HP migrates Haven platform to the cloud allowing customers to access analytics technology within minutes

Technology giant Hewlett-Packard has migrated its big data analytics platform to the Cloud with the official release of HP Haven OnDemand.

Haven stands for Hadoop, Autonomy, Vertica, Enterprise Security and n (for a large number of applications), and it consolidates many of the firm’s technologies.

Important Milestone?

HP is hailing the release of HP Haven OnDemand as an important milestone in its Big Data strategy that gives organisations cloud-based access to key components of HP’s analytics platform.

Haven OnDemand actually runs on the HP Helion cloud, and enables customers to analyse all forms of data, including business data, machine data, and unstructured, human information. The platform also allows organisations to utilise Big Data when developing complex applications.
