Barton George is Cloud Computing and Scale-Out Evangelist for Dell.

Today at a press conference in San Francisco we announced the general availability of our Dell cloud solutions. One of the solutions we debuted was the Dell Cloud Solution for Data Analytics, a combination of our PowerEdge C servers with Aster Data’s nCluster, a massively parallel processing database with an integrated analytics engine.

Earlier this week I stopped by Aster Data‘s headquarters in San Carlos, CA and met up with their EVP of marketing, Sharmila Mulligan. I recorded this video where Sharmila discusses the Dell and Aster solution and the fantastic results a customer is seeing with it.

Some of the ground Sharmila covers:

  • What customer pain points and problems does this solution address (hint: organizations trying to manage huge amounts of both structured and unstructured data)
  • How Aster’s nCluster software is optimized for Dell PowerEdge C2100 and how it provides very high performance analytics as well as a cost effective way to store very large data.
  • (2:21) InsightExpress, a leading provider of digital marketing research solutions, has deployed the Dell and Aster analytics solution and has seen great results:
    • Up and running w/in 6 weeks
    • Queries that took 7-9 minutes now run in 3 seconds

Pau for now…
