InfiniDB is high performance analytic data platform that is being deployed as part of a heterogeneous Big Data analytics architecture to serve current and emerging large scale BI and analytics needs.

Calpont Corporation announced today at the Strata Conference how its high performance analytic data platform InfiniDB is being deployed as part of a heterogeneous Big Data analytics architecture to serve current and emerging large scale BI and analytics needs.

The presentation titled, “Big Data Analytics Platform at Nokia – Selecting the Right Tool for the Right Workload,” will be featured at 4:10 p.m. on Thursday, October 25 in the Nassau Room at the New York Hilton. The presentation will discuss the technology stack of the Big Data analytics service and motivations behind Nokia’s design choices, challenges faced and future requirements.

Yekesa Kosuru, distinguished data architect at Nokia, and Jim Tommaney, CTO at Calpont, will share how Nokia has created a Big Data analytics service that is strategic to the company. By creating a single data asset, and making it accessible to internal consumers, Nokia has opened up new opportunities that range from better decision making to faster innovation. The centralized analytics service is a multi-tenant, multi-petabyte environment with terabytes of data flowing in every day. The service is made up of an ecosystem of technologies that support business needs, including location content processing, ETL, ad-hoc SQL queries, dashboard generation, and advanced mining and analytics. The service combines commercial and open source components to generate analytical value for Nokia. Technologies such as Calpont InfiniDB, NoSQL, Scribe, REST, Hadoop, and R form the data and analytics infrastructure at Nokia.

Calpont also announced this week InfiniDB 3.5, which will be available in November 2012. The new release includes enhanced shared-nothing storage support, cross-engine join capability, and administration enhancements that improve the deployment and maintenance experience for flexible and scalable Big Data architectures.

Copies of the presentation are available on the Strata Conference website.
