Cray wants to light a fire under your big data

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.

“In the past, you’d run some types of analytics every 24 hours or even every week,” said Ryan Waite, Cray’s senior vice president of products. “Today, you might want to run them every six hours or every hour to be more in tune with what customers are doing.”
