Dell Technologies and Kinetica utilized the high-performance and flexible Dell EMC PowerFlex software-defined infrastructure platform to support high-volume, high-velocity data ingest and analytical processing requirements. Kinetica combines historical and streaming data analysis with powerful location intelligence, graph, text search and machine learning algorithms in a single platform, all easily accessible via REST API and SQL, for instant results.
Dell EMC PowerFlex provides highly resilient, scalable, and persistent storage, while providing broad GPU and CPU options to optimize customer-specific scenarios. Additionally, PowerFlex offers extreme flexibility in terms of infrastructure architecture and support for operating environments suited for the precise needs of customers.
This paper provides guidance on planning, deploying, and configuring the components to build the Kinetica Database (DB) platform on Dell EMC PowerFlex family. The workloads running on the Kinetica platform consume storage that is provided by PowerFlex.
