a single, integrated big and fast data platform. All the rich and flexible tools to build a Business Data Lake and achieve data-driven success.
