The new Urika-GX is tuned for highly iterative and interactive analytics

Cray's new Urika-GX is tailor-made for analytics.

Due to be available in the third quarter, Urika-GX promises data scientists new levels of performance and the ability to find insight in massive data sets quickly.

Urika-GX enables concurrent workloads using Hadoop, Spark and graph technologies.

"With some big data systems, you get a big pile of hardware and a recipe book," Waite explained.

There's 35 TB of SSD storage and 192 TB of hard-drive storage per rack.

Looking ahead, ESG predicts that an increasing proportion of the market will opt for this option as their primary deployment model because of benefits including performance, time-to-value and supportability, he said.
