HP is rolling out a new version of HP Neoview today. The HP Neoview Advantage has been upgraded on both the software and hardware fronts. The hardware change is to the HP Integrity BladeSystem giving the solution a more modular design and allowing for a smaller footprint especially on larger configurations. HP has added more power to address real-time demands coming from their customer base by using the Neoview Transporter product to supply the appliance with a streaming real-time information feed. Improvements in I/O have provided for faster scans and higher performance on complex queries.

The best part of the offering is that the system is designed to allow for mixed work loads and can handle both transactional and analytical demands at the same time. Its a true appliance solution as its a pre-configured hardware and software bundled solution.

I'm glad to see an announcement from HP on Neoview the industry is hearing a lot from the competition in this space Oracle, Teradata, Netezza and IBM have all had large user conferences in the past 6 weeks unveiling new strategies around appliance style solutions. The competition is getting fast and furious in the 4th quarter of 2009.

Wow! the day just blew by and I didn't manage to get anything online so brace for a string of news updates because the information flowing from Oracle OpenWorld is streaming at high speed.  Lots of great announcements. I have four interviews scheduled for the morning so look for coverage there as well.

I have to say my favorite announcement this week was the $10 Million Dollar Challenge issued by Oracle to IBM. Here's the deal:

Your Company Could Win $10 Million!

If your Oracle database application doesn't run at least twice as fast on SUN hardware as on IBM's fastest computer, your company could win $10 million from Oracle. Even IBM is welcome to enter the $10 Million Challenge!

My favorite part is the where they say IBM can enter too. Larry Ellison gets knocked around a lot for being aggressive and ultra competitive but I have to admit I am really liking it. I'm tired of the same old tired CEO speak littered with phrases like "we have our heads down and are riding out the tough economy" or giving guidance to Wall Street on expected soft performance etc. Ellison has the attitude of GAME ON!! lets be competitive and do battle, the heck with the economy I'm buying Sun and GoldenGate and I'm getting in to the hardware business too. Leadership like this is what makes winners and Mr. Ellison doesn't like to lose.

I think the attitude is well timed, and has added a level of energy to an event like OpenWorld that can only come from a charismatic CEO. It will be entertaining to see what the responses are from Oracle competitors especially IBM.

Things continue to evolve in a positive direction for Dataupia Corporation; they are announcing the placement of Tony Sirianni as president and Chief Executive Officer. Founder Foster Hinshaw, and CTO John O'Brien, will continue to drive the technology side of the company. Sirianni brings over 18 years of Business Intelligence experience to the company, his most recent experience coming from Cognos as SVP Worldwide Field Operations.

The addition of Sirianni marks a turning point for Dataupia as it leaves its start up roots behind and aligns the company for the next step forward. Sirianni's background is focused on revenue growth and go to market strategies that will surely enhance the good things already in place at Dataupia.

Kognitio announced a new customer win this week: the National Center for Genome Resources is using the Kognitio solution to process multiple terabytes of sequencing data.

Kognitio is finding a great opportunity in the bioinformatics field and it seems to be setting them apart from many of their competitors. They've done a solid job of not only meeting the analytic needs of NCGR but also positioning themselves as a partner for the future needs of the group. The ability to bring specialty or highly focused analytics to this space is a good move for the company.

Kognitio is doing a great job of executing on their expansion into the US market and has now announced several high profile clients in the US. With additions to the marketing, sales and executive ranks here in the states they are going to be a significant player as more end users look to the market for innovative solutions. I have to say that I'm also a big fan of the flexibility of the solution it includes a Data warehouse as a Service (DaaS) offering that can be hosted on either side of your firewall.

The timing of this lawsuit is interesting as it seems that XPrime waited to sue DATAllegro and founder Stuart Frost until after Microsoft announced its plan to acquire the company***. The complaint was filed yesterday in U.S. District Court in San Diego filed by Cary A. Jardin, the founder of XPrime, he claimed that DATAllegro CEO Stuart Frost used his access privileges while he was at XPrime in 2003 to steal information about technology that Jardin was then in the process of patenting. The patent titled "System and Method for Generating and Processing Results Data in a Distributed System," was granted to Jardin on February 13, 2007.

ComputerWorld reports that:

According to the suit, Frost "attempted to convert Jardin's inventions to his own by filing with the USPTO patent applications in the distributed database architecture field the same subject matter as Jardin's intellectual property." Moreover, the suit alleges that Frost "used and incorporated Jardin's intellectual property into Datallegro's products," adding that the unauthorized use of the technology "continues to this day."

Stuart Frost has responded to the filing here at BeyeBlogs.com on the DATAllegro blog.

***According to Benjamin Romano at the Seattle Times the attorney for Jardin stated "Because of the severity of the apparent infringement, the issue was raised as soon as possible after thoroughly investigating the matter."

A couple other perspectives on the story can be found here:
