HP aims to shrink big data

Autonomy Legacy Data Cleanup can remove unneeded files in SharePoint sites and email repositories

HP also announced a new marketing initiative, called HAVEn, to help organizations think about how to build big data analysis systems. The company says HAVEn stands for HP Autonomy, HP Vertica, HP ArcSight and HP Operations Management, all of which are HP software products that can help harvest and collect data.

The "n" stands for the potential number of systems that could be built from any combination of these software packages, an idea that the company will promote at the conference. For example, the data from HP Operations Analytics, which monitors the operational health of IT systems, could be paired with Vertica, to more quickly pinpoint trouble spots in the system.

HP Technology Services has expanded its consulting services to help organizations build systems that can do big data analysis as well. More expertise has been added to help organizations with issues around IT strategy and architecture, system infrastructure and data protection, especially when they involve implementing Hadoop.

"Most of our clients are ready to adopt Hadoop but don't really have the right infrastructure," Manley said. The new services "enable customers to put a strategy around Hadoop, and to ensure they have the right architecture and infrastructure to get the most out of Hadoop."
