HP's Vertica's analytics software has been a big hit for partners and customers looking to capitalize on the big data explosion. The purpose-built machine could be a game changer for HP hardware partners that have yet to venture into the big data market.
The Vertica system is a classic case of HP targeting a fast-growth market with a compelling solution, said Peter Larocque, president of North America distribution for Synnex, HP's top commercial distributor this year in year-over-year sales growth.
"The bottom line is HP is positioning themselves in growth markets," said Larocque. "Big data is a huge growth market. Having the right products to participate, we should do very well."
HP says the ConvergedSystem for Vertica will be available in its second fiscal quarter, which runs Feb. 1 - April 30.
