Kinetica Taps Dell for Hardware

Data insights company Kinetica expanded on its partnership with Dell EMC this week. The two have collaborated to offer a bundled solution to help clients quickly gather actionable insights from raw data.

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 said, “We are excited to collaborate with Kinetica to deliver a solution that offers massive amounts of additional computing performance for real-time streaming data, machine learning and geospatial visualization of enterprise workloads.”

Kinetica’s GPU-accelerated insight engine will focus on the software side to analyze massive sets of data in real-time. Paul Appleby, Kinetica CEO said, “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. Dell, NVIDIA and Kinetica are combining forces to provide enterprises with the freedom to analyze data whenever it is most valuable and gain instant insights that revolutionize the way they do business.”

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 FinovateEurope 2018, the company showcased its GPU-Accelerated In-Memory Database. At the start of this year, Kinetica partnered with UClick to launch solutions in South Korea and in April it earned a spot on the insideBIGDATA IMPACT 50 list.
