HPE Packages BlueData and Apollo for Canned AI Infrastructure

Hewlett Packard Enterprise has packaged Big Data software, hardware, and services to make it faster and easier for enterprises to deploy artificial intelligence and machine learning applications. Five months after acquiring start-up BlueData, HPE this week announced a new offering that integrates HPE Apollo hardware and HPE Pointnext consulting services with BlueData software, which provides a virtualized container environment that allows for simple, one-click deployment of AI and analytics tools, the company said. The HPE package allows application developers, data scientists, and data engineers to focus on analytics instead of infrastructure needs, Patrick Osborne, HPE’s VP of Big Data and secondary storage, said. “We just want them to worry about data modeling and data engineering as opposed to futzing around with infrastructure,” he said.
