Executive Opinion

In the HPE blog post announcement, Anant Chintamaneni, Vice President and General Manager of HPE Ezmeral, said, "The nature of SQL-based interactive workloads have dramatically changed in the last decade. Canned business intelligence and reporting on data warehouses have evolved to more sophisticated ad-hoc analytics at higher scale and more diverse data. Current on-premises SQL tools are rigid, slow, and opinionated to specific underlying storage technology such as HDFS. New innovations are required to address the challenge of high data movement costs, as well as data residency requirements."

HPE's Ampool Acquisition

HPE intends to leverage Ampool’s technology components as well as Ampool's open-source expertise to its HPE Ezmeral portfolio. Once integration completes, HPE plans to offer a set of SQL acceleration services through its HPE GreenLake cloud platform, notes the announcement.

Ampool stack will be a key ingredient in making HPE Ezmeral analytics runtime for interactive SQL workloads, enhance the overall quality. Ampool will join the HPE Ezmeral software organization. 

HPE envisages its HPE Ezmeral as a software platform for data-intensive workloads and trying to address challenges with on-premises SQL technologies and with a hybrid cloud.
