Over the last ten years, LexisNexis Risk Solutions has developed what it calls a High Performance Computing Cluster, a proprietary method for processing and analyzing large volumes of data for its clients in finance, utilities and government. The company this week made HPCC open source and spun-off HPCC Systems to develop and market the technology.
LexisNexis is positioning HPCC as a competitor to Apache Hadoop, the open source software framework for Big Data processing and analytics. The entry of LexisNexis and HPCC into the Big Data ecosystem is yet another validation of the Big Data space and should spur innovation from all parties – HPCC, Hadoop and others.
