Kognitio Offers Analytics Platform via Amazon Web Services

Kognitio, provider of big data analytics and analytics in the cloud, has announced the general availability of its in-memory analytical platform via Amazon Web Services (AWS). This expansion of Kognitio Cloud provides customers with the industry’s widest range of cloud-based Platform as a Service (PaaS) offerings for companies seeking to leverage their big data. Kognitio clients can cut costs by choosing how they want to perform data analytics and where they want to store that data.

Kognitio Cloud offers multi-node capability via AWS’ Cluster Compute, with multi-terabyte in-memory analytics, as well as single-node capability as an Amazon Machine Image (AMI), a pre-configured image on the Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2) service. “Public cloud allows people to elastically scale up or scale down. The cost entry point of accessing our environment collapses enormously,” explains Kognitio senior vice president John Coppins.  “It makes everything a lot more accessible for a much wider population.” This makes Kognitio Cloud an ideal platform for start-ups and small and mid-sized enterprises, but also for large organizations as they scale up.

By making their in-memory analytical platform available on AWS, Kognitio seeks to provide clients with greater capacity to tackle business challenges while keeping down costs. According to Kognitio, companies using Kognitio Cloud can run queries for as little as 64 cents per hour with a full production license, allowing customers to test drive the product without a major financial commitment. “For small and mid-sized companies, they can dip their toe in the water and try it out,” John Hiskey, vice president of marketing and business development at Kognitio, tells 5 Minute Briefing. Companies today are more adept at doing analytics in the cloud than they were in the past, and “since the data originates in the cloud, the concept of doing your analytics on it in the cloud is not a big jump,” Hiskey explains.
