Data insights firm Kinetica taps Dell for hardware
Dell EMC, part of Dell Technologies, collaborated with Kinetica to create a data platform that handles – as Kinetica calls it – “extreme data”. These large and complex data sets require more computing performance, which will be powered by Dell PowerEdge servers.
Ron Pugh, vice-president and general manager for the Americas at Dell EMC OEM Solutions, says the solution “offers massive amounts of additional computing performance for real-time streaming data, machine learning and geospatial visualisation of enterprise workloads”.
Kinetica’s GPU-accelerated insight engine will focus on the software side to analyse massive sets of data in real-time.
Paul Appleby, Kinetica CEO, adds: “Previously, in the manufacturing economy data was used for business validation; as we evolved to the service economy, data was used to make informed decisions; and, now, in the extreme data economy our business is powered by data.”
Since it was founded in 2009, Kinetica has raised $63 million in funding from Canvas Ventures, Citi Ventures, GreatPoint Ventures, and Meritech Capital Partners.
At the start of this year, Kinetica partnered with UClick to launch solutions in South Korea.
