Cisco UCS is designed to simplify and accelerate deployment of enterprise-class applications and services running either on premise, virtualized or in cloud-computing environments. When paired with Pentaho Big Data Analytics, it allows businesses to significantly reduce time-to-value and operating expenses associated with big data projects.

  • Cisco UCS 2200 Series Fabric Extenders
  • Cisco UCS C240 M3 Rack-Mount Servers based on IntelÒ XeonÒ E-2600 series processors
  • Cisco UCS P81E Virtual Interface Card

  • Complete business analytics for big data – Pentaho’s end-to-end platform combines data integration and business analytics with capabilities from standard reporting and dashboards to data discovery and predictive analytics.
  • Rapid time to value – Pentaho’s visual interface enables users without Hadoop expertise to easily load and process data from Hadoop quickly and analyze their data in a visual environment.
  • Unified information systems – Pentaho eliminates big data “silos” with its ability to easily design sophisticated workflows that orchestrate events that span big data and traditional data platforms.
  • Reduced costs –  Pentaho empowers organizations to leverage existing skill sets to quickly implement big data solutions that streamlines analytics and data needs into one easy-to-use platform.
  • Broad big data options – Pentaho’s support for all major big data platforms — including Hadoop, NoSQL and the analytical databases — provides maximum flexibility for businesses.
  • World-class support – Should a critical system fail, businesses receive world-class service and support from both Cisco and Pentaho. Pentaho’s comprehensive service and support spans design, installation, configuration and deployment and testing of strategic big data solutions.

“This joint effort makes Pentaho available to the expanding group of Cisco’s customers that is constantly looking for new ways to help streamline and simplify data center operations,” said Eddie White, Executive Vice President of Business Development at Pentaho. “Pentaho gives these enterprises confidence that their developers and analysts can use one integrated solution for business analytics and data integration to get up to speed fast with big data initiatives.”
